Not nice, but scrappy - don't attack Trump if you can't take what he dishes out - he has made his position clear. The White House defended President Trump’s rant Thursday on Twitter against the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” saying the president was “fighting fire with fire.” White House principal deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said show co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have “attacked mercilessly” the president, including accusing him of having a mental disorder. “I think he’s been very clear that when he gets attacked, he is going to hit back,” she told reporters at the White House. “I think the American people elected somebody who’s tough, who’s smart and who’s a fighter — and that’s Donald Trump.”
The president was accused by Democrats and
Republicans of going too far and lowering the dignity of the office after
he slammed Mr. Scarborough and Ms. Brzezinski in a tweet. He singled out
Ms. Brzezinski for allegedly having a facelift.
