"Beneath the dignity of your office" - Sen. Ben Sasse (R - Neb.)
In a week that has included attacks on CNN following a retracted story
and on the Washington Post, Trump took to Twitter on Thursday morning
with negative comments about MSNBC's "Morning Joe" talk show hosts, Joe
Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
Trump didn't specify to which "Morning Joe" comments he was referring,
but his tweets came a day after a segment on the show that critiqued a
fake Time Magazine cover hanging on the wall at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
Trump's tweets drew criticism on Twitter, including from Sen. Lindsey
Graham (R-S.C.) and Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.).
MSNBC issued a statement following the tweets:
"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 said in a statement to The Times on Thursday.
Trump has no dignity at all. He's a swine.
