The co-hosts of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program hit back at President Trump after his Twitter attack on them.

In an op-ed in Friday's Washington Post, co-anchors Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough wrote that they had criticized Trump, but that "our concerns about his unmoored behavior go far beyond the personal."

"America's leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president," they wrote.

"We have out doubts," they added, "but we are both certain that the man is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show."

Trump soon retaliated with yet another tweet.

To which Scarborough responded.

The president's Twitter wars have exasperated Republican lawmakers and discouraged even many of his supporters, but he shows no sign of changing his long-set ways.
