“This is the last presidential campaign I'm covering. I've done every one since 1972—this is it. I won't be doing it four years from now,” says Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle. “Listening to that president speak, all I could think of was the ‘fake news’ thing that he's been selling—it worked. It has damaged our credibility and going forward we have to take a look at this country. We have upwards of maybe 45 percent of this country who resent the other half of the country….No republic can survive in the long run with that kind of division. We've got to heal the resentments that boil, fester every day.” Hear more of the conversation with Joe Scarborough as the two share takeaways from the 2020 presidential election as the race has remained unsettled.

On this Election Day, Morning Joe's Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, Willie Geist and Mike Barnicle look back at past concession speeches from presidential candidates who failed to win the White House but were graceful in defeat, showing an "extraordinary display of character in the most terrible of situations for the person involved after expending all of that energy and effort to win the presidency.” Looking forward to the results of the 2020 presidential election, Barnicle added: "I hope and pray for the sake of the country, our country, that it will be a healing statement and not a statement of division."

ICYMI: Veteran columnist Mike Barnicle joined MSNBC Live With Yasmin Vossoughian to discuss the flurry of campaign activity just days before Election Day 2020 and his latest column for The Daily Beast titled “Joe Biden’s Grief is the DNA of his Humanity.” Says Barnicle: “People want their lives back. They want to be able to think that there's competence in Washington, there's competence in dealing with the issues that affect them in their everyday lives. They know there's not competence when it comes to the single issue that is festering throughout this country, and that is the virus….(President Donald J. Trump) has denied the virus. He has denied the existence, the strength, and the scope of the virus….When it comes to Joe Biden, people look at him and say, 'Well, you know, he doesn't excite me like Barack Obama, maybe. Maybe I was a Republican, I've never voted for a Democrat. But I need competence in my life. I need someone who can get this job done and someone who understands the concept that all of us understand'—the concept of loss that you just referred to."

"We live now in an age where on this program and other programs and in print all over America people write newspaper columns and editorials over the year and they say: ‘You know, is this who we really are as Americans?’ Well, it's not who we really are and what's going on right now, but it's who we're slowly becoming: Loud, and brash, and arrogant, and vituperative, damaging each other, attacking each other. That's not what people want. People want this country calmed down, and that ad gets to it in a very powerful way,” says Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle about a new campaign advertisement, narrated by Sam Elliott for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, which premiered during Game 1 of the World Series just two weeks before Election Day.

“There are 220,000 Americans who are dead today – dead – and it's not because people are tired of the pandemic. People are tired of the incompetence that the pandemic has been met with and the incompetence stems from Donald Trump's handling of the virus," says Morning Joe contributor Mike Barnicle during this conversation with host Mika Brzezinski following President Trump’s continued public attacks on Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government's top infectious disease expert, and the media, amid the coronavirus outbreak that continues to ravage the country just two weeks from the presidential election.

"The reality is—we all know what the reality is—Donald Trump can only see himself. He does not see the people in the audience. He does not understand their plight. He does not understand the reality that they could obviously get the virus and be in tremendous physical difficulty,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during this Morning Joe conversation with Willie Geist about President Donald Trump’s false claims about a “cure” for coronavirus amid the huge gap in care available to the president and everyday Americans who are faced with growing numbers of infections, costly medical bills and rising unemployment. "There's a huge difference between the two and Donald Trump just doesn't get that difference.”
