This morning, someone told the President of the United States that cable news hosts said some things about him and he responded by calling one of them “low I.Q. Crazy” and the other “Psycho,” and said he turned them both away from his palatial beachfront resort estate over New Year’s.
The president was apparently responding to hearing criticism second-hand by MSNBC hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough of ‘poorly rated’ “Morning Joe.” To cap off the hot take, Trump even mentioned ‘low I.Q. Crazy’ Brzezinski was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” in the 8:58 a.m. tweet.
The hosts were apparently poking fun at a report this week that Trump has several faked Time magazine covers hanging in properties he owns just before the tweets.
After Trump released his morning affirmation, both of South Carolina’s U.S. senators responded:
Lindsey Graham called the president’s words ‘beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics.’
Tim Scott took no issue with the content of the president’s criticism, but urged him not to be distracted from health care and tax reform.
