Scarborough, Brzezinski planning to wed on Nantucket

Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, coanchors of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” are getting married on Nantucket. Well, maybe.

During a chat in D.C. organized by Harvard’s Institute of Politics, the couple, who announced their engagement in the spring, said they’re thinking of tying the knot on the island early next year.

“If Bill Delahunt will promise to go, Mika and I might get married in Nantucket in the spring,” Scarborough said, referencing the former congressman whose district included Nantucket. (Delahunt, who was in the audience, is currently the interim director of the Institute of Politics.)

“But we don’t know because we have people to talk to,” Brzezinski added quickly.


“But we don’t know because we’ve got to make sure our kids are OK with it,” Scarborough said.

Scarborough, a former congressman from Florida, has four children from two previous marriages. Brzezinski, the daughter of the late US diplomat Zbigniew Brzezinski, has two children from her previous marriage.

The couple has been much in the news since President Trump tweeted about them last month. Trump referred to the morning hosts as “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” and “Psycho Joe” and alleged that Brzezinski was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” during a New Year’s Eve visit to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.

The couple then jetted off to spend the July Fourth holiday on Nantucket, where Scarborough has been an occasional visitor for several years. (Brzezinski spent summers in Maine.) They devoted some of their stay to looking at properties on the island. Both are Visiting Fellows at the Institute of Politics this summer and fall.
