Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY), member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, during a Morning Joe conversation with contributor Mike Barnicle about whether House Republicans believe the New York Times and Washington Post’s reports that reveal Russia has paid bounties to Taliban-linked fighters to kill U.S. troops and coalition forces in Afghanistan as President Donald J.

“Russia declared war on the United States of America nearly four years ago when they decided to attack our electoral system. They are still declaring war on America, except this time they are paying hundreds and thousands of dollars to the Taliban in Afghanistan – our enemy – to kill our Marines, our soldiers, our people, our young men. That's going on in front of us,” said Morning Joe veteran columnist and contributor Mike Barnicle during this discussion with Joe Scarborough about President Donald J. Trump’s refusal to confront and deal with bombshell reports of Russia paying bounties to Taliban-linked fighters to kill U.S. troops and coalition forces in Afghanistan. Join the conversation here.

Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough and Mike Barnicle discuss President Donald J. Trump’s mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic as cases of COVID-19 continue to spike across the nation with infection rates up in most states. "I feel terrible for anyone who contracts the virus. But there's another virus that the whole country is dealing with on a daily basis—and it's the virus of Donald Trump's incompetence, his personality and his lack of character in terms of leading this critical, critical medical emergency that we're still in the middle of,” says Barnicle about Trump in light of his continuing to tell Americans that the virus is going to disappear, that it’s under control.

“You can take everything that's happened in the Trump Administration thus far, and especially over the last six months, and neatly sum it up with one phrase, I think – `dereliction of duty’,” says Morning Joe contributor Mike Barnicle during a conversation with host Joe Scarborough about President Donald Trump’s shortcomings throughout his tenure in office, including his mismanagement of the coronavirus outbreak in America. "When Donald Trump stood on the podium in front of the capitol on January 20th, 2017, he took an oath, and the oath was to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. He has done neither—he hasn't protected us. He hasn't defended us.” Watch more of the conversation here.

Morning Joe’s veteran columnist Mike Barnicle reflects on an Associated Press photograph by Patrick Semansky of President Donald J. Trump, which shows Trump returning from a re-election rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, wearing a rumpled blue suit, white shirt, tie undone. "He’s walking slowly and his face looks defeated. And all I could think of in looking at that photograph was ‘Death of a Salesman.’ Donald Trump as Willy Loman….He’s selling a stale product, an old product, that more and more people aren't buying because they're confronted with the reality that we're all confronted with: More than 40 million people unemployed and a virus that could kill you like that if you catch it from God knows where. And he says very little about that.” Watch more of the conversation with Barnicle and Morning Joe’s Willie Geist here.

Stacey Abrams, former Democratic minority leader in the Georgia House of Representatives and author of "Our Time Is Now," discusses with Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle her thoughts on how to both reform and transform police departments in cities large and small in America by changing the way police do their jobs, banning choke holds, increasing training, and investing in communities by providing a higher quality of education, health care, affordable housing and community programs. "This is a ‘both' ‘and' solution to the challenges that have plagued this country from the beginning,” Abrams said. Watch more of the conversation here.

Gary Chambers Jr., who in a now-viral video sharply criticized East Baton Rouge Parish School Board member Connie Bernard who defended the controversial name of Lee High School named for Confederate Army Gen. Robert E. Lee, and who then appeared to be online shopping and “ignoring” community concerns during an intense debate over whether to rename the school. "It’s heart-breaking and that’s why it’s resonated with so many people,” said Chambers, publisher of The Rouge Collection.

Morning Joe's Mika Brzezinski and Mike Barnicle discuss President Donald Trump’s Tulsa, Oklahoma reelection rally, which produced a low turnout amid the coronavirus pandemic. “I don't think Donald Trump knows what's going on. He certainly knows the polls, but I think what he senses is that a referendum on Donald Trump in various states means one thing: It means he loses. So…he’s got to find an excuse so he doesn't have to blame himself and people don't blame him: The virus will be his excuse when he loses….But Donald Trump is the root of...everything that is disrupting this country today because from Day One of his presidency, he has focused on one thing above all else: Division, dividing the country,” says Barnicle.

You cannot provide common sense to someone who lacks it, and this was an astounding case of a lack of common sense resulting in murder two charges for that police officer,” says Barnicle about the police officer who shot and killed Brooks.
