Mika Brzezinski on Trump’s Twitter attack: ‘It does worry me about the country’

The Washington Post — Written by J. Freedom du Lac and Jenna Johnson

The morning after being viciously attacked by President Trump on Twitter, MSNBC co-host Mika Brzezinski said she wasn’t exactly reeling as a result of the president’s vulgar and deeply personal social media assault.

But, she said Friday on “Morning Joe,” she is concerned about what Trump’s tweets reveal.

“I’m fine,” Brzezinski said. “My family brought me up really tough. This is absolutely nothing for me personally. But I’m very concerned about what this once again reveals about the president of the United States.”

She added: “It does worry me about the country.”

Said her co-host, Joe Scarborough: “We’re okay. The country is not.”

Trump lashed out at the MSNBC co-hosts just after their show Thursday morning, calling Brzezinski “low I.Q. Crazy Mika”— and claiming she “was bleeding badly from a facelift” when she and Scarborough came to Mar-a-Lago — the president’s private club in Palm Beach, Fla. — three nights in a row late last year.

Trump also referred to Scarborough as “Psycho Joe” in his tweets, which caused an immediate and sustained uproar.
