The Chumph just picked on the wrong woman to get crass with in DC. Mika Brzezinski is not only a popular TV Host, she has a lineage which goes back to her Father, Zbigniew in the halls of some of the most powerful people in the US Government. Unlike most of the talking heads on cable news – Mika grew up in the halls of power. Her family is highly respected, whether you agree with her politically or not. She is DC “royalty”, and a lot of folks watched her grow up and become a successful reporter.
“You don’t tug on Superman’s cape.”
So the crass, low-life, pernicious tweets by the Chumph – which are a hallmark of a mental maturity of a sociopathic 9 year old, are getting hammered by both sides of the aisle.
This shit is below the office of the President, and any politician who is blocking Putin’s Bitch removal from office is committing treason against America. And hopefully will suffer the righteous consequences of removal from office, conviction, and prison.
Here Charles Blow directly confronts the Chumph and his acolytes lying.
Hours after President Trump posted a pair of ugly tweets attacking cable TV hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, cable news talk shows across the political spectrum featured lengthy, often angry monologues accusing him of demeaning his office as well as women.
Conservatives Charles Krauthammer and Tucker Carlson criticized the tweets on Fox News, with Krauthammer saying “Presidents don’t talk like this.”
On CNN, Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper dedicated their opening remarks to what Lemon called Trump’s “flat out gross and disgusting” tweets.
And on a CNN panel Thursday night, USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers got into a lively debate over the definitions of “feminism” and “misogyny” with Trump surrogate Jeffrey Lord.
But even Lord, who usually defends anything and everything Trump does, said, “I don’t think he should have done it.”
Few were as impassioned as Nicolle Wallace, a former communications director for President George W. Bush. On her MSNBC show Thursday afternoon, Wallace delivered a scorched-earth monologue.
“As someone who once proudly called myself a Republican, the party will be permanently associated with misogyny if leaders don’t stand up and demand a retraction,” Wallace said, challenging women in the Trump administration to publicly denounce their boss’s words and “work behind the scenes to educate him about just how offensive they are.”
Wallace singled out Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, deputy national security adviser Dina Powell and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.
“Most importantly,” Wallace continued, “as the mother of a son, I ask any woman who’s defending these comments how they plan to raise good men if the most powerful man in the world gets away with this.”
Other conservative hosts shared in her exasperation.
At the beginning of an interview with Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel, Fox News anchor Julie Banderas said she would “love to start this segment out about health care, the travel ban” or the controversial off-camera White House press briefings, “but instead I have to start with the president’s tweets.”
McDaniel defended the president’s instinct to fight back against criticisms doled out by Scarborough and Brzezinski, but Banderas pushed back, saying Trump didn’t “need to stoop to that level.”
“I don’t care who you are. You don’t stoop to the level of that,” Banderas said. “I mean that’s like me scolding my 4-year-old for using a bad word and then me repeating it. That’s just not how you run a country or you parent a 4-year-old.”
Krauthammer, the dean of conservative newspaper columnists and frequent Trump critic, said during a panel with Fox News’s Bret Baier that Trump was behaving like authoritarian leaders.
“Presidents don’t talk like this. They never have,” Krauthammer said. “This is what it sounds like when you’re living in a banana republic. This is how Hugo Chávez would talk about his opponents. This is how the worst dictator, Duterte in the Philippines, would talk about opponents.”
