Discussing the Super Bowl Coca-Cola “America the Beautiful” commercial, Joe Scarborough of Morning Joe said:
“When I see ads like that, it makes me just smile and think, we’re the United States of America and we do what no other country has been able to do in the history of mankind and the rest of the world, you can… bite me.”
(The bite me was helpfully offered by another pundit on his show but Scarborough agreed immediately.)
Trump’s Thursday morning tweets, in which he called the “Morning Joe” host “crazy” and claimed she was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” when she visited his Florida resort early this year, earned widespread condemnation throughout the day, including from several Republicans on Capitol Hill.
But Sanders argued that the president had every right to “hit back” at “the liberal media” and “Hollywood elites” when they criticize him — and deflected questions about whether the insults were beneath the presidency.
“I don’t think you can expect someone to be personally attacked day after day, minute by minute, and sit back,” Sanders said, arguing that the criticism the president and his aides endure is often personal in nature. “When the president gets hit, he’s going to hit back harder.”
Mika sure is a fearsome foe for the most powerful man in the world. I recall the Gerald Ford-Charo smackdown of the mid-70s that divided a nation.
