MSNBC’s "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski took a jibe at first lady Melania Trump and senior adviser to the president Ivanka Trump on Tuesday saying they have been given “fake jobs” in the White House.

Brzezinski’s comment was targeted at Ivanka who recently, in an interview, said it was “inappropriate” to ask a daughter any sort of questions about sexual misconduct involving her father.

“I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated that there’s no truth to it. I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters. I believe my father, I know my father,” Ivanka told NBC’s Peter Alexander at the time.

Brzezinski, who was discontented with Ivanka’s response, said if the first daughter can’t handle a question like the one about her father, then the whole thing was clearly a joke.

“'Well it's not like she's transportation secretary. She came in there to fight for women and she can't handle a question like that — the whole thing is clearly a joke. An utter joke. Just like Melania [Trump]’s role on cyberbullying, which an insult to women,” Brzezinski said.

“[It’s] insulting to women [that] these women have been given fake jobs,” she further added.

Brzezinski was previously targeted by President Donald Trump in June last year when he launched a series of tweet attacks against her calling her “crazy.”

In a series of tweets, the president had said that she looked as if she was “bleeding badly from a facelift.”

“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!” Trump tweeted at the time.

Trump’s remarks on Brzezinski came after she along with her show’s co-host Joe Scarborough published an op-ed in the Washington Post titled “Donald Trump is not well.”

“The president’s unhealthy obsession with our show has been in the public record for months, and we are seldom surprised by his posting nasty tweets about us. This year, top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the president to have the story spiked. We ignored their desperate pleas,” they wrote in the op-ed.

“The president’s unhealthy obsession with 'Morning Joe' does not serve the best interests of either his mental state or the country he runs. Despite his constant claims that he no longer watches the show, the president’s closest advisers tell us otherwise. That is unfortunate. We believe it would be better for America and the rest of the world if he would keep his 60-inch-plus flat-screen TV tuned to 'Fox & Friends,'” they further wrote.
