New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declared Tuesday as “Morning Joe Day” in New York City to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the MSNBC show.
De Blasio, a Democrat, praised the show’s hosts repeatedly during his time on the show before he gave Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist the proclamation and read what it said.
De Blasio also said that the first time he witnessed a gripping, intelligent conversation on television was when he first watched Morning Joe in January 2008.
“I turn on the TV early in the morning and I saw something I never saw before, which was an intelligent conversation that really gripped me,” de Blasio said.
Afterward, Geist joked that Donny Deutsch wanted a wallet-sized copy of the proclamation for the next time he was arrested to show to the police. Deutsch, who has routinely blasted President Donald Trump and even challenged him to a fight, then preceded to make a joke about what sounded like prostitution.
“By the way, she told me a different story when I met her,” Deutsch said.
