Trump brands MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough ‘nuts’ and says his ‘mind is shot’ – but host fires back ‘get to work’ – The Sun

DONALD Trump went on a Tuesday morning rant about MSNBC's Morning Joe, labeling host Joe Scarborough ‘nuts’ and says his ‘mind is shot’.

The host quickly fired back at the President, however, telling him to "get back to work."

"Watched the first 5 minutes of poorly rated Morning Psycho on MSDNC just to see if he is as 'nuts' as people are saying," Trump tweeted.

"He’s worse. Such hatred and contempt!

"I used to do his show all the time before the 2016 election, then cut him off. Wasn’t worth the effort, his mind is shot!" Trump added.

He did not allude to anything specific that sparked the tweet, but it came amid a wave of morning updates surrounding the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S.

Scarborough shot back at Trump, as he told the President to "get back to work."

"Donald, thanks for being our most loyal viewer. Now please get to work," the MSNBC host tweeted.

"Over 40,000 Americans have died from the pandemic.

"America has the most gifted scientists, doctors, and technology leaders. Please use them and take charge of testing so we can get America working again! #USA" he added.

As of Tuesday morning, more than 787,000 cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in the U.S., with over 42,000 deaths.

Trump continued his Twitter rant, with comments about "Lamestream Media" and "Fake News."

"It is amazing that I became President of the United States with such a totally corrupt and dishonest Lamestream Media going after me all day, and all night," Trump tweeted.

"Either I’m really good, far better than the Fake News wants to admit, or they don’t have nearly the power as once thought!"

He added in another tweet: "I’ve had great 'ratings' my whole life, there’s nothing unusual about that for me. The White House News Conference ratings are 'through the roof' (Monday Night Football, Bachelor Finale , @nytimes) but I don’t care about that. I care about going around the Fake News to the PEOPLE!
