President Donald Trump denounced MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski on Thursday after the "Morning Joe" co-host called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo a "butt-boy" on air Wednesday for his defense of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

Anderson provided a list of alternative words Brzezinski might have used to describe Pompeo's conduct towards Saudi Arabia. "I'm not the speech police", Hannity said.

Donald Trump, Jr., called out the double standard of MSNBC's lack of response to date in contrast to the recent Oscar controversy, tweeting out: "This is disgusting!" Twitter users lit up her account, pointing out that her insult was more akin to Trumpian strategy than anything else, though, thankfully, Brzezinski was quick to respond with an apology. Last year, the president attacked her on Twitter, calling her "low I.Q. Crazy Mika" and claiming that she had recently had plastic surgery.
