ICYMI: Watch this Morning Joe conversation as Mike Barnicle and others share their thoughts on President Joe Biden’s Afghanistan speech in which he defended his decision to end America’s 20-year war there and called the evacuation from Kabul an “extraordinary success” in his remarks. Commented Barnicle that despite Biden being "angered and outraged to his core” about the killings that took place in Afghanistan, “I heard a very strong defense of his position. After 20 years of death, deception—despite some immense progress in Afghanistan with regard to women and education—20 years of delusion….The president knows that only one thing is forever and that's death. He knows that most of those at the airport were there in Afghanistan for perhaps their first time, greeting complete strangers, people they've never met, in order to save their lives.” More from the segment here.

Listen in on this Morning Joe conversation with Willie Geist, Eugene Robinson and Mike Barnicle as they discuss Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson remaining uncertain about getting vaccinated against COVID-19 after returning from his second bout with the virus in the last eight months. “Lamar Jackson is a tremendous quarterback, a tremendous athlete, there’s no doubt about that, Willie. But he's not a team guy because he has just proven he is not a team guy….The other aspect of it—getting COVID twice and still being worried about the vaccine—I mean, that is truly mystifying in this current time, truly mystifying,” says Barnicle about Jackson after the NFL announced that teams will forfeit and be slapped with a loss if a game is cancelled because of a COVID-19 outbreak among their unvaccinated players.

It's the slow destruction of the republic, really. It's the disbelief in the government. It's the disbelief in the vaccine—a vaccine that has been proven to be helpful, and in many, many cases life saving to Americans and people around the world…Get it and safe your life,” says Barnicle about the COVID-19 vaccine.

And yet what we're talking about, these attempts by state legislatures to alter and make tougher election laws, making it impossible for people to vote or very difficult for people to vote, I would consider that to be secondary to the larger issue, and the larger issue would be, is the damage that Donald Trump has done to our country, to our institutions: Is it permanent, is it lasting, or is it temporary?

"I’m sitting here for the past few days thinking about the incalculable damage that one man—Donald Trump—has done to this country and to our political system. And I’m wondering if you, like me, have thought back to Adam Schiff’s summation during the impeachment proceedings—when he talked about why Donald Trump had to be impeached, and he raised the question of the Republicans wondering, you know, ‘how much damage could he do?’ And Schiff ended his summation by saying ‘a lot.’ And in my mind harkening back to those words then to today, and what is playing out right in front of the world, I don’t think ‘a lot’ really handles the scope of the damage that Donald Trump has done,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle to Washington Post associate editor Eugene Robinson during this Morning Joe conversation about the significant harm President Donald Trump and Republican lawmakers have inflicted upon the country as they have actively refused to accept the results of the 2020 election.
