Two rounds of a vulgar Twitter fight between Donald Trump and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski has lawmakers questioning Trump’s mental fitness for the office of the presidency.

Politics
In an unexpected war of words last week against the MSNBC hosts, Trump took to Twitter to say he “heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore).” He then went after Brzezinski, saying “how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came … to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

The graphic and personal attacks instigated by Trump were immediately condemned by several top Republicans, who considered his nasty Twitter rant beneath the dignity of a president.

“Obviously, I don’t see that as an appropriate comment,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said on Thursday, adding, “Look, what we’re trying to do around here is improve the tone, the civility of the debate, and this obviously doesn’t help do that.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham echoed similar sentiments, saying, “Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America.” He later added that Trump’s insult was “highly inappropriate” regardless of any impact it might have on distracting from the GOP agenda and that Trump should apologize.

On Saturday, a defiant Donald Trump ignored calls to retract his remarks and instead, returned to Twitter to double-down with additional attacks.

“Crazy Joe Scarborough and dumb as a rock Mika are not bad people, but their low rated show is dominated by their NBC bosses. Too bad!” Trump tweeted Saturday morning.

On Friday, Scarborough and Brzezinski responded to Trump’s attacks with a Washington Post opinion piece entitled “Donald Trump Is Not Well.”

“America’s leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president,” they wrote. “We have our doubts, but we are both certain that the man is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show, ‘Morning Joe.'”

During their Friday “Morning Joe” broadcast, they also accused the Trump White House of threatening them with a National Enquirer hit piece if they didn’t change their news coverage of Trump. As expected, Trump called the accusation “FAKE NEWS” and added that Scarborough “called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show.”

His showdown with the MSNBC hosts was followed on Sunday by a Twitter video post from Trump showing him beating up a man with a CNN logo displayed in place of his face.  The post was highlighted with the text #FNN – FRAUD NEWS NETWORK.

Politics
In a desperate attempt to defend “The Donald,” Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was sent before the media to clean up her boss’ mess.

“Look, the American people elected a fighter. They didn’t elect somebody to sit back and do nothing,” Sanders said, adding that Trump “fights fire with fire.”

twitter fight“I don’t think that the President’s ever been someone who gets attacked and doesn’t push back. There have been an outrageous number of personal attacks not just to him but people around him.”

Trump’s Twitter fight proves that he wants to rule instead of govern. “The Donald” doesn’t yet realize that as an elected official, his performance is open to scrutiny and critique. This is not North Korea. Trump is not owed, nor should he expect sovereignty.

Perhaps Donald Trump was picked on as a kid. Perhaps he was made fun of as a teen. However, as a 70-year-old senior citizen, it’s time to accept that not everyone will like him or his decisions. As president, he simply can not personally pick-off each detractor one by one. To do so means Trump is delegitimizing his presidency, one tweet at a time.

Is Donald Trump truly fit for the office of the presidency?

Is Donald Trump truly fit for the office of the presidency? […] Of course not. But then most Americans knew he wasn't fit for the job prior to his decision to run for president, which is why Hillary won the popular vote. Heck even Trump, and his family, know that he is in no way, shape, or form fit for the job. SEE the shock on his/and their faces when he won. That was NOT the plan. But Trump did win. And he won in large part thanks to the American news media …and in particular thanks to media hypocrites like Joe and Mika who were quite chummy with Trump during most of the Repub primaries and certainly during the general campaign against Hillary. I haven't really heard, or read, any explanation as to why their friendship with Trump turned sour. As I recall, things began to go downhill between… Read more »

Trump's Twitter fight proves that he wants to rule instead of govern.

This sentence right here says it all. Trump thinks he is a king and is just using the president office to get back at people he doesn't like. He's also high on power which is why he's always telling people I'm president and you're not. From what I see in the poll it looks like everybody agrees 100 percent that him tweeting all the daggone time is below the presidency. So I'm real tired of hearing people say they are waiting for him to pivot and become presidential. Like Maya Angelo said when people show you who they are believe them. Trump showed himself a long time ago. His actions should be no surprise to anybody.

…..and on a related note……. Just as I suspected – a good chunk of the people who voted for this dangerous clown have a lot in common with him on a personal basis. They're "NOT well" …and also, they're NOT too bright. . ‘Calling for a revolution!’: Trump fans ‘triggered’ after NPR tweets out the Declaration of Independence For 29 years, National Public Radio’s “Morning Edition” has celebrated the Fourth of July with a reading of the Declaration of Independence by hosts, reporters, newscasters and commentators. This historically uncontroversial testament to the nation’s founding document proved uncontroversial-no-more in the year 2017. After NPR tweeted the accompanying text of the declaration line by line, Donald Trump backers (seemingly unaware of the source document) accused the media organization of playing partisan politics and attacking the president. “So, NPR is calling for a revolution,” Twitter user @JustEsrafel wrote. “Propaganda is that all you… Read more »

In response to Trump voters NOT recognizing the Declaration of Independence.

RS writer: :
See? This is why people have a problem with the Trump faithful. [..]

RS Reader:
How do people not recognize that document? How could it possibly trigger those comments in some that it referenced Trump? We used to have to memorize that document. How shockingly ignorant our citizens are.[…]

Fri, July 7, 2017 New Century Times (NCT) …a German paper called Der Spiegel, has perfectly put into words how most sane Americans, nay, the world, feels about Trump. The author is Klaus Brinkbäumer. The article is titled “It’s Time to Get Rid of Donald Trump” — “A Danger to the World.” Excerpt: Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States. He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it. He doesn't read. He doesn't bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees. He doesn't bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as… Read more »
