Scarborough Makes 3 Roker ‘Poop’ Jokes

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today Joe Scarborough couldn’t nearly get his fill of Roker-White House “poop” references.

Discussing his book on the “Dateline” last week, morning weatherman Al Roker recalled a time he accidentally shit himself while trying to “pass a little gas” on his way to the White House press room. “I pooped my pants,” Roker said.

It was an admission that took on a life of its own last week and Scarborough wasn’t ready to put the skids on.

While talking about beauty pageants and a thing called “butt glue” this morning, Scarborough said “butt glue would have come in handy for Al Roker when he went to the White House.”

Joke No. 2 came when Scarborough apologized to co-host Mika Brzezinski for heatedly yelling at her last week. Scarborough said he had three New Year’s resolutions: Don’t angrily yell at Brzezinski again, interrupt her on the show less and “not to poop my pants next time I visit the White House.”

The third reference to Roker’s bowels came just three minutes later… On “Meet the Press” yesterday former State Secretary Colin Powell said there was a “dark vein of intolerance” in today’s Republican Party. Scarborough, a regular critic of the far right of the GOP, agreed today, recalling a book he wrote  after President Obama was first elected. He said it contained a message for conservatives: “It could be basically boiled down to: Don’t lose your Al-Roker-at-the-White-House.”
