MSNBC Host Joe Scarborough appeared on “The Kelly File” Tuesday to promote his book, “The Right Path,” only to be subjected to a lighthearted roast at the hands of Megyn Kelly.
The jabbing really started after Scarborough complimented Kelly’s studio space, prompting her to joke, “There’s still a blonde woman on the set interrupting you at every turn.”
She then slyly referenced a heated MSNBC segment from 2013 in which Scarborough snapped his fingers at his co-host, Mika Brzezinski. He ended up apologizing for it.
“If you snap your fingers at me, you’d have eight fingers instead of ten,” Kelly said with a smile.
“Boy, you did your research did ya?” Scarborough replied. “You take my low point over the past five years…”
As Scarborough tried to steer the conversation back towards politics, Kelly couldn’t resist continuing the roast. Even when she plugged his book, she made sure to note how Fox News has “so many viewers,” insinuating he came to the right place to promote it.
Then she went after his show's ratings.
“Thanks for being here,” Kelly began. “You want to see more of Joe, you can join his four viewers and see it tomorrow morning… No, just kidding.”
“You sure are having a good time here. You really are,” Scarborough shot back, sending Kelly into a laughing fit.
