While some people on Thanksgiving were grateful for new churches, new opportunities, new babies, grief, pain, and even spiders, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough was thankful for someone in particular: Hillary Clinton.

What are the details?

On Thursday night, the "Morning Joe" co-host shared an extensive Twitter update giving thanks for Clinton, all while taking shots at President Donald Trump.

Scarborough wrote, "I’m thankful that as a young Goldwater Republican, Hillary Rodham became interested in public service. The tragedy of Vietnam transformed her politics but did not dampen her passion to try and make the world a better place."

He went on and added that he's grateful for the former Secretary of State and presidential candidate's work ethic and determination.

"Though I’ve not often been on her side politically, I have respected her grit, determination and fierce work ethic," Scarborough added. "History will remember her as a challenged campaigner but should also remember her as a senator passionate about policy who was respected by Senate Republicans."

Scarborough concluded his Clinton celebration by noting that Americans simply "deserve better" — presumably "better" than Trump as president.

"Why give thanks for Hillary?" the MSNBC personality asked. "Because we must all do a better job understanding that the treatment Secretary Clinton has received from Trump and his allies discourages others on both sides from committing their lives to public service. Hillary deserves better. We deserve better."

Just hours prior to giving all his thanks for Clinton, Scarborough shared a photo of himself, Mika Brzezinski, and his mother.

He wrote, "We have so much to be grateful for but I’m so thankful for my amazing mom and the wonderful life her unconditional love and hard work made possible for us all."
