Scarborough on SNL Parody: ‘Would Probably Enjoy Them If We Didn’t Have Children’
Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski aren’t exactly thrilled with how they are portrayed on Saturday Night Live.
Scarborough gave an interview to The Daily Beast where he talked about his musical career and the strangeness of agreeing with President Trump‘s liberal critics after years of being a conservative. Of course, the Morning Joe hosts were recently lampooned by Alex Moffat and Kate McKinnon, so Scarborough was asked how he felt about about the depiction.
“I think we would probably enjoy them if we didn’t have children,” Scarborough said. “We get uncomfortable because of our children — so it makes us wince.”
SNL parodied Morning Joe last year as well, though Brzezinski and Scarborough didn’t seem all that excited to see it back then. Scarborough and Brzezinski are both divorcees and engaged to be married, and its possible that the former is uncomfortable with SNL because Moffat and McKinnon parody the news hosts by getting lovey-dovey with each other in the middle of their show.
Still, Scarborough enjoyed how the recent show incorporated Michael Wolff and Bill Murray‘s portrayal of Steve Bannon
“That was very funny…Mika and I get very self-conscious…Fred Armisen as Wolff was absolutely hilarious, and it was exciting to see Bill Murray.”
Scarborough was also asked about his band’s new single “Stand,” which has been taken by many as a salute to the Women’s Marches. The song has been getting a mixed reception online, and it seems Scarborough responded after Mediaite‘s own Rachel Dicker wrote a snarky piece about how Morning Joe incorporated the song into today’s show
“It’s always a tale of two cities,” Scarborough responded to the reception.
