Barnicle: World Leaders Are Laughing At The US | Morning Joe | MSNBC
    COMING LATER. >> WE BEGIN WITH THOSE
    CONTROVERSIAL REMARKS FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP OVER WHETHER
    RUSSIA MEDDLED IN THE 2016 ELECTION.
    HE SPARKED CONFUSION AND CRITICISM TO COMMENTS HE MADE TO
    REPORTERS FOLLOWING A PRIVATE MEETING WITH RUSSIAN PRESIDENT
    VLADIMIR PUTIN AT THE APEX SUMMIT SATURDAY.
    WHEN ASKED IF RUSSIA'S ATTEMPT TO MEDDLE IN THE 2016 ELECTION,
    PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID EVERY TIME HE SEES ME HE SAYS, I DIDN'T DO
    THAT. AND I REALLY BELIEVE THAT.
    ON THE U.S. INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY, HE SAYS I MEAN, GIVE
    ME A BREAK. THEY ARE POLITICAL HACKS.
    SO YOU LOOK AT THAT AND YOU SEE PRESIDENT PUTIN WHO SAYS HE HAD
    NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT. FACING SHARP CRITICISM FROM
    REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS ALIKE. CLARIFYING HIS REMARKS DURING A
    PRESS CONFERENCE WITH THE VIETNAMESE PRESIDENT SUNDAY
    TRUMP SAID, QUOTE, AS TO WHETHER I BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I'M WITH
    OUR AGENCIES, ESPECIALLY AS CURRENTLY CONSTITUTED.
    NOT LEAVING IT THERE, THE PRESIDENT TOOK TO TWITTER TO
    RESPOND TO HIS CRITICS WRITING, QUOTE, WHEN WILL ALL THE HATERS
    AND FOOLS OUT THERE REALIZE THAT HAVING A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH
    RUSSIA IS A GOOD THING, NOT A BAD THING?
    THEY'RE ALWAYS PLAYING POLITICS. BAD FOR OUR COUNTRY.
    I WANT TO SOLVE NORTH KOREA. SYRIA, UKRAINE, TERRORISM AND
    RUSSIA CAN GREATLY HELP. AND THEN DOES THE FAKE NEWSEWS
    MEDIA WHEN CROOKED HILLARY CLINTON, SECRETARY OF STATE, WAS
    BEGGING RUSSIA TO BE OUR FRIEND WITH THE MISSPELLED RESET
    BUTTON? OBAMA TRIED ALSO BUT HE HAD ZERO
    CHEMISTRY WITH PUTIN. RICHARD HAAS, GO.
    >> THERE'S SO MUCH TO UNPACK THERE.
    >> I FOLLOWED YOU ON TWITTER. I SORT OF FEEL LIKE I READ
    YOUR -- I WON'T CALL IT A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN BUT YOUR EXAS

    >> HE CONTINUES TO GIVE RUSSIA A PASS.
    >> A PASS WOULD BE THE BENEFIT OF THE DEATH.
    THIS IS I BELIEVE THEM. >> TWO YEARS OF ESSENTIALLY NOT
    SEEING RUSSIA AS THE INTERNATIONAL SPOILER, AS THE
    INTERNATIONAL PROBLEM THAT THEY ARE.
    SECOND OF ALL, HE CONTINUES TO OVERPERSONALIZE RELATIONSHIPS
    WLRKS IT'S WITH THE LEADER WITH NORTH KOREA, PUTIN.
    SOMEHOW PERSONAL CHEMISTRY MATTERS.
    NO. COUNTRY ALSO FOLLOW THEIR OWN
    NATIONAL INTERESTS, WHICH IS WHAT HE SHOULD BE DOING.
    THIRD, HE INTRODUCES AMERICAN POLITICS TO TRASH PROFESSIONALS
    OVERSEAS, BRINGING UP HILLARY CLINTON AND SO FORTH.
    NO. YOU LEAVE THAT STUFF BEHIND.
    IF YOU EVER GO THERE, AND THE ANSWER IS YOU SHOULDN'T, YOU
    JUST DEAL WITH THE ISSUES. MEANTIME, ALL OF THIS IS
    OBSCURING SO MUCH OF WHAT HAPPENED IN THIS TRIP.
    THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES GOES TO ASIA, TAKES THE
    UNITED STATES OUT OF THE PRINCIPLE DYNAMIC IN THAT PART
    OF THE WORLD, WHICH IS A GLOBAL REGIONAL TRADING AGREEMENT.
    40% OF THE WORLD'S ECONOMY SHOULD BE THERE.
    WE'VE TAKEN OURSELVES OUT. WHO IS BENEFITING?
    CHINA. CHINA IS THE STRATEGIC
    BENEFICIARY OF THIS LATEST BOUT OF AMERICAN ISOLATIONISM AND
    PROTECTIONISM. THAT'S WHAT HISTORIANS ARE GOING
    TO WRITE. Ind WHY EVERYONE IS FOCUSED ON
    HOW INAPPROPRIATE THIS WAS ABOUT AMERICAN POLITICS AND KIM
    JONG-UN. IT WON'T HELP TO DEAL WITH NORTH
    KOREA. THE REAL STORY WILL BE THE
    UNITED STATES ABDICATING ITS POSITION.
    WE WILL PAY AN ECONOMIC AND STRATEGIC PRICE LITERALLY FOR
    DECADES TO COME. >> MAKING CHINA GREAT.
