Presidential? No. But that's what his voters wanted, right?

Posted By on Thu, Jun 29, 2017 at 10:21 AM

Donald Trump went nuts on Twitter this morning, slamming the hosts of "Morning Joe," including a reference to a supposedly "bleeding" Mika Brzezinski.

CNN's report quotes both Trump's wife Melania (calling her "first lady" seems inappropriate in this context) and deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defending Trump.

"As the First Lady has stated publicly in the past, when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder," her communications director Stephanie Grisham said in response to reporters' questions.

Melania Trump has previously said that as First Lady she wants to focus on the problem of cyberbullying.

The president's deputy press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, was asked about the offensive tweets during an interview on Fox News Thursday morning.

Sanders suggested that Trump was responding to the "outrageous attacks that take place" on "Morning Joe" and other shows.

"This is a president who fights fire with fire," Sanders said, adding that the president refused to be "bullied."
Whining snowflakes need a safe room, don't you think? The suggestion that you can bully a man in the possession of the nuclear football says a whole lot more about Trump's insecurity than about Mika and Joe.
