“It’s a sad day for our country"

Morning Joe’s Mika Brzezinski and Mike Barnicle play for viewers and discuss the emotional words of Sacramento Kings head coach Mike Brown after the team’s win last night over the Utah Jazz, when he wanted to talk about the horrendous breaking news of the mass murder in Lewiston, Maine, instead of basketball. "It’s a sad day. It’s a sad day for our country. It’s a sad day in this world," the coach said. "And, until we decide to do something about it, the powers that be, this is going to keep happening. And our kids are not going to be able to enjoy what our kids are about because we don’t know how to fix a problem that’s right in front of us.” Adds Barnicle: "Lewiston, Maine, population 37,000, and we sit here, this great country of ours, greatest country in the history of the world, and we can do nothing about this continually happening week after week after week here in the United States of America."
