Trump Goes After “I.Q. Crazy” Mika, “Psycho” Joe on Twitter
Mika hits back on the social media platform.
President Donald Trump took to Twitter to unleash his anger on Morning Joe and its hosts Mika Brzezinki and Joe Scarborough.
He wrote that he heard the show “speaks badly” of him, but wants to know why “I.Q. Crazy Mika” and “Psycho Joe” went to Mar-a-Lago for three nights around News Year Eve and asked to meet with him. Then Trump claimed Mika “was bleeding badly from a facelift” so he said no.
Of course Mika didn’t let this stand and responded on Twitter.
…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!

An MSNBC spokesperson released this statement, according to CNNMoney:
“It’s a sad day for America when the president spends his time bullying, lying and spewing petty personal attacks instead of doing his job.”
Here is Mika’s response:

Joe did release this anti-Trump music video. Our own Mark Finkelstein has chronicled the shows when Joe called Trump a schmuck and jackass.
During the GOP primary, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) made a remark to counter Trump always calling him “little Marco.” From ABC News:
“He is taller than me, he’s like 6′ 2″, which is why I don’t understand why his hands are the size of someone who is 5′ 2″,” Rubio joked. “Have you seen his hands? And you know what they say about men with small hands — ”
The crowd erupted.
” — You can’t trust them,” Rubio said.
The left immediately latched on and has used it against Trump numerous times.
Tomorrow’s Morning Joe should be interesting. I’m sure Mark will be up to watch if the morning hosts bring up the tweets on the show. Until then, here are a few reactions:

This has to stop – we all have a job – 3 branches of gov’t and media. We don’t have to get along, but we must show respect and civility.

The Trump/Mika thing is a wash and everyone gains: Morning Joe accomplishes daily mission to go viral while Trump supporters love the retort

Again, "everyone" is all parties involved. My earlier tweet condemns this kind of crap on both sides.

If only “Morning Joe” had known when it was promoting Trump in 2015 that this would end with “Mika had a facelift” tweets

The History Behind the Donald Trump ‘Small Hands’ Insult: Nearly 30 years ago, Graydon Carter, the editor of Vanity Fair magazine, described Trump in Spy magazine as a “short-fingered vulgarian.”
I don’t know why people down vote facts and links that don’t express an actual opinion one way or the other. Since it’s just another data point showing the small hand thing isn’t new, the post adds to communal knowledge. Which boils down to- Trump isn’t liked by the self proclaimed elites.
I wonder when people will start being scared that Trump will name them the same way basket players were scared that Jordan would “posterize” them.
There is absolutely no reason that PDT should allow these two morons to constantly make degrading and puerile statements about him without any pushback. PDT is basking in the annihilation of CNN and most def should continue the crusade to marginalize the opinions of the anti-Trump crowd.
Now, if he’d only smack Claire McCaskill by tweeting about her lies about not meeting the Russian ambassador several times and even contributing to his ‘foundation’ with $ from her own (hidden from her financial disclosure statements for years) foundation. One Tweet from him would insure that the MSM would at least make mention of those lies and fraudulent financial disclosure statements because as of now only readers of Breitbart are aware.
That tweet by Trump cements his title as Troll GrandMaster!!!
See what he did there? He didn’t talk about politics, or try to defend himself, or anything. He went straight for the jugular by saying that Joe’s girlfriend is an ugly old hag who’s trying to use surgery to pretend to be beautiful, but it went wrong and made her look like a freak.
And Donald’s smirk doesn’t need any words to say “My girls better looking than your girl, nyah nyah, nyah”
Like I said, Troll – Grandmaster Level!!
I’m an “older lady” who was brought up to believe that men were to protect their women- open doors, walk on the outside of the sidewalk, keep children from being disrespectful (especially of their mothers), etc. However, society has changed. Saying “Yessir or Yes Ma’am” only incites liberals to mockery and/or violence. Liberal women don’t want to be “ladies”- they have become crude imitations of men by using vulgarities (see Kirstin Gilibrand). Feminists have adopted all of the behaviors of the men’s locker room, but then, they claim horror and insult, if they attack a man and he retaliates.
