What’s Joe’s Problem With Mika’s Dad?

Mika Brzezinski‘s father is a regular on “Morning Joe,” which can present some awkwardness when Joe Scarborough starts to semi-trash talk him.

At 7:30 a.m. Monday, former Rep. Harold Ford Jr. (D-N.Y.) was trying to tell a story about Jimmy Carter‘s former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski’s “brilliant” presence at a recent award ceremony and Joe kept saying “no no no no” until he begged to get his point out.

Ford wouldn’t let Scarborough get a word in edgewise.

Mika laughed it off and seemed to side with her father.

“Was kind of awkward,” a tipster told The Mirror.

To be fair, Joe may have no problem whatsoever with Mika’s dad. They seem to get along when Daddy B. comes on the show. But he interrupts and says so many “no’s” that it appears he was upset about something Ford was carrying on about involving Bob Gates, the esteemed recipient of the Brzezinski award.
