When Donald Trump decided to send out a controversial tweet about the hosts of "Morning Joe" on Thursday morning, the contents of the message quickly dominated cable news. Following a public response by hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, it was only a matter of time before the president fired back.

Trump on "Morning Joe"

There once was a time when Donald Trump got along with Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough. During the early days of the 2016 presidential election, the majority of the mainstream media pushed back at the former host of "The Apprentice," mostly due to his questionable rhetoric and policy proposals.

While this was the case, Trump would be a guest on "Morning Joe" on more than one occasion, which continued throughout the election. However, as time moved forward, both Brzezinski and Scarborough stepped back from Trump, eventually leading to the duo becoming one of the most vocal critics of the commander in chief. As the bad blood between both sides increased, Trump would take time to bash the show on social media, leading to his most recent remarks where he labeled Scarborough a "psycho," while claiming Brzezinski had a facelift. The two responded to Trump's tweet during Friday morning's show, where they accused the president of attempting to blackmail them with a piece in the National Enquirer.

In response, Trump decided to voice his thoughts during a June 30 tweet.

As expected, Donald Trump responded to the allegations made by "Morning Joe" with yet another tweet.

"Watched low rated @Morning_Joe for first time in long time. FAKE NEWS," Trump tweeted out. Not stopping there, Trump then attempted to clarify the issue regarding blackmail and the National Enquirer. "He called me to stop a National Enquirer article," Trump wrote, before adding, "I said no! Bad show." Trump's denial contradicts with what the hosts claim, and it's unknown if each side will prove the other wrong in the future.

While it remains more than obvious that Donald Trump and the hosts of "Morning Joe" are not on the same page, the president has more important issues to worry about rather than bicker with Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough on the internet. Currently, Trump's proposed health care bill is facing harsh opposition in the Senate, as the Russian scandal continues to grow on a daily basis. Despite the backlash, it appears as if the president is not going to change his tune anytime soon.
