In what can only be described as a new low, Donald Trump tweeted some of his most outrageous comments yet against Morning Joe news hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, prompting a backlash from everyone in Washington and the media. The cable news hosts responded by questioning Trump’s mental capacity, and went one further by revealing an alleged attempt by Trump and his top aides to force an apology from Joe for their consistent criticism of Trump otherwise he would not stop a negative story being run in the Enquirer about the hosts. Even with all this occurring, Republicans on the hill are still not calling Trump to account, only offering rhetoric instead of action. Steve and Ben continue to discuss the ongoing issues surrounding Trump and his rhetoric, how the office of the Presidency is being degraded by his actions, and how Trump may be his own worst enemy.
