Rick Scott’s Software Locks Up on ‘Morning Joe’

TDS-Logo-BRick Scott caused quite a stir when he appeared on “Morning Joe” Thursday. The Florida Governor was on for about three minutes. Joe Scarborough asked Scott a couple of questions, which Scott just wouldn’t answer.

First Scarborough asked whether he’d be making an endorsement. Scott ran his gibberish.exe program and said … well, we’re not sure what. Then Scarborough asked, “Why wouldn’t you endorse the sitting senator from the state of Florida? That seems like a pretty easy endorsement to me.” Scott said something … again, we can’t tell you what.

Then Scarborough asked Scott whether he would reject a statement Donald Trump made about Islam the previous evening. Scott changed the subject and yet again didn’t answer the question. At which point co-host Mika Brzezinski said, “I know you and Joe are friends and this is kind of awkward. But … can you answer the question or should we scoot?”

Scott, whose smile software seemed to be in overdrive, started talking about how glad he was that the debate was in Florida (yeah, we know…), so Brzezinski just cut him off and went to commercial.

Look, we don’t want to be accused of being luddites here, but as Rick Scott proves, robots just aren’t ready to totally replace humans yet. Especially as political figures.

    This proves “medical” marijuana is a hoax.

    How is that even a hard question to answer?  What has Trump promised Governor Rick Scott?  Inquiring minds want to know!

    I don’t see anything strange about Scott’s position on endorsement.  He’s decided not to endorse anyone, and he didn’t.

    Re Trump’s comment about Muslims, I’m not sure what Trump said, and maybe Scott didn’t know either.  He didn’t want to comment.

    Why is Scott on Mourning with Joe.

    Really. They need to have Valerie Jarrett on.

    Rick Scott can’t open his mouth and he won’t. Good for him. What’s the upside?

    Wow, reading the Daily Shot I was under the impression that Scott had said (or failed to say) something bad. Scott answered about as graciously as a politician could.

    What I wish he said: “Look I signed up for an interview on a respectable news program. I didn’t realize I was coming on to MSNBC. I heard a gutter politics kind of a question, assumed I misheard, and gave it the most dignified gloss I could. I see now you have doubled down. Just know I don’t participate in that kind of stuff.”
