Over the last two days, the headlines have been dominated by #Donald Trump and the tweets he sent out attacking the hosts of MSNBC's "Morning Joe." After co-host #Mika Brzezinski opened up with her thoughts about #Melania Trump, the first lady decided to fire back.

Mika on Melania

While most of the on-air talent at MSNBC was against Donald Trump from the day he announced his candidacy for president back in June 2015, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough were more welcoming. As the months rolled on during the 2016 presidential election, Trump was invited on as a guest on "Morning Joe" on more than one occasion, as he appeared friendly with the two hosts.

However, that relationship eventually turned sour, leading to Brzezinski and Scarborough becoming two of the most vocal critics of the president. On Thursday, the rift between both sides reached an all-time low when Trump sent out a pair of tweets attacking the duo. The former host of "The Apprentice" referred to Scarborough as a "psycho," while accusing Brzezinski, who he labeled "low I.Q.," of having a facelift. As expected, the president received harsh backlash over the next 24 hours, with the hosts answering back themselves during Friday's edition of their show. As reported by Mediate on June 30, Brzezinski's recent comments were not welcomed by the first lady.

While speaking to InStyle magazine this week, Mika Brzezinski elaborated on her thoughts on Donald Trump's recent tweets, and then gave her opinion on how Melania Trump might be handling it.

"I know Melania. I haven’t talked to her in months, but if my gut is right, I don’t think she’s going to put up with it much longer," Brzezinski said. "Melania’s got the worst job in the country and I don’t think she wants do it a lot longer," she added.

Melania answers

In response to Mika Brzezinski's remarks, Melania Trump responded in a brief statement first obtained by the Daily Mail. "It is sad when people try to further their own agenda by commenting on me and my family, especially when they don’t know me," Melania said of the "Morning Joe" co-host. Though Melania was supposed to highlight an end to cyber bullying on the internet, a statement was also released on Thursday which supported her husband's actions.
