"Please just stop" - even Republicans have a big problem with Trump's latest tweets
Even those within his Republican party have taken issue with Trump's latest tweet rant, which found the President making personal remarks on a female TV personality.
Earlier today, Trump tweeted about the hosts of an NBC political show, Morning Joe, in which he referenced that they were not being supportive of his presidency, and ended up insulting the show's hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
We have included screen-grabs of the tweets below, as we have a funny feeling they may end up deleted from his account before long.
According to USA Today, House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters, "Obviously I don't see that as an appropriate comment... What we're trying to do around here is improve the tone, the civility of the debate. And this obviously doesn't help do that."
The reaction online was immediate and immense, and some of it even came from Trump's own party, with GOP lawmakers and senators voicing their disapproval of his personal remarks:
Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America.

Please just stop. This isn't normal and it's beneath the dignity of your office.

This is not okay. As a female in politics I am often criticized for my looks. We should be working to empower women. https://t.co/sV6WDE0EUD
