Via Tim Elfrink of Miami New Times:
One of Florida Gov. Rick Scott's most persistent tics is to yell, "Jobs!" over and over whenever he's pressed for an answer to a tough question. This is the same guy, after all, who once pleaded the Fifth more than 70 times in a deposition. He's an Olympic-level non-answerer, and most interviewers are too flustered to call him out on it.
Not so on Morning Joe today. Hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski spent three minutes harassing Scott for a simple answer to this question: Does he agree with his buddy Donald Trump that Muslims "hate" America?
By Scott's fifth mumbled response about jobs, they simply cut his microphone and embarrassingly killed the interview.
“That was weak sniveling political wavering,” Brzezinski later told Scarborough before joking about Scott refusing to back anyone in the Florida primary. “I doubt his endorsement would have any impact anyway. Sorry.”
An "an Olympic-level non-answerer," Tim?
Aren't you being a little harsh? Oh, wait.....
