In recent weeks, the feud between the Donald Trump administration and the mainstream media has gone to the next level. While the president is usually the one doing the talking, his top advisors are also quick to engage in a war of words with the press.

MSNBC vs White House

Over the course of the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump made it clear that he wasn't a fan of most journalists and reporters. Only a select few across cable news seemed to be in the good graces of the former host of "The Apprentice," which included the hosts of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.

In recent months, the MSNBC duo went from being friendly to the president, to one of his biggest critics. In response, Trump has lashed out at the show, poking fun at their low ratings, as the relationship between both side appears beyond repair. During dueling statement to Bloomberg, Scarborough and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon had a few words for each other, as reported by Mediaite on February 28.

In a special profile on Stephen Miller, an advisor to Donald Trump who came under fire for his controversial TV appearances earlier this month, Steve Bannon was critical of the news media, with special attention paid to Joe Scarborough.

"I'm very sorry that the mainstream media does not like President Trump’s agenda, Bannon noted, while adding that the press will "have to embrace the fact that they, as the opposition party, who tried to destroy Donald Trump as a candidate, lost."

Steve Bannon didn't stop there, calling out the MSNBC host by name in his defense of Stephen Miller.

"When Joe Scarborough and the mainstream media attack Stephen Miller, it's just like any opposition party," Bannon said, before accusing the press of attempting to "take out" the "best young people" in the White House.

Joe fires back

In response to Steve Bannon, Joe Scarborough released a rebuttal to Bloomberg and didn't hold back his thoughts.

Referring to Bannon and Stephen Miller as "hacks," Scarborough said they both "humiliate themselves by being so ignorant of American history" before mocking them for trying to speak in "big-boy voices" in a failed defense of Donald Trump and the current administration. As Scarborough and other mainstream media names continue to fight back against the White House, it doesn't appear like common ground will be found at any point in the near future.
