During a Morning Joe conversation centered on an editorial in the English-language Chinese newspaper the Global Times about China's increased pressure on North Korea to end provocations, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle asks Richard Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations: "I'm wondering, given that there's fairly optimistic tones in that editorial… and at the same time…we have the Vice President of the United States on the deck of an aircraft carrier in Tokyo Bay sort of rattling sabers. What story is best for us?” Listen to Haass’ response here and his praise for the Trump Administration following President Donald Trump's first face-to-face meeting with China’s leader Xi Jinping earlier this month.

During the Morning Joe conversation about the ouster of top-rated cable news host Bill O’Reilly from Fox News after the disclosure of a series of sexual harassment allegations against him and reported payouts, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle comments: “You can't underestimate the political, cultural impact that Fox News and Bill O'Reilly has had on this country...an extraordinary impact on further dividing America politically, categorizing America politically.” Listen in on the conversation as the rest of the panel weighs in on the significance of O’Reilly’s dismissal, which came also after advertisers stopped supporting O’Reilly’s show.

“You want someone opposed to war, go to the Pentagon (and) talk to people like General (James) Mattis, General H.R. McMaster. Read McMaster’s book ‘Dereliction of Duty,’ which outlines the incredible flaws, and human failure, and cowardice at the command level in the 1960s in Vietnam,” says Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during a conversation with Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) about National Security Advisor McMaster and Secretary of Defense Mattis. Watch the discussion here.

While the Morning Joe panel analyzes the situation facing White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon on the heels of butting heads with others in the Trump Administration, including POTUS, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle explains: “(Bannon) works for the President of the United States. You can't walk around Washington, D.C. leaking stuff about how you made (Trump) president and now you’re manipulating his presidency, and you’re molding his thought process because it's yours.” Tune in to hear NBC News correspondent Katy Tur share what an ally of Bannon told her about the White House chief strategist’s current status.

“Admiral, given that sentiment you just expressed, given your military career, given your knowledge of General (James) Mattis: The day after is always a most critical moment in terms of like 59 Tomahawk missiles or cruise missiles being sent over there. What does it do? What did that do? And what is it doing now to alter what we do on the ground vis-à-vis Russia and other nations in Syria?,” asks Morning Joe’s veteran columnist Mike Barnicle of Admiral James Stavridis, former Supreme Allied Commander, NATO, during a conversation about the White House’s strategy for dealing with Syria following the missile strike. Listen to Stavridis’ response here on MSNBC.

“Congressman, let’s take those two countries: Syria and Iraq, as well as Afghanistan. We’ve been at war for 16 years in Afghanistan, 14 years in Iraq. You have spent an enormous number of years on the ground in Iraq. So when you go home on weekends to Salem and have town meetings in the North Shore in Massachusetts and a parent comes up to you and asks you: ‘I have a 19-year-old son. He's a Lance Corporal in the United States Marine Corps. He's in Iraq today; he might go to Syria tomorrow. Why is he there?’ What do you say?” asks Morning Joe’s veteran columnist Mike Barnicle of Marine Corp. veteran and U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, during a conversation about the U.S. military possibly going into Syria following President Donald Trump’s missile strike there. “It's a good question and I do get that question a lot,” responded Moulton, who called for a strategy for Syria before troops are sent in.

The Morning Joe panel discusses a report in The Washington Post that the FBI — as part of its investigation into possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia — had obtained a secret FISA warrant last summer to monitor the communications of Carter Page, at the time an adviser to then presidential candidate Donald Trump. Explains veteran columnist Mike Barnicle: “You do not get a FISA warrant on a whim or a suspicion. You have to have probable cause. The FBI in this case apparently had probable cause. Then you go to the FISA Court, comprised of judges. I couldn't name the judges on the FISA Court. They go to great lengths to really disguise who the FISA Court judges are, and they, thus, get a warrant to look at Carter Page.” Listen to more from Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough and author Jon Meacham.

While the Morning Joe panel reacts to the viral video of officers dragging a United Airlines’ passenger off a plane against his will after refusing to leave because the flight was overbooked, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle says: “One of the untold stories in this country -- and it’s untold because it happens so frequently, so often, every day -- is the status of commercial flight in America. It is horrendous.” Listen in on the conversation among hosts Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough and regulars Willie Geist and Barnicle about how the airline industry has changed dramatically since deregulation and consolidation.

“The most endlessly fascinating topic that all of us witness each and every day (is) human nature…and reading between the lines of every Steve Bannon story, you clearly have a man here who thinks he created a presidency,” said Morning Joe’s veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during a conversation about the tension within the inner circle of the Trump Administration. “Then you take the jump into the White House where you now have President Donald Trump and you have Steve Bannon thinking, because he created the presidency, it's now his job and he has the authority to mold and manipulate the presidency.” Listen in on the conversation between Barnicle and host Joe Scarborough about the role of White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon in the Trump White House.
