Mika Brzezinski explains where Joe Scarborough has been the past two weeks

Viewers have been wondering where Joe Scarborough has been for the past two weeks.

The co-host of “Morning Joe” is married to co-host Mika Brzezinski, who addressed Scarborough’s absence on Twitter July 15, 2020.

She revealed that she “told him to” take a break from the daily grind of producing and hosting multi-hour morning show.

Brzezinski hints that it’s a bit challenging for Scarborough to sit things out during such a pivotal time in America and American politics, but notes he needed a break after creating the show in 2007.

Even before the pandemic forced many broadcasters to home TV studios, Scarborough and Brzezinski often host the show from a studio setup in their Florida home.

Scarborough made news when he changed his residency from Connecticut to Florida, saving him millions in income tax annually. However, in order to qualify as a Florida resident, he must live there at least 183 days a year.
