The National Enquirer denied it had coordinated with the Trump White House to publish a story about Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mike Brzezinski's alleged romantic relationship. "We ignored their desperate pleas", Ms Brzezinski and Mr Scarborough wrote in the Post.

The tweets "represent what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America", said Republican senator Lindsey Graham, while another Republican senator, Ben Sasse, called Mr Trump's remarks, "beneath the dignity of your office".

The President definitely isn't a fan of Brzezinski and Scarborough, but his tweets have shown that his dislike isn't reserved to their political opinions. He claimed that he hadn't spoken to Trump in months, so Trump's claim that he called and begged him to stop the National Enquirer story was false. You can't even tell. "At no time did we threaten either [Scarborough or Brzezinski] or their children in connection with our reporting on the story".

Mr Trump says the hosts called him in an attempt to stop the story.

Mr Trump tweeted during Friday morning's broadcast, "Watched low rated @Morning_Joe for first time in long time".

Ms Brzezinski in recent weeks has wondered whether Mr Trump was mentally ill and said the country under his presidency "does feel like a developing dictatorship".

Trump went on to attack another of his favorite cable news targets: CNN. In the piece they say he has an "obsession with women's blood".

North Dakota Republican Congressman Kevin Cramer is defending President Trump's crude twitter attack on the brains and appearance of a TV personality.

Brzezinski also said that they received a call about the Enquirer story - actually she said "three people at the very top of the administration" were calling her to urge her and Scarborough to apologize to the president. The story cited the following tweet from Trump from last August.

It also has a ring of plausibility because of Trump's longtime friendship with David Pecker, chief executive officer of the Enquirer's parent company whose unabashed loyalty to Trump was reflected in its coverage of the 2016 campaign. Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came...to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me.
