It can now be revealed: White House spokesman Robert Gibbs not only has the best collection of pastel neckties, but he keeps a set in his White House office in case his mood changes. We know thanks to the stars of MSNBC's Morning Joe , who got a quickie tour of the White House press office and Gibbs's haunt. In this video provided by MSNBC, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski take a live tour with Gibbs through the lower press office and upper press office, even trying to sneak into the Oval Office. Along the way, they pick up bits of history and color. For one: President Obama gave Gibbs's 5-year-old son models of Air Force One and Marine One. We learn that several former spokesmen gave Gibbs hours of advice, a key tip being: Don't take questions personally. We also see his closet and his ties, and he reveals the grueling schedule that starts at 6 a.m. every day.
