Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough; Donald Trump used the National Enquirer to blackmail us
Here’s the skinny … Joe and Mika got caught with their pants down having a steamy sleazy affair and the National Enquirer reported on it in June. Now they claim Donald Trump and/or Trump’s aides tried to blackmail the pair with publishing negative stories by the National Enquirer.
Read all the dirtly little details of Joe and Mika’s steamy love affair while they were both married to other people.
Trump kicked off the feud on Thursday, tweeting scathing insults aimed at Scarborough and his co-host and fiancee, Mika Brzezinski.
The pair, who have been fiercely critical of Trump, even questioning the president’s mental health, responded Friday morning in a Washington Post opinion piece and then on their television show.[embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTZOSBnYeE4%5B/embedyt%5D
Scarborough and Mika claim that Trump aides tried blackmailing them into providing positive coverage.
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

The National Enquirer released a statement on the matter:
“At the beginning of June, we accurately reported a story that recounted the relationship between Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, the truth of which is not in dispute. At no time did we threaten either Joe or Mika or their children in connection with our reporting on the story. We have no knowledge of any discussions between the White House and Joe and Mika about our story, and absolutely no involvement in those discussions.”
Now, who knows if this is all true, but I’d say it’s a long shot to believe that White House aides and/or the President attempted to blackmail Joe and Mika. That’s just crazy — (BUT then again so is this entire story!) They just got caught with their pants down like cheaters often do — And they just didn’t want to get called out publicly. (And really who’d blame them)
And for President Trump’s part in this cat fight, I’d say it’s safe to say the President is sick to death of the unprofessional 24/7 negative coverage by liberal news outlets such as “Morning Joe”. Bottom line is if you can’t take it, then don’t be dishing it out! Maybe Joe and Mika should just get back to reporting the news and not opinions.
