Joe Scarborough Laughs Off Christie Administration’s Attack On MSNBC

By

Joe Scarborough had nothing but laughter Monday when asked about recent pushback from Gov. Chris Christie’s administration over a negative story about the New Jersey governor. Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer alleged on Saturday on MSNBC’s “Up With Steve Kornacki” that Christie withheld Sandy relief funds to force her to approve a certain development plan — a charge the governor’s office has denied.

On Monday, “Today” host Savannah Guthrie asked the “Morning Joe” host about a statement issued by a Christie spokesperson that “MSNBC is a partisan network that has been openly hostile to Gov. Christie and almost gleeful in their efforts attacking him.” But Scarborough, who has been open about his close friendship with the governor, had already begun laughing before Guthrie could finish.

“They’re obviously not talking about ‘Morning Joe,'” he said. “John Heilemann calls our show ‘Good Morning Trenton’ because we love Chris Christie so much around here.”
