In response to the media outrage at Trump for his unnecessary and misogynistic Twitter attack on Mika Brzezinski, Kelllyanne Conway had this to say:
She hopes “good” comes out of the situation, and that people have respect for the office of the President and “have a full conversation about policy.” “Let people disagree on policy and stop the personal invective, it’s completely toxic and it’s completely counterproductive to connecting America with policy prescription that they need.”
While Kellyanne is pleading for respect for the office of the President, Trump, once again displays his lack of respect for the office. Trump engaged in another Twitter tirade targeting Joe and Mika. Trump was making reference to a National Enquirer article.
They also addressed the issue of an alleged National Enquirer story-in-the-works, writing, “This year, top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the president to have the story spiked. We ignored their desperate pleas.”
It appears the article was about Brzezinski and Scarborough’s romantic relationship. The pair recently went public with their engagement in a Vanity Fair article published in May, and the National Enquirer published an article in early June about their relationship.
Scarborough quickly fought back on Twitter Friday morning, responding to Trump, “Yet another lie. I have texts from your top aides and phone records. Also, those records show I haven’t spoken with you in many months.”
It’s Donald Trump who disrespects the Office of the President. By attacking media celebrities in this way, it is clear that he is unhinged. By focusing on this type of issue,it is obvious that our President isn’t focused on the hundreds of issues that only a President can fix. It is also frightening that if any foreign power wants to undermine the President, all they have to do is post a comment on Twitter. The real challenge won’t be to think of a way to get under Trump’s skin. The challenge will be to limit their comments to 140 characters.
