Trump sent out two tweets this morning attacking MSNBC ‘Morning Joe’ co-host Mika Brzezinski.
Addis took to Twitter, quoting a tweet from South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham attacking Trump’s tweet, and asking if his opponents businessman Jeff Bartos and state Representative Rick Saccone (R-Allegheny) agreed with the tweet.

Graham was not the only GOP member of Congress to speak out against the tweet.
“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,” U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan said.
Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse took to Twitter to voice his displeasure with Trump.
Please just stop. This isn’t normal and it’s beneath the dignity of your office.

PoliticsPA reached out to both Bartos’ and Saccone’s campaigns for comment.
