Mika Brzezinski responds to President Trump’s tweets

The morning after being viciously attacked by President Trump on Twitter, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski said she wasn’t exactly reeling as a result of the president’s deeply personal and vulgar social media assault.

But, she said Friday on “Morning Joe,” she is concerned about what Trump’s tweets reveal.

“I’m fine,” Brzezinski said. “My family brought me up really tough. This is absolutely nothing for me personally. But I’m very concerned about what this once again reveals about the president of the United States.”

She added: “It does worry me about the country.”

Said her co-host, Joe Scarborough: “We’re okay. The country is not.”

Brzezinski and Scarborough were scheduled to start a vacation Thursday afternoon but delayed it to address the president’s attack.

They also authored an op-ed for The Washington Post about Trump’s tweets, writing: “President Trump launched personal attacks against us Thursday, but our concerns about his unmoored behavior go far beyond the personal. America’s leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president. We have our doubts, but we are both certain that the man is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show, ‘Morning Joe.’”
