The tweets were the latest and most vicious anti-media statements made by the president in recent weeks.

Trump wrote in a tweet around 8 a.m. that he heard that the “poorly rated” MSNBC morning show “speaks badly of me.”

“Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago (three) 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!” he wrote.
