“This week began with the heads of every intelligence agency in the United States of America – CIA, FBI, DNA, NSA – standing before the United States Senate saying, basically Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, saying: ‘We're under attack.’ The President of the United States disagrees with every intelligence agency. That's not normal. None of this is normal,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle as the Morning Joe panel talks about reports that Russian-linked Twitter accounts flooded the social media platforms immediately following the Parkland school massacre with tweets using popular hashtags like #parkland, #guncontrolnow and #florida. Listen to more on the situation here.

During the Morning Joe discussion about White House Chief of Staff John Kelly publicly suggesting that some Dreamers are “too lazy” to sign up for DACA, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle responds: "John Kelly is a good man. What he said was terribly unfortunate, terribly sad and not accurate because it costs $500 to apply for a DACA card. That’s a lot of money.” Listen to more of the discussion on MSNBC.

During a Morning Joe discussion with NBC News national politics reporter Alex Seitz-Wald, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle comments: “Older Democrats seem to be concerned a bit, maybe more than a bit, about the emphasis on identity politics of the younger Democrats running—figuring that they have no discipline, and that you're going to fracture the party with the different variations of identity politics.” Hear the conversation on Morning Joe about the new energy flooding the Democratic Party and what it might mean heading into the 2018 midterm elections.

“A lot has happened over the past 14 months since Donald Trump was sworn in as president. This is the saddest thing to my mind. We have been at war for 17 years. We have had nearly two decades of sacrifice and sorrow borne by less than one percent of the American public. The American military is the strongest, the proudest, the best in the world. The American military and the American people do not need a parade—we need peace,” says Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during a conversation with Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and John Heilemann about President Donald Trump’s instruction to the Pentagon to plan a major military parade in DC.

In continuing the Morning Joe conversation analogy that the Trump White House is akin to a reality TV show, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle says: “This is the first sequel that we’ve seen in presidential politics in quite a while where the president, in the second-part series here, becomes irrelevant. The Senate is moving forward without the President—as if he doesn’t exist.” Hear more of the discussion about President Donald Trump's threatening to shut the government down for a second time—this time over border security.

“Everyone, nearly everyone, around the President of the United States is in a state of panic about the spectacle, the specter, of him having to testify before Bob Mueller,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle as the Morning Joe panel discusses whether President Donald Trump will be interviewed by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III as part of the investigation into possible ties between Trump’s associates and Russia’s election interference, and whether he obstructed justice.
