Trump melts down on new GOP challenger after watching him on MSNBC’s Morning Joe

Published

on

President Donald Trump insists he doesn’t watch MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” but he frequently tweets out complaints that betray his loyal viewership of the show hosted by two of his former friends.

Mark Sanford, the former South Carolina governor and congressman, appeared Monday to tell hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski about his Republican primary campaign against the president — and Trump ranted about the segment minutes later on Twitter.

“When the former Governor of the Great State of South Carolina, @MarkSanford, was reported missing, only to then say he was away hiking on the Appalachian Trail, then was found in Argentina with his Flaming Dancer friend, it sounded like his political career was over,” Trump tweeted.

“It was, but then he ran for Congress and won, only to lose his re-elect after I Tweeted my endorsement, on Election Day, for his opponent,” the president continued. “But now take heart, he is back, and running for President of the United States. The Three Stooges, all badly failed candidates, will give it a go!”

Sanford joins former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld and former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh as GOP primary challengers to the president.

Published

on

Republicans are concerned about President Donald Trump's rabid impulses and are urging self-discipline and constraint, two words that aren't typically associated with the president.

In a Politico report, Republican officials explained that they agree with the attorney general that Trump should calm down and let him handle things.

“The president does have a tendency to lash out, and I think in this case he would be well advised to try to temper that,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX). “Because I think Bill Barr is his best path on seeing that justice is done in terms of all of these various investigations, including the counterintelligence investigation and the lead-up to the Mueller report.”

Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) lost when she ran in 2018, but was given a participation prize by the Republican governor who had to appoint someone to cover Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) seat until it came up for reelection in 2020. Recent polling shows that McSally is in serious trouble.
