When you’re raised in the South, you basically are taught to plan for a 300-person wedding the same time you learn the alphabet. Well, that and to pledge for only the best fraternities and sororities. Seeing that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinksi are the biggest frat-and-sorority combo on morning TV, when they announced they were engaged, I assumed they would have had a lavish wedding in the National Cathedral that ended with an 800-person congregation walking over to the White House to douse it in holy water and rid it of their former BFF-turned-enemy Donald Trump. Alas, those two went the opposite-ish route and got married with just a few of their friends. Don’t worry, they still made digs at Trump by doing it in front of the the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights – and had Trump foe Rep. Elijah Cummings officiate the whole thing.
Vanity Fair had the exclusive, and I immediately went to the juicy bits that say “Her daughters chose not to be at the actual ceremony but wanted to support their mom.” Some might take that as them not getting along with Joe, and who can blame them? Do you see that bouffant he wears on Morning Joe each day? He’s clearly using up all the hairspray in their house!
Since Joe and Mika are the “sort of Brangelina of the political-media in-crowd” – yes, the reporter clearly is friends with those two – they had to keep everything hush-hush lest the president tweet out that he saw Mika getting ready for her wedding day with some plastic surgery. That’s why they had it in a place that isn’t known for hosting weddings and on a Saturday during a holiday week. So pretty much everyone – including the Trump – wasn’t even in town.
Mika wore a Milly dress, and Joe wore a suit he already wears on TV, trying to be the Duchess Catherine of MSNBC! He did say the shirt was “Robert Mueller white.” Ooo! Burn!
The Morning Joe co-hosts made it official in front of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. “It makes sense now more than ever, given what we stand for as a couple,” says Mika Brzezinski, “and what we’re worried about as a country” https://t.co/BEK6QlSpOk

The most exciting parts for me were that Mika’s daughter Millie’s dog, Cali, wore a Tiffany-colored leash (easily the night’s Best Dressed winner), which was Mika’s something blue. I’m pretty sure you can’t just point to things in the same room as your something blue, but what does my unmarried ass know? Mika also says she’s changing her last name, which is kind of funny because the first part of the article faps to how they keep their romance a secret. That’s news to me and Saturday Night Live:
The wedding guest list was limited to a close group of friends and family, and even the people working the party weren’t told who the wedding was for until a few hours before. I feel like most of the people working that party still have no clue who the middle-aged bride and groom were even after the names were revealed.
