MTP adds Scarborough as contributor

Joe Scarborough is now a contributor for Meet the Press and senior political analyst with NBC News. But have no fear; Scarborough will retain his role as co-host of Morning Joe on MSNBC. A month ago, there was some speculation he might be under consideration for the host of MTP.

"If @JoeNBC is not in running for MTP chair, that'd be a big miss. Morning he and @morningmika hosted knockout show, IMHO," tweeted Michael Barbaro with the New York Times.

That role, of course, went to Chuck Todd instead, who started yesterday and had Scarborough on the show.

"I was really impressed by @chucktodd's debut in @meetthepress. A great interview with the president sure to make news. Congrats, Chuck!" Scarborough shared.

But The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg demanded to know one thing about this appearance: "Why is @JoeNBC covering-up his tattoos?"

"The full nude of Taft on my arm clashed with the tie I was wearing," Scarborough replied, adding the hashtag #fashionwatch.
