NEW: ‘Morning Joe’ host responds to Trump’s tweets, makes a dig at PBC


Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, co-hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” responded this morning to President Donald Trump’s tweets about them and made a small dig at Palm Beach County in the process.

On Thursday, the hosts mocked the president’s fake Time Magazine cover, which prompted Trump to fire off two tweets (below) attacking the show and Brzezinski’s face lift.

Brzezinski responded directly to the New Year’s Eve incident at Mar-a-Lago on Friday morning’s MSNBC broadcast, approximately 7½ minutes into the segment

“We did not want to go to Mar-a-Lago,” Brzezinski said before adding that they eventually did go to conduct an interview. 

“We were shuffled into side room, which was actually a bedroom, talked for 20 minutes and we left through this party of people dressed to the nines,” Brzezinski said. “Talk about face lifts. Whoa, Palm Beach.”

>> Scarborough, Brzezinski respond to Trump's tweet; question his mental health

The hosts spent the rest of the show pointing out what they called lies in Trump’s tweets before questioning the president's mental state and involvement with a blackmail scheme involving The National Enquirer

President Trump tweeted this after the show. 


Scarborough added to the social media fight with the responses below.