    >> I SENSE THA THAT YOU MAY HAV COMMENTS YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE
    ON THESE MATTERS. THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED
    STATES HAS BEEN ON THIS TRIP. ALMOST EVERY DAY HE HAS MANAGED
    TO TAKE SOME KIND OF SHOT AT HIS PREDECESSORS OR PEOPLE INVOLVED
    IN HIS CURRENT GOVERNMENT IN SOME CASES, CERTAINLY IN PAST
    GOVERNMENTS. IN THIS CASE I THOUGHT THE MOST
    SHOCKING THING ABOUT THIS ON SOME LEVEL WAS TO WAKE UP OVER
    THE WEEKEND AND HAVE HIM TAKE ONG CLAPPER, COMEY AND BRENNAN
    AND ESSENTIALLY FEEL LIKE, AGAIN, ONCE AGAIN HIS INSTINCT
    IS TO SIDE WITH VLADIMIR PUTIN OVER HIS ENTIRE INTELLIGENCE
    COMMUNITY. NOT JUST TO DO IT BUT ON FOREIGN
    SOIL. SPEAK A BIT TO THAT.
    >> COULD YOU IMAGINE IF BARACK OBAMA HAD DONE THIS, THE OUTCRY
    THAT THERE WOULD BE IN CONSERVATIVE MEDIA JUST FOR
    OBAMA WHEN HE CAMPAIGNED AND HE WAS IN EUROPE AND THE LARGE
    CROWDS. AND THAT WAS USED BY THE McCAIN
    CAMPAIGN BACK IN 2008. THE STANDARDS USED TO BE SO
    DIFFERENT. BIG PICTURES SO DISTURBING ABOUT
    THIS TRIP IS, YOU KNOW, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SEMI
    WELL-BEHAVED FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS AND NOT HAVING AS MANY
    OUTBURSTS AND EVERYONE IS LIKE THIS IS A GREAT TRIP.
    OUR STANDARDS HAVE GOTTEN SO LOW FOR WHAT WE EXPECT OF A
    PRESIDENT THAT IF HE'S NOT CAUSING SOME MAJOR INTERNATIONAL
    INCIDENT, WE ASSUME THAT'S A SUCCESS.
    >> THERE WAS A CHANGE IN HIS PHRASING.
    I THINK THAT'S IMPORTANT. AFTER MAKING A FEW CALLS OVER
    THE WEEKEND. CURRENTLY CONSTITUTED, TALKING
    ABOUT THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY, BECAUSE WHITE HOUSE
    OFFICIALS AND OTHERS SAID TO THE PRESIDENT YOU LIKE DIRECTOR MIKE
    POMPEO AT THE CIA ARE. >> REMINDING HIM.
    >> PRESIDENT TRUNT TRUMP, YOU APPOINTED THAT GUY.
    >> YOU PICKED THEM. >> HE'S YOUR GUY.
    >> NOT ONLY IS HE HIS GUY, MOST DAYS HE GIVES THE PRESIDENT THE
    PRESIDENTIAL DAILY BRIEFING. THEY HAVE A REAL RAPPORT.
    BECAUSE WHEN BANNON AND SO MANY PEOPLE THAT WERE THERE,
    WHISPERING IN HIS EAR, BECAUSE HE IS AT WAR WITH FORMER LEADERS
    OF THE FOREIGN POLICY. YOU DO STAND WITH POMPEO.
    YES, I DO, HE SAID PRIVATELY. THAT'S WHY HE SWITCHED IT AROUND
    A LITTLE BIT. THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THESE
    COMMENTS ABOUT COMEY AND CLAPPER ARE GOING TO END.
    THAT RAGE ABOUT WHAT THEY SAID PUBLICLY ABOUT HIM STILL EXIST.
    >> THE POMPEO RELATIONSHIP, HE'S IN A LOT OF TROUBLE.
    HE HAS HAD TWO MISSTEPS WHERE THE CIA HAS HAD TO CORRECT.
    >> HIS RHETORICAL BEHAVIOR HAS AFFECTED DEEPLY THE MORALE AT
    LANGLEY IN THE CIA. THEY WONDER IF HE'S A POLITICIAN
    FIRST OR DCI FIRST. BUT RICHARD MENTIONED HISTORY.
    AND HISTORY'S JUDGMENT ON ALL OF THIS.
    AND SADLY -- I TRULY REGRET TO SAY THIS, BUT I -- ALL WEEKEND

    THIS TRIP, WE CAN'T WAIT FOR HISTORY.
    THE JUDGMENT IS BEING MADE NOW. WORLD LEADERS ARE LAUGHING AT
    OUR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WHO STANDS ON FOREIGN
    SOIL, ATTACKS TWO CAREER INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS, BREN
    SBEN CLAPPER, CALLS THEM HACKS. ATTACKS A FORMER DIRECTOR OF THE
    FBI, CALLS HIM A LIAR. ALL OF THIS HAPPENING AFTERER
    REJECTS TPP THAT YOU ALLUDED TO AND WHILE HE REJECTS IT AND
    WHILE THEY ROLL OUT A RED CARPET AND THEY GIVE HIM A BIG CROWD
    AND HE'S THRILLED, SAYING THINGS LIKE NOBODY HAS EVER SEEN THIS
    BEFORE FOR ANY FOREIGN LEADER IN CHINA, THEY ARE PICKING OUR
    POCKETS. WE ARE THE UNITED STATES OF
    AMERICA AND, REGRETFULLY -- I REGRET TO SAY THIS.
    THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS WITHOUT A CLUE AS TO
    WHO WE ARE AND WHAT THIS COUNTRY REPRESENTS.
    >> MEMBERS OF THE -- >> WELL, MOVING ON FROM THAT.
    >> REALLY. >> UPLIFTING WAY TO START THE
    MORNING. >> BOB CORKER IS HAVING A
    HEARING TOMORROW TO TALK ABOUT THESE RESPONSIBILITIES AND SAID
    WHAT YOU JUST SAID. HE DOESN'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND
