Here’s an unexpected sentence: Joe Scarborough has released a music video. But as expected, it’s anti-Trump, anti-gun, and anti-America — a propagandist masterpiece, really.
Joined by his fiancée and Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, Scarborough and his bride-to-be are in a small room watching images flash at high rates on a screen in front of them.

The song is called “Mystified” and it debuted on Friday. He has posted the song and video of him singing and “rocking out” on the guitar to Facebook.
Lyrics to the synth-pop anthem include:
I – I’ve been looking inside and I’ve been mystified by what I saw
I – I’ve been looking inside and I’ve been horrified by who I saw
