Mika Brzezinski Refuses to Hold Joe Scarborough’s Hand on MSNBC



Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski co-hosted Morning Joe on MSNBC for years before they shocked (or not, it was pretty obvious) the cable news world by getting engaged on the Cap D’Antibes last year.

But more than a year into their engagement, and lord knows how long into their dalliance, Mika still won’t let Joe hold her hand on air.

Brzezinski’s strict anti-PDA rules were on glaring display Thursday morning in the breakfast show’s opener, as she welcomed back Joe from some time off.

Joe reached for his soon-to-be bride’s hand, and Mika pulled away, coolly replying: “Not on the air.” Joe sought support from his Morning Joe guests, but didn’t find much.

To be fair, the display was tepid compared to February, when Joe spent an entire episode trying to hunt down and secure Mika’s hand in his. She rebuffed him that time too.
