Promoting his book, “The Right Path,” Scarborough and Kelly got into a friendly exchange over the belief that the former Congressman is a “faux conservative.”
“That’s so 2011…they don’t say that about me,” Scarborough told Kelly, adding that he “loves” Fox News’ Sean Hannity and conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh. “As you know, I’m a uniter, not a divider.”
“I don’t know that…I don’t know you at all,” Kelly shot back.
After Scarborough complimented Kelly on her studio, Kelly joked: “There’s still a blond woman on this set interrupting you at every turn,” she joked, referencing Scarbourough’s co-host Mika Brzezinski. “Only if you snapped your fingers at me, you’d have eight fingers instead of 10.”
And for the final friendly dagger, Kelly told viewers where to find Scarborough: “If you want to see more of Joe, you can join his four viewers and see it tomorrow morning,” Kelly laughed. “Just kidding,” she added.
For the record, Kelly was 298,996 total and 75,996 demo viewers short on her total. Last week, “Morning Joe” averaged 299,000 viewers and 76,000 demo viewers.
