Mike Barnicle on President Barack Obama’s speech in Dallas

MSNBC’s Morning Joe opened with excerpts of President Barack Obama’s speech in Dallas at the memorial for the five fallen officers, and the panel agreeing that both his speech, that of President George W. Bush, and Mike Barnicle’s column for The Daily Beast conveyed the right messages for the right time. They “made me cry… for everything that is lost in the rancor of 2016,” said panelist Nicolle Wallace. Added Barnicle: “Yesterday both presidents ..needed and did their jobs of lowering the temperature in this country and focusing on what is truly, truly the most important thing: Defining who we are.” Listen in on the conversation here.
