Mike Barnicle on Donald Trump as Commander-and-Chief

As Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s attack on 1996 Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado in which he stated that she had “gained a massive amount of weight and it was a real problem,” continued to snowball and lead headlines, the Morning Joe panel discussed the ramifications of this to his presidential prospects. As a candidate that has consistently struggled in the polls with both women voters and minority voters, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle raises an important point: “We can sit here and talk about the potential of Donald Trump as Commander-and-Chief, we can talk about Donald Trump’s economic package… but when you combine ‘Miss Piggy’ with ‘Miss Housekeeping’ with this woman, that has more resonance to many people… than anything we talk about.” Only on Morning Joe.
