The New York Post has reported that MSNBC’s “Morning Joe’s” co-hosts, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, have delayed the vacation they were supposed to take during the fourth of July holiday, only to respond to Trump’s Thursday tweets which slammed the two hosts over their physical appearance and mental health.
Trump tweeted on Thursday, “I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then 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 NY Post was told by an unnamed source from MSNBC, that “Joe and Mika were supposed to start their July 4th weekend early by taking Friday off — but following Trump’s tweet, they postponed their trip by day so they can be back on air Friday morning to sling some ‘bad blood’ back at Trump.”
Conservative radio show host, Rush Limbaugh, also seemed to confirm the incident at Mar-a-Lago. However, he claimed that the incident occurred back in 2012.
Limbaugh said, “It was 2012. So five years ago, and I believe it was a Friday afternoon. I’m sitting here minding my own business, and I get a note that Mika Brzezinski and Scarborough are in town. There’s something going on in town that they’re here, they’re here making an appearance. It might have been Horowitz’s Restoration Weekend or some such thing as that. I think it was at The Breakers. And they asked to come by.”
“I met Scarborough a long, long time ago,” Limbaugh added. “He was a member of the freshman class in 1994. I had never met Mika Brzezinski.”
He continued, “We got there right at five o’clock, right as Trump was meeting with the Tuesday group, a group of Republican House members. There were 17 ‘no’ votes. We watched the whole thing, right off Oval Office. He converted 16 of those votes to ‘yes’ votes. … At dinner, I don’t know how it came up, he asked me if I knew Scarborough and I said, ‘Yeah, I’ve met him.’ He said, ‘Those two are weird.’ And I just sat there. He said, ‘Yeah, New Year’s Eve, they call, they begged to come to Mar-a-Lago. They want to be around me. They come to Mar-a-Lago. I said, ‘I gotta let ’em in, I’m president-elect, they want to come.’ I didn’t want them there, but they wanted to come. And they hang out for all three days, and I kind of felt obligated to have ’em.’”
Limbaugh further stated that he’s been brushing off attacks from the two TV hosts, even though they have been “going after” for quite some time. He added that he doesn’t expect Trump to brush it off though, since he’s a “fighter.”
