“Sometimes…the weight of all these issues have to be set aside for just a moment to engage in something that is vital to American life….February 14th, it's a huge day. Pitchers and catchers have reported, and we're beginning to think about real issues like lack of bullpen strength in Boston and how the Yankees are going to do,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle as the Morning Joe panel shares its final thoughts before Valentine’s Day.

“The wall is kind of a metaphor for Donald Trump’s presidency. The foundation of the wall is hate, it's fear. And as you build his wall over the course of his political career, you build on that hate and that fear, and it becomes fear of the other, and then it becomes fear of brown people, and it becomes fear of caravans, and fear of invasions, and fear of MS-13. That's the root of Trump's presidential election and that’s going to be the root of his reelection campaign,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle as Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist discuss President Donald Trump’s much-promised border wall and the funding for it.

“The sadness for the country at this point in our history, our time here, right now, is that we have a President of the United States who constantly picks at the scab of division, of race and of class, and that's not good for anyone. The Virginia story is just another added burden to our numbness when it comes to race and our inability to handle it,” comments veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during a discussion with Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski about past racist behavior by Virginia's governor, attorney general and a top state senator that come at a time of deep division over race and privilege in the country.”

Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, Willie Geist and Mike Barnicle discuss news that former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is seriously considering running—as an independent—for president and a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll that shows only 32% of people believe that Donald Trump is knowledgable and experienced enough to handle the presidency. “The President of the United States pure and simple is incompetent. He can’t do the job," says Barnicle. As for Schultz: "He’s not going to affect the presidential election because he’s not going to there in the end.” You can hear more of the conversation here.

There was not a knock saying, you know, ‘Bin Laden, FBI, come on out.’ They didn't do that,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle. You can watch the exchange here.

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.
