'Morning Joe' hosts fire back at Trump

Mika Brzezinski
and Joe Scarborough fired back at Donald Trump on their "Morning Joe" show on MSNBC this morning following his Twitter blast at them yesterday.

They say he lied about a December encounter and also said his "unhealthy obsession" with them doesn't serve him or the country well. "We're OK," they said. "The country is not."

Really. The leader of the world's mightiest country is hurling schoolyard name-calling at cable TV talkers, with a supporting chorus froma petulant Arkansas-born deputy secretary and his own wife. You don't expect him to sit silently when someone criticizes him, do you? That was Sarah Huckabee Sanders' huffy defense.

Well, yes. Why shouldn't we be able to expect a little dignity from the person in the White House? Did Barack Obama Tweet about the abuse heaped on him by Fox News commentators and others? Did he call Hannity "Psycho Sean"? Talk about "Low IQ Laura Ingraham?"

Again, and unfortunately, Trump knows what works with his people.  "They knew what they were getting when they voted for Donald Trump," said Sanders. Sigh. Yes, they did.

UPDATE: The story heats up with allegations that the National Enquirer sicced reporters on Brezezinsky and people in the Trump White House signaled to Scarborough that the dogs would be called off if he apologized to Trump. Enquirer and Trump deny.
