“The ripples of relief began in Washington and extend around the globe – specifically to Europe with the testimony of General (James) Mattis, General (John) Kelly, and Congressman (Mike) Pompeo. Each three in their own ways in the testimony, in the questions and answers that they were providing to the committees, looked professional, responsible, not crazy. They weren’t going to do anything off the cuff, and I think they gave a great degree of confidence to the people who are going to be voting on their nominations as well as to our allies overseas - especially Mattis on the Iran Treaty,” said Morning Joe senior contributor Mike Barnicle about the Trump Cabinet confirmation hearings happening this week.

“Wrong venue, wrong time…Important content, but it basically should’ve been given two years from now as he launches his campaign for president,” said Morning Joe senior correspondent Mike Barnicle during a panel discussion about Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker’s decision to break precedent by testifying against his Senate colleague Jeff Sessions’ (R-AL) nomination for Attorney General, which led many to believe Booker was using his speech in a calculated attempt to launch his bid for the 2020 presidential election.

Morning Joe senior contributor Mike Barnicle says it was “good parenting” to have children watch President Barack Obama’s Farewell Address from Chicago. "That was a spectacular moment. You had the President of the United States going out the door…and the speech was – I thought – spectacular in the sense that it wasn’t a partisan speech. It wasn’t about yesterday. It was more about tomorrow. And it was directional and optimistic for the country.” Listen in on more of the conversation here.

“Here is the killer quote…from Paul Ryan, when asked about his replacement plan (for Obamacare), he said: ‘You’ll see it as the weeks and months unfold.’ For those who don’t have health insurance that’s a long, long time. Who has a plan?,” asks Morning Joe senior contributor Mike Barnicle during a conversation with MSNBC political correspondent Kasie Hunt about House Speaker Paul Ryan saying Republicans have a plan to replace the Affordable Care Act at a press conference in Capitol Hill but then refusing to provide any specific details when asked by a reporter at the event. Hear which politician Hunt says may hold the answer. Only on MSNBC.

As the Morning Joe panel discusses the desire some Republican politicians have for immediately rescinding the Affordable Care Act despite not yet having an alternative program to replace it, senior contributor Mike Barnicle explains: “One of the principal messaging points of the Republicans who want to just repeal Obamacare right now…is that `health care costs have gone up. Instead of $112 a month you’re not going to be charged $175.’ These are people – a huge percentage of them – who have never had healthcare.” Tune in to listen to the conversation and Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough explain why revoking the Affordable Care Act without a replacement program would ultimately hurt the Republicans in coming elections.

As the Morning Joe panel discusses President-elect Donald Trump’s recent tweets disparaging the intelligence community, including one tweet where he supports Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s claim that the Russian government was not the source of hacked Democratic campaign emails, senior contributor Mike Barnicle says: “First of all, you’re not going to believe everything that Julian Assange says. The key element is…what it does to the professionalism and moral of the intelligence gathering community. What do Donald Trump’s tweets mean to that community? A president cannot deal in gossip and rumor.... He needs to have the briefings. He’s got to have professional material presented to him.” Listen to more on the topic here.

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, senior contributor Mike Barnicle and host Joe Scarborough discuss the media coverage of President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign and what the public might expect from the coverage of his Presidency in the coming year. “Unfortunately, large parts of the media [but] not all of the media, have spent so much time obsessing over his tweets to the exclusion of 'have you received a full intelligence briefing yet, Mr. President-elect'? You realize, when you think about it, that Donald Trump is playing us quite successfully because I don’t know… whether he has received a full intelligence briefing. I don’t know that he’s fully addressed… the relationship with Russia,” says Barnicle. Tune in to hear the rest of the conversation here..
