President Donald Trump loves to watch the ratings. This morning, he tweaked the lion’s tail against MSNBC’s low-rated Morning Joe, targeting the show’s ratings and in particular cohost Mika Brzezinski, calling her a “ditzy airhead.”
Naturally, Brzezinski hit back. She said on air that the President is scared of women and labeled his pandemic efforts as “disastrous.”
The dust-up continues the multiple battles the President has had with the Morning Joe hosts, topped by Trump’s promotion of a conspiracy theory that Scarborough was involved in an intern’s death while he was a Florida Congressman.
Brzezinski claimed the President had been “completely strung” out over presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s pick of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as his running mate in the 2020 election.
Trump gets “really” stressed out by women, Brzezinski said, adding that he went scurrying off “like a little baby” when confronted by female reporters.
Brzezinski then took Trump to task over his coronavirus failings:
“I just wonder what ditzy means? Because if I’m ditzy, you’re disastrous. This has been a disaster. 167,000 people are dead, Donald Trump. Stop tweeting about Morning Joe and Morning Mika and do your damn job.”
