TVNewser: Just after 6am, on “Morning Joe” this morning, Joe, Mika and guest John Heilemann were talking about yesterday’sNew York Times article about “the three amigos” Senators Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Joe Lieberman and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who have bonded over the last decade through international travel putting themselves at the center of the foreign policy debate at home.
With Lieberman leaving the Senate, McCain and Graham have brought in another “amigo” SenatorSen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH). That prompted Heilemann to make a bad joke, at the expense of Graham:
That drew hysterical laughter from Scarborough who had to turn his chair around. Mika Brzezinski took over and brought in Andrea Mitchell as Scarborough and Heilemann composed themselves.
The line was edited out of a re-air at 8amET.
