MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough’s phone went off during the show and he struggled to stop a song from playing Tuesday morning.


Guest Eric Bolling had just finished making a point when “Baba O’Reilly” from The Who began to play from Scarborough’s phone.

“Look at that. Right in time for ‘Baba O’Reilly’. That’s pretty good,” Scarborough said at first. “The pressure is on you now, if I could just figure out how to stop this thing. Thank you. The pressure is on you, Charlie Sykes, while I try to figure out how to stop The Who from continuing,” Scarborough stated as his phone began to play The Who’s “Baba O’Riley.”

“There’s a problem. All right. Go ahead. Somebody get rid of this song. Geez, look at that. I know how to get it started. I just don’t know how to turn it off. All right,” he continued.

Charlie Sykes and Bolling couldn’t help but laugh at the situation.

“The problem is that, you know, Trumpism is making the conservative movement of the Republican Party — it is making it dumber, crueler, more dishonest, more disconnected with reality, more extreme,” Sykes said later in the segment, once it got back on track.
