24 hours after President Trump fired off two tweets which elicited almost universal indignation from members of his own party and women around the country, the subject of that attack, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, responded on Friday morning, commenting that Trump’s childish behavior doesn’t bode well for the United States:
“I am very concerned, once again, about what this reveals about the president of the United States — it’s strange. It’s alarming that this president is so easily played. What is that saying to our allies? What is that saying to our enemies?”
Co-host Joe Scarborough noted that Trump’s sexism and hatred towards women is alarming:
“We’re okay, but the country’s not. Unfortunately, we learned what we’ve always known — he, for some reason, takes things so much more personally with women.
“For some reason, he always goes after Mika — it’s always personal with Mika. He attacks women because he fears women.”
Later in the discussion, Scarborough touched on some very real–and very troubling–examples of just how unstable the president truly is. He revealed that a congressman told him Trump had interrupted a meeting to start ranting about the MSNBC morning show and its hosts:
“‘He was vicious when he turned from you to Mika. ‘His face was red, he started talking about blood coming out of her ears, out of her eyes,’ and this congressman said, ‘I’ve been in politics for decades, and never seen anything like this.’ He said, ‘I don’t know why I’m calling you, but I was just scared, — I was scared for you guys, and I wanted you to know.’
“And for some reason, we’ve seen this time and time again with Mika. I will insult him over the Muslim ban or say he’s a racist. I’ll say he’s a racist what what he said about David Duke. All these things through the year, and for some reason, he always goes after Mika, and it’s always personal with Mika.”
Over half of the American population is female. And this man is president? That needs to change. Trump either needs to resign or be impeached.
