Just after 6am, on “Morning Joe” this morning, Joe, Mika and guest John Heilemann were talking about yesterday’s New York Times article about “the three amigos” Senators John McCain, Joe Lieberman, and Lindsey Graham….
With Lieberman leaving the Senate, McCain and Graham have brought in another “amigo” Senator Kelly Ayotte. That prompted Heilemann to make a bad joke, at the expense of Graham:
Heilemann: They need a third amigo at all times. So now they have — now two of the three are women — now at least one of the three are women.
The line was edited out of a re-air at 8amET.
