MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough ripped the quality of President Trump’s insults on Monday morning. “If you’re going to insult somebody, make it work,” said Scarborough.
After displaying some of Trump’s recent tweets attacking the media, along with the timing of the messages, Scarborough said: “He’s president of the United States and all he does is watch TV… and comment on it.”
“This is very small behavior that is so unbecoming,” Brzezinski added. “He’s like a little kid.”
The pair also defended MSNBC’s “MTP Daily” host Chuck Todd, who Trump has nicknamed “Sleepy Eyes” when insulting him on Twitter.
“I never got that sleepy eyes Chuck Todd thing,” Scarborough said. “His eyes are not sleepy, they’re awake.”
Scarborough and Brzezinski have a bizarre relationship with Trump. They were early supporters and were once accused of feeding him questions during an MSNBC town hall. Scarborough has been spotted at Trump’s Florida resort as a New Year’s Eve party was kicking off; he was also seen clapping for Trump during the recent join address to Congress.
“Morning Joe” has since emerged as a show that is now extremely critical of Trump and his administration. Brzezinski has said that people are “scared,” and famously banned White House senior aide Kellyanne Conway from appearing on the MSNBC morning show.
On Monday, Brzezinski said that Trump has ruined anything good he’s attempted to do with his “stupid tweets.” Scarborough suggested that the president watch “Billions” instead.
