Trump launches personal attack on ‘crazy, low IQ’ female journalist

Published

Washington, Jun 29 (AFP) President Donald Trump today launched a brutal personal attack on MSNBC journalist Mika Brzezinski, after she sharply criticised his administration’s dysfunction in a segment on her show.

“I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore),” Trump wrote, referring to a morning news show featuring Brzezinski and co-host Joe Scarborough.

“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!” Trump tweeted.

The president, an avid cable news watcher, appears to have been responding to sharp comments by Brzezinski during Thursday “Morning Joe” program on the left-leaning MSNBC cable network.

“Everybody in Washington,” Brzezinski said, “in the administration, needs to look at this from… a point of view where they’re not lobotomised because you’re sitting in there and you’re so scared of him, and you think you need to suck up to the president.”

If a boss at NBC – MSNBC’s parent company – “started tweeting wildly about people’s appearances, bullying people, talking about people in the competition, lying every day, undermining his managers, throwing them under the (bus) – that person would be thrown out.

“It’s just not normal behaviour,” she said. “In fact, there would be concerns that the person who runs the company is out of his mind.”

Brzezinski appeared to be uncowed by Trump’s Twitter attack. She responded to his tweet with a post of her own, a photo of a young child reaching for Cheerios cereal.

“Made for little hands,” the picture caption read – a schoolyard taunt that has been levelled against the image- conscious Trump since the days of his candidacy.

Scarborough re-tweeted a comment from CNN reporter Jake Tapper: “This reminds me: how is @FLOTUS’s campaign against cyber-bullying going?” it said, referring to First Lady Melania Trump.

Trump was often interviewed on “Morning Joe” during the 2016 presidential campaign, but as the White House relationship with much of the US media has soured he has recently favoured interviews with friendly right-wing outlets.

Brzezinski, 50, is the daughter of the late Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was president Jimmy Carter’s national security advisor.

Scarborough, 54, is a Republican former congressman who represented a Florida district in the 1990s.

The two are engaged to marry.

US unemployment rate falls to 50-year low

Published

on

The U.S. unemployment rate fell in September to a new five-decade low of 3.5%, while employers added a modest 136,000 jobs.

The Labor Department says that despite the ultra-low unemployment rate, which was down from 3.7% in August, average hourly wages slipped by a penny. Hourly pay rose just 2.9% from a year earlier, lower than 3.4% at the beginning of the year.

Hiring has slowed this year as the U.S.-China trade war has intensified, global growth has slowed, and businesses have cut back on their investment spending. Still, hiring has averaged 157,000 in the past three months, enough to lower the unemployment rate over time.

The unemployment rate for Latinos fell to 3.9%, the lowest on records dating from 1973.

New York, Sep 26 : US President Donald Trump was subjected to an embarrassment when the MSNBC news channel cut away from his press conference while he was speaking on the controversy surrounding him over the Ukrainian probe against former Vice President Joe Biden.

Trump on Wednesday was addressing the press conference against the backdrop of impeachment proceedings announced against him by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi following allegations that he put pressure on the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to order a probe against Biden whose family has business interests there.

The allegation against Trump came to light because of a whistleblower and a transcript of the conversation between him and Zelensky in July, which has become public.

As Trump was speaking to the media after meeting Zelensky to clarify his position, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace cut into it, saying: “We hate to do this but the President isn’t telling the truth.”

She added that Trump was trying to do it to deflect the attention from his impeachment.

According to the transcript of the telephonic conversation that has gone public, Trump is heard asking Zelensky to “do us a favour”, after the latter expresses gratitude for the military aid the US provided to his country.

Trump’s words of “do us a favour” is seen as a quid pro quo for the American military aid, because of which the impeachment proceedings have been announced.

After Wallace cut the press conference, her guest on the programme, justice and security analyst Matthew Miller, rebuked Trump for saying that Biden and his son had done wrong.

“This story has been looked at and thoroughly debunked by everyone involved,” Miller said, adding the real issue was whether Trump’s conduct is “impeachable”.

Trump is facing problem at a time when he is in New York to attend the UN General Assembly.

Kim Jong-un receives ‘excellent’ letter from Trump

Kim , Trump

Pyongyang, June 23 North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has received a personal letter with “excellent” and “interesting” content from US President Donald Trump, Pyongyang’s state media said on Sunday.

“After reading the letter, the Supreme Leader of the Party, the state and the armed forces said with satisfaction that the letter is of excellent content,” the Korean Central News Agency said, referring to its leader.

“Appreciating the political judging faculty and extraordinary courage of President Trump, Kim Jong-un said that he would seriously contemplate the interesting content,” it added.

The KCNA did not disclose when and how the letter was delivered to Kim, reports Yonhap News Agency.

The letter appears to be in response to the one Kim sent to Trump recently in time for the anniversary of their first-ever summit in Singapore last June.

Trump had described Kim’s letter as “beautiful” and “very warm”. He also emphasized that the relationship between them remains strong and that “something will happen that’s going to be very positive”.

The exchange of correspondence between the leaders renewed hopes for a resumption of denuclearization talks which have stalled since the breakdown of their second summit in February.

The summit collapsed as Pyongyang wanted sanctions relief as a corresponding measure in exchange for dismantling its Yongbyon nuclear complex, while Washington insisted that sanctions should remain in place until the North completely gives up its nuclear weapons programme.
