MSNBC's Joe Scarborough is publicly apologizing to Sen. Ted Cruz, Vice President Mike Pence and his own Twitter audience because he had tweeted a deceptive Jimmy Kimmel video about the vice president and engaged in a Twitter battle with the Texas Republican legislator.

"About last night: I gotta work on some things myself," Scarborough tweeted. "I feel really bad about retweeting the Jimmy Kimmel video. I feel worse about being provoked. I apologize again to Mike Pence, to my Twitter followers, and to Ted. I’ve got to do better."

it would appear that @vp was joking about carrying empty boxes for a staged publicity stunt. The full video reveals that he was carrying full boxes for a staged publicity stunt. My apologies. I know how dearly this administration values truth. https://t.co/hI9cO4lxcX— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) May 8, 2020

NBC is corrupt. They don’t care that you know it. https://t.co/gQ213JzyOj— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) May 8, 2020
Hmm. When you’re on the defensive for being dishonest & corrupt, perhaps best not to forward fraudulent stories from Jimmy Kimmel (that he’s admitted were false)? You are claiming to be a journalist, after all.... https://t.co/tYsgKJGxpR— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) May 8, 2020
Ted, when I make a mistake I admit it. You remain mired in shame because you kowtow to a man who called your wife ugly and said your daddy assassinated JFK. Me messing up a tweet or two will never erase the shame you carry every day of your life. https://t.co/eJa4qWzqA2— Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC) May 8, 2020
Joe, you chased after Trump for 2 years like a teenage girl throwing her panties at the latest boy band; now you pretend to be this indignant paragon of virtue outraged at everything he says & does. All to get invited to DC cocktail parties & thrill the 13 people watching MSNBC. https://t.co/XG9P0Bwrbp— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) May 8, 2020
