And this is the result—this intemperate language, this violent language?” asks veteran columnist Mike Barnicle of Mark McKinnon, creator and co-host of THE CIRCUS on Showtime, during this Morning Joe discussion about the current violent rhetoric in American politics, following the Republican nominee for Arizona governor, Kari Lake, having mocked the attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband in her remarks made at a campaign event that was followed by laughter from the audience. Listen to McKinnon’s response here about Republicans having abandoned principle for power.
