After President Donald Trump lambasted “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski Thursday morning on Twitter, MSNBC released a statement calling it a “sad day for America.”
Trump tweeted several inflammatory opinions, calling Brzezinski “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” and saying that he had seen Brzezinski “bleeding badly from a face-lift.”
“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,” an MSNBC spokesperson responded.
