The Daily Show Pays Homage To Morning Joe: They ‘Starf*ck Like Nobody’s Business’ (VIDEO)

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” is so much more than just a cable news show — it’s a family, as “The Daily Show” correspondent Samantha Bee demonstrated Wednesday night.

Bee gave the morning show the performance art treatment, showing how “Daddy Joe” Scarborough and “Mother Mika” Brzezinski gave birth to a cast of “boy pundits” who naturally always agree with their “dad” at Brzezinski’s expense.

Then she turned her attention to the co-hosts’ bevy of high-powered friends, from former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg to Bono and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), because “if they’re not friends with Joe and Mika, they don’t exist! They’re nothing!”

Of course, those famous friends are part of the “Morning Joe” family, too — so when the media tried to pin the scandal around the George Washington Bridge lane closures on “Uncle Chris” Christie, Bee said, the family rallied behind him.

“Oh sure, my ‘Morning Joe’ family may fight and bicker and starf*ck like nobody’s business, but when the chips are down for one of our powerful friends, we pull together to attack anyone who questions them,” she said. “Because that’s what morning news shows do.”
