Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezinski’s were surprised at their engagement party with a Donald Trump impersonator.
The “intimate” party was hosted by Steve Rattner, a frequent contributor on “Morning Joe” and a former Obama official, reports Page Six. Guests included John Kerry, Chuck Schumer, Nicolle Wallace, Al Sharpton, Peggy Noonan, and Mayor Bill de Blasio.
The Trump impersonator reportedly interrupted Rattner’s toast, yelling, “I need to correct you. The fake news is at it again. They love to lie. The show is awful and unwatchable. People are saying it was canceled weeks ago.”
“I never colluded with Russia, and I never gave intelligence to Russians because I never had intelligence and I never will,” the impersonator also said.
The media pair got engaged in April during a trip to the French Riviera. Both left previous marriages while anchoring MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” together–Scarborough in 2013 and Brzezinski in 2016– and plan to get married next year.
During the early stages of his candidacy for president, Trump was a frequent guest on “Morning Joe,” but his relationship with Scarborough and Brzezinski deteriorated when the couple began criticizing him on the show. In June, Trump referred to them as “Psycho Joe” and “Crazy Mika” in tweets and mocked Brzezinski’s alleged bloody face lift. Brzezinski shot back by making fun of Trump’s small hands.
