MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough blew up at his co-host Mika Brzezinski for mocking him when he attempted to rationalize President Donald Trump’s reliance on his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, 100% Fed Up reports.
The two were discussing with their panel of guests about the couple’s roles in the Trump White House.
Scarborough, a former Florida Republican congressman, suggested Ivanka and Jared’s contribution could actually benefit the country despite complaints that their appointment looks like a case of “nepotism.”
Scarboroug said, “Things are going better on the National Security Council. That didn’t just happen.” “That was a battle inside the White House and guess what, Jared and Ivanka won,” he continued.
To further prove his argument, Scarborough pointed out that President John F. Kennedy appointed his brother, Robert, to be attorney general.
When Brzezinski asked if he was comparing Robert Kennedy to Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Scarborough shot back saying “You don’t have to be so snotty.”
“I was about to say, you didn’t let me get it out,” Scarborough angrily said. “You don’t have to be so rude.”
