First lady Melania Trump’s spokeswoman said the president will "punch back 10 times harder" when attacked in response to President Trump’s tweets earlier in the day attacking “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski

“As the first lady has stated publicly in the past, when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder,” the first lady’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in a statement to CNN.  

Melania Trump has listed eliminating cyberbullying as one of her priorities as first lady.

The president tweeted on Thursday that Brzezinski “was bleeding badly from a face-lift” when she and her MSNBC co-host Joe Scarborough "insisted" on joining the then-president-elect at his New Year's Eve party at Mar-a-Lago.

 

 

 

 

Brzezinski promptly responded to Trump’s attacks tweeting a picture of a Cheerios promo that was labeled “made for little hands,” in a reference to an attack on Trump made by Sen.
