Joe and Mika co-author op-ed in response to Trump tweets.

The op-ed appears over on the Washington Post.

Here is a sample:President Trump launched personal attacks against us Thursday, but our concerns about his unmoored behavior go far beyond the personal. America’s leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president. We have our doubts, but we are both certain that the man is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show, “Morning Joe.” 

The president’s unhealthy obsession with our show has been in the public record for months, and we are seldom surprised by his posting nasty tweets about us. During the campaign, the Republican nominee called Mika “neurotic” and promised to attack us personally after the campaign ended. This year, top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the president to have the story spiked. We ignored their desperate pleas.

The president’s unhealthy obsession with “Morning Joe” does not serve the best interests of either his mental state or the country he runs. Despite his constant claims that he no longer watches the show, the president’s closest advisers tell us otherwise. That is unfortunate. We believe it would be better for America and the rest of the world if he would keep his 60-inch-plus flat-screen TV tuned to “Fox & Friends.”

The article goes on to debunk much of what Trump claimed in his tweet.

Including the fact that Mika was bleeding from a recent facelift, which this image had already put to rest yesterday.
The National Enquirer did, by the way, go ahead and publish the article that Trump used in an attempt to blackmail Joe and Mika into laying off the criticisms.

 Oooh, that'll teach'em!

As I have said before I am by no means a fan of Morning Joe, and rarely watch anything that they broadcast even on You Tube.

But I have to say that they are certainly doing their part in driving the orange shitgibbon out of what is left of his mind, and that is definitely driving up their likeability in my book.

And they should have no problem keeping it up, since Trump simply cannot stop watching their show and then tweeting about them.
God this whole thing is just so fucking sad.

This is what our politics has turned into, one long drawn out soap opera.

    Trump is an imbecile - low IQ - racist - nasty spirited - insecure - inept - evil - and a low life. Oh - and, white trash!

    There is no way the majority of Americans are going to support this asshole for four years! He'll go down - one way or the other -

    He needs to be impeached and moved out of this assassin leadership role. He does NOT represent me - I didn't vote for him - nor did the majority of Americans.

    God, but I wish President Obama were again our leader (could not hold three terms - Damn!) or that we had President Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton in the White House.

    Fuck Donald Trump!

    Plus, I wish the media would stop referring to him as "Mr." Trump. They refer to President Obama as 'Obama' never showing him the same respect!

    Since all the reporters seem to refer to Trump w/the "Mr.", their higher ups must be telling them to do so. Corporate America again, trying to change the opinions of Americans throughout the country. It's not going to work!!! He is only 'The Donald' as far as I'm concerned.

    It should be noted too that the media has NOT found nasty things to say about President Obama where there is ample factual things in the life of The Donald! President Obama is not being drug through the mud other than for the fact he is our first 'black' POTUS.

    Proud as Hell I voted for President Obama both times!

    1. Anonymous3:29 PM

      2:14: You absolutely spoke my mind! I also refuse to call the orange abomination either 'Mr.' or 'President'. He is #NoMyPresident, and I also am pi**ed beyond anything that the MSM called President Obama simply 'Obama'!
      Joining you in waiting for the demise of the orange abomination, and also being proud as heck that I got to vote TWICE for my President, Mr. Barack Obama!

      Wishing, we could have that classy family back in our White House that is now being trashed by becoming a white whore house in more ways than one.

    It's so easy to prove that the so-called president is a chronic liar that one day soon someone is going to get fed up enough to do it. It'll have to be someone with money- maybe even a high-profile couple with money...

  4. Anonymous2:28 PM

    I could not wipe the smile off my face while on MSNBC it was discussed that lawyers said Trump's tweet about the National Enquirer story made a case of him using a publication for extortion. It was commented that Mueller may chose to investigate that also.

    Trump inevitably reveals his true self even when he thinks he is succeeding as he tells another whopper lie about anyone.

    White House Reeling As Jared Kushner And Trump Tried To Blackmail MSNBC Morning Joe Hosts

    The Trump attack on Mika Brzezinski is turning into a major scandal as it is being reported that it was President Trump and his son in law senior White House adviser Jared Kushner who tried to blackmail Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.

    Mika Brzezinski humiliated Trump and destroyed the image that the paper tiger president likes to project by sharing a story about how the President begged her for the name of her doctor during a meeting at his private club.

    President Donald Trump suggested on Friday that he enabled a supermarket tabloid to publish an attack story on two cable TV hosts who have been critical of him.

    Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough said Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that top White House aides had told them to call Trump and apologize for saying negative things about him, and had threatened that if they did not, the National Enquirer would publish a negative story about the pair.

    ...“The purpose of this commission, or the most recent request, is to figure out who you voted for so they could determine whether or not to push you off the voter rolls,” Kander said. “There is no good explanation for why they would request your political party as part of this information. What’s happening here is that this all started with the biggest lie that a sitting president has ever told and now in order to try to validate that, try and justify that insane action, they are taking insane action after insane action. you mentioned the Mississippi Secretary of State. He came to Missouri in 2012 and campaigned against me. This is not a liberal we’re talking about. This is a person who is saying under no circumstances are you going to get this information about my voters.”

    Kushner told 'Morning Joe' hosts to apologize to Trump or tabloid story would run: report

    President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, told "Morning Joe" hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski they would need to apologize to Trump in order to avoid the National Enquirer publishing a story about their relationship, New York Magazine reported Friday.

    The magazine reports that Kushner texted with Scarborough about the tabloid story before it ran in mid-April. Kushner said the story could be stopped if Scarborough and his co-host, who are engaged to be married, apologized to Trump for their negative coverage of his first months in the White House.

    After Scarborough refused, the National Enquirerran a story on June 5 titled "Joe & Mika: TV Couple’s Sleazy Cheating Scandal."


  16. Anonymous5:11 PM

    Several weeks ago, they said, Enquirer operatives surveilled them and harassed Brzezinski’s close friends and teenage daughters to prepare a scandalous story about their relationship, while three top White House aides repeatedly phoned Scarborough to advise that the 45th president would have the Enquirer story killed if only Scarborough and Brzezinski said they regretted their negative coverage.

    “We got a call that, ‘hey, the National Enquirer is going to run a really negative story against you guys’,” Scarborough recounted, citing a phone call from a Trump White House aide. “And Donald is friends with…the guy that runs the National Enquirer”—a reference to Pecker.

    “And they said, ‘If you call the president up and you apologize for your coverage, then he will pick up the phone and basically spike the story,’” Scarborough continued. “I will just say three people at the very top of the administration called me, and the response to it was, ‘Are you kidding me? I don’t know what they have to run a story. I’m not going to do it.’”

    Don't Let the Trump Show Distract You From What's Really Going On

    There is nothing the GOP heavyweights would like you to do more than watch every embarrassing, catastrophic move Trump makes as they get busy in other parts of the building. Any further gaffes that Trump will perpetrate, which seems to be minute-to-minute, can be smoothed over in back-channel communications. Every leader in the world knows that Trump is a lightweight, easily goaded — in other words, the perfect mark. In Las Vegas terms, a whale. They see guys like him coming from miles off and have everything in place to take it all.

    This is how the GOP is playing the American people as they crassly move a health care disaster bill through the Senate. They’re doing it on your watch but not in your face. As I said, they’re clever. Meanwhile, smarter, more insidious voter-suppression methods are being employed to wreak havoc in 2018.
