UTAH — Rep. Mia Love had harsh words for President Donald Trump Thursday.

The statement released by Love’s office reads: “Today’s tweet by POTUS undermines the Presidency and was absolutely inappropriate, no matter how much he feels he is the subject of ridicule from others. I wouldn’t accept behavior like this from my children.”

The statement from Love, a Republican who represents Utah’s Fourth Congressional District, is in response to a pair of tweets from the President, which insulted the hosts of MSNBC’s  “Morning Joe”.

The remarks made over a pair of tweets insulted both hosts but also singled out Mika Brezinski’s looks. The text of those tweets are reproduced as one statement below:

“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 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!”
