MSNBC's "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough tore into fellow host Mika Brzezinski Wednesday, calling her "snotty" and "rude" for interrupting him just to get in a "cheap shot."
Along with a panel of guests, the two were discussing President Donald Trump's son-in-law and daughter, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, and the couple's roles in the administration. Scarborough, who was once a Republican congressman from Florida, suggested that for all the "nepotism" complaints Jared and Ivanka have received, their work could actually be beneficial to the country.
To help make his point, Scarborough used the close relationship between President John F. Kennedy and his brother, Bobby Kennedy, who served as attorney general during the Kennedy administration.
"I think if you look at Bobby Kennedy's record, you'd say some good things came out of that," Scarborough said.
Brzezinski interrupted, asking her co-host if he was comparing Ivanka Trump to Bobby Kennedy. That's when Scarborough laid into Brzezinski.
"You don’t have to be so snotty. I was about to say, you didn’t let me get it out," Scarborough told Brzezinski. "You don’t have to be so rude."
Scarborough went on to explain that he didn't mean to compare Ivanka Trump to Bobby Kennedy, but noted some similarities:
The fact of the matter is that they are not Bobby Kennedy, as I was about to say. But you wanted to get your cheap shot in, so you got your cheap shot in.
No, I am not saying Jared and Ivanka are Bobby Kennedy. Bobby Kennedy did a lot of things before he became attorney general of the United States. But I am saying just like when John Kennedy had a question, he called the one person he could trust in the world, Bobby Kennedy, to come into the Oval Office, and they sat there and talked.
