Joe: GOP, Moderates, Dems, And Women Sent President Donald Trump A Message | Morning Joe | MSNBC
    CASEY HUNT IS WITH US. GOOD MORNING.
    >> GOOD MORNING. >> JOE, WOW, SOMETHING'S UP FOR
    US, A VERY, VERY GOOD MORNING FOR DEMOCRATS.
    >> A VERY GOOD MORNING FOR DEMOCRATS.
    THEY HAVEN'T HAD A GOOD MORNING LIKE THIS, PROBABLY SINCE BARACK
    OBAMA GOT RE-ELECTED IN 2012. THIS HAS BEEN A LONG TIME COMING
    FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND THEY ACTUALLY, YOU CAN SORT OF
    SEE THE CLOUDS OF DOOM COMING IN AGAIN A COUPLE DAYS AGO,
    REMEMBER WE WENT AROUND THE PANEL MONDAY MORNING, ASKED
    EVERYBODY WHO THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING TO WIN, ED GILLESPIE,
    ED GILLESPIE, EVERYBODY WAS SAYING IT.
    BY YESTERDAY AFTERNOON, YOU STARTED HEARING SORT OF ORDER
    RESTORED, A LOT OF CONSERVATIVES WERE SAYING, WAIT A SECOND, YOU
    KNOW, NORTHAM MAY END UP WINNING.
    THE SAME THING WITH DEMOCRATS. IT WAS BIG.
    THIS IS BIG. YOU LOOK AT THESE RACES, THEY
    CALL THESE OFF YEAR RACES BUT IN VIRGINIA THEY ALWAYS MATTER,
    1993, GEORGE ALLEN'S LANDSLIDE VICTORY REPLACING DOUG WILDER.
    >> THAT LED TO REPUBLICANS, FORESHADOWED THEM WINNING A HUGE
    LANDSLIDE. 2009, BOB McDONALD'S WIN,
    ANOTHER LANDSLIDE A YEAR AFTER BARACK OBAMA ELECTED PRESIDENT.
    SUGGESTED THE TEA PARTY REVOLUTION WAS COMING IN 2010.
    BUT I THINK YOU HAVE TO GO BACK TO AND I WROTE THE DATE DOWN
    HERE, JANUARY 19th, 2010 WHEN SCOTT BROWN WON THAT SPECIAL
    SEAT FOR TED KENNEDY, AFTER BOB McDONALD WAS ELECTED, DEFINE ONE
    OFF YEAR ELECTION NIGHT THAT'S SO SHIFTED THE LANDSCAPE OF
    AMERICAN POLITICS AND THE EXPECTATIONS OF AMERICAN
    POLITICS AND SUGGESTED TO THE PARTY IN POWER THAT THEY WERE IN
    TROUBLE AND MIKA, WE CAN ALL LOOK AT ED GILLESPIE'S LOSS.
    WE CAN LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED IN MAINE, WE CAN LOOK ALL ACROSS
    THE COUNTRY. BUT IF YOU WANT A MICROCOMES OF
    WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TALKINGING ABOUT FOR YEARS THE DEMOCRATIC
    PARTY'S PROBLEMS WITH LOSING A THOUSAND LEGISLATIVE SEATS
    NATIONWIDE AND SAYING THEIR PROBLEM IS NOT JUST WITH HILLARY
    CLINTON, THEIR PROBLEM WAS MUCH LARGER, WELL, LAST NIGHT, DONALD
    TRUMP CAN TRY TO BLAME ED GILLESPIE, A GUY HE AND STEVE
    BANNON GOT BEHIND ALL TIME. YOU CAN BLAME ED GILLESPIE ALL
    YOU WANT. GUESS WHAT?
    THE REAL PROBLEM IS WHAT HAPPENED IN THE VIRGINIA HOUSE
    OF DELEGATES. IT WAS A MASSIVE LANDSLIDE, ALL
    AGREE CROSS THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA.
    NOBODY EXPECTED THIS. EVEN THE SMART EFFORT PEOPLE IN
    POLITICS NEVER SAW THIS COMING. THIS WAS A REPUDIATION OF DONALD
    TRUMP THAT WILL BE HEARD AROUND VIRGINIA, AROUND THE NATION AND,
    YES, AROUND THE WORLD. THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING.
    THEY ALSO SAW WHAT HAPPENED IN VIRGINIA YESTERDAY.
    THEY MAY JUST BELIEVE THAT MAYBE SOME EQUILLIBRIUM IS RETURNING
    TO AMERICAN POLITICS. >> AND I THINK THERE IS SOME
    FORCES FOR GUN CONTROL. THERE IS SOME INCREDIBLE DIVERSE
    CANDIDATES WHO WERE ELECTED LAST NIGHT.
    INCREDIBLE EMOTIONAL STORIES AS WELL, INCLUDING THE BOYFRIEND OF
    THE REPORTER WHO WAS JUN GUNNED DOWN, WHO WON, HE WAS AN
    UNDERDOG, WE WILL BE GETTING TO THAT, THAT STORY.
    IT WAS AN AN INCREDIBLE NIGHT ON ALL LEVELS AND A REPUDIATION OF
    DONALD TRUMP ACCORDING TO REPUBLICANS.
    >> THE GILLESPIE CAMPAIGN WAS WHISPERING TO REPORTERS THIS
    VOTE WAS A REPUDIATION OF PRESIDENT TRUMP.
    PRESIDENT TRUMP WEIGHED IN LAST NIGHT FROM ASIA TO SLAM ED
    GILLESPIE AFTER HIS LOSS. TRUMP TWEETED QUOTE --
    . >> U.S. CONGRESSPMAN SCOTT
    TAYLOR, A REPUBLICAN FROM VIRGINIA BEACH TOLD THE "NEW
    YORK TIMES" HE FAULTED PRESIDENT TRUMP'S DIVISIVE RHETORIC FOR
    PROPELLING THE PARTY TO DEFEAT. HE SAID I DO BELIEVE THIS IS A
    REFERENDUM OPEN THIS ADMINISTRATION.
    DEMOCRATS TURNED OUT TONIGHT. I'M SURE THERE WERE REPUBLICANS
    THAT SPOKE LOUDLY AND CLEARLY AS WELL, HE ADDED DOWN THE BALLOT,
    QUOTE, I KNOW FOLKS GOING AGAINST CANDIDATES I NEVER EVEN
    HEARD OF. JOE, YOU POINTED TO THIS,
    DEMOCRATS WERE SHOCKED BY WHAT HAPPENED.
    ONE DEMOCRATIC OPERATIVE SAID, THIS WAS NOT A WAVE, THIS WAS A
    TSUNAMI, IN FACT, IT HAS BEEN SINCE 1975 THE DEMOCRATS HAD ANY
    EVEN MORE THAN FIVE VOTES E SEATS IN THE HOUSE IN AN
    ELECTION LIKE THIS. >> UNBELIEVABLE AND JOHN
    HEILEMANN IN A HOUSE OF DELEGATES, JERRY MANNEDERRED IN
    SUCH A WAY NOT TO REPRESENT THE STATE AND STILL EVEN GOING
    AGAINST ALL THOSE ODDS, YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE TO JUST SAY AND I
    DON'T USUALLY WE ALWAYS GET PAID TO LOOK AT CANDIDATES AND THEIR
    CAMPAIGNS. LET'S FACE IT, RALPH NORTHAM
    WON. HE SHOULD BE FEELING GREAT.
    BUT THE MORNING AFTER, LET'S TALK ABOUT IT.
    EVERYBODY ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE SAID THIS GUY RAN ONE OF
    THE WORST CLOSING CAMPAIGNS THEY HAD SEEN IN RECENT MEMORY AND
    YET, VIRGINIA VOTERS STOOD IN THE RAIN.
