What the National Enquirer published about Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski

"I think it's been fascinating and frightening and really sad for our country", Brzezinski said on today's edition of the MSNBC CMCSA, +0.54% morning show.

Since Thursday there have been back-and-forth tweets between Trump and the hosts of MSNBC's morning television show "Morning Joe".

"We ignored their desperate pleas", the two claimed.

The row escalated when the President denied claims White House staff warned Brzezinski and Scarborough earlier this year that the National Enquirer tabloid was planning a negative story about them. "We will continue to WIN!" he wrote. House speaker Ryan said about the facelift tweet, "Obviously I don't see that as an appropriate comment", while Sen.

Trump responded Friday, calling the show "FAKE NEWS".

"NBC execs knew in real time about the calls and who made them to me", Scarborough told RedState.

In a Washington Post op-ed piece co-signed by Morning Joe anchors Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, the talk show hosts acknowledged making critical statements about Trump's presidency, but said that "our concerns about his unmoored behaviour go far beyond the personal". Scarborough also disclosed White House aides had called to threaten him, demanding he stop his criticism of Trump or else the National Enquirer would publish an unflattering story.
