MSNBC’s Barnicle: Rewrite the Constitution and Remove Trump Now
Apparently, no idea is too crazy on Morning Joe. In a bizarre call to action on Wednesday, senior contributor and MSNBC veteran columnist Mike Barnicle took to the airwaves to declare his support for a rewrite of the Constitution and a replacement of the democratically elected President of the United States.
Here’s what was said:
WILLIE GEIST: Mike, first impressions as you watched that one-minute clip or so of the president yesterday speaking around the 100th birthday celebration for Nelson Mandela and the president making his way across Europe last week?
MIKE BARNICLE: Rewrite the constitution and have another president take over right now. Look, this is the distortion of, in daily life in American politics, it’s beyond the realm and thankfully former President Obama pointed out realities we all live under right now.
