'Morning Joe' hosts Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough respond: 'Donald Trump is not well'

The hosts of Morning Joe responded to Thursday's Twitter attacks from President Trump, saying that the president is "not mentally equipped" to continue watching their show.

The title of the op-ed published in the Washington Post may say it all: "Donald Trump is not well."

Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough addressed what they called the president's "unhealthy obsession" with their show. According to the pair, the president's closest advisers said he continues to watch the show on MSNBC, though he claims the opposite.

"That is unfortunate," they wrote. "We believe it would be better for America and the rest of the world if he would keep his 60-inch-plus flat-screen TV tuned to Fox and Friends."

The response from Brzezinski and Scarborough came nearly a day after Trump attacked them both, resulting in backlash from many in the political world including members of Trump's own party.

"I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came ...to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!" he wrote on Twitter.

They called out the president for his insult about Brzezinski, saying that she has never had a facelift.

"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," they wrote. "And though it is no one's business, the president's petulant personal attack against yet another woman's looks compels us to report that Mika has never had a face-lift."

The cohosts, who were scheduled to be on vacation, will appear at 7 a.m. Friday on their show to address the tweets.
