not a good sign

Even Jerry Springer thinks Trump's tweets were undignified

Jerry Springer, the talk show host known for mediating vulgar and sometimes violent fights between cheating couples, is shaking his head at President Trump. In a tweet Friday, Springer deemed Trump's behavior not just unpresidential, but beneath "that of any decent man":

That's a harsh assessment from an entertainer whose website asks potential guests if they have a friend who is "always getting drunk and stealing your men" or if they "have a ratchet person trying to interfere with your relationship."

Springer's criticism came a day after Trump went on a sexist Twitter rant about Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, calling her "low I.Q. Crazy Mika" and claiming she was "bleeding badly from a facelift" when she tried to join him at his Mar-a-Lago resort over New Year's Eve.

Springer has long made it known he is not a fan of Trump. During the presidential election, Springer suggested Trump was "the only person who's ever run who is opposed to the idea of America." While his show may contain a lot of chair-throwing, Springer said at least his guests "aren't making up lies." "They're upset. They're angry," Springer said. "That's totally different than Trump."
