Morning Joe's Mika Brzezinski and Mike Barnicle discuss some of the challenges facing Democratic presidential candidates, particularly former Vice President Joe Biden, in their quest to beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 race. “A huge percentage of people in this country are living on a paycheck-to-paycheck economy…and they're not often talked about, they're not often addressed. A big day on the street for a lot of families is the fact that they’ve got enough money to pay the oil bill, or buy a pair of sneakers, or have their kids being able to go to the movies this weekend. Those are the issues that the candidates like Joe Biden have to address going forward,” explains Barnicle. Join the conversation here.

I think probably at some level they do, but on a day-to-day basis they don’t, and this story for the Democrats: To achieve some sense of victory or standing in this story, they need to improve their narrative. They need a storyteller, and they need Bob Mueller to appear before the House to testify,” comments. Join the conversation here.

"People should be really annoyed at this: When it says the House sends a letter to the Attorney General demanding to know what he's doing with the ACA, and he's been given two weeks to respond, okay. If you have a preexisting condition and you have to go to an emergency room—you, yourself or with one of your children—you don't get two weeks to respond. Your entire income, your entire family's future could be gone in one moment in an emergency room, and we give these clowns two weeks to respond to the potential destruction of an act that has saved hundreds of lives,” comments Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during a conversation with Mika Brzezinski and Eugene Robinson about House committee chairs having demanded information from the Department of Justice—within two weeks—on the decision to revert its position on the Affordable Care Act, now holding it as unconstitutional.

Listen in as Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Mike Barnicle discuss Attorney General William Barr’s controversial testimony in a contentious Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, where he answered questions on special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and was accused of protecting President Donald Trump at the country’s expense. “We had a sitting attorney general of the United States who clearly had not even read the full Mueller report. He had not looked at the underlying evidence within the Mueller report. He went out of his way to disparage members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation who work for this country to protect this country. He went out of his way to damage and disparage Bob Mueller and his effort, and...really at the end of the day, he made Jeff Sessions look like Justice Brandeis,” said Barnicle.
