Upton Criticizes Controversial Trump Tweet

Congressman Fred Upton is among those criticizing President Donald Trump’s controversial tweet this week about MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski. Trump made a remark about the Morning Joe co-host attacking her for her physical appearance. Many have called the president’s tweet an act of bullying. Congressman Upton tells WSJM News it was not a good moment for the president.

“I’ve said for a long time that now that he’s president, he needs to stop this,” Upton said. “I think all of us were embarrassed with what he tweeted earlier this week. It just needs to stop. It’s not presidential. You don’t need to have these spats out in the open like this.. It just needs to stop.”

Upton tells us there are plenty of things that need to get done in Washington, and this latest tweet incident is a distraction. President Trump has been roundly criticized for the tweet. In it, he said Brzezinski was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” in a December encounter.
