Below, we have a 10-minute segment from today’s Morning Joe in which co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski address the criticism that they are too friendly with Donald Trump to cover him objectively. To give you a sense of the tenor of the video, Mika shouts about pizza within the first three minutes, and Joe closes it by whispering like a comic book villain.

The segment is ostensibly about Joe Biden when it begins, but the other Joe takes it off the rails almost immediately. You have to feel bad for Michael Steele and the guests who flanked the hosts this morning, who I can only imagine spent much of the 10 minutes staring at their laps, waiting for it to be over.

I don’t want to spoil any more of the drama for you—just watch the clip.
