Joe Scarborough this morning picked a particularly personal way of attacking First Lady Melania Trump. On Morning Joe, accusing Melania of hypocrisy for choosing as a personal initiative an effort to combat cyber-bullying, Scarborough said:
“Maybe she should start with Patient X or Patient Zero . . . when she sleeps with the worst bully in America.“
Scarborough prefaced his snide comment with a review of the barbs that President Trump has hurled toward Joe and his co-host and fiancee Mika Brzezinski.
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: First Lady Melania Trump visiting a Detroit area middle school yesterday as part of her campaign to combat cyber-bullying. During her lunchtime stop the First Lady encouraged students to treat one another with kindness and respect while highlighting the No One Eats Alone initiative.

WILLIE GEIST: There’s an obvious level of hypocrisy in this effort. At the same time, I will say what I’ve said before, which is to have someone of her status and to have someone with her influence taking on this issue is not a bad thing for the country, but she should certainly speak to her husband about that.
JOE SCARBOROUGH: Maybe she should start with Patient X or Patient Zero . . . when she sleeps actually with the worst bully in America.
