HUGH HEWITT (HOST): This is a serious question. I tell people, I really believe if Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination, your phone Joe Scarborough  is going to ring and he's going to offer you the Vice Presidential nomination. Will you accept it? 

JOE SCARBOROUGH: I'll take a weekend at Mar-A-Lago. 

HEWITT: No, but really.

SCARBOROUGH: I don't know where you get that from. 

HEWITT: If he asks you. Because it makes sense to me. It makes sense to me on a lot of different levels. 


HEWITT: If he did ask you. It's just a hypothetical. It's just an if. If he asks you, would you say yes? 

SCARBOROUGH: I don't know. I don't think he would ask me. Again, you always get me in trouble with these questions. So let's move on.

HEWITT: No, Joe, pause with me for a second. It makes perfect sense. You're not the first person I've told this to. I've told a number of people. Trump will ask Scarborough to be his running mate. For a whole variety of reasons, especially Florida. And you're not a stranger to Virginia. And you know your way around politics. So just really -- would you say yes? 

SCARBOROUGH: I will say this, and I've said this on the air. And so this is not really any secret at all. I'll do anything that will get -- will stop us from eight more years like the past eight years we've had. 

HEWITT: Amen. And so if that included saying yes, you'd say yes? 

SCARBOROUGH: I think I'd put myself in your category. I would do just about anything to try to get the White House back. 

HEWITT: Alright, that's a yes! I mean, that's a yes Joe.

SCARBOROUGH: That's not a yes

UPDATE: Shortly after appearing on The Hugh Hewitt show, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough tweeted that he was ruling out becoming Donald Trump's Vice Presidential nominee:
