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.

 

 

 

Sadly, these kinds of loony and absurd comments have become common practice at Morning Joe. With the absence of hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, the delegitimizing of the Trump administration and calls for his removal began earlier than usual.

Just one minute into the program, the manic Barnicle demanded: "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."

The troubling disregard for our founding documents has found a home at MSNBC, where the God-granted rights of life, liberty, and property mean nothing to the deranged hosts of a clearly disturbed group of guests. Trump Derangement Syndrome has reached a new low, where even the Constitution must be rewritten immediately in order to remove the President of the United States.

From South Africa to Europe, the world was presented with two very different visions of American presidents over the last several days. Good morning and welcome to "Morning Joe" It's Wednesday, July 18th.

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.
