Mike Barnicle shares his thoughts comparing Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump

On Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle shares his thoughts on comparisons between then Republican presidential candidate Ronald Reagan’s defining “I am paying for this microphone” moment in New Hampshire in 1980 and Donald Trump’s refusal to participate in Fox News’ next Republican debate. “Reagan, off that one moment, became the dominant figure in those primaries and certainly Donald Trump is the dominant figure in these primaries. And you’d have to think that what happened yesterday with the whole debate flap played strongly into his hands,” explains Mike. Watch the Reagan moment and listen to the discussion here. On MSNBC.
