Huff Post: When NMPOTUS Trump went nuclear with that ugly tweet about Mika Brzezinksi's bleeding facelift (he sure has an issue with women and blood), who knew it would bear such fruit for his detractors?
Aside from the completely misguided liberals still clinging to the they go low, we go high mantra (which worked for the Obamas personally, but which didn't save them from having their eight years erased by Trump), the kerfuffle has now led to the allegation that when Mika and Joe Scarborough's relationship was about to be exposed by David Pecker's American Media via National Enquirer, top aides to Trump contacted the couple to warn them and demand that in order to scotch it, the couple had to call Trump personally and apologize for their coverage.
Trump is close with the vile Pecker.
It was reportedly Jared Kushner who told Scarborough he'd have to apologize to Trump for the negative coverage of his young presidency, a request which Scarborough refused. On cue, National Enquirer published a story exposing the morning co-hosts as a couple, and it if course had a sleazy slant to it.
This is the upper echelon of the White House blackmailing members of the media who had been critical of the President, and it is yet another impeachable offense.
National Enquirer has denied being a part of any such talks, a charge which is easy enough to believe, actually — Trump and his minions feel like they own the planet, let alone David Pecker, so it's not hard to believe they might negotiate first and involve Pecker later.
I wrote it on Facebook and I'll write it here — this is not like McCain or Romney or even Bush or Reagan: If you support or admire Trump you are a garbage person. End.
