Monday’s Morning Joe on MSNBC was enthralled with two events on Sunday, linking the joy of Tiger Woods’ victory at the Masters golf tournament with Democrat Pete Buttigieg’s presidential announcement, recounting how they spent Sunday flipping channels to bask in both.

The show opened with a montage of Woods talking about his win interspersed with clips of Buttigieg’s announcement. “Wow! Happy Monday,” co-host Mika Brzezinski then exclaimed.

“America stopped,” co-host Joe Scarborough claimed, “everybody stopped, they were watching Tiger and they watched Mayor Pete. And, I don’t know, ten years from now, 20 years from now, just may be a day that a lot of people look back on and see history being made.” Brzezinski relayed how “we were shuffling my mom from room to room. ‘Let’s go watch Tiger, okay let’s go back for Mayor Pete.’” 

With “Sunday Split Screen: Tiger’s Comeback; Pete’s Kickoff” as the screen heading, regular contributor Mike Barnicle soon swooned: “In one Sunday spring afternoon in Augusta, Georgia and in South Bend, Indiana, you had two stories that combined to truly represent part of what this country is all about....It was a remarkable day and two remarkable events.”
