Talk about bipartisanship, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are engaged! Nathan Rousseau Smith (@fantasticmrnate) has the scoop. Buzz60
First off, congratulations to the co-hosts of MSNBC's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, on their engagement, announced Thursday. After a decade of watching the office spouses on the air, they're making it official.
Now, to our favorite tidbit in a report from Vanity Fair: Before the pair were engaged, they lunched with the president, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner about a week after the inauguration.
As dishes were being served, the president came up with an idea: If the pair got married, maybe Brzezinski and Scarborough could do it at Mar-a-Lago or the White House.
"That’s when Jared interrupted and said, 'Hey, you know what? I’ve got my license. I could marry you,'" Scarborough, a former Republican congressman, said, according to Vanity Fair.
But someone else then cut in: President Trump himself.
“Why would you marry them? They could have the president of the United States marry them," he said.
Despite the suggestion, it's highly unlikely.
Brzezinski, the daughter of former president Jimmy Carter's national security adviser, told Vanity Fair, "The White House that I grew up in was an amazing place. If it weren’t Trump, it might be something to think about. The mental picture is just fascinating, but the reality is just . . . no. No, no, no, no, no."
