On Wednesday, the Morning Joe crew discussed the GOP senators who have been critical of UN Ambassador Susan Rice. Specifically, the three senators who met with Rice on Tuesday — John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Kelly Ayotte. Amid the discussion, New York Magazine‘s John Heilemann made a joke at the expense of Graham. During the re-airing at 8 a.m., that remark was edited out.
Since Sen. Joe Lieberman is on his way out, Graham and McCain seem to have brought in a third “amigo,” Joe Scarborough said, referring to Ayotte. Heilemann chimed in:
“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.”
That prompted Scarborough to turn around his chair in a fit of laughter, as Heilemann, too, could not keep a straight face. When the segment re-aired, the remark was nowhere to be found.
