Celebrities are reacting to Donald Trump‘s feud with Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough as the dispute enters its second day. See Twitter reaction tweets from stars below.

As Gossip Cop reported, Trump slammed Brzezinski and Scarborough on Twitter on Thursday after the co-hosts and spouses-to-be dissed him on their MSNBC show, “Morning Joe.” The president claimed the program is “poorly rated,” called Brzezinski “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” and deemed Scarborough “Psycho Joe.” He also alleged Brzezinski wanted access to Mar-a-Lago and was “bleeding badly from a face-lift.”

“Morning Joe,” however, does just fine in the ratings and photos from the single night Brzezinski was at Mar-a-Lago show she wasn’t bleeding at all. She and Scarborough hit back on Friday in a newspaper column and on their show, during which they questioned Trump’s mental state and alleged his White House aides tried to blackmail them. The pair claimed they were warned that unless they apologized to Trump for being critical of him on their weekday program, the National Enquirer would publish an unflattering story about them.

Trump, though, took to Twitter again on Friday morning, to fire back with his own take. “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,” he wrote. Scarborough responded, “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. Why do you keep lying about things that are so easily disproven? What is wrong with you?”

For the second day in a row, the feud is the talk of Twitter. But Jedediah Bila has already had enough. She tweeted, “Call me crazy, but I’m bored by a twitter fight between Trump and cable news personalities. Health care? Immigration? Jobs? K thanks.” Andy Cohen said of Trump’s new tweet, “HOUSEWIVES PLAYBOOK: always take the bait.”

Patton Oswalt was upset by the claims of National Enquirer reporters following Brzezinski and her kids, as well as the allegation about White House aides blackmailing Scarborough. “Oh God. This is flat-out thug behavior by our President. Disgusting,” he wrote. In reply to Scarborough asking Trump why he keeps lying, Chris Evans wrote, “Because his supporters don’t care about integrity, let alone proof. And the GOP is too spineless to rock the boat. And he knows it.” And while most celebrities have sided with the TV hosts, Rosie O’Donnell agreed with a tweet that accused them of being critical for previously supporting Trump despite other questionable comments and acts, but complaining now when it’s about them. “They participated as he attacked others with impunity,” she wrote. Gossip Cop will continue to monitor the situation.
