Washington D.C. [USA], June 29 (ANI): U.S. House of Representatives speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday criticised President Donald Trump's attack on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. "Obviously, I don't see that as an appropriate comment. What we're trying to do around here is improve the tone and the civility of the debate. And this obviously doesn't help do that," the Hill quoted Ryan as saying when asked about Trump's early-morning tweets. Trump launched scathing attack on Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski in a series of Tweets: "I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..(sic)" "...to Mar-a-Lago 3 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! (sic)" Meanwhile, White House social media director Dan Scavino tore into Brzezinski and Scarborough on Twitter by saying the "Morning Joe" co-hosts are "lost, confused & saddened" because President Trump won't return their calls. ""#DumbAsARockMika and lover #JealousJoe are lost, confused & saddened since @POTUS @realDonaldTrump stopped returning their calls!. "Unhinged."(sic)" wrote Scavino. (ANI)
