President Trump has a new target in his war of words with “Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski: their NBC bosses.“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 at 9:20 am Saturday.It’s the latest salvo in the battle between Trump and the cable television hosts, which erupted Thursday when Trump tweeted about the pair.“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!” Trump tweeted Thursday.The social media sniping with the “Morning Joe” anchors sparked bipartisan criticism, and Brzezinski fired back by posting a picture of a cereal ad about ‘little hands.’
Trump began his Saturday morning online with a tweet of support for cable news anchor Greta Van Susteren, who was fired from MSNBC Thursday.
“Word is that @Greta Van Susteren was let go by her out of control bosses at @NBC & @Comcast because she refused to go along w/ ‘Trump hate!’” President Trump tweeted at 8:59 a.m.
The former Fox News host’s MSNBC show lasted just six months. AdWeek reported she had the No. 30-rated cable news show. Her main competition at 6 p.m., Fox Newser Bret Baier, ranks No. 5.
The Tweeter-in-Chief also took a slam at CNN in his Saturday-morning tweet storm.
“I am extremely pleased to see that @CNN has finally been exposed as #FakeNews and garbage journalism. It’s about time!” he wrote at 9:12 am Saturday.
The embattled network was forced to retract a story about the Russian scandal last week, prompting three staffers to resign.
