President Trump sent out two tweets Thursday morning, insulting the co-hosts of the MSNBC show "Morning Joe." Trump mocked Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski as "Psycho Joe" and "low I.Q. Crazy Mika." He wrote that the two "came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me," adding, "She was bleeding badly from a face-lift."

Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik (@davidfolkenflik) about the Twitter comments and how they reflect on the White House.
