'Morning Joe' Scarborough wants you to know he never 'partied' with Donald Trump on New Year's

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" namesake Joe Scarborough is not happy that incoming New York Times reporter Sopan Deb and the paper's current reporter, Maggie Haberman, continue to imply that he "partied" with President-elect Donald Trump on New Year's Eve — and is calling on Times editors to take action.

On Sunday, Scarborough lashed out at Deb for saying he "partied" with Trump. Scarborough said he and co-host Mika Brzezinski were at the president-elect's Mar a Lago estate to set up an interview — before any partying began. But on Monday, Haberman tweeted an image of Scarborough, which appears to have been taken during the party.

Deb jabbed Scarborough, tweeting, "This sure looks like an ideal location to have a journalistic meeting about an interview on NYE."

The "Morning Joe" co-host didn't appreciate the comment, and took to Twitter to express his contempt. He was upset that he was referred to as a "reveler" when he made it clear he was there for business. Haberman eventually went on to tweet that attendees told her the photo was taken poolside and that Scarborough was not in formal wear, having left early. But it didn't stop Scarborough from sending a series of tweets on the matter.
