This morning on Morning Joe, co hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough got into an uncomfortable back and forth over the motives of Ted Cruz as they relate to the government shutdown and the Affordable Care Act. “It shows how much they hate him [Obama] and don’t love the country, and that’s what’s scary about this,” Brzezinski said. “Are you saying they don’t love the country?” Scarborough replied. “Are you saying they do?” Brzezinski asked. “Ted Cruz and his group loves the country? We disagree. I think he loves his prospects to develop a database more than he loves the country.” That portion of the discussion can be found at the 8:55 mark in the clip below.
