Friday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe", co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski slammed President Donald Trump for refusing to wear a mask publicly.

After repeatedly addressing Dorsey in her tweets, asking him to "take down Trump's account", so that "the world would be safer", Brzezinski announced that a call with the Twitter CEO and his general council has been scheduled.

Trump is referring to the allegation that Scarborough, who is a former U.S. representative for Florida, was somehow involved in the death of one of his interns in 2001, who died after falling and hitting her head while working in his Florida office.

On May 12, Trump tweeted for the authorities to reopen the investigation.

Trump referred to the case because the "Psycho Joe Scarborough matter in Florida".

Trump has again hurt sentiments (supposedly) in a series of tweets. You're a sick person!


"That's sick, Donald, you're a sick person", she said, "to put this family through this".

In explicit, Brzezinski objected to Trump messages about Scarborough that the president posted Wednesday and on May 12.

Mika called Trump a "cruel, sick, disgusting person" on the air after he tweeted, "Roger Stone has been treated very unfairly".

It was an apparent attempt to suggest different standards of justice for his friends and his enemies - although the death dates back to 2001, when Scarborough was a conservative Republican congressman.

Brzezinski took offense to the president's hypothesis on whether or not Scarborough was instantly concerned within the case.

Brzezinski suggested that Trump is attacking her husband because he "speaks the truth" about the president's "lack of ability to handle this massive human catastrophe". Last week he had tweeted, "Did he get away with murder?"


"You should be ashamed of yourself", she told the social media company. Isn't it obvious? What's happening now?

'In both cases, the department undercut the work of career employees to protect an ally of the president, an abdication of the commitment to equal justice under the law, ' he wrote in an op-ed.

After the body of 28-year-old Lori Klausutis was found dead in Scarborough's Fort Walton Beach office, the medical examiner determined that she had collapsed from an undiagnosed heart condition and died hitting her head in the fall.

Trump tweeted out a compilation of comments Stone made on host Lou Dobbs" TV show on the Fox Business Network where Stone compared himself to fired Gen. Mike Flynn and said he was "set up' by prosecutors.

The co-presenters have been high-profile critics of the president for some time.
