President Donald Trump went back to & # 39; Morning Joe & # 39; – a program he claims not to watch – after the namesake of the Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings publicly supported.
& # 39; Wow! Morning Joe & Psycho reviews have really crashed. Very small audience. People are tired of hearing Fake News delivered with an unbelievable rage. Sad, when the show was healthy, they helped me get elected. Thanks! Always on. I've lost all his juice! & # 39; he tweeted.
The couple had defended Cummings on social media the day before, after the president had launched a host of attacks against the black congressman representing Baltimore and the city near Washington.

Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski posted photos of Cummings during their wedding on Instagram and Twitter and praised the democrat with whom Scarborough served in the congress.
& # 39; Elia Cummings is a good friend and a great civil servant. America is blessed with his leadership, & Tweette Scarborough.
In an Instagram post, the former Florida representative shared a photo of Cummings during the wedding ceremony and said: & Elijah Cummings and I have been friends since we had jointly led the Civil Service Committee in Congress. He worked with me on the aisle, although I was considered too conservative for other committee members.
& # 39; He always kept his word and always worked hard for his voters. His integrity and tireless dedication to America is the reason why we are honored to have us married at the National Archives. In the 25 years that I have known Elia, he has remained a good friend and a great civil servant! & # 39;
The former Republican congressman fought on two fronts this week with the president and his allies, and also confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
The MSNBC host tore McConnell after blocking a democratic attempt to record an election security bill last week, hours after former Special Counselor Robert had warned that Russia was continuing its interference while we are sitting here & # 39 ;.
Scarborough smothered McConnell for the action, calling him & # 39; Moscow Mitch & # 39; and said he assists and supports Putin's continued efforts to undermine American democracy, according to Republican FBI, CIA, DNI. & # 39;
McConnell defended his reputation after stopping an election bill and accused Democrats of & # 39; Morning Joe & # 39; Scarborough from & # 39; modern McCarthyism & # 39 ;.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky. Defended himself against television presenter Joe Scarborough, who told him & # 39; Moscow Mitch & # 39; after he had blocked a bill for reform
McConnell responded Monday: & # 39; In the last few days, a few left-wing experts based on daring lies have called me unpatriotic, non-American, and essentially betrayal. & # 39;
& # 39; I was accused of assisting and complicit in the man I had chosen as an opponent and who was against it for almost 20 years, Vladimir Putin, & # 39; said McConnell, a Republican Kentucky.
& # 39; Morning Joe & # 39; host Joe Scarborough labeled McConnell & # 39; Moscow Mitch & # 39; for blocking an election reform attempt
Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified last week that Russia was involved in American elections while we are sitting here & # 39;
McConnell said he has been trying for decades to thwart Russian strong man Vladimir Putin
The McConnell movement also drew a severe reprimand from Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank, saying he was effectively a & # 39; Russian acquisition & # 39; was what Putin offered after his move.
McConnell called it a & # 39; shameful smear and based on more lies. & # 39;
A report from the Senate Information Commission released last week provides an overview of the attempt to interfere with the 2016 elections in Russia and the actions that the US government has and has not taken.
McConnell saved some of his comments not only for Scarborough, a former Republican congressman from Florida, but for his MSNBC network.
"This is the state of left-wing politics. These people have worn the volume knob so that they have nothing more than the most loose smears. Welcome to modern McCarthyism, & he said.
He blamed a & # 39; scandalous industrial complex & # 39; and called the election security bill, which allowed millions of extra funding, partial because only the Republican party voted for it.
According to President Obama's Chief of Staff Dennis McDonough, McConnell has watered down a warning from congress leaders & # 39; to election officials about attempted interference in September 2016.
McDonough said McConnell postponed it and & # 39; dramatically & # 39; weakened.
He said that Congress and the Trump government had taken enormous steps in the fight against election interference.
