Former Republican congressman turned TV guy Joe Scarborough will host both of MSNBC’s town halls this week, putting him in charge of moderating Donald Trump, the man he may or may not have had a late-night hotel sesh with last week.

It’s an interesting choice, given recent allegations that MSNBC staffers are feeling “widespread discomfort” with Trump’s and Scarborough’s are-they-or-aren’t-they connection.

Scarborough will be joined at the podium by Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, who also may or may not have been in Donald Trump’s hotel room.

John Kasich and Jeb Bush will also be in attendance.
