Rep. Love rebukes Trump’s Twitter tirade

Local News
WASHINGTON (ABC4 Utah) – President Donald Trump is under fire for a Twitter attack he launched at MSNBC co-hosts. The tweets have caused outrage on both sides of the aisle. 
On Thursday morning, while MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” was on the air, Trump posted a pair of angry tweets about co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.

MSNBC responded with this statement: “It’s a sad day for America when the president spends his time bullying, lying and spewing petty personal attacks instead of doing his job.”
Representative Mia Love (R- UT) responded with this statement Thursday:
“Today’s tweet by POTUS undermines the Presidency and was absolutely inappropriate, no matter how much he feels he is the subject of ridicule from others. I wouldn’t accept behavior like this from my children.” 
Trump’s allies cast his outburst as positive, an example of his refusal to be bullied.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president was “pushing back against people who have attacked him day after day after day. Where is the outrage on that?”
“The American people elected a fighter; they didn’t elect somebody to sit back and do nothing,” she added.
