Republicans slam Trump over his sexist tweet on female journalist
It is no surprise when we hear a controversy surrounding US President Donald Trump as time and again he has been embroiled in one. The latest to recount is the sexist tweet he made on prominent female journalist Mika Brzezinski.
Trump called Mika Brzezinski "low IQ crazy Mika" in his tweet with response to the remarks about him on MSNBC show.
Trump shamed by Republicans over misogynistic tweet
How this sexist tweet stemmed from US President Trump?
It all started when journalist Brzezinski and her co-presenter Scarborough at MSNBC breakfast show, Morning Joe, derided President Trump. Reportedly, this ridiculing of the President started since he took office.
In recent weeks, Scarborough called Trump a "bumbling dope" while Brzezinski mocked members of the administration as "lobotomised".
The US President thereby hit back at Brzezinski saying "She was bleeding badly from a face-lift".
Trump faces Republicans ire
Senator Lindsey Graham said the US President's remarks were "beneath the office" of President stating that it represented what was going wrong with America.
Republican senator Ben Sasse too tweeted and asked the President to stop saying that "this isn't normal".
House Speaker Paul Ryan also critiqued Trump saying "I don't see this as an appropriate comment".
