Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzenzinski are chatting. As usual, Mika ‘gets it,’ but tries to detract. Scarborough doesn’t let her get away with it (this time). Partial transcript and video below.
JOE SCARBOROUGH TO MIKA: Democrats in Washington have been horrified by this president’s handling of things for a year-and-a-half now…the top Democrats in the United States Senate have all told me individually, this guy has no idea what he’s doing…
These Democratic chairmen in the Senate are saying: you’ve got to get us all in the room. They’ve got to get the Republicans in here. You lock arms before you do these things. They said the President just won’t do it.
[Mika tries to say Republicans have been to the White House]
Come on, come on Mika, seriously…that’s what the top Democrat Senators are saying. The people that you…you know damn well which powerful Senators that run the United States Senate, have been saying about Barack Obama for the past two years.
…for 18 months [Senator] Mitch McConnell, the most powerful Republican in the U.S. Senate did not have a one-on-one with Barack Obama – that is inexcusable on all levels and Democratic Senators will be the first to tell you that, and they have have told you that…
Hey Mike, just so I’m not exposed here, Mika can’t say it because she has talked to these same Democrat Senators, how many Democrat Senators running the Senate over the past to years have told you that they could pull their hair out. [“Mike” answers 7 different individual Senators have said exactly that].
Scarborough says he has had calls at home from Democratic Chairmen, asking “can you believe what he is doing today?