Mika has always reminded me of the EVIL, BACKSTABBING character in “Cruel Intentions,” Catherine Merkuel. I’ve found it amusing that “Morning Joe” frequently uses the music from that movie as bumper music- it’s SOOOOO appropriate for Mika. Mika, honey, we women have your number- we’ve known girls like you since 6th or 7th grade- you can put lots of honey on that knife you use to stab people in the back, but we know what you intend to do.
I’m glad President Trump has the “stones” to fight back. If Mika wants to play with the big boys, she’d better put on a cup!
I read the source article linked at Drudge and learned that referring to Mika’s face lift as “bleeding” is sexist. Who knew? Men never have facelifts I guess.
Yeah, cause…..like face lifts and blood are sexist!
ISIS says so!
MSNBC, PBS, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, New York Times, Washington Post, MSM….
CNN and The Fake News Collusion
The Truth About CNN
I read that it is a veiled reference to Lori Klausutis.
As in Lady macBeth unable to get the blood washed off.
NYC isn’t the only entity that remembers Shakespeare.
Look, the press has been publishing half truths and outright lies, about politicians, for 150 years and they have been getting away with it. What the press does with these anonymous sources and speculative inferences is tantamount to libel, or slander. But, career politicians have put up with it because they want to have a career in politics. Trump doesn’t. So, he hits back at the press using the same tactics that they use. And they hate him for it, because it works.
Trump kept saying that CNN, and other outlets were producing “fake news”. CNN gets caught doing just that and everyone nods and says, “Yep. Trump was right – “fake news”. Trump increases his credibility while undermining the credibility of his detractors in the press. You gotta love it when a plan comes together.
To look at it seriously, the left’s biggest mistake with Trump has been to vilify him so incessantly, to call him a monster, mentally deficient, mentally ill, the worst Hitler since Hitler, etc…
What that means is that now Trump is free to say anything, no matter how reprehensible, and the left has no language to use, no complaint to make, that they haven’t already done a thousand times. They haven’t restricted him with their criticism, they’ve freed him completely. Can they hate him any more than they already do? No. Can they do anything more to him than they have already done? No.
Would what they say about him change if he decided to “play nice”??? No.
So that means no rules, and play as dirty as possible. Why not?
It reminds me of the ending rap scene in “Eight Mile” (a terrible movie; if you’ve not seen it, you’re not missing much). The white wanna-be rapper (played by Eminem) faces off against the black wanna-be rapper in what basically amounts to an insult contest. He has lifestyle and personality issues that are well-known in the community, has been derided over them in similar contests the whole movie, losing every time, and is expected to lose this time, too, over the same issues.
So he takes a different approach: he raps about each of his own “social deficiencies”, in detail, and closes with a challenge: Tell the crowd something they don’t already know about me.
The black rapper chokes; he can’t think of anything new.
This is how I visualize Trump playing the MSM. He is what he is, they’ve already pounded him over what he is, trying to break him, but he survived. He’s just continuing to be himself and challenging them to come up with something new. They, of course, can’t, because there isn’t anything new.
Because he just is what he is.
And it makes them look like fools rehashing old news, trying to smear him over already-known and -acknowledged “social deficiencies”. And while the MSM is predictably apoplectic over something he tweeted, they’re not watching him, and he’s getting s#!+ done. Sure, they report on it, but not until days after the online alt-right media outlets cover it; the “current events” page is a week out-of-date, which just furthers the MSM’s embarrassment.
He has their number and understands them better than they understand themselves. And it will all happen again, predictably, next week.
It’s masterful, really. 🙂
A few Trillion times over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Welcome to political WrastleMania.
George W. Bush always worked to stay classy, strove to never sink to his critics level, did everything he could to keep a calm, level demeanor in the face of constant provocations, and I still admire him as being a Very Good Man to be able to persevere in the face of all of that.
But politically – did that ever do him one bit of good, ever? Was he ever thanked or even respected by the left for his constant civility? Yeah, you know the answer as well as I do – the left took that as a sign that he was too “stupid” to even answer them, and laughed at him for never fighting back.
I respect GWB’s personal choices, and I respect him as a man, but as far as a political strategy – yeah, we tried civility. It failed. MISERABLY! So, now, yeah, that’s over.
