Mika Brzezinski Finally Gets Her ‘Truck’ After Winning Bet With Mike Barnicle

Mika Brzezinski got the new ride she’s been waiting on for months now…though it wasn’t quite what she expected.

It was a little over a year ago when Donald Trump announced his presidential candidacy, and the Morning Joe host warned the media and political worlds not to underestimate him. MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle said that the idea of Trump’s victory was preposterous, and he made an on-air promise to buy Brzezinski a new truck if Trump managed to clench the nomination.

Though Trump has generated countless controversies and major skepticism since his announcement speech, he did emerge as the 2016 nominee.  Brzezinski has been ribbing Barnicle for months on the show and telling him to bring out the checkbook. Well, in a way, Barnicle followed through on Friday morning.

Joe Scarborough wasn’t letting Barnicle off that easily, and he rallied their live audience to demand “where’s the truck.” Brzezinski, on the other hand, seemed mildly amused as she said the toy truck was “symbolic in so many ways.”

Well played, Mr. Barnicle.
