Joe Scarborough completely lost it on Wednesday's "Morning Joe," laughing so much at an awkward encounter between Newt Gingrich and an Iowa man that he collapsed into tears.

Gingrich has been having a rough time ever since he harshly criticized Rep. Paul Ryan's budget plan on Sunday's "Meet The Press." While in Iowa, a voter told him he was an "embarrassment" to the GOP and should drop out. All of this was captured on tape, and, after watching it, Scarborough laughed so hard that he essentially lost the ability to speak. Mika Brzezinski wound up holding a piece of paper in front of his face while he wiped the tears out of his eyes.
