"If you do a forensic autopsy of the failures of this Administration with regard to COVID-19, its handling of it….it is horrendous. And we are approaching 200,000 deaths from COVID-19 in this country,” says Morning Joe contributor and veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during a conversation about with Mika Brzezinski. "There’s going to be no wall with the names of the casualties, the victims, the killed in action victims to COVID-19….Yellow ribbons at the end of the driveway on your mailbox aren't going to cut it. This is a complete breakdown and failure, incompetence and immorality—I would submit of this Administration—and people like Donald Trump's enablers in person just now Bill Barr, the attorney general of the United States.” Watch the discussion here.

Morning Joe veteran columnist remembers 9/11 on this 19th anniversary of terrorist attacks with reflections on an event that memorialized two Bedford, Massachusetts, sons lost to war: John Hart, 20 years of age when he was killed in Iraq in 2003, and Travis Desiato, 19, when he was killed in Fallujah in 2004. "The two families – Brian Hart and the Desiatos – they stood there, and they weren't angry, they weren't yelling, they weren't ideological. They had gathered some people and a few members of the press because they wanted people to know that their two boys who had options, other than joining the Army and the Marine Corps, had options—but chose to serve the United States of America. They sacrificed their lives. They weren't ‘losers,’ they weren't ‘suckers,’ that's what this family wanted. And there was more sadness than there was anger and the sadness was over the fact that as Brian Hart – John Hart's father – said, that we are now led by a man like Donald J. Trump,” says Barnicle as he shares with Willie Geist and viewers the story of a memorial service held for two young fallen American soldiers.Tune in to watch this Morning Joe conversation between veteran columnist Mike Barnicle and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) about the economic struggle for millions of Americans amid the coronavirus outbreak and the need for more financial relief since the last federal assistance check that many families received was more than two months ago.

“We can measure the damage the virus has done. We do it with a body count, sadly, approaching 200,000 people, and multiple millions of cases. But we can't really measure the damage that Donald Trump has done to institutions of this country and the damage he's done to the country itself…to the people of this country by his behavior, his verbiage, his rhetoric, his daily rhetoric, his daily lies—as you point out—is almost incalculable,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during this Morning Joe conversation with host Joe Scarborough about the findings in legendary journalist Bob Woodward’s latest book "Rage” which reveals that President Trump admitted he knew weeks before the first confirmed U.S. coronavirus death that the virus was dangerous, airborne, highly contagious and more deadly than even your strenuous flus.

“Donald Trump has been president for 1,321 days. When he was sworn in on January 20th, 2017, there was no virus, the unemployment rate was 4.1 percent, your children were going to school, cities were not embroiled in racial tension as they are now. But here we are: 30 million people are unemployed, people live in angst, anxiety, and sometimes fear of contracting the virus because the government—the federal government, led by Donald J. Trump—has done very little to address it nationally and come up with solutions nationally at a point in time when it could’ve made a difference. And the big thing right now, at this moment, on the second of September, is: Can you put your children in school? Well, you can't. All of that is on Donald J. Trump,” says Morning Joe contributor Mike Barnicle about Trump’s responsibility for the major problems facing America today.
