Mike Barnicle, contributor on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, had clearly had his fill of President Donald Trump for the week when he announced he was “sick” of the president and his unconstitutional shenanigans.
Barnicle hit his personal wall after host Joe Scarborough asked if there were any Republicans capable of taking on Trump in 2020.
“Joe, you know, look, it’s Friday, it’s almost 9:00, it’s the end of our week,” the notoriously crusty Barnicle said. “I’m sick of the Tweets. I’m sick of him.”
“I wish more people would reflect on the first line of the Oath of Office, ‘to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America,'” he continued. “The president has done neither. He attacks the Constitution of the United States on a daily basis.”
“He is, ladies and gentlemen, sad to say, unfit for the office he holds,” Barnicle added, sighing.
