"I know Melania", Brzezinski told InStyle magazine on Friday, amid her own bitter feud with the United States president. Basically, you'd be forgiven for thinking Regina George had written Trump's latest tweet.
Ms Brzezinski in recent weeks has wondered whether Mr Trump was mentally ill and said the country under his presidency "does feel like a developing dictatorship".
The White House offered to have a USA tabloid kill a damaging story about the hosts of a cable news show if they personally apologised to the president, according to the two journalists who have become the latest target of Donald Trump's attacks on the media.
Her "gut" said that Melania was only doing "the worst job in the country" for the sake of her young son, Barron.
On her Twitter page, Rep. Comstock retweeted footage showing Trump's Deputy Press Secretary Sarah H. Sanders saying, "I don't think so", when asked by a reporter if Trump's tweets went too far.
That set off a back-and-forth between Trump and Brzezinski, who responded by posting the following tweet.
"I am thinking about changing the name #FakeNews CNN to #FraudNewsCNN!", another of his tweet said.
The comments sparked a major backlash, as well as condemnation from within Trump's own Republican party. They also said President Trump is "not mentally equipped" to continue watching their show.
The President was criticized by those on both sides of the aisle for tweets he sent out Thursday that said Brzezinski was bleeding from a face lift when she and Scarborough visited his Mar-a-Lago estate over New Year's. "I don't think so".
"We ignored their desperate pleas", the two claimed.
But the source told Fox News there was no quid pro quo, that Kushner was only saying if Scarborough wanted to get back on speaking terms with Trump, an apology may be in order.
