While the Morning Joe panel reviews President Donald Trump’s Oval Office address last night, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle puts it into context: “It raises the question—an important one...What happens when there is a real crisis? When there is a real emergency? Does he take to the air waves? Do we give him the air waves? Do we believe him? That's a real question that’s going to have to be answered. The president continually...gets right up to the edge of 'this as a national emergency'. Well, there is a national emergency I would submit, and we saw it last night: It’s him.” Listen to more of the conversation here.

They’ve already voted….The early voting numbers are such that I think the Democrats are going to have a very, very big night,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle as the Morning Joe panel shares its outlook on today’s midterm elections.

“The country is not, I don't think, anecdotally, as divided as we think it is. People want community restored. They want calmness restored. As John Heilemann pointed out: This particular president has injected himself into this campaign to the point where he said: ‘I'm on the ballot. This is a vote for me.’ So, we're going to find out a lot about the country, the direction of the country going forward, next Tuesday,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during a conversation with Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough about President Donald Trump’s rhetoric leading up to the midterm elections, following the mass anti-Semitic shooting in Pittsburgh where 11 congregants were killed inside a synagogue.

But the larger context is: Finally, people like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell reading this, knowing what they know, knowing what so many around this presidency do know, is their larger obligation not to the country rather than to the party?” Listen to more here with Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist.

“At the core of this is the president of the United States clearly fearful because he knows what he did. And he knows that Bob Mueller and the investigation that they are conducting is on to what he did. And that's the result of the tweets. But there's something else here that is truly dangerous, and that is the venom that he has begun to feed on almost a daily basis out into the public. We saw it at the rally the other night, and It’s no longer fun, none of it is funny, it’s truly dangerous. And we keep referring to his base. Well, I'm sorry, but the people we saw the other evening at that rally, if that's his base, it's deranged,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle as the Morning Joe panel talks about special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe and President Donald Trump’s rally in Tampa Bay, Florida, where attendees, who support the president, berated reporters.

Veteran columnist Mike Barnicle and the Morning Joe crew talks about President Donald Trump’s campaign-style rally in Tampa Bay, Florida, this week, where attendees, who support the president, berated reporters at the rally. “(Trump) has effectively changed the culture around coverage of his presidency, and you saw it again vividly last night on display in Florida. We’ve seen it every time, and it has worked for him. The ultimate mystery…and it includes most of the members of the Republican Party, both the House and the Senate: How is it that we have had effectively war declared in the United States of America by Russia, war declared on us, carried out, an act of war carried out on us—and they seem not to care about that? That is a huge mystery.”

“To use a phrase: Yesterday really was a day to cry for the country. This great republic that means so much to so many around the world. To see the president of the United States, Mr. Trump, shrink – shrink – next to Vladimir Putin, to drop his oath of office, to drop his duty on a world stage — to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. And then to have so many here in this country, on TV programs like this one say, ‘what a surprise.’ No, this was not a surprise. This was Mr. Trump in full view of the world. This is who he is: ignorant, narcissistic, all involved with himself. His priority is himself, not the country, not the presidency. He is unaware of history. He was unaware certainly yesterday of anything that this republic has stood for through the ages. The only thing he was aware of, clearly, was that he was in Putin’s pocket,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle as the Morning Joe panel talks about the fallout from President Donald Trump’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, the day after the gathering between the two leaders, where President Trump sided with President Putin over US intelligence on the topic of Russian interfered in the 2016 presidential election.
