Tune in as Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Mike Barnicle discuss the House Democrats having postponed a vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism amid escalating tensions over Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) alleged anti-Semitic remarks. “One of the most offensive tropes that was uttered is this idea that some people because they're Jewish have more of an allegiance to Israel than the United States of America,” said Barnicle. “That is truly, deeply offensive, and it ought to be to every ethnic group in this country. I'm for a united Ireland, but America is where I live. America is my country, not Ireland.” Listen to more of the conversion here.

Listen in on the conversation between Morning Joe’s Mike Barnicle and The New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker about President Donald Trump and his team of one. “With the thinning out of the White House staff, how many people surrounding the President of the United States does he listen to? Or are we into a process where it's only the President whose opinion and view counts and he carries forward with very little insight from anybody else?” Find out what Baker has to say here.

“You would think from the outside looking in that this means the end—really—of the day-to-day operation of the Trump Administration. They’re going to be so tied up in responding and reacting to these requests internally in the White House...given a staff that does not get exactly high marks to begin with and the thinness of the staff—so many people have departed. How do they function, Jonathan, on a day-to-day basis with all of this hanging over their heads?” asks veteran columnist Mike Barnicle of Associated Press White House reporter Jonathan Lemire as the Morning Joe panel talks about the House of Representatives launching a sweeping abuse of power investigation into President Donald Trump.

Where are the Republicans today on this? Where are they?” Listen to more of the discussion here.

ICYMI: Morning Joe’s Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough, Mike Barnicle and Willie Geist discuss the societal problems of gun violence and social media in the wake of “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett being charged with a felony for allegedly staging a hate-crime attack to promote his career. "Superintendent Johnson in Chicago gave us the lead. And the lead isn’t Smollett—the lead is life on the street. The lead is the hundreds and hundreds of families, people, young people, old people in Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston–you name the city–who live under the threat of the gun each and every day, each hour of every day. And young people being killed, shot on alleyways, on sidewalks for whatever: For wearing the wrong hat, wearing the wrong gang colors, things like that. These young people, many of them are immediately forgotten, their names never even appear in the paper,” says veteran columnist Barnicle. Listen to more of the conversation here.

"Words are also weapons—and especially when framed by the President of the United States—they are potentially lethal weapons. In this climate, in this country, at this time, with the ocean of guns that are out there and people's access to weapons, this is a lot more than just playing with fire,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle as the Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, Willie Geist and Elise Jordan discuss the escalation of violent rhetoric in the era of President Donald Trump, following news that federal authorities arrested a U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant and self-described white nationalist who had more than a dozen firearms, ammunition and a hit list of Democratic lawmakers, activists and media personalities in his Maryland home.

“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.”

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.
