In the rarest of shout-outs in the world of serious Sunday morning political programming, NBC MTP Host David Gregory gave Mark McKinnon high praise for his chic, non-bulky herringbone scarf.
Gregory must have had it planned or quickly thought the scarf deserved high praise right on the spot because the compliment flowed right into McKinnon’s introduction on Sunday. Even NBC’s Andrea Mitchell thought the compliment was rather funny and laughed for a good while in reaction to it as she was introduced next.
Gregory: “GOP Strategist, Co-founder of No Labels and former adviser to former President George W. Bush, Sen. John McCain, Mark McKinnon, a very handsome scarf this morning.”
Who doesn’t like a compliment? McKinnon grinned in response.
