After Page Six unveiled that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski got engaged this weekend, President Donald Trump explicitly said he wanted to marry them.
The couple talked about marriage back in January at the White House, and Donald Trump and his senior advisor Jared Kushner were there.
The 54-year-old Scarborough informed Vanity Fair that Trump suggested for them to get married at Mar-a-Lago or the White House.
He said, “That’s when Jared interrupted and said, ‘Hey, you know what? I’ve got my license. I could marry you,’”
Not to be surpassed, he alleges that Trump snapped back, “‘Why would you marry them? They could have the president of the United States marry them.’”
But unluckily for Trump, 54-year-old Brzezinski doesn’t like the idea. She said,
“The White House that I grew up in was an amazing place. If it weren’t Trump, it might be something to think about.
The mental picture is just fascinating, but the reality is just … no. No, no, no, no, no.”
Mika continued, “Halfway up the hill, he said he needed to sit down. We hadn’t been feeling well, so I thought, Oh, poor guy, he can’t make it up the hill.
His glasses were fogging up he was so nervous. I kept thinking he really must not have felt well,” she added.
“When I saw him on one knee, I started laughing nervously, almost hysterically. And then he asked, and I said, ‘Absolutely.’”
Scarborough gave Brzezinski an oval-cut diamond and platinum ring, which he said “looked like it was meant to be” on her finger.
Brzezinski admitted that she expected that Scarborough was about to ask her the question when they booked a hotel for their vacation, bus one day after they arrived, she lost all of her suspicions.
She said, “He can’t keep a secret. He just can’t.
He always blurts stuff out.” Scarborough agreed, “It would have been more like me to tell her on the way over.”
Joe Scarborough continued, “It’s the one part of my life that unfortunately I haven’t gotten right in the past. I thought after the last time that I would never, ever do this again in a million years.
Then it occurred to me that with us working together and being live on the air every day for three hours that we were forced, no matter what disagreements we had, what misunderstandings we had, to work through it and get right with each other by 5:59 a.m.”
He added, “I was talking to a friend a couple months ago, asking if this was stupid. ‘Am I making a terrible mistake?’
They said that no, that we had extraordinary training on getting through difficult times together, and it’ll only make us a stronger couple and stronger in married life.”
The “Morning Joe” co-hosts aren’t worried with what MSNBC audiences will think of this, either, Scarborough noted.
“We want to spend the rest of our lives together and that’s more important than what management will think and critics will think or anybody else.”
