CNBC's Joe Kernen: I'm The Real "Morning Joe"

Posted: Updated:

Arianna co-hosted CNBC's "Squawk Box" Tuesday morning, where co-host Joe Kernen declared that he — and not MSNBC's Joe Scarborough — is the real "Morning Joe."

Kernen teased that he was "the real Morning Joe" off-camera. Arianna then lobbied for the camera-shy "Squawk Box" host to follow-up on-camera, and though he demurred, the following silly exchange occurred, courtesy HuffPost's video editor Patrick Waldo and his Kyte phone:

"We want to start a campaign that this is the real Morning Joe," Arianna said, pointing to Kernen.

"Thank you!" he responded. "Thirteen years versus, what, two years? An upstart! I'm the real thing."
