MSNBC bleeped anchor Joe Scarborough’s expletive as the Wednesday panel discussed biblical comparisons to former President Donald Trump.

The panel discussed the Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump organization, and its new advertisement “God Made a Dictator.” The video included a montage including images of Trump and famous historical dictators to compare the former president to such figures.

The hosts attempted to justify the advertisement by playing a clip of former presidential candidate Ben Carson appearing to compare Trump to King David, a figure in the Old Testament. While mocking Carson, the show bleeped out Scarborough’s use of the word, “sh*t.”

Watch the clip:

“He goes from, Donald Trump is like King David, a man after God’s own heart, to Neil Cavuto saying okay, so you’re comparing him to King David? And then he goes, well, you know, his policies on quantitative easing are fascinating,” Scarborough said. “He kinda went from the Old Testament, man after God’s heart, to ‘I like some of his policies.’ You know, maybe that’s the perfect interview and the clip that we showed before. Jonathan Lemire, this shows that this Donald Trump is Jesus shit got more—”

“Oh, Joe, come on,” co-host Mika Brzezinski said.

Watch Scarborough and Brzezinski deny that “Morning Joe” is unfairly partisan toward Trump:

Watch Scarborough’s to a poll showing voters trust Trump:

Lemire said Trump has a “low ceiling” among voters, who he said will not accept these biblical comparisons. He listed a slew of charges he is facing and the current trial under the lawsuit filed by E. Jean Carroll, who is suing the former president for defamation following her sexual assault and rape accusations against him.

He referred to Trump calling himself “the chosen one” to take on the trade war against China in August 2019.

“This is not my trade war, this is a trade war that should have taken place a long time ago, by a lot of other presidents,” Trump once said. “Somebody had to do it. I am the chosen one.” That same year, Trump tweeted a quote from radio host Wayne Allen Root, who claimed that Jewish people in Israel view Trump as “the king of Israel.”
