On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, co-host Mika Brzezinski highlights Mike Barnicle’s latest column for the The Daily Beast, which takes a close look at Vice President Joe Biden’s character—one forged by tragedy, loss, family, and faith—and contrasts it with that of Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton.  “There is this one thing, this one nagging question that hovers above Hillary Clinton like a crop duster with a full tank of gas. It’s been there for nearly three decades. It’s always there, won’t go away and seems as if it’s never really fully answered and it is this: Who is she? Really, who is she? Nobody wonders who Joe Biden is,” writes Mike. Read Mike’s column at http://thebea.st/1VVSraH and watch the panel’s discussion surrounding Hillary Clinton.

“What happens now? The New England Patriots can’t understand why the NFL is going out of its way—and it does seem to be going out of its way—to destroy the reputation of one of its premiere players,” comments Mike Barnicle to NBC Sports’ Bob Costas on the NFL’s decision to uphold Brady’s four-game suspension over the Deflategate controversy. “Do you think this issue is being used to distract from the real problems the NFL has image-wise?,” asks Mike. Hear what Costas has to say about the nature of football and why he thinks the NFL’s punishment is excessive. Only on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.

Amid new speculation that Vice President Joe Biden will make another run for the presidency, Mike Barnicle’s latest column for The Daily Beast takes a close look at VP Biden’s character—one forged by tragedy, loss, family, and faith—and contrasts it with that of Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton. “He is, perhaps, the least complicated man in public life. It’s all right there, on display, for anyone and everyone to hear and see, to criticize or applaud. There is no filter, sometimes to his detriment. There is never any pretense. There is never, not ever, any attempt to hide or even disguise an emotion. Nobody wonders who Joe Biden is,” writes Mike of the Vice President. In contrast, Mike sums up the question nagging Hillary Clinton: “…it hovers above Hillary Clinton like a crop duster with a full tank of gas. It’s been there for nearly three decades. It’s always there, won’t go away and seems as if it’s never really fully answered and it is this: Who is she? Really, who is she?” Read the entire column and Mike’s profile of Joe Biden here.

He was not being dragged by the car. Within five seconds, he shot and killed that man,” says Mike. Watch the full report and conversation on recent police violence here. On MSNBC.
