The Hill majorly misquoted “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough in a Tuesday article, prompting a tweet from the maligned MSNBC anchor.
The Hill claimed that Scarborough said that President Donald Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore were “bringing out” his “inner liberal.”

However, not only was the quote actually from a Bill Kristol tweet, but it was read aloud by Mika Brzezinski — not Scarborough — before a commercial break on “Morning Joe.”
Scarborough responded to the error, clarifying that the quote came from a Kristol tweet being read during a teaser.
Umm, this was a tease where we were quoting a Bill Kristol tweet. Despite the stupidity of my former party, there is no inner liberal inside of me. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
My party just went batshit crazy. https://t.co/ZaH8vl9SEs
