Whoops! Joe Scarborough Caught Eating In Opening Of "Race For The White House"

You can take him out of his trademark pullover and dress him up in a shirt and tie, but you can't take the casual morning feel out of "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough. In the opening segment of the premiere of "Race for the White House" — David Gregory's new show and the canceled Tucker Carlson's replacement in the 6 p.m. time slot — Joe tried to sneak a bite while Rachel Maddow spoke — and he got caught.
