    Ah well, it’s not like he wants to do that, it’s all her fault and she’s practically forcing him. *Headdesk*

    At least he said backhand instead of saying Bitchslap. (Thanks for saving us from that FCC) I feel bad for Mika, I can’t believe she puts up with him, what a tool.

    But what if that someone is Joe Scarborough himself? UNSOLVABLE PARADOX!

    I’m not familiar with this person (too busy watching reality TV!), but it seems to me that he’s not threatening to backhand Mika. It sounds like an aside to the other guy interjected as he’s starting a sentence with her name. So, “Mika — [to other dude] don’t make me backhand you — [resuming his sentence] Mika …”

    Again, I’m not familiar with this person, so I’m not defending him, just wondering if maybe he’s not threatening to slap her. (Not that threatening to slap *anyone* is acceptable, of course.)

    ah, nevermind. I just watched again and he totally was talking to her when he said that.

    Shutting up now..
