“Joe, it’s a tsunami of events, almost unparalleled--certainly in recent American political history. When you get the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA), doing what he did, which is tantamount to a prosecutor in a capital murder case, leaning over, and telling his co-counsel: ‘Hey, I’ve just got to go across the hall and talk to the defendant. I have a couple of tips that might help him out.’ It's just staggering, beyond belief,” says Morning Joe senior contributor Mike Barnicle as he and host Joe Scarborough weigh in on Nunes’ defense of President Donald J. Trump’s unsupported wiretap allegations against former President Barack Obama. Listen in on ht the conversation here.

The Morning Joe panel reacts to President Donald J. Trump's speech at the National Republican Congressional Committee March Dinner, in which he suggests that most people don’t know that President Abraham Lincoln was a Republican. “Someone should really build a memorial to Lincoln after hearing that. I never knew that," says Mike Barnicle, sarcastically. Listen to President Trump’s comments about Lincoln here and go along for the ride with Morning Joe's Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist.

“How do you get people to stay home in places like southern Ohio, western Pennsylvania, northern Kentucky?” asks Morning Joe senior contributor Mike Barnicle of bestselling author J.D. Vance, whose book "Hillbilly Elegy” examines poverty and economic malaise among America’s white working class. Vance has just joined forces with Revolution LLC, the D.C.-based investment firm founded by AOL co-founder Steve Case. The two will work together to grow investments in startups outside the Silicon Valley and New York City tech bubbles, which received the bulk of VC funding.

As the Morning Joe conversation continue about the impact of New York City newspaper columnist Jimmy Breslin, who died Friday at age 88, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle says: “A century from now, historians will look at Jimmy Breslin's columns to get a handle of what life was like in the mid to late 20th century, early 21st century. Dan Barry’s obit in The New York Times was so spectacular. One line sums everything up about Jimmy's writings and how he changed column writing in newspaper, and it is that Breslin inspired every emotion but indifference….He was a magical, magical writer. I cannot say enough about him.” Tune in here for more from Barnicle and The Washington Post's columnist David Ignatius on Breslin and the late rock ’n roll great Chuck Berry.

Live from Newton, Mass., Morning Joe’s Mike Barnicle talks with host Mika Brzezinski about the legacy of legendary New York City newspaper columnist Jimmy Breslin, who died Friday at age 88. “He was a columnist for the ages,” says Barnicle, a veteran newspaper columnist. "There was never one like him before, and there will never be another one like him again, and that’s not really hyperbole. What Jimmy Breslin did for American newspapers was miraculous. It was like reading a fine novel in about 900 words. The electricity of the thought. His reporting was remarkable and his writing skill was incredible.” Listen in for much more from Barnicle on Breslin: “A man of many emotions….He was what life is all about: A huge roller coaster of emotions."

During a Morning Joe discussion of President Donald Trump’s first budget proposal, branding and marketing expert Donny Deutsch recalls a comment that veteran columnist and Morning Joe regular Mike Barnicle made during Trump’s run for the White House. “Mike Barnicle, during the campaign, said: ‘One thing about this President-elect is there doesn't seem to be any empathy there.' And there is no empathy in this budget. On top of idiocy, there is no soul in there,” says Deutsch. “This president only bets on the present day. I don’t think this guy gives a damn what he leaves in his wake.” Hear more of the conversation and co-host Joe Scarborough’s opinion on the budget proposal, which he tweeted from his vacation.

This is his pattern for his entire professional life since he began as a developer in New York with the phrases, the spin, the misdirection….What he is doing is damage to his own presidency because the main ball game here is healthcare, and by keeping the light on this problem he is taking it off of healthcare.” Listen to more of the discussion on Trump here with host Mika Brzezinski, NBC’s Willie Geist and the BBC World News America’s Katty Kay.

Trump for president. So, when you go home, how do you speak to people who voted for Trump, who under this proposed healthcare bill will have very little access to opioid clinics, rehab facilities. What do you tell them other than `You’re probably going to die if you get sick'?” asks Morning Joe senior contributor Mike Barnicle of Sen.

On the other hand, what he now articulates nearly every day and the President helps him articulate this: ’Restoring the coal mines, restoring the factories in New England, the manufacturing base in this country throughout the middle West.

“The Speaker of the House — in some people's views — is slowly becoming unclothed in public,” said Morning Joe’s veteran columnist Mike Barnicle in response to House Speaker Paul Ryan’s interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, during which he said he had no knowledge of any proof to support President Donald Trump’s accusations that former President Barack Obama ordered wiretapping of Trump’s phones. “(Ryan is) supposed to be a very smart guy. He comes out with this health plan — can't tell you how much it costs. He is asked about the wiretapping tweet issued by the President of the United States a week ago, and he says: ‘Well, we have an unconventional presidency.’ Yeah, I would say so. You’re accusing a former president of being a felon." Watch highlights from Speaker Ryan’s interview here with John Dickerson.

"Mark, this quote uttered months ago by Steve Bannon that the mission is to ‘deconstruct the administrative state.’ That's the mission of the Trump administration. If you walk around and do your own grocery shopping and stuff like that, part of it seems to be taking hold. In terms of trying to delegitimatize things, they have basically gone after the Congress, the courts, the regulatory agencies, a large part of the federal bureaucracy, (and) the State Department — has no one working there practically. Is this a plan that is constantly being implemented within the White House? Is it something that they viscerally feel each and every day? ‘Yeah, let's do this and let’s go after this aspect and we’ll further weaken things,’” asks Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle of NBC News Senior Political Analyst Mark Halperin during a conversation about the White House’s immediate goals and how, according to Halperin, the pending health care legislation leaves the Administration’s fate hanging in the balance.

If they oppose the leadership, if they oppose the bill, there is a high chance that a lot of them will get primaried, which is their worst fear.

“This is an extraordinary week. I was off for a few days last week on a reporting trip. From Tuesday night from the President's speech, in which many people thought was the highlight of his early young presidency, this was the return to normalcy, to his normalcy on Saturday morning,” said Morning Joe’s Mike Barnicle about POTUS's unconfirmed claims through Twitter that former President Barack Obama ordered a wiretap of his phones in Trump Tower before the election. “(Trump) basically accused a former President of the United States of committing a felony, and that was followed by the Director of the FBI asking the Justice Department to tell the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, to stop lying. This is going to have to play out in the House or the Senate intelligence committees or a special prosecutor. This is a true crisis of confidence in this young presidency.” Listen to more on the topic with Morning Joe hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough here.
