Fox News’ “The Five” devoted an entire segment to playfully making fun of “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough on Wednesday night.
In response to Scarborough recently announcing on “The Late Show” that he’s leaving the Republican party to become an Independent, “The Five” host Greg Gutfeld offered viewers a glimpse of the GOP reaction — but the video was actually sports fans going wild with celebration.
“Talk about draining the swamp. This guy was so inside he sneezes polliwogs,” Gutfeld said.
Gutfeld then referred to Scarborough as “Morning Joke” and “Weird Matt Perry” as his co-hosts laughed.
The Fox News personality then mocked Scarborough for flip-flopping on his feelings about Donald Trump. “The Five” co-host Dana Perino was next to chime in, noting that Stephen Colbert probably set Scarborough up for his big announcement.
“They probably were able to get booked on Colbert saying they were going to make this big news,” Perino said.
Co-host Jesse Watters then said he has nothing against Scarborough but they only covered the story because Gutfeld had such a funny monologue.
“I don’t think anybody cares in the Republican party that he’s leaving,” Watters said. “I think MSNBC loses a talking point now. When you say, ‘There are no conservatives on MSNBC,’ you can’t say, ‘Joe Scarborough!’”
