Remembering Israeli President Shimon Peres

Following a massive stroke earlier this month, Israel has confirmed that former President and Prime Minister Shimon Peres has died at the age of 93. After the news of Peres’ death broke, President Obama issued a statement saying that Peres “changed the course of human history” in a statement that veteran columnist Mike Barnicle described as “truly extraordinary in itself.” Host Joe Scarborough responds to the recent tragedy by saying: “The great arc of his life was that he was seen as a man of peace that was fighting hard to actually bring peace to that troubled region.” Barnicle: “The arc of Shimon Peres’ career… is truly extraordinary from its origins to its end….A healing person in an extraordinarily combustible region of the world.” Follow along to hear the rest of this conversation.