Yes, Bush should have fought back – but Karl Rove failed him completely.
The president has a lot of proxies to do his dirty work, enabling him to stay above the fray. Rove should have been on it. But the ENTIRE Bush White House let its ass hang in the air for 8 years.
Trump does it his way, but this blog – and others making Borderline Mika and Morning Joke – bear a lot of responsibility for making these otherwise irrelevant clowns useful idiot heroes.
Seems to me that “civility” only works when ALL parties are “civil.”
Katy’s already barred the door on that now!
Yep. Both Bush’s are good people. And too gentlemanly to get much accomplished.
Good people but not good presidents and disasters for GOPe, Reaganism and conservatism.
By tweeting about these two light-weights he gives them an importance they don’t deserve. Bad Trump.
They’ve got enough supposed “importance” that a writer here posts about them constantly. What other talk show gets that level of attention?
Consider that as part of DJT’s trolling. These two self-important, self-righteous nitwits are somehow given the keys to a nationally-syndicated show where their ONE JOB is to report what he’s doing, and he’s dancing circles around them while running a f@#$ing COUNTRY.
The Left is outraged by DJT’s tweets, but the right — DJT’s support base — sees this for what it is: DJT demonstrating for the world what biased, hateful, mindless little hive insects many in the MSM really are, and how their promotion to positions of influence is totally undeserved and disconnected from their knowledge, expertise, or wisdom.
In short, he’s not “giving them importance”; he’s shining a spotlight on their non-importance.
RE: “DJT demonstrating for the world what biased, hateful, mindless little hive insects many in the MSM really are, and how their promotion to positions of influence is totally undeserved and disconnected from their knowledge, expertise, or wisdom.

Except I believe from long observance that almost 100% of them are insect minded……….
This is brilliance. Watch and learn; we don’t often see this level of performance in government. Trump’s not quite as good a political dancer as, say, Lincoln or James Madison … yet … but he’s showing some serious talent.
For those too stupid, or unimaginative, or pig-headed to have noticed even after all this time—Trump is a master when it comes to economical use of the tools available.
In Trump’s place, would I use those tools the same way? Certainly not. But I’ve never claimed to be Presidential material. Official Washington would grind me up and spit me out in about five minutes. Trump is obviously far better tuned to the Washington snake-pit than someone like me would ever be. Is that a problem? Hell, no. He has a job to do. I’ll be happy if he’s effective, keeps it legal, and keeps it American. I don’t give a monkey’s flip if he doesn’t keep it polite.
Any wannabe-pundit who doesn’t recognize the value of Trump’s tweets should stop wasting everyone’s time and go back to cat-blogging.
MSM = “professional CAT BLOGGERS!”
LOL Ain’t that the truth!
The best part about this is that this Tweet is all the media is talking about while Congress is passing a bill to end funding to sanctuary cities.
And the travel ban goes into effect.
The media can’t chew gum and walk at the same time. “The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing.”
I don’t think these so called “nasty” Tweets from Trump and leaks of internal squabbles are random. They’re thought out and have a purpose.
The MSM is focusing on his small left hand, while his his right hand is signing papers and making Obama’s legacy and the Progressive agenda disappear.
Journalists – twenty-something, know-nothings….seems right….
Scarborough is PC hack who doesn’t know his A-hole from his ear-hole. Watching his reaction to the election is priceless. People like him don’t report the news. They shove their liberal hogwash down the throats of people who will listen.
All the people who are outraged by Trump’s tweets never voted for him anyway.
I’d rather watch the morning crap show than Paul Ryan.
So that’s what “her wherever” means.
What I am enjoying is the tut-tutting going on among the corrupt elites as they clutch their pearls in faux-moral outrage. Who do they think is the audience for these all-too-frequent drama queen exhibitions? “O-o-o-o-oh! The vapors! Catch me!”
Kick ass Donald!
While millions of Americans hate the press, the only one whose criticisms of the press get any press is Trump.
Yep, and that’s why his trolling is so much fun to watch.
The MSM’s only winning move in this is to not play the game.
But they Can’t. Not. Play.
And while they’re outraged and reporting on his “mean” tweets for a week, he’s getting s#!+ done. The online alt-right media is covering what he’s doing in real time, and the MSM covers it days after-the-fact, when it’s old news. The NYT, WaPo, and HuffPo are getting “scooped” across the board by sites like Breitbart, The Blaze, and LI, and it’s all the MSM’s own doing.
Because they Can’t. Not. Play.
They’re petulantly whining about how “mean” he is, but he’s got them figured out down to their collective(ist) cores.
And yesterday, Wolf Blitzer and a couple other CNN wusses were declaring that Trump’s tweeting is making it dangerous for reporters. Are these guys reading from an old B-movie sci-fi script someone left hanging around? Even the acting is awful.
How did being civil help Romney? If he showed any backbone or even a heartbeat he wouldn’t have gotten obliterated. Yes I realize he would have lost but damn it looked like he rolled over and offered his belly.
Honestly I’m tired of the GOP always saying they will be above that nonsense and then get killed by the Dems in the court of public opinion from simple barbs and insults.
I can only speculate how a sharp wit and prodigious writer like Alexander Hamilton would use twitter and the intermess in general ig he were with us now.
Meanwhile, there is a report of upheaval within the staff of the NY Times allegedly due to cutbacks and increasing pressure on reporters and editors. Therefore, I have a new idea for a reality show for Trump, this time to air on cable for mature content. He could be the head of a group that purchases the NYT company, and then he makes them all compete in stressful feats of strength and some journalism. When he cans someone, he will say, “You are F****** Fired!” and hand them a pink slip with it written on it.
I’d just like to see the looks on the faces of reporters at media company if they learned that Trump was the new boss.
I do believe there is a detractor in our midst; nearly every substantive comment, no matter how sensical and well-written, has at least one down vote.
Are we hitting a little too close to home for someone? 😉
She’s unemployed these days………
Funny how none of these people defended the President when he was getting hit with the sleaziest comments on a daily basis. But as soon as he dishes it back out, they are all over him like white on rice.
I noticed that and since my senator is one of the critical ones, I intend to call in tomorrow morning and suggest that he start defending Trump when everyone calls him crazy, a schmuck, homosexual, etc.
The Donald plays hardball. So if you attack him on TV you’re gonna suffer the consequences.
It’s now time for this blog to take some responsibility for this episode: Legalinsurrection.com has been played.
The blog has been featuring these two otherwise irrelevant morons, doting on every stupid word they say. By doing so, the blog has made them anti-conservative celebrities.
You might not know it, but the Trump White House just might look to this blog to see which way the wind is blowing. By giving so much attention to two clowns who no one would otherwise know, the blog might have influenced Trump in his focus on the Borderline Mika and Morning Joke.
So here we are. Let’s move on (Trump gets the obama/clinton media treatment: a complete pass). Let the democrat media ask what Trump obama/clinton softball questions like what he eats in the morning to make him so fabulous, etc. Otherwise, they’re irrelevant.
It’s incredibly poor taste on your part to both promote your own blog here by your username and proceed to trash the blog you are commenting on.
The one time I checked the blog, it hadn’t even been updated in a while and really didn’t discuss politics.
This is true. (Hence, my apparently good taste?
I stand by my comment: giving these idiots attention is giving these idiots power.
There are important news stories LegalInsurrection.com should be breaking and/or repeating.
The rantings of a couple of marginal corrupt, deluded a-holes aint’ one of them.
Again: attention is exactly what they wanted.
TheFineReport is political humor, bashing the left and the GOPe.
This is the kind of stuff we do:
“It’s now time for this blog to take some responsibility for this episode: Legalinsurrection.com has been played.”
You’ve lost your mind.
I think Trump could hit back against his detractors (even on Twitter) while doing it in a manner that doesn’t look as childish, semi-illiterate, crass, and thin-skinned. This kind of outburst appalls a lot of people who might otherwise be supportive, which isn’t a plus for himself, the GOP, or the country. An equally hard-hitting but somewhat classier approach would be more of a win-win.
Less mud-wrestling and more pile-driving. If you have to wrestle with pigs, at least try not to look like another one of the pigs.
Still better than President Hillary though.
“I think Trump could…”
He does it in the only way that works.
You have any evidence your way, whatever that might, be works?
