Trump / Mika Brzezinski

Well, the republican President Donald Trump is at it again, showing all of us his true colors, as he has in the past with women who have dared to challenge him in some way.

This latest incident involves some over the top tweets by the president which drips with sexism, in reaction to the co-host Mika Brzezinski of the MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” daily show who dared to question the president’s credibility.

The tweets are so crude that even some republican lawmakers are refusing to defend the president on his bullying tactics. And besides, doesn’t he have a country to lead?

On June 29, 2017, Callum Borchers of the Washington Post penned the following article, “Trump’s latest attack on Mika Brzezinski is dripping with sexism.”

Excerpts: 

The hosts of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC criticized President Trump’s Twitter habit Thursday — “that’s your president of the United States lying to you,” Mika Brzezinski said of one tweet — and then, as if succumbing to involuntary spasms, Trump’s thumbs tapped out whatever nasty, sexist thought popped into his head.

“For the record, “Morning Joe” enjoyed its highest ratings ever in the second quarter of this year and has increased viewership in nine consecutive quarters.”

“And the notion that Brzezinski and Scarborough were desperate to hang out with Trump on New Year’s Eve but were rebuffed seems dubious, at best. For one thing, the New York Times spotted the co-hosts at Trump’s New Year’s Eve party at Mar-a-Lago. For another, Scarborough followed the report of their appearance by angrily protesting any suggestion that he and Brzezinski were trying to cozy up to the president-elect.”

“Scarborough said at the time that he and Brzezinski went to Mar-a-Lago to pitch an interview and left before the festivities were in full swing. The interview never happened, so we can assume Trump “said no” to the request. But his tweets Thursday suggested that he shot down an attempt to socialize, which does not comport with known history.”

The posts followed a consistent pattern: When Trump hits Brzezinski and Scarborough on Twitter, he hits Brzezinski harder, more personally and in a way that seems designed to portray her as insecure (“facelift”) and unintelligent (“low IQ”) — as a side piece who would not be on TV if not for her romantic relationship with Scarborough, to whom she was recently engaged.”

“In response to Thursday’s tweets, MSNBC said: “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.”

Brzezinski tweeted a response of her own.

  1. Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:
    Is anyone surprised? Is this one going to ‘pass’ too? Colors were never truer … spiteful, childish, immature, un-excusable … quite unpresidential! Then again … #NotMyPresident … 🐷

  2. Dear Mz. Gronda,
    Just when it looks like tRump can go no lower, he surprises us and manages to dig the hole deeper! Do you suppose he realizes that if the MSM takes the gloves off and actually attacks that he might not be in a good position to with stand the pressure? What if suddenly they decide to take on the “illegal alien” status of his wife? Or any of the prior scandals involving his adult children? It makes one think about the saying “people in glass houses should not throw rocks”!

    • Dear Crustyolemothman,

      I would just like to see a few republican male lawmakers truly sit on this guy with a few blessed words. They keep enabling his boorish behaviors because they are scared of the bully.

      Hugs, Gronda

  3. Dear Mz. Gronda,
    Here is a few short words from Dan Rather, that while not addressing this subject, are well worth the minute or so spent reading!

    • Dear Crustyolemothman,

      Thanks a million for this reference. Dan Rather said it perfectly. I’ve already scheduled a blog on this for tomorrow morning.

      Hugs, Gronda

    • Dear Kim,

      We have had a hard time surviving these few months. I am exhausted and weary but I am not giving up. Remember the saying, fall that is needed for evil to succeed, is for good people to do nothing.

      I am willing to bet that Melania has been a victim of his bullying. She picked the wrong platform considering that she is married to the BULLY-IN-CHIEF.

      Hugs, Gronda

      • Exhausted and dreary are the perfect words Gronda. I was already obsessing about the healthcare bill and the Muslim ban, and then to wake up to more Twitter crap! Because of my continuing migraines, I haven’t been posting as much, so when I do I’ve been mostly sticking to book reviews, but this was too much and I had to do a rant/post. And honestly, after her comment through her spokeswoman, she’s nothing but an enabler.😒

  4. ‘He punches’?????????????????
    ‘He’ is supposed to be the President of the USA. The office comes with a level of dignity and gravitas.
    I won’t stain your hard blog with my basic descriptive words of the oaf current occupying the Whitehouse, suffice it to say as I keep on saying The USA does not have a president, just a ‘person’ who occupies The Whitehouse.
    Fool!!
    Take care of yourself Gronda. Take some time out from the good work. Rest and refit.
    All the best
    Roger

    • Dear Roger,

      The WH is inhabited by a vain, venal, thin skinned man who has mental health challenges.And, yes, I need to plan a trip away from all of this.

      Hugs, Gronda

      • What will be interesting is when he tries to challenge face-to-face the Military or Intelligence Service Apparatus at ‘Defcon Level 1’.
        They will accept professional long service politicians (with fur flying a bit no doubt) but not a bunch of amateurs from the Greed Sector.

  5. Gronda, two comments. Paul Ryan condemned this tweeting. This is getting to be a habit – I wonder if Ryan thinks the President is still learning the job. The other is I am embarassed for Sarah Huckabee when she had to defend the President’s remarks saying this is what people voted for in a President. Someone who will attack his critics. I am not so certain that people want their President to be a jerk. Keith
