‘So this is what happens when poor white trash wins the lottery’: Bama fan Joe Scarborough talks with Auburn fan Robert Gibbs on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’

We’re trying to plow through the backlog of clips of talking heads exploding over the Iron Bowl. Here’s one we forgot: Monday’s episode of Morning Joe, which of course had Auburn native Robert Gibbs, who on like they do pretty much every time there’s an opportunity for some Iron Bowl trash talk between the former press secretary for Barack Obama and co-host Joe Scarborough, who loves Alabama football like Satan loves sin.

Gibbs, who was at the game with his 10-year-old son, wore an Auburn shirt as always.

Scarborough’s first comment: “So this is what happens when poor white trash wins the lottery.”

His co-host, Mika Brzezinski, was just as professional: “Oh my God, that is the ugliest shirt ever… you look like a disturbed person that may touch me inappropriately.”
