Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski made an appearance on David Letterman‘s show Tuesday night where, evidently quite nervous, she revealed that she once saw former president Jimmy Carter in nothing but a Speedo while at Camp David.
“You got to know Jimmy Carter?” Letterman had asked, wanting to know more about Brzezinski’s unusual childhood. Her father, as you might know, had been President Carter’s national security adviser.
“I did,” she replied. “I… I… I saw him in a Speedo. I don’t know why I just said that. I’m nervous.”
Other highlights? Brzezinski recounted being privy to a secret meeting with Yasser Arafat and her mother challenging the Pope on birth control. Brzezinski also noted that one of her brothers grew up to be a Republican, so “he didn’t turn out so well.”
Letterman also revealed that he finds Mika’s co-host, Joe Scarborough, “threatening.”
