If you thought President Trump might back off from his incendiary tweets about Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, think again.
Watched low rated @Morning_Joe for first time in long time. FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show

It would seem that Trump doesn’t intend to apologize any time soon for bashing Scarborough and taking a personal shot at Brzezinski. Still, it appears that he watched how the Morning Joe co-hosts suspended their vacation in order to return to their show, react to his insults, and question whether the president is all there.
Trump also came tantalizingly close to confirming the allegations that White House staffers threatened the hosts of Morning Joe to change their coverage or face a negative article from the National Enquirer.
UPDATE – 9:35 a.m. EST: Scarborough has reacted.
Yet another lie. I have texts from your top aides and phone records. Also, those records show I haven't spoken with you in many months. https://t.co/TZWiElo6Gs
