Trump’s long history of calling women ‘crazy,’ attacking their appearance

President Donald Trump made insulting comments about MSNBC personalities Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough today on Twitter, calling Brzezinski “crazy” and claiming she was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” a few months ago.

This is far from Trump’s first attack on a woman, and his relationship with female voters was dramatically tested during the presidential campaign when an 11-year-old recording of his conversation with then–”Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush about grabbing women was released.

Trump dismissed that tape as “locker room talk,” and he made disparaging comments about women and their appearance during his campaign and after winning the election.

Here is a rundown of some of his attacks.

Mika Brzezinski

Today is not the first attack on Brzezinski by Trump.

In August 2016 he called her “off the wall, a neurotic and not very bright mess,” “very insecure” and “crazy” in three tweets spanning five days.

The next month, Trump wrote “crazy and very dumb @morningmika had a mental breakdown while talking about me” on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

This morning he said that she had had a face-lift and tried to spend time with him at his Mar-a-Lago estate, writing in two 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…..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!”

He wasn’t the only member of the Trump administration to insult the two on-air hosts, who recently announced their engagement. Just a half-hour before Trump posted his tweets, the president’s director of social media, Dan Scavino Jr., tweeted on his personal account: “#DumbAsARockMika and lover #JealousJoe are lost, confused & saddened since @POTUS @realDonaldTrump stopped returning their calls! Unhinged.”
