Trump’s Twitter tirade against journalist Mika Brzezinski draws strong criticism from Republicans

Donald Trump launched a crude Twitter attack on the brains, looks and temperament of a female TV personality on Thursday, drawing strong criticism including from senior Republicans.

Mr Trump’s tweets, aimed at co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe Mika Brzezinski revived concerns about his views of women in a climate where civility is already in short supply and he is struggling for any support he can get for his proposals on health care, immigration and other controversial issues.

The Republican President called Brzezinski — a journalist and daughter of former White House national security advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski — “low IQ Crazy Mika” and said she was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” when she visited one of his properties around New Year’s Eve.

He referred to Brzezinski’s co-host, former Republican US congressman Joe Scarborough, as “Psycho Joe”.
