Willie Geist Is Not Proud of His Morning Joe Beverages


I’m not a coffee drinker, so my drink is kind of like a girlie skim chai latte. I’m not proud of it, but it’s really good. Whatever those big, tall sizes are. I refuse to use the language. The XL. That’s 5:30, when I have to be on the set of the show. Then around 7:15 it gets more girlie. I have some type of smoothie situation. Strawberry. Or sometimes it’s a mango smoothie. I love a woman’s beverage, what am I gonna say?” —Willie Geist, panel member on MSNBC’s Starbucks-sponsored Morning Joe, at Tina Brown’s party last night for ‘bucks CEO Howard Schultz’s new book, Onward: How Starbucks Fought for Its Life Without Losing Its Soul.
