Joe Scarborough Returns To "Morning Joe"

Joe Scarborough has been absent from "Morning Joe" for the last few weeks as he tended to his wife's pregnancy at home in Florida, but he made his triumphant return to his eponymous program Wednesday morning. "It aint Morning Mika, baby" he reminded co-host Mika Brzezinski, who's taken the lead on the program in his absence.

As for his wife's pregnancy, Joe didn't give many details but made the following statement:

"It's good to be back! It's been a long time and just want to thank everybody for their thoughts and prayers. We're going through some medical issues but everything seems to have leveled out for now. No, not my medical issues. Not mine.
