The same morning that Hillary Clinton announced an $80 million TV ad buy, Donald Trump threatened to spill the beans about Joe Scarborough and “long-time girlfriend” Mika Brzezinski, his MSNBC co-host.

Trump, who has for months railed against “Morning Joe,” tweeted Monday morning:

The real estate mogul also tweeted he tried to watch the “low-rated” MSNBC morning show, but found it “unwatchable” because of “neurotic” Brzezinski.

The “Morning Joe” hosts, who have been rumored to have an off-screen romance, didn’t let Trump’s smear slide.

Scarborough fired back on Twitter:

The former congressman also sarcastically thanked the GOP nominee for tuning in.

Brzezinski, for her part, simply retweeted Clinton spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri suggesting Trump’s tweet showed he was “unnerved” by the campaign’s new ad.
