At­tacks be­tween MSNBC “Morn­ing Joe” hosts and Pres­i­dent Trump

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Re: Stephanie Sit­tner, Re: Mike Eller, Su­san Per­mut,

“Trump gets it from all sides for trash-talk­ing MSNBC hosts,” June 30 news story.

In de­fense of Don­ald Trump’s per­sonal at­tack on MSNBC host Mika Brzezin­ski, White House spokes­woman Sarah Huck­abee San­ders says he “was push­ing back against peo­ple who have at­tacked him day af­ter day af­ter day. Where is the out­rage on that?”

Barack Obama was also re­lent­lessly at­tacked while he was pres­i­dent (of­ten and un­fairly by Trump him­self ), and I cer­tainly don’t re­call him re­spond­ing with the kind of dis­re­spect­ful per­sonal in­sults the pres­i­dent has tweeted.

Trump’s de­meanor con­tin­ues to be re­pug­nant and un­pres­i­den­tial in the ex­treme. That’s where the out­rage is, Ms. San­ders.

Al­though I wish Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump would scale back his tweets, if any­body had it com­ing it was the brain­dead duo on “Morn­ing Joe.” Ap­par­ently the left thinks their right to per­son­ally in­sult the pres­i­dent has no bounds, but if he strikes back it is “so be­neath the dig­nity of the of­fice.”

If Barack Obama had been in­sulted like Trump has been, the party do­ing the in­sult­ing would have been la­beled a racist and worse. The dif­fer­ence is that the me­dia (in­clud­ing The Den­ver Post) would have scorned the party do­ing the in­sult­ing. With Trump, they scorn the pres­i­dent.

“‘Morn­ing Joe’ hosts: Don­ald Trump is not well,” July 1 Mika Brzezin­ski and Joe Scar­bor­ough col­umn.

Thanks so much for pub­lish­ing the col­umn from “Morn­ing Joe” hosts Mika Brzezin­ski and Joe Scar­bor­ough, who wrote: “Amer­ica’s lead­ers and al­lies are ask­ing them­selves yet again whether this man is fit to be pres­i­dent.” I think many of us agree that he is not. What I and, I hope, many of the Amer­i­can peo­ple are ask­ing our­selves is why Repub­li­cans are fall­ing in line be­hind him. I be­lieve it’s be­cause they are more in­ter­ested in win­ning than they are in serv­ing the Amer­i­can peo­ple, and I think it’s shame­ful.
