Mike Barnicle: "Donald Trump isn’t a politician, he’s a cultural phenomenon"

“There is a three-legged stool in American politics that is still there—and it’s anger, frustration and alienation felt by a lot of voters. Donald Trump isn’t a politician, he’s a cultural phenomenon...everything that comes out of his mouth is stream of consciousness, but he gets people nodding their heads. Some of it is crazy, some of it makes no sense, but some of it—more than a little—taps into a grain. People are pissed-off about their government… and he taps into it,” says MSNBC's Mike Barnicle of Donald Trump’s surge in popularity among the Republican base. Watch Mike’s full comments on what he believes is behind Trump’s perplexingly successful presidential campaign here. Only on Morning Joe.
