‘Facelift’ fallout begins! WH stands ground on Mika tweet, while libs organize next strategy to oust Trump

As the dust cleared from the Twitter battle between President Trump and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” reactions came in from all sides.

Grabbing their symbolic pitchforks and torches, liberals demanded invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president who tweeted about MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski’s bleeding face after she allegedly had a facelift.

The provision in the U.S. Constitution allows the removal of a president if he is found to be “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” The 25th Amendment has never been used and there is little evidence to believe it could be implemented in Trump’s case, given that a 2/3 vote by the Senate and the House is required to remove any president incapable of performing his duties.

Uber-liberal Keith Olberman was quick to pounce, but he was far from alone:

While falling short of calling for the 25th Amendment, some Republican politicians, albeit not fans of Trump, called for the President to cool it with the personal insults:

While the Twitter feud was no doubt an embarrassment for all involved parties, Melania Trump’s communications director defended the president in a statement issued Thursday.

“As the First Lady has stated publicly in the past, when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder,” Stephanie Grisham wrote.

The White House stood behind the president as well, stating that he would not be bullied.

“I don’t think that the president has ever been someone who gets attacked and doesn’t push back,” deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” Thursday.

“There have been an outrageous number of personal attacks, not just to him but everyone around him,” she told host Bill Hemmer. “This is a president who fights fire with fire, and certainly will not be bullied by liberal elites within the media or Hollywood or anywhere else.”

Sanders noted that she has been the target of attacks from the MSNBC show, herself.

“I’ve been called a lot of names on that show that don’t have anything to do with my beliefs, or ideology, or policy. But they’re personal attacks,” she said.

She added that Trump “isn’t going to be somebody who’s bullied and allows people, himself, and those around him, to be personally attacked.”

And that’s how a lot of Trump supporters see it. Case in point:
