she and co-host joe scarborough came to visit him in mar-a-lago in december, "bleeding badly from a face-lift. i said no." the string of insults after brazinski mocked him on the show for having "teensy hands." >> nothing makes a man feel better than making a fake cover of a magazine about himself, lying every day and destroying the country. >> the president has been attacked mercilessly on personal accounts by members on that program. >> reporter: the white house defending the attack, but in person, president trump not willing to defend his own tweets. >> mr. president, do you regret your tweets this morning at all? >> reporter: still, democrats pouncing. >> stop the disrespect. >> i call him the cyber bully in chief. >> reporter: and republicans piling on to the bipartisan condemnation. >> look, what we're trying to do around here is improve the tone and the civility of the debate, and this obviously doesn't help do that. >> reporter: the tweets also reigniting the controversy over trump's attitudes towards women. >> i think it's so blatantly
sexist. i don't even know that there's a question about it. >> reporter: even drawing criticism from one woman whose vote he needs to get the senate's health care bill passed. >> it clearly was inappropriate. it is beneath the dignity of the office. >> reporter: and mika and joe hit back hard with a column in the "washington post," denying the president's claims and writing about his "continued mistreatment of women," adding thatthat america's leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president, saying he's "setting the poorest of standards for our children." reporting live in washington, jenay norman, "abc7 mornings." >> jenay, thank you. and take a look at the "new york daily news" front page this morning. there you see a bald eagle, head bowed, with the word "humiliation." all right, we're going to turn now to one of the year's busiest travel days, where protesters are expected back at sfo this morning to demonstrate against the president's revised travel ban.
>> that ban hasn't even been in effect a full day, and already there's a lawsuit filed against it. it. abc7 news reporter janine vega is live at sfo. >> reporter: there is a lot of confusion over who is allowed to enter the u.s. under the guidelines, you have to have a bona fide relationship with someone here. but a lot of people are upset, saying how is the government going to determine that? last night, there was a small group of protesters who were at sfo's international terminal, rallying against president trump's travel ban. it prohibits people from libya, iran, somalia, sudan, syria and yemen from entering the u.s., unless they meet certain criteria. protesters are vowing to come back to the airport today. under the new guidelines, visa applicants who have a close family member in the u.s., such as a parent or child, would be allowed to come, but others like grandparents or children are excluded. that's why hawaii filed an emergency court order demanding clarification. >> they worry, like we do, that
the trump administration is going to attempt to violate the supreme court's order. >> reporter: late yesterday, the trump administration made a change to the policy, saying fiances will now be considered close family members and will be allowed to travel to the u.s. lawyers and civil rights activists have been at sfo, offering legal help to anyone who has questions or is encountering trouble at the airport. it remains to be seen how this will all be played out, especially what the federal judge will say in response to this latest challenge. reporting live from sfo, janine de la vega, abc7 news. >> janine, thank you. california secretary of state alex padilla refusing to turn over voter data to an election commission created by president trump. the panel wants all 50 states to hand over names, addresses and political parties of their registered voters. that's 19.4 million people in california alone. the president said he wants the
commission to determine how widespread voter fraud is in the u.s., but padilla says he will not provide sensitive voter information to a commission that's already inaccurately passed judgment that millions of californians voted illegally. last november, president trump tweeted california was one of three states where "serious voter fraud" took place, but no official state or local-level officials have found any evidence to back up the president's assertion. developing news. it appears another investigation is under way involving oakland police and sexual misconduct. sources tell the "east bay express," an officer's accused having sex with a civilian in the basement of police headquarters. and this gets even more interesting, because during that investigation, officers found $100,000 of cocaine, heroin and marijuana stashed in a basement locker. the locker has been traced to lieutenant and internal affairs, who used the drugs for a training exercise 12 years ago.
