Summary: ” “If somebody says ‘I hate you,’ I don’t care,” Joe continued. “It was by telephone that we talked!” Griffin insisted theatrically from an audience that included not only such Morning Joe regulars as Willie Geist, Republican analyst Elise Jordan, Ayman Mohyeldin, Today show correspondent Ronan Farrow, Daily Beast columnist Mike Barnicle and advertising guru Donny Deutsch but also a couple of Fox Newsers—namely Shepard Smith and Eric Bolling—who’d crossed enemy lines to be on hand. And so, having likened his latest venture to a commercial-airline catastrophe, the namesake of MSNBC’s political-insidery Morning Joe program launched Mystified, his inaugural rock ’n’ roll EP, with an album-release party, and live concert by the nine-piece Joe Scarborough Band at the Cutting Room—and, not coincidentally, a bit of Regis-and-Joy shtick that defines the Joe and Mika Show. “We’re gonna fly through the air it right into the fucking cliff,” Joe Scarborough promised Thursday night, prompting his television wife, and offscreen bride-to-be, Mika Brzezinski, to murmur a cringing, giggling “OK!”—as in, Please for the love of God, observe your tongue. “I’m a huge fan of MSNBC,” Noth told The Daily Beast—after Mika had polled the crowd, for Republicans (a smattering of upraised hands) and Democrats (a loud convulsive cheer). (The parents of multiple children, and recently divorced from other spouses, they became officially engaged at the commencement of May during a weekend jaunt to Cap d’Antibes—Mika wore the diamond sparkler to prove it—but, while they might’ve booked the band, they haven’t, yet set the wedding date.) After the show, Joe took Mika by the hand and led her to the Cutting Room’s basement green room, just where the couple, at once keyed up and drained by all of the excitement, recuperated on the well-worn sofas in conjunction with Mika’s college-age daughter Emelie and her boyfriend, Graham. It’s Joe’s night.” And Eric Bolling, who’d been dancing with Mika, and schmoozing with Phil Griffin (“It’s an amazing time,” they told each and every other), explained his presence by saying,  “I’m a fan. And what exists in reality is, accordingly beyond the pale that, of course, you’re outraged.” Shep Smith, who joked that he’d been “manning the tambourine in the little section over with to the left,” parried a question about Fox News by saying, “I don’t want to talk about work. “Joe lost his voice,” the platinum-blond, blue-jeaned Mika, acting as emcee, told the sweaty, standing-room-only crowd from the exact same exact stage on which Sheryl Crow, and Lady Gaga once belted out tunes in the storied Manhattan venue. President Donald Trump for once, hadn’t dominated the discussion the way he has done every single day on Morning Joe for the past two years, initially as a personal friend (whose communications talents Joe, and Mika continually praised during such time GOP nomination race) and more recently as a malign and spiteful blot on the body politic. Although it was well-nigh not possible to distinguish Scarborough’s lyrics in the noisy, sweaty room, just where fifty-something revelers danced near the stage, some of his titles included “LA Song,” “Girl Like That,” “Let’s Fall in Love,” and “Superbad.” It helped, of course, that Joe is well-paid enough by MSNBC (a rumored $8 million a year) that he’s able to hire accomplished backup singers, in conjunction with a lead guitarist, percussionist, keyboardist, saxophonist and trumpet player to produce something akin to Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound.”
