Trump Cannot Insult Mika and Joe Without Lying

Maybe It’s More Fun Than Telling the Truth

Almost everyone who writes or talks about national events will be speaking on the Trump temper tantrum on the hosts of Morning Joe.  Now there is nothing wrong with criticizing the two persons who run the program.  Joe in particular is a little bit pompous, okay, a lot pompous.  Like the other pompous MSNBC political reporter, Chris Mathews, Joe interrupts his guests and it looks like he sees the show as an ego trip.  The romantic relationship between the two hosts muddies things.

So Trumpie went off on them, not about their positions but about their persons.  And here is part of their response from the WaPo.

Mr. Trump claims that we asked to join him at Mar-a-Lago three nights in a row. That is false. He also claimed that he refused to see us. That is laughable.
The president-elect invited us both to dinner on Dec. 30. Joe attended because Mika did not want to go. After listening to the president-elect talk about his foreign policy plans, Joe was asked by a disappointed Mr. Trump the next day if Mika could also visit Mar-a-Lago that night. She reluctantly agreed to go. After we arrived, the president-elect pulled us into his family’s living quarters with his wife, Melania, where we had a pleasant conversation. We politely declined his repeated invitations to attend a New Year’s Eve party, and we were back in our car within 15 minutes.

What we would all like to see is the President argue the policy case for his initiatives, particularly health care.  Instead he uses things like this to hide the fact that apparently he has no idea about health care policy.
