What we worry about now

“This president has proven himself to be particularly, specifically, unable to do the job that he was elected to do,” says Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle about President Donald Trump. "And…he is oddly irrelevant to a lot of people's lives. People get up every morning now in this country wondering about a few things specifically: You don't want to die. You don't want to catch this virus. You don't want your family to be affected by this virus. You worry about paying the rent and the mortgage every day. And that gets down to now, I think, a key word in our culture, and the word is ‘solvency.’” Hear more of the conversation here between Barnicle and Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough about President Donald Trump’s reluctancy to act against the coronavirus before the outbreak in America despite being warned by federal agencies, as outlined in a New York Times article that indicates Trump was more focused on controlling the message, protecting the economy and battling warnings instead of taking early action against the coronavirus.
