"Morning Joe's weakness is its low ratings. I don't watch anymore but I heard he went wild against Rudy Giuliani and #2A - sad & irrelevant!" Trump tweeted, referring to the Second Amendment in shorthand.



Scarborough, a former Republican congressman, has been a consistent critic of Trump throughout his presidential campaign. 

He quickly responded to Trump's tweet: "Donald thanks for continuing to obsess over our irrelevant show that you watch everyday. Highest ratings ever. Glad!"
