Listen in on this Morning Joe conversation with Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, Willie Geist and Mike Barnicle as they discuss President Donald Trump’s campaign continuing view that presidential candidate Joe Biden is the “biggest threat” to him in a general election. “The one thing about the Biden campaign with regard to Donald Trump and other campaigns….What you hear is the spectacular data gathering operation of the Trump campaign. Brad Parscale, genius at data, and the data clearly shows Joe Biden, `uh-oh, is a problem' for Donald Trump,” says Barnicle about the polling conducted by President Trump's campaign manager Brad Parscale.

The Morning Joe panel assesses the possible reasons behind Sen. Elizabeth Warren's continued attacks on former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg during Democratic presidential debates instead of directing her energy toward “the unstoppable freight train” thus far in the race for the Democratic nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders. “She is a skillful, highly disciplined debater. Maybe the best debater certainly on that stage. Yet in this case, now twice with Mike Bloomberg to her right, both times her discipline disappears,” says Barnicle. Hear more of the discussion here. Only on MSNBC.

Listen in on this Morning Joe review of the Democratic presidential debate in South Carolina, where the presidential candidates eagerly savaged one another, seeking an advantage before the pivotal South Carolina primary. “I almost clicked over to a Cactus League baseball game given the chaos at the beginning of that debate when…I couldn't understand who was saying what—they were all yelling at one another,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle. The panel’s overall assessment: Joe Biden had his best night of all the debates, Elizabeth Warren’s attacks on Mike Bloomberg, Bloomberg’s highlight regarding what he did in New York City about the Coronavirus and Bernie Sanders appearing “rattled” for the first time.

The Morning Joe panel discusses presidential candidate and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ clear economic message that resonates with voters. “If you listen to Bernie Sanders at any one of his rallies…he gets into something that I have not heard the other candidates get into: It's the paycheck-to-paycheck economy. The take-home pay of people who know when they look at their paycheck, they hear all the talk about the roaring stock market—except for yesterday—and they know that they're not doing as well as they did in 1995, on a per capita basis. Bernie talks about that,” says Barnicle ahead of the Democratic presidential debate in South Carolina.

Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski talk with John Heilemann and Mike Barnicle about presidential candidate and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders doubling down on his praise of Fidel Castro, the former Cuban dictator. “Bernie Sanders on his feet is a spectacular candidate. He's been doing this for 40 years. He knows how to take a turn. He knows how to deflect. He’s good on his feet—better than almost all the other candidates involved, and he's still doing it,” says Barnicle about the prowess of Sanders as a presidential candidate.

And what happened with Hosni Mubarak, when he was arrested and deposed, I mean that was the beginning, the kernels, of the unrest in the Middle East in Egypt right there,” says Barnicle.

“The thing that's most on trial is the United States Senate. How can these senators who seemingly are on the fence or in Donald Trump's pocket hear evidence such as this and continue the charade that nothing happened?” asks Morning Joe contributor Mike Barnicle of BBC World News America Washington anchor Katty Kay during a conversation about Republican senators’ stance in light of MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s bombshell interview with Lev Parnas, in which the former Rudy Giuliani colleague offered damning insight into the ongoing investigation concerning the Trump administration’s dealings with Ukraine.

“Politics is still a people business. And guess what, Mike Bloomberg has a ton of money. Tom Steyer has a ton of money. People like Joe Biden. They see him in New Hampshire. They see him in Iowa in small forums, and people – it's a people business,” says Morning Joe contributor Mike Barnicle about Democratic presidential hopefuls Michael Bloomberg, Tom Steyer and Joe Biden during a conversation with Joe Scarborough and Axios' Jim Vandehei about the phenomenon of money in American politics.

The Morning Joe panel shifts the conversation to the “complexities" of health care to talk about what matters most to Americans around the country: “The cost of health care, the access to health care, and the uncertainty of getting good health care,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle. “One of the unfortunate aspects of American health care is nobody ever asks the cost of anything...nobody ever goes in and says, ‘well how much is this going to cost me?'” Hear more on the topic from Willie Geist, Al Sharpton, Jonathan Lemire and Susan Del Percio.

The Morning Joe panels puts front and center the country’s need for infrastructure legislation, which has yet to been addressed in a meaningful way by President Donald Trump or the Democratic presidential candidates at primary debates. “People go to work every day. They drive every day over roads that are terrible, bridges that are crumbling. The infrastructure of this country badly needs revitalization and, yet, it hasn't happened,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle. Hear what The New York Times columnist Bret Stephens, Republican strategist Susan Del Percio and civil rights activists Rev. Al Sharpton have to say about this “tangible” issue that could provide jobs but is not being addressed by the current Administration.

“In addition to the word ‘durability'—underline it next to Bernie Sanders—you can also underline ‘consistency' and you can underline ‘predictability' and 'loyalty. All of his followers, they have been with him for many, many years. They didn't just sort of jump on the Sanders train a few months ago. They have been with him for many, many years, even prior to his announce run for the presidency,” says veteran columnist and Morning Joe contributor Mike Barnicle about the supporters of Sen. Sanders as the panel discusses new reports that Democratic officials, political operatives and pundits are reconsidering Sen. Bernie Sanders’ chances to win the Democratic nomination in the 2020 presidential race. Hear more of the conversation now.

“In 2016, this country was attacked by a sworn enemy of the United State: Russia. They subverted our electoral process. They are doing it today as we speak—and I am not one of these guys with a big library in my head of things that were said by public people—but I don't think the President of the United States has ever specifically addressed what we're doing to counter this attack that is ongoing right now. So, we have a country, our country, still under attack by a sworn enemy, and I have yet really to hear the President of the United States saying, ‘Hey, this is what we're going to do,’” says Barnicle about President Donald Trump’s lack of protecting the US election process.
