President Donald Trump hurled another attack at his former friends on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” and they again begged him to stop watching and get to work.

The president tweeted out an inaccurate insult about the show’s ratings and questioned the hosts’ mental health, and they responded moments later.

The show remains the second-most watched cable news program in the morning, behind Trump’s beloved “Fox & Friends,” and co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski asked why the president cared.

“A live shot of the White House,” Scarborough said, after a commercial break. “Now inside that White House is a guy, he just can’t quit us. I’ve asked him to. I said, ‘Donald, for the sake of America, for the sake of America, for the sake of your mental health please stop watching ‘Morning Joe.’ He’s watching again this morning.”

Scarborough insisted he didn’t care about the show’s ratings, and thanked his crew for their work that’s been upended by the pandemic.

“The ‘Morning Joe’ team works so hard, and this pandemic it’s been so hard for our entire team to continue putting together, think about this, a three-hour show every morning,” he said. “They’re working through the night, scattered all over the tri-state area, and they’re just doing a hell of a job, and because of that, because of their hard work, we’ve — our ratings, Donald, have been better than ever this year and we want to thank you. We really want to thank you for drawing attention to the ratings, and, of course, we know you’re lying about them, but that’s okay. That’s what you do. But I will ask you again, for — how many times have I asked him of him, Mika? Please, please stop watching our show.”

CNN host Poppy Harlow lost patience with a White House spokesperson on Monday afternoon after he deflected questions about the New York Times reporting on Donald Trump's taxes by trying to smear the paper and the reporters behind the bombshell report.

After White House Deputy Press Secretary Brian Morgenstern tried to smirk his way through an attack on the report and the journalists who compiled it, Harlow warned him the interview would end immediately if he didn't stick the subject and answer her questions.

"In 2017, Brian, in 2017, according to all of these documents, it appears the president paid more in taxes to Panama, India, and the Philippines than he did to Uncle Sam. How is that America first?" the CNN host pressed.

During a segment on C-SPAN Monday morning, the Lincoln Project's Rick Wilson took questions from viewers, some of whom were Trump supporters who are less than appreciative of his work.

At one point during the segment, Wilson took a call from a woman named Sandy, who said she's "seen this guy before hanging out with the Democrats, making fun of Donald Trump."

"I don't believe he's a Republican at all, ever," Sandy continued. "He's another hater. He spouts the Democrats' points -- and he says he's gonna come knock on [the doors of] Republicans who voted for Trump? Well, you sound more like Antifa to me."

President Donald Trump has refused to commit to accepting the election results if his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, is victorious on Tuesday, November 3 — and Trump has an army of Republican attorneys ready to fight for him in swing states next month. Journalist Anita Kumar, in an article published in Politico on September 27, stresses that the team of lawyers that Trump's campaign is employing for this election is enormous.
