"It is unbelievably alarming that this president is so easily played, he is easily played by a cable news host", she said.

The National Enquirer has denied claims by "Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski that the White House attempted to blackmail the morning show duo with a possible hit piece that involved going after Brzezinski's children. "We ignored their desperate pleas". "We will continue to WIN!" he posted, before ending the day at a rally in Washington that included a similar anti-media barrage. But he called Scarborough "crazy" and Brzezinski "dumb as a rock".

It is with these two journalists, as a couple on screen and in life, that the President Trump was delivered Thursday and Friday are two days altercation by tweets and editorials interposed. You can't even tell.

In the wake of recent criticism from those on both sides of the aisle regarding his Twitter comments about Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, Trump claimed in a tweet on Saturday that his use of social media is "not presidential - it's modern day presidential".

White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters that he is "not aware" of White House officials pressing Scarborough to call up Trump and act nice.

The shocking tweet is presumed to be a response to a segment the show did that morning which took aim at a fake Time magazine cover featuring Trump that hangs at several of Trump's golf clubs and properties, according to The Washington Post.

Trump also targeted CNN, a frequent punching bag for the president.

Trump also escalated his war with media at an event to honor U.S. military veterans ahead of July 4, the American Independence Day. "I said no! Bad show". "Just pick up the phone and call him", Scarborough said.

Scarborough responded quickly to Trump's tweet with one of his own, writing, "Yet another lie". A spokesperson later claimed that the first lady had been "unaware" that the tweet had been added to her favorites.

Thune says he thinks Trump's advisers may be giving him a lot of bad advice.

The controversy comes the same week as a New Yorker profile by Jeffrey Toobin, which explores the close relationship between AMI chairman and chief executive officer David Pecker and the president.

Trump on Thursday tweeted, calling the pair "low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe".
