Mike Barnicle on Boston’s Olympic bid

During Morning Joe’s Morning Papers segment, Mike Barnicle shares his reaction to Boston Mayor Marty Walsh single-handedly ending the U.S. Olympic Committee’s consideration of Boston as a possible candidate for the Olympics venue. “It was a good move by Mayor Marty Walsh. Everyone knew that the U.S. Olympic committee was going to take the Olympic bid from Boston anyway. A preemptive strike on the right side, actually,” says Mike of Mayor Walsh’s refusal to sign any document “that puts one dollar of taxpayer money on the line for one penny of overruns on the Olympics.” Listen to the panel’s discussion on the Olympics and other sports news here.
