MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski hit back at President Donald Trump this morning, calling him a liar and questioning his mental health, after their former friend claimed the duo relentlessly pursued him at Palm Beach property while Mika was recovering from a facelift.
'We are both certain that the man is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show, “Morning Joe," they said in a Washington Post op-ed on Friday morning.
According to their account in the Post, Trump invited them to Mar-a-Lago for dinner. When Brzezinski didn't show, he asked them back the next night on, New Year's Eve.
They went - but did not attend the party he was having that night, they maintained.
'Mr. Trump also claims that Mika was “bleeding badly from a face-lift.” That is also a lie,' the op-ed says. 'Putting aside Mr. Trump’s never-ending obsession with women’s blood, Mika and her face were perfectly intact, as pictures from that night reveal.'
While Brzezinski 'never had a face-lift' they admit that she did 'have a little skin under her chin tweaked, but this was hardly a state secret.'
Having postponed a Fourth of July holiday by a day, the pair, who revealed their engagement last month, stopped by their show to rebut Trump in person on Friday morning.
Brzezinski says they met privately with Trump and his wife in a bedroom and were led out through the party. 'Talk about facelifts - woah, Palm Beach!' she said.
The 50-year-old television host proudly talked about her chin tuck and declared: 'It looks awesome.'
They also claimed on the show, and in the Post, that senior Trump officials begged them to call the president and apologize for their coverage or have a nasty piece on them run in a tabloid that's owned and operated by the president's friend.
Trump responded with outrage on Twitter more than an hour after they made the on-air claim.
'Watched low rated @Morning Joe for first time in long time. FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show.'
