Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke defended President Trump and went after those on the right who were criticizing his twitter attack on Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough in a tweet posted Thursday.

"People on the right criticizing for his tweet on Crazy Mika and Psycho Joe, stop yourselves," he posted.

"Those two are evil as is CNN," he concluded of the Morning Joe hosts.

The news cycle was upturned against by two tweets posted by Trump this morning in response to intense criticism from Morning Joe's Scarborough and Brzezinski.

"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 posted in on tweet. 

"...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!" he continued in a second missive. 

The personal attack rankled many on left and right, and has been condemned by many politicians. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) said, "The American people need us to be focused on health care and tax reform, not Twitter fights and cable news."

Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan.) said," This is not okay. As a female in politics I am often criticized for my looks. We should be working to empower women."

Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) tweeted, "This has to stop – we all have a job – 3 branches of gov’t and media. We don’t have to get along, but we must show respect and civility."

Sheriff Clarke recently rescinded his acceptance of an offer from President Trump to join his administration on the Office of Homeland Security. He had been accused of plagiarism by CNN's Andrew Kaczynski over the lack of citations in his master's thesis at the Naval Postgraduate School, a charge which Clarke called "electronic terrorism."
