“Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski fired shots at President Trump this Monday over his early morning tweet attacking China’s trade policies.
Scarborough and Brzezinski debut a “Trump Twitter Bingo” board which was covered with words, phrases and nicknames that the president often makes use of in his tweets, such as “Crooked Hillary,” “Fake News” and “Democrats.”
The first spot to be checked off was “China,” in response to Trump’s tweet slamming “stupid” trade practices with the nation.
When a car is sent to the United States from China, there is a Tariff to be paid of 2 1/2%. When a car is sent to China from the United States, there is a Tariff to be paid of 25%. Does that sound like free or fair trade. No, it sounds like STUPID TRADE – going on for years!

“When a car is sent to the United States from China, there is a Tariff to be paid of 2 1/2%,” Trump tweeted Monday. “When a car is sent to China from the United States, there is a Tariff to be paid of 25%. Does that sound like free or fair trade. No, it sounds like STUPID TRADE — going on for years!”
Trump has been trading tariff threats with China over the past few weeks, a feud that has sparked fears of a poetinal trade war.
“We’ll see if we can get a few more markers on the board before the morning is over,” Brzezinski said. “Definitely through the week, that’ll be fun.”
Trump has criticized Brzezinski and Scarborough in the past, including a controversial tweet last June in which he suggested that Brzezinski was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” when he ran into her at Mar-a-Lago.
Brzezinski and Scarborough both noted that the board was missing squares for “Mika” and “Psycho Joe.”
