President Obama praised "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski at Joe Scarborough's expense on Friday.
Politico reports that he was speaking at the White House forum on women and the economy, where Brzezinski moderated a panel. Obama thanked her for "proving that on your show every day women truly are the better half," to the applause of audience members.
Scarborough was sitting in the audience. "Joe's not denying it," Obama joked.
