WATCH: SNL Lampoons Scarborough and Brzezinski’s Morning Joe-mance

Saturday Night Live kicked off their show tonight by poking fun at the big romantic news about MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.

Earlier this week, it was confirmed that the co-hosts of Morning Joe are engaged to be married. The two of them got a lot of congratulations for their union on the show this week, though they often had to sidestep the topic while they talked about the news.

Tonight’s cold open showed “Brzezinski” and “Scarborough” (played by Kate McKinnon and Alex Moffat) as they held a charged debate about what Congress’ new bill will do to the American health care system. Despite the heated arguments between the two, they couldn’t help but get super-mushy with each other as they talked politics.

Eventually, “Brzezinski” and “Scarborough” decided to call the White House to get some perspective from the Trump administration. Unfortunately for the two of them, “Donald Trump” was pretending to be his own spokesperson again
