Take PRWeek's poll: Should Twitter suspend Trump's account over his tweets about Brzezinski?

President Donald Trump's latest rant on Twitter has flabbergasted "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert.

He, however, defended his aggressive use of the micro-blogging site as an alternative to the mainstream U.S. media that spread "hate and false information" about him. But those analysts also have been largely critical of Trump.

If anyone believed that Donald Trump was about to stop tweeting about Morning Joe hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, they were sadly mistaken.

Although the White House defended the President's conduct, some of his Republican colleagues made their disapproval of the tweets public. Trump tweeted about Brzezinski: "She was bleeding badly from a facelift".

This comes after outrage earlier this week when he directed blatantly sexist attacks against Brzezinski, insulting her appearance and intelligence.

Trump's deputy spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Trump's attacks on Brzezinski, Scarborough and other media were part of his natural instinct to "fight fire with fire".

Referring to a meeting with the two anchors at his Florida resort Mar-a-Lago in December 2016, Trump posted a tweeted in which he called them "psycho Joe" and "low IQ insane Mika", and then, wrote that Brzezinski "was bleeding badly from a face-lift". Scarborough said he and Brzezinski refused.

The video was posted a few days ago on Reddit in a pro-Trump subreddit, journalist Brian Stelter noted on Twitter.

In a series of tweets posted within about half an hour of one another, Trump attacked cable television stations, labeling CNN "fake news" and saying NBC News executives push "Trump Hate!"

Lawson said Friday state law only allows her to share voter names, congressional districts and addresses. And Trump is heading to the annual Group of 20 meeting this week, where he will meet with Russian President Vladamir Putin, a high-stakes encounter that could put Trump's "America First" policy to the test.

The president also leveled another attack on CNN, calling it, "garbage journalism". "I was FaceTiming all my friends, telling them to get it done, that it wasn't so bad".

Is President Trump aware of his own obsession with women and blood?
