Well, this is somewhat amusing.
On Thursday’s “Morning Joe,” Joe Scarborough attempted to hold the hand of his fiancée and co-host Mika Brzezinski only to be rebuffed on air in what was an embarrassing moment:

Here’s a rough transcript of the weird exchange:
Mika: “We did lots of fighting over issues, so it should be a good show today.”
Joe: “No we did not.”
Mika: “Oh yeah we did.”
Joe then attempts to grab Mika’s hand but she rebuffs him.
Mika: “Don’t do that. Not on the air! Not on the air! What are you doing? It’s 6:03.”
Joe: “Willie, can I ask you a question? … We’ve been engaged now for like 13 years. You think by now I should be able to hold her hand at this point in the engagement with her consent?”
Mika: “If you’ll be quiet I’ll hold your hand.”
Joe: “I don’t know what that means.”