How many times have we heard the MSM remark that Trump was “presidential”. They don’t praise him, so being a nice guy doesn’t work. Being a bit crude does play to his base.
I doubt that a lighter touch would do the job. Trump’s not just tweeting to entertain the audience; he’s punching these two right in their faces, and in a manner which is so obvious even they can’t miss it.
Were they more perceptive types, they wouldn’t have been carrying on these last few days about the incipient Trump dictatorship and such silliness; and more subtlety on Trump’s part might be more justified and more useful.
In 2018 and beyond the republicans who did not stand with Trump will be voted out of office. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with Trump’s tweets today. There is nothing wrong with making the factual observation that Crazy Mika was bleeding from a face lift and not appetizing company for lunch or dinner. Trump’s tweets were far more kind and understated than the daily bullcr*p put out by stupid Joe and Mika.
I don’t remember media faux feminist outrage soaking up all media discussion for a day or two when Obama: 1. Said Kamala Harris was best looking attorney general in the country; or 2. when Obama at a FUNERAL for Nelson Mandela busied himself with cozying up next to a leggy blonde in attendance and taking selfies DURING THE FUNERAL proceedings; or when Obama was caught on camera staring at some girls butt as she walked by him.
All of these things from Obama objectified women as the feminazis like to say, but no media outrage for days and whining about daughters and such.
Its all faux BS from the media and the left. The country knows it, and the country is with Trump.
Paul Ryan, Ben Sasse, and the usual GOPe suspects coming out against Trump instead of supporting him. Yet again!! Big surprise. Trump supporters need to remember to vote against all these people in 2018 or at first available date.
Make your predictions. Lay your bets.
We certainly know your track record:
Wrong every time. “Preference cascade”. Still makes me chuckle.
Hey, remember when you laughed at my predictions – Trump would win the R nomination and the be elected president, and the election wouldn’t even be close. Good times.
You were always wrong then. You’re wrong now.
You are the same liar you’ve always been.
But step up, and make your predictions and lay your bets.
“You are the same liar you’ve always been.”
I’d be embarrassed if I were you. I’ve never lied and you repeatedly do. Everyone knows this.
I’m not making any predictions for now. I made mine, and you know I was correct. No acknowledgment of that is just another of your lies. It’s all your good for.
Your wit is something to be marveled at.
It’s about as good as your track record.
Also, my wife just reminded me of Obama on Air Force One standing with his legs spread open and an obvious erection in front of a group of female reporters while they giggled and gave faux screams. Don’t remember any of these feminazi reporters’ heads exploding and full day coverage of this sexist, bullying, sexual assault by Obama.
Imagine what CNN and the rest of the fake news MSM coverage would have been if President Trump sported an erection for all the female reporters gathered on Air Force One.
Yes, the airplane incident actually shocked me.
Is Mika wearing Pajama Boy’s onesie in that picture?
Yeah but I think they belong to Little Joe because she made a comment about the crotch being to snug.
Really, a thumb down for that A+ material? If I find out the fargin corksucker who sumalanbatchin down thumbed me I’ll kick your icehole.
“Wear pajamas. Drink hot chocolate. Talk about getting mental health insurance.”
The worst part about Bush taking the high road is that he left the rest of us down in the mud, trying to defend him with no ammo.
This is true.
And the “high road” is a bunch of crap: it’s just away to avoid the hard work of confrontation.
Just ask rino scum ryan and mcconnell.
Frankly, I didn’t feel impelled to defend Bush.
1. Religion of Peace?
2. Signed McCain Feingold; if it’s unconstitutional, let SCOTUS figure it out.
3. His sister in law is Mexican so of course we couldn’t enforce the law against illegal aliens.
4. Etc. etc.
Conveniently the media forgets when obama got nasty and personal in public. Calling a Cambridge cop stupid even though he didn’t have all the facts. It’s OK to call out white males because you can’t be racist or sexist against them.
Am I the only one that didn’t know about Lori Klausutis, who was found dead in Joe Scarborough’s office in 2001? Her head was bashed in but she died of a “heart attack”. Very strange.
Just like every other progressive they can dish it out, but they can’t take it. That Donny Deutsch is a moron. He was a rich spoiled kid who inherited his fathers business.
