MARTHA MACCALLUM (HOST): I just want to pull up a tweet that you put out earlier today because it struck me as quite interesting. It's a photo of Teddy Kennedy. He's got the neck brace on after Chappaquiddick. And it's interesting because the tweet underneath it from Sarah Longwell -- we can't really see that -- but basically she's talking about the fact that she's horrified that Republicans can support Herschel Walker given the revelations from this woman who says that he paid for her abortion. She's basically saying that Republicans have no scruples, it's appalling that they could back this person. And then you put that photo up which is an interesting reminder.

JOE CONCHA (GUEST): That was after Chappaquiddick, right, and what happened there and the horrible death in a car accident that Teddy Kennedy walked away from. And then he was elected for four decades after that. So as far as voting for somebody because you think they're morally better than their opponent, I'm sorry, people will vote sometimes regardless of moral scruples and Raphael Warnock has a history himself that is nothing to be proud of. So I just found that interesting that that picture with Teddy Kennedy and that neck brace probably wasn't needed according to the movie.

MACCALLUM: You have to apply the same standards to both sides and be careful where you cast stones. Sometimes they come back at you. It is interesting. Joe, thank you very much.
