Donald Trump Threatens to Expose "Real Story" About Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski
The GOP presidential nominee threatened to expose an alleged romantic link between the MSNBC anchors.
Donald Trump on Monday went back on the attack after last week telling supporters he may have gone too far with some of his comments in general while out on the campaign trail.
The GOP presidential nominee, through Twitter, on which he has more than 11 million followers, threatened to expose an alleged romantic link between MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, hosts of Morning Joe.
"Tried watching low-rated @Morning_Joe this morning, unwatchable! @morningmika [Brzezinski] is off the wall, a neurotic and not very bright mess!" the billionaire businessman said in the initial tweet.
"Some day, when things calm down, I'll tell the real story of @JoeNBC [Scarborough] and his very insecure long-time girlfriend, @morningmika [Brzezinski]. Two clowns!" he added.
It is unclear exactly what set Trump off on Monday.
Scarborough was quick to respond, through Twitter, to Trump's attacks, saying first, "Neurotic and not very bright? Look in the mirror." He followed with, "Thanks for watching. Morning Joe is enjoying it's best ratings ever thanks to obsessed fans like you. GLAD." The last tweet included a smiley face emoji.
The attack from Trump — which he has done on a regular basis toward media since announcing his White House run last June — comes just days after telling a crowd in North Carolina he had some regrets about comments made in the past.
"Sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don't choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that," said Trump. "And believe it or not, I regret it. And I do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues."
