MSNBC viewers on Monday blasted host Andrea Mitchell after she repeatedly referred to Donald Trump as "the president."
During a segment about the future of the Republican Party, Mitchell used the phrase "the president" while introducing a video of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) praising Trump.
"Let's just play what Lindsey Graham had to say because that was the full embrace yesterday of the president," she said.
Following the clip, Mitchell continued: "The president is out on the golf course today. We've already seen him out on the golf course down there in Palm Beach."
Viewers reacted on Twitter by calling on Mitchell to correct herself.
"Heard just now on @MSNBC: the President is on the golf course," one viewer wrote. "NO. He's in the Oval Office doing his job. PLEASE stop referring to Trump as President. We worked really hard to make sure he wasn't anymore."

How do we get the media to stop calling trump “president Trump" already almost every media outlet has called him President Trump. there is only ONE PRESIDENT. MSNBC IS HAVING A REALLY BIG PROBLEM RECOGNIZING THIS. if they can't remember just call him Donald trump or just trump

.@MSNBC why does @mitchellreports think DJT is still POTUS? Has nobody told her that @JoeBiden won the election?

It may just be me, but I wish Trump would now be referred to as Former. I know President is a title they retain, but we had 4 ugly years of Pres. Trump- I hate hearing commentators call him Pres. Trump. While referring to Pres. Biden as Joe Biden. @MSNBC

Helpful hint for @MSNBC journalists and hosts:
“The President" is Joe Biden. When you talk about the person in that space before him, you need to say “the FORMER president."
