“You have spent more time with Donald Trump than anybody, except perhaps Melania, and you’ve got him on tape. So, I'm wondering, what do you think about the theory that perhaps in an irony, complete political irony, his dominance in the media will end up defeating him because he appears now in front of the American public filled with bitterness and narcissism that anyone could recognize,” asks veteran columnist Mike Barnicle of Washington Post associate editor and author Bob Woodward during this Morning Joe discussion following the midterm elections.

You know, just accept it and go on. Learn from it. Don’t be a sore loser. The clip that we played coming into this segment of the Republicans’ reaction to their winning is to denounce their opponent still,” says Barnicle about some GOP candidates who won the midterm elections.

"Never, ever underestimate the American people. By the millions, this pageant of democracy we have, this magical day where people of all castes, all incomes, all races, all genders come out and vote. They stand in line for hours sometimes to vote, and yesterday they voted. And they walked in, and a huge number of them looked at the ballot, forgot about the pollsters, forgot about what we talk about each and every morning, and they said, oh, ‘I could vote for crazy, or I could vote for normal,’ and they checked the normal box, and that’s why we are here today,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle as the Morning Joe panel weighs in on the midterm elections results as it appears the Democratic Party has staved off the Republican “red wave” that had been predicted by many pollsters and projections.

So, this time around, as you go around the state of Ohio, can you compare the sense of community that existed when you first ran for Congress to the sense of community that's out there today? And I’m talking specifically about towns and cities where you could belong to the other party and you could argue about politics, but you had a sense of the community that you belonged to. Is it still as strong? Is it weakened?” asks veteran columnist Mike Barnicle of Ohio Democratic Senate nominee Rep.

It's shocking, but not surprising, and the violence—the level of violence—is it an uptick in the level of violence? It's an uptick in our knowledge of the level of violence….The violence of language, the violence of ignorance, and it's gone back a long time in politics, specifically in the modern era of politics. I trace a large part of it to the late 1980s when Newt Gingrich decided that the way for Republicans to really gain control was not to just defeat their opponents but to demonize them, to destroy them, and that began it. That was the incubator for what's happened now,” says Barnicle. Watch the conversation here.

“I think there’s a lot of anxiety in the country,” veteran journalist Mike Barnicle told Jonathan Lemire on Way Too Early. "I think people are living on pins and needles. They go from the grocery store to the gas station wondering what the immediate future is going to bring. I think they're especially worried about their children; people who have children. One of the things that hasn't been discussed at length at least to my ear in a lot of campaigns is what has happened to the education of younger children, grammar school and high school, who have missed so much school because of COVID and school lockdowns, and that hasn't arisen as a big issue; but, I think it lurks in the backgrounds in terms of people thinking about their future. They no longer measure their future in four or five years of ‘when I retire’ or ‘when I begin to retire.’ They measure their future now by end of this week, which is a troubling situation I think that for a lot of families,” says Barnicle about the situation for many Americans.

“Why would you negotiate with Vladimir Putin? He is a war criminal. He has used the same strategy that the Russians used in World War II: Destroy and demonize your opponent, try to make your opponent so fearful by killing innocent civilians, by bombing schools, hospitals, sanctuaries, cathedrals. Kill the civilians; that's how you win the war. That's how the Russians think that they can defeat the Ukrainians. They can't defeat the Ukrainians that way, and the United States has no one to negotiate with in Moscow because the leader of Russia is a war criminal,” says Morning Joe’s veteran columnist Mike Barnicle about Russian President Vladimir Putin in response to a letter and then a retraction from progressive U.S. Democratic lawmakers to President Joe Biden having urged him to pursue direct diplomacy with Russia more than six months after Putin launched an invasion into neighboring Ukraine and while the two countries are still engaged in a struggle for control of areas throughout eastern and southern Ukraine.

But, along the way, we’ve had Republicans, you mentioned Barry Goldwater earlier. Barry Goldwater and Hugh Scott, Republicans, went and told Richard Nixon ‘you have to go.’ There have been some really courageous Republicans in the Senate and in the House, oddly enough, who stood up over time for various issues. But this, I would submit to you, is different. This is like a virus, an infection that has married cowardice with silence and fear.

Don’t miss this Morning Joe conversation among veteran columnist Mike Barnicle, founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America Paul Rieckhoff, and comedian/activist Jon Stewart about GOP efforts to thwart health care for veterans after Senate Republicans blocked a bill meant to aid veterans exposed to toxic burn pits just weeks after the military burn pits bill, or PACT Act, initially passed the 100-member Senate with the support of 34 Republicans and all 50 Democrats. “This is pure political hypocrisy,” says Barnicle. “How do we go about singling out even more so the individuals like Josh Hawley, like Ted Cruz, who go and stand up in their home states at rallies and say we have to support our veterans—and do this as if they're invisible?” Hear Rieckhoff’s answer and plea for citizens to appeal to U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) to help veterans.

Joe Manchin (D-WV) have struck a long-awaited deal on legislation that aims to reform the tax code, fight climate change and cut health-care costs, which has caused House Republican leadership to urge members of its conference to vote against a bill to bolster the domestic chip manufacturing industry and fund scientific research, a reversal from its earlier position that came hours after the two Senate Democrats struck the deal on a multibillion-dollar reconciliation package. Viewers at home: “You’ve got to be thinking, what is going on with government that they can’t do something that’s good for America because they’re angry about the politics of it.

Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, who is serving as the panel’s vice chair, stated that former President Trump had a “sophisticated, seven-point plan" to overturn the 2020 presidential election over the course of several months while she explained how the panel plans to use its future hearings to tackle each part of the scheme. “For anyone to view what we saw last night – and, you're right, it was hard to view—and then to have these same, specific members of Congress who get up and talk publicly, as you just referenced, ‘we have to support the police’ in the midst of that chaos. I mean, this was a planned attack on the foundations of our democracy,” says Barnicle about the January 6 attack on the Capitol.

Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, Willie Geist and Mike Barnicle continue the Morning Joe conversation about the details leading up to this week's mass elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, that left 21 people dead, including 19 children and two teachers. “There’s only two things that are vividly clear at this point: One is that the autopsy, the report of what happened that day, minute-by-minute, in terms of law enforcement people and the shooter himself, is going to be brutal. It’s going to be brutal. Just given the fact that there was…either half an hour or a 40-minute lapse between the time that he entered the classroom and the time that he was shot dead. The other aspect of this that’s going to come to fore is the idea that several people have mentioned, I think preposterously, since the shooting occurred: Is that things would have been different if teachers were armed, including from Governor Abbott’s press conference…one of the people on the stage, ‘it would have been different if teachers had been armed.’ So, we see what happens in terms of just a school police officer being confronted by someone with an assault weapon, with an AR-15, you know you’re out gunned. We don’t want to attribute motives until we find out all the facts; but a schoolteacher armed in a classroom certainly would have been more than outmatched,” says Barnicle following Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference about the massacre.

It's killing children. It's killing grandmothers. It’s extraordinarily easy to use. It's even easier to purchase. It’s a danger to democracy. It’s a danger to your family, to your children, and your grandchildren. But, we have a way to stop it. We have a way to slow down the murders of children, and here's how we do it: We establish, again, a ban on the sale of assault weapons. We establish, again, universal pre-checks, so they can't purchase weapons, and your elected officials, knowing this, seeing the evidence, seeing their own futures politically perhaps at stake, they rise up in a majority and they say, ‘no, no, we won't do it.’ That's where we are. You can feel the nuts and bolts of our democracy popping loose when they vote to continue insanity,” says Barnicle about the inaction from lawmakers on gun control. Join the conversation here.

“We are witnessing all day long here in America scenes from Ukraine that are mind-boggling in terms of their misery and their effect on people. Now, the relics of war, the memories of war, the casualties of war are going to be with the Ukrainian people for years to come—no matter their age, young and old. They’re going to remember the noise, the violence, the confusion, certainly the deaths. So, my question to you is: We live in a country where if the Apple store in Palo Alto was closed, there’d be hysteria. Could you please talk to the American people right now about your knowledge of the Ukrainians and their sense of liberty and freedom and their willingness to die on the street in front of their homes to save their country and to save the liberty for their own children?” asks veteran columnist Mike Barnicle of Michael McFaul, former U.S. Ambassador to Russia. Hear McFaul’s answer here.

ICYMI: Watch this Morning Joe conversation between Joe Scarborough and Mike Barnicle as they review and discuss President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address in which he called out Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and pledged to tame surging inflation and the COVID-19 pandemic. “In 62 minutes, you saw the Commander-in-Chief talking about Ukraine. You saw the President of the United States talking about domestic issues, about funding the police, about getting kids back into school. And you saw Joe Biden citizen, ‘happy birthday buddy’ to the young boy who was there with diabetes. You saw the expanse of his personality in full blossom: Angry about Ukraine, really angry about Putin, frustrated about empty office buildings here in New York and throughout the country, frustrated that more kids haven't been in school full time for a while, frustrated about the normal issues that plague American families: gas prices. You saw it all…in 62 minutes. I think it was a very, very solid night for the President of the United States, for the Commander-in-Chief and for Joe Biden, citizen of America,” says Barnicle.

“How is it that the Fulton County, Georgia, district attorney is managing to get this thing going on a local level with a grand jury when Mark Meadows, a former member of Congress, former chief of staff to a president of the United States, has flouted the subpoena, has flouted the idea of testifying before Congress, and no one has subpoenaed him to do it?” asks veteran journalist Mike Barnicle during this Morning Joe discussion with Willie Geist, Elise Jordan and Jonathan Lemire about the Fulton County, Georgia, criminal investigation into former President Donald Trump, which concerns accusations that Trump and his allies tried to improperly influence the outcome of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia, while the House Select Committee investigating January 6 insurrection hasn’t been tougher on getting former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to testify.

"And there should be an asterisk and an explanation of why it took them so long to attain Hall of Fame status on their plaque. You can't ignore the fact that two of the greatest players in the history of Major League Baseball are now off the ballot after ten years.” Watch more of the conversation here.

Watch this segment that includes an August 23, 2019 interview clip during which veteran columnist Mike Barnicle asks Meat Loaf about his music, storytelling and approach to live performing. “For years and still up until this moment, I think ‘Paradise by the Dashboard Light,’ is one of the greatest songs,” remarks Barnicle upon Meat Loaf’s death. "It’s an epic song—ever sung, ever written, ever composed and the act that Phil Rizzuto was in it—and Phil Rizzuto making the phony apology later that he didn’t really know what the song was all about. It’s just a historic song, a great song. I’m going to play it all day today,” says Barnicle about the song specifically written for New York Yankees announcer Phil Rizzuto using phrases he would actually say while announcing.

They crush their opponents, and they brag about their accomplishments. The Democrats are unable to do that….They sit there paralyzed by the differences between the progressives and the moderates in both the House and the Senate. But there are deliverables that the President ought to be talking about…things that have helped people, helped families survive through the virus, and it's still there: The promise is still there, but they seem unable to articulate it, and worse—unable to act on it,” says Barnicle about Democrats touting the achievements of Biden’s first year in office.

Low amounts of money—except they really add up, and they go right into the pockets of these people.”
