The leader of our nation is once again making headlines for slamming a woman's appearance. As expected, Donald Trump's infuriating remarks have received much criticism, including one from the face of Bravo. Andy Cohen responded to Trump's Mika Brzezinski comment on Twitter Thursday and his tweet is hard to ignore.
"REAL HOUSEWIVES PLAYBOOK: accuse your co-star of a face lift. It's such a classic it recurs on Potomac in a couple weeks, and DC today!!," Cohen posted.
His tweet is in direct response to Trump lashing out at Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, the hosts of MSNBC's Morning Joe. "I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..", he first wrote. He continued, "...to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!"
As Cohen suggests and as fans of the reality series know, at times it's like Trump is taking on the role of a Housewife. On many occasions, the stars of Bravo's biggest franchise have taken jabs at each others' appearances and have questioned whether or not someone has had plastic surgery. It's a low blow and completely out of line, but those types of actions are what the Housewives have become know for — and now so has Trump.
As easily as the comparison between Trump and the Real Housewives can be made, it's also important to note that Trump's tweets should not be taken lightheartedly. Trump is not a reality star, he is the President of the United States
Cohen didn't stop with there with his reaction. He also replied to a Twitter user defending Trump. "He has a right to respond to all the morons who say nasty things constantly to him. What goes around.......," the person wrote. Cohen answered sarcastically, "He definitely does. And making fun of someone's face is the way to go!"
The same Twitter user responded, "If you give it you must be able to take it." To that, Cohen said, "that's true. not sure why Trump is so thin skinned!"
Rudely commenting on a woman's physical appearance is something no one should be proud of or a kind of behavior that should be repeated. However, Trump has a history of speaking to women in offensive ways. Whether he thinks he is complimenting a female reporter or making remarks about "blood coming out of her wherever," he can't seem to stop himself.
