US President Donald Trump has initiated yet another Twitter upheaval by two of his successive tweets on Thursday morning. A pair of tweets by Donald Trump right before 6am on Thursday came as a personal attack on television host Mika Brzezinski, describing the journalist as "bleeding badly from a facelift" as he claimed to have refused Mika Brzezinski and her ‘Morning Joe’ co-host Joe Scarborough to spend some time with him at his Florida club during News Year's Eve. During the morning MSNBC show, Brzezinski criticised the US President upon his current actions on Health Care in the US, calling him “narcissist”, to which the US President responded with a tweet directing the readers not to watch the show anymore and criticising the two hosts: "I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came."
“to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!"

US President is no stranger to the Twitter community’s backlash and just like always, these tweets successfully gained massive criticism for the President. A collective few of the reactions on Twitter blasting Donald Trump for his tweets are:
"Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America." Republican Senator Lindsey Graham.

Americans deserve a president, not a petty schoolyard bully. These sexist comments have no place in the @WhiteHouse. Unhinged and shameful. pic.twitter.com/l6MWAKaf0z— Jim McGovern (@RepMcGovern) June 29, 2017
“If you can't stifle the press, then you attack them personally. Today's tweets from Donald Trump are unpresidential and warrant an apology.” Senator Ed Markey

Interestingly, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, mentioned earlier this month that the tweets by the President of the United States were to be considered as official statements. The secretary was observed saying:
"The President is the President of the United States, so they're considered official statements by the President of the United States,"
This, however, did not indicate whether it included both of the US President's Twitter handles: @POTUS and @realDonaldTrump.
Such Twitter outbursts by the US President seem to be a regular occurrence by now. A couple of days earlier, he accused some of the media channels for producing Fake News and claimed that he knew more about Healthcare in the US than what is being showcased on those channels.
Some of the Fake News Media likes to say that I am not totally engaged in healthcare. Wrong, I know the subject well & want victory for U.S.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 28, 2017
Back in February, he challenged a Federal Appeals Panel to 'see them in court' after they rejected his move to reinstate temporary ban on citizens from seven Muslim-majority nations.
