That same month, co-host Jessica Tarlov took issue with fellow panelist Jesse Watters insinuating that Harris’ past romantic relationship with former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown was “how she got ahead in politics.”
Meanwhile Harris’ boss, President Joe Biden, is reportedly a devoted viewer of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
According to Axios, Biden frequently calls the show’s co-host, Joe Scarborough, the former GOP congressman.
Biden has also consulted with “Morning Joe” panelists and commentators such as former Boston Globe columnist Mike Barnicle, foreign policy wonk Richard Haass and historian Jon Meacham, according to Axios.
Meacham, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of bestsellers on Thomas Jefferson, George H.W. Bush and Andrew Jackson among others, has written speeches for Biden.
MSNBC said it would no longer pay Meacham to be a contributor after he failed to disclose that he wrote Biden’s acceptance speech after he won the election in 2020.
Meacham has still been allowed to appear on MSNBC’s air as a commentator.
Harris is also reportedly fond of “Morning Joe,” according to Axios.
Last month, she and her husband, Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff, hosted Scarborough and his wife-co-host, Mika Brzezinski, for dinner at the official vice presidential residence.
The Post has reached out to Harris seeking comment.
Harris and Brown dated in the mid-1990s when he was a lawmaker in the California State Assembly and she was a prosecutor in the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office.
They ended their relationship in 1995 — a year before Brown became mayor of San Francisco.
While Brown was legally married at the time he and Harris were dating, he had been separated from his wife for about 10 years, according to reports.
In 1994, Brown, who was speaker of the Assembly at the time, appointed his then-girlfriend Harris to two state commissions — one of which paid her a salary of $72,000, according to the Los Angeles Times.
In November, Judge Jeanine Pirro said on “The Five” that Harris lacks “political savvy” to reverse her sagging poll numbers.
“That shows how inept she is when she’s supposed to be so political,” Pirro said during the Nov. 17 broadcast.
Fox News, which shares common ownership with The Post, has declined to comment.
