UPDATE: Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough Respond to Trump's Twitter Attack 'We're Ok, The Country's Not'

This morning, hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough delayed their planned vacation to appear on their show, MORNING JOE and respond to President Trump's personal attack on them. Said Brzezinski, "I'm fine. My family brought me up really tough. This is absolutely nothing, for me personally. But I am very concerned as to what this once again reveals about the president of the United States."

Added Scarborough, "We're ok, the country's not. Yesterday was just another example of how deeply personal he is. He attacks women because he fears women."

Brzezinski said of Trump's recent Twitter rant, "He appears to have a fragile, childlike, impetuous ego that we've seen over and again, especially with women," she said. "It's like he can't take it."

Republicans and democrats alike were shocked by a series of morning tweets by Donald Trump which personally attacked MORNING JOE co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough. Check out Trump's tweets below!

In an interview with Fox News host Bill Hemmer, White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to criticism of Trump's twitter rant, commenting, "I don't think that the President has ever been someone who gets attacked and doesn't push back. There have been an outrageous number of personal attacks, not just to him, but to frankly everyone around him. People on that show have personally attacked me many times. This is a President who fights fire with fire, and certainly will not be allowed to be bullied by liberal media, and the liberal elites within the media, or Hollywood, or anywhere else."
