On Morning Joe, the panel discusses Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s recent critiques about local and federal law enforcement agencies' failure to thwart the latest New York bombing attack. Trump said law enforcement officials "know who a lot of these people are... [but] they're afraid to do anything about it." To which Morning Joe senior contributor Mike Barnicle responded: “If you consider the time factor here…[in] less than 24 hours… a combination of the New York Police Department, the FBI, and the New Jersey Police Departments had tracked down and apprehended the suspect of this bombing... No cop is afraid to do this.” Follow along to hear the rest of the conversation.

In the "What Have We Learned Today" segment of Morning Joe, host Mika Brzezinski literally "cut the mic" on regular contributors Donny Deutsch and Mike Barnicle after this exchange: “Mika, though I love [her], you are insensitive to the medical needs of between 40 percent and 60 percent of men over 70 in this country, and I was surprised by that.” Retorted Brzezinski: “Can I tell you, for my insensitivity, you’ve got big business on your side because you men get that covered by insurance. Okay? And you wouldn’t believe what’s not covered by insurance for us women." To which Barnicle responded, “What is that?” Hear the answer (which Deutsch says is his nickname) and watch the spirited exchange here. Only on MSNBC.
