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.

The Hill article was published at 10:09 AM this morning and has not been corrected or taken down by the time of this article’s publication.
