Mika Brzezinski, who co-hosts prominent television show, Morning Joe, is under fire from none other than President Donald Trump. In a series of tweets, Trump called her stupid and accused her of getting a face lift.

Apparently, this is not the first time that Trump has attacked Mika Brzezinski, the daughter of Zbigniew Brzezinski, America’s foremost foreign policy expert who also served as President Carter’s National Security Advisor.


Trump and Mika Brzezinski animosity is not something new. Both have taken on each other many a times in the past and Trump has called her almost everything that he could find words to describe. In the last one year alone, Trump is said to have tweeted about Mika Brzezinski as many as seven times, calling her “crazy,” “insecure,” “neurotic,” and “not very bright.” If that is not enough, he continues to call her show Morning Joe second rate and said that he doesn’t watches the show due to its poor ratings.

Trump tweet onslaught this time crossed every limit when he said, “I heard poorly rated Morning Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low-IQ, crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago three nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

Mika’s father Zbigniew Brzezinski who passed away in May 2017 was among the best known foreign policy experts that US has produced. He taught at different top universities in the US and was a known hawk who took tough ant-Soviet line. In 1976, President Carter made Brzezinski National Security Advisor. Brzezinski assisted with writing parts of Carter’s inaugural address, and this served his purpose of sending a positive message to Soviet dissidents. Brzezinski ordered Radio Free Europe transmitters to increase the power and area of their broadcasts, a provocative reversal of Nixon-Kissinger policies. Brzezinski advised Carter in 1978 to engage the People’s Republic of China and traveled to Beijing to lay the groundwork for the normalization of relations between the two countries. This also resulted in the severing of ties with the United States’ longtime anti-Communist ally the Republic of China (Taiwan).

Mika is a well-known author. Her memoir All Things At Once became a New York Times best seller in January 2010. Her second book, Knowing Your Value, which examines the role of women in the workplace, reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list for business books in 2011. Her third book, Obsessed: America’s Food Addiction and My Own, debuted on the bestseller list in spring of 2013. She has a very long and distinguished career in journalism. Prior to joining MSNBC in January of 2007, Mika was an anchor of CBS Evening News Weekend Edition and a CBS News correspondent who frequently contributed to CBS Sunday Morning and 60 Minutes. She reported live from Lower Manhattan for CBS News during the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Mika has stood against trivializing journalism and has fought for it. On June 26, 2007, she Brzezinski refused to read a report about Paris Hilton’s release from jail. Her producer Andy Jones again pushed the story as the lead, ranking it over Indiana’s Republican Senator Richard Lugar’s break with President Bush on the Iraq war, which Brzezinski considered more important. After several sarcastic remarks from host Scarborough, she attempted to set the story’s script on fire on the air, but was physically prevented from doing so by co-host Geist. She then tore up the script, and one hour later, got up and ran another copy of the script through a paper shredder retrieved from Dan Abrams’s office.

On October 23, 1993, Brzezinski married TV news reporter James Patrick Hoffer, now of WABC-TV. They met when both worked at WTIC-TV. They have two daughters, Emilie and Carlie Hoffer. Hoffer and Brzezinski divorced in 2016. In early 2017, Brzezinski became engaged to her co-host Joe Scarborough. Earlier this month, it was revealed that Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, the co-hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, are engaged to be married. Both have children from previous marriages– Joe has three sons and one daughter, while Mika has two daughters.
