“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski spent some down time on her 51st birthday in the company of some of her pets — (and her soon-to-be husband Joe Scarborough).
In a Facebook live video Wednesday — likely from Scarborough’s Connecticut home — the anchor treated viewers to a glimpse inside their menagerie of beasts, which is known to include dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits, pigs and an occasional smattering of children.
Toward the end of the Facebook live, an unnamed swine strode up to Brzezinski and the anchor proceeded to massage the animal for her rapt viewers.
“Hi beautiful. Do you want a tummy rub?” Brzezinski asked to the oinking animal.
It seems the answer was “yes” as the pig promptly laid over to receive the rub.
“Sorry, Joe, I’m busy,” said Brzezinski as Scarborough sat off camera.
“This is like The Ritz. Having a massage,” said Mika. “I can’t imagine anybody would stay on to watch this,” she added toward the end of the video.
The Brzezinski pig appears to be a favorite in the household and routinely makes appearances in her social media feeds. You can watch a video of the pig sparring with Scarborough’s dog Hobson or Brzezinski cooking — hopefully something vegetarian — with him here.
