MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were married in a secret ceremony over the weekend, during which they highlighted  their mutual dislike of President Donald Trump.

What are the details?

The couple wed at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, in front of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights, Vanity Fair reported.

"We did an event there more than a year ago and we were just blown away," Brzezinski said of the venue. "It makes sense now more than ever, given what we stand for as a couple, what we do for a living, and what we're worried about as a country."

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) served as officiant for the nuptials, a decision the magazine said "bore the weight of symbolism." Cummings is ranking member of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which is investigating President Trump, The Hill noted.

"He's a representative of the movement forward, of getting the country back," Brzezinski said of Cummings.

During a toast later that evening, Cummings announced, "I am here tonight because of the important work Joe and Mika do every day and to celebrate them and the love they have for each other and their kids."

What's the background?

Scarborough — who is a former Republican congressman from Florida — left the GOP earlier this year, in part, he said, because of President Trump.

The couple has maintained a very public ongoing feud with the president, which began prior to Trump's 2016 election win.

Last year, Trump referred to the hosts as "Crazy Joe Scarborough" and "dumb as a rock Mika."

Recently, Scarborough penned an 0p-ed asserting that Trump and his policies have done more harm to the U.S. than the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Since the feud began, "Morning Joe" has devolved into a program "where panelists rip into Trump on a daily basis," The Hill reported last week.

Brzezinski and Scarborough have co-hosted the show for a decade, and announced their engagement in May 2017. This is the third marriage for Scarborough and the second for Brzezinski, who was divorced in 2016.
