President Donald Trump slammed “Little Donny Deutsch” and his MSNBC colleagues in scathing tweets following remarks that the president and his supporters “own the blood that happens.”

The president mocked the MSNBC host, who recently kicked off his own political show on the network, recalling his days on NBC’s “The Apprentice,” and how Deutsch would “BEG” him to appear on the show.

“So funny to watch Little Donny Deutsch on TV with his own failing show. When I did The Apprentice, Donny would call me (along with @ErinBurnett & others) and BEG to be on that VERY successful show. He had the TV ‘bug’ & I would let him come on though he (& Erin) had very little TV talent,” Trump tweeted on Sunday.

“Then, during the 2016 Election, I would watch as Joe Scarborough & his very angry Psycho wife(?) would push Donny to the point of total humiliation,” he added, referring to the “Morning Joe”host and his wife, Mika Brzezinski. “He would never fight back because he wanted to stay on TV, even on a very low rated show, all in the name of ambition!”

Trump was apparently reacting to Deutsch’s comments on Friday’s edition of “Morning Joe” in which he claimed the president’s supporters “own” all of his actions, and can’t choose to support him on one issue while distancing themselves from another.

“This election comes down to guys like that and people saying, ‘No, you don’t get to say I’m for racial equality and all these good things and I disagree with him there, but I like his economic views, I’m going to vote for him,'” Deutsch said, urging Democrats to “shame” swing voters away from Trump in 2020.

“I think that’s the message that’s got to get out there: ‘You own it. You own the blood that happens. You own Charlottesville. You can’t do it. You get the whole package,'” he added, referring to the 2017 rally in Charlottesville, Va.

A short tine after Trump’s tweets, Deutsch responded by mocking the president’s age while offering a sarcastic thanks for watching.

Trump also unleashed on his former White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, who last week blasted the president’s visit to El Paso, Texas, as a “catastrophe.”

“Anthony Scaramucci, who was quickly terminated (11 days) from a position that he was totally incapable of handling, now seems to do nothing but television as the all time expert on ‘President Trump,’ ” Trump tweeted on Saturday, adding that Scaramucci actually “knows very little” about him

Scaramucci, who was booted in July 2017 as White House communications director after only 11 days on the job, has recently been very vocal in his criticism of the president.

He took to Twitter to respond to Trump’s rebuke.

But Trump must have hit a nerve when he poked the financier with a reminder.

“Anthony, who would do anything to come back in, should remember the only reason he is on TV, and it’s not for being the Mooch!” he tweeted.
