Trump defends tweets as ‘modern day presidential’ in renewed attack on media

Associated Press

Hours after taking to Twitter to lash out at talk show hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski for the third time in as many days, President Trump renewed his screed against “fake news” Saturday afternoon and defended his use of social media.

Trump drew broad condemnation for his tweets on Thursday calling Brzezinski “crazy” and saying she was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” when he saw them at his Florida estate. The comment was decried as sexist and vulgar by many Democrats and Republicans.

Trump appeared to stand by those comments Saturday, hitting back at those who criticized them as less than presidential.
