“How could you vote for Donald Trump if you see how he behaves, if you see what kind of a human being he has been, how he has reacted to people, and how he has been focusing on cruelty—separating children from their parents,” says Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during this conversation with host Mika Brzezinski about who President Donald Trump’s voters are, just more than a week before the presidential election between incumbent Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

"We live now in an age where on this program and other programs and in print all over America people write newspaper columns and editorials over the year and they say: ‘You know, is this who we really are as Americans?’ Well, it's not who we really are and what's going on right now, but it's who we're slowly becoming: Loud, and brash, and arrogant, and vituperative, damaging each other, attacking each other. That's not what people want. People want this country calmed down, and that ad gets to it in a very powerful way,” says Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle about a new campaign advertisement, narrated by Sam Elliott for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, which premiered during Game 1 of the World Series just two weeks before Election Day. You can see the ad here.

“There are 220,000 Americans who are dead today – dead – and it's not because people are tired of the pandemic. People are tired of the incompetence that the pandemic has been met with and the incompetence stems from Donald Trump's handling of the virus," says Morning Joe contributor Mike Barnicle during this conversation with host Mika Brzezinski following President Trump’s continued public attacks on Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government's top infectious disease expert, and the media, amid the coronavirus outbreak that continues to ravage the country just two weeks from the presidential election.

"The reality is—we all know what the reality is—Donald Trump can only see himself. He does not see the people in the audience. He does not understand their plight. He does not understand the reality that they could obviously get the virus and be in tremendous physical difficulty,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during this Morning Joe conversation with Willie Geist about President Donald Trump’s false claims about a “cure” for coronavirus amid the huge gap in care available to the president and everyday Americans who are faced with growing numbers of infections, costly medical bills and rising unemployment. "There's a huge difference between the two and Donald Trump just doesn't get that difference.”

ICYMI: Watch this Morning Joe conversation between Willie Geist and Mike Barnicle as they discuss President Donald Trump’s chances for re-election amid the coronavirus pandemic with less than three weeks to Election Day. “The facts are grim and grizzly: America is number one—ladies and gentlemen—we're number one in the number of infections from the disease and we're number one in the number of deaths from the disease thus far. The disease is not going away. The virus is not going away. It's been handled terribly, incompetent by guess who? The man standing in front of those rallies, Donald J. Trump, and he can't deal with it…I think he knows he's losing and you have to be really, really out of it not to know that. So, this is what he's left with: A pile of delusion, fantasy, and the hope that what he's looking at out in Johnstown, Pennsylvania…that he can recreate 2016. It doesn't look like he can,” says Barnicle about President Trump’s re-election chances.

“Seven hundred and fifty in taxes. Seventy thousand for your hair, Donald? To take care of your hair. These are elements that people talk about. The depth of it: You know he's a crook. People sort of know that—a lot of people sort of know that. His career as a businessman, that might be revealing to people—that he's a terrible businessman….It’s going to be a slow impact,” says Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle in a conversation with host Willie Geist about whether President Donald Trump’s reelection prospects will be hurt by the recently published bombshell story from The New York Times that chronicles years of Trump’s tax avoidance and financial difficulties, including that he had paid only $750 in federal income taxes the year he was elected president, and no federal income tax in 10 of the previous 15 years.

Morning Joe veteran columnist remembers 9/11 on this 19th anniversary of terrorist attacks with reflections on an event that memorialized two Bedford, Massachusetts, sons lost to war: John Hart, 20 years of age when he was killed in Iraq in 2003, and Travis Desiato, 19, when he was killed in Fallujah in 2004. "The two families – Brian Hart and the Desiatos – they stood there, and they weren't angry, they weren't yelling, they weren't ideological. They had gathered some people and a few members of the press because they wanted people to know that their two boys who had options, other than joining the Army and the Marine Corps, had options—but chose to serve the United States of America. They sacrificed their lives. They weren't ‘losers,’ they weren't ‘suckers,’ that's what this family wanted. And there was more sadness than there was anger and the sadness was over the fact that as Brian Hart – John Hart's father – said, that we are now led by a man like Donald J. Trump,” says Barnicle as he shares with Willie Geist and viewers the story of a memorial service held for two young fallen American soldiers.Tune in to watch this Morning Joe conversation between veteran columnist Mike Barnicle and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) about the economic struggle for millions of Americans amid the coronavirus outbreak and the need for more financial relief since the last federal assistance check that many families received was more than two months ago.

“We can measure the damage the virus has done. We do it with a body count, sadly, approaching 200,000 people, and multiple millions of cases. But we can't really measure the damage that Donald Trump has done to institutions of this country and the damage he's done to the country itself…to the people of this country by his behavior, his verbiage, his rhetoric, his daily rhetoric, his daily lies—as you point out—is almost incalculable,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during this Morning Joe conversation with host Joe Scarborough about the findings in legendary journalist Bob Woodward’s latest book "Rage” which reveals that President Trump admitted he knew weeks before the first confirmed U.S. coronavirus death that the virus was dangerous, airborne, highly contagious and more deadly than even your strenuous flus.
