Jonathan Capehart and the Case of the Turgid Tie Knot

A man's tie knot is not supposed to pulsate wildly. One is to master a classic knot and let the fabrics speak for him opposed to letting the knot itself take center stage. If an individual cannot do this, then it is our recommendation to wear a cravat. In the case of Master Capehart, his tie knot has assumed many personalities throughout the last week and it's becoming somewhat distracting. Could this be a case of fashion fickleness or is he merely being uppity or dare we say, elitist in the face of Scarborough who seems challenged by a clip-on?

Jonathan is just a well dressed guy and deals with his knots based on the thickness of the tie. Joe is just a straight guy who couldn't find a Bloomingdales if his life depended on it.

Does anyone remember when Tiki was still in the NFL and would appear on Tuesdays on Fox? I think they billed it as Tiki Tuesday. Anyway, Capehart has nothing on those knots Tiki used to brandish. I couldn't hear a word he was saying, what for being hypnotized by that giant knot.
