His targets: presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, and U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Shortly before going on-air Trump launched a tweet attacking MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski as a “ditzy airhead wife.”

He also called U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) “not even smart,” as CNN’s Daniel Dale reported.
