It’s About Us

As the Morning Joe panel dissects President Donald Trump’s unexpected firing of FBI Director James Comey and the blowback that’s followed, the show’s veteran columnist Mike Barnicle offers: “This is no longer about Donald Trump. It’s no longer about James Comey. It’s about the presidency, which is being diminished on a daily basis by his behavior. It’s about the Constitution. It’s about the United States of America and the people of this country. That’s what it’s about. After all the talk is done, after all the verbiage has been piled on this, Jim Comey is no longer the FBI Director because the President of the United States knew instinctively he could not control him.”
