In an interview with InStyle magazine released Friday, Brzezinski said that "Melania’s got the worst job in the country" and was doing it for her young son.

“I'm just telling you, Melania's got the worst job in the country and I don't think she wants do it a lot longer. I think she will do it for as long as she has to for her son, and that's it,” Brzezinski said.


The first lady responded in a statement through her press office to multiple outlets on Saturday, criticizing the "Morning Joe" co-hosts for using her to "further their own agenda."

“It is sad when people try to further their own agenda by commenting on me and my family, especially when they don't know me," the statement read.

President Trump on Saturday continued to go after Brzezinski and co-host Joe Scarborough, tweeting that the two aren't "bad people" but are dominated by "NBC bosses."

“Crazy Joe Scarborough and dumb as a rock Mika are not bad people, but their low rated show is dominated by their NBC bosses,” Trump tweeted early Saturday. “Too bad!”

The tweet furthered for a third day Trump's attack on the MSNBC hosts, after he sparked uproar with his tweets Thursday that claimed Brzezinski had been "bleeding badly" from a "face-lift."

According to Vanity Fair, Brzezinski revealed to Melania Trump on New Year's Eve that she had recently had a procedure to tighten skin on her neck.

In the report Friday, Scarborough said that Trump was impressed by the procedure, and asked for the name of the doctor who performed it.

"Donald kept saying, ‘That’s incredible. You can’t even tell? Who did it? Who did it?’" Scarborough told Vanity Fair. "He kept asking for the name of the doctor. He literally asked 10 times."
