Joe Scarborough: "Herman Cain went on PBS last night and talked to Judy Woodruff. We don’t know what happened 12 years ago [on the sexual harassment allegations], but we certainly know what happened last night. Last night, you had the front runner in the Republican field not knowing the 'little-known' fact that China had a nuclear weapon for half a century…
Herman Cain said they were ‘trying to develop nuclear capability.’
I’m not being facetious… David Gregory, do you know a serious player in Washington D.C. that is not aware of the fact that China got nuclear weapons almost 50 years ago?"
David Gregory: "We’ve been at war for a decade… dealing with the aftermath of 9/11… fluency in foreign affairs and national security should be the price of admission."
[later in the segment]Scarborough: "He may be a brilliant guy when it comes to business, but when it comes to foreign policy, he is an idiot."Michael Steele: "That’s great Joe, but you’re putting a New York-spin on things."Scarborough: "A New York spin!? That’s an insult to Kansas!"