    THEY STOOD IN LONG LINES. I HAD TWEET AT ME, THERE WAS A
    LONG LINE, I DO BELIEVE THAT NEXT YEAR MAY BE THE YEAR OF
    QUOTE WOMEN VOTERS AND WOMEN CANDIDATES BECAUSE THEY HEARD
    STORIES OF WOMEN STANDING IN THE RAIN IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA IN
    LONG LINES AND THEY WEREN'T GOING TO MOVE UNTIL THEY GOT
    THEIR VOTE AGAINST DONALD TRUMP. JUST LIKE LAST YEAR, I STILL
    SAY, THAT I LEX WASN'T ABOUT DONALD TRUMP AS MUCH AS IT WAS
    HILLARY CLINTON. LAST NIGHT WASN'T AS MUCH ABOUT
    RALPH NORTHAM AS IT WAS VOTERS, REPUBLICANS, MODERATES,
    DEMOCRATS AND WOMEN SENDING A MESSAGE TO DONALD TRUMP.
    >> YEAH, I MEAN, YOU LOOK AT, I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU SAID,
    JOE, NORTHAM RAN NOT A PARTICULARLY GREAT RACE.
    HE DIDN'T WIN BY A LITTLE BIT. I YESTERDAY WAS ON THE TV SAYING
    I WAS HERE FOR PEOPLE IN THE COMMONWEALTH SAYING, YOU KNOW,
    GILLESPIE'S MOMENTUM IS OVERSTATED.
    NORTHAM MAY WIN A LITTLE TIERT THAN A YEAR AGO.
    YET HE WON BY NINE POINTS HAVING WON A NOT GREAT RACE, HE WON BY
    NINE POINTS. THAT'S OUTSIDE, THERE WAS NO
    ONE, REPUBLICAN, DEMOCRAT, NO ONE WAS SUGGESTING THAT KIND OF
    A VICTORY FOR HIM. YOU LOOK AT WHERE HE WON THE
    RACE, ED GILLESPIE MANAGED TO TURN IF TRUMP-LIKE NUMBERS IN
    THE SOUTHWESTERN PART OF THE STATE, WHICH IS WHAT HE WANTED
    TO DO. HIS SECOND GOAL WAS TO TRY TO
    LIMIT THE DAMAGE IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA IN THOSE SUBURBS FILLED
    WITH WOMEN VOTERS AND PEOPLE ALIEN FATED BY DONALD TRUMP THAT
    YOU REFER TO, NOT ONLY DID HE LIMIT HIS ADVANTAGE THERE HE GOT
    SLAUGHTERED THERE BY WORSE TAN DONALD TRUMP GOT SLAUGHTERED
    THERE, HE PERFORMED WAY WORSE THAN --
    >> JOHN, THIS IS THE THING. THIS IS A WARNING FOR
    REPUBLICANS IN 2017 AND 2018. BECAUSE I KNOW YOU KNOW THE
    NUMBERS HERE, TOUCH ON THIS, FEW WILL.
    ED GILLESPIE, WHO GOT SLAUGHTERED, SWAMPED IN NORTHERN
    VIRGINIA. >> YEP.
    >> THIS IS A GUY WHENE WASN'T PRETENDING TO BE DONALD TRUMP
    SHOCKED EVERYBODY IN HIS SENATE CAMPAIGN AND OUTPERFORMED WHAT
    EVERYBODY THOUGHT HE WOULD DO ACROSS THE STATE OF VIRGINIA AND
    EVEN NORTHERN VIRGINIA. >> THREE YEARS AGO, HE WON A
    COUNTY IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA. HE WON THAT THREE YEARS AGO HE
    GOT BEAT DOUBLE DIGITS BY NORTHAM.
    THIS WILL SEND A MESSAGE, WE TALK ABOUT HOW THESE MID-TERM
    ELECTIONS MOVE IN WAVES. I THINK IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT.
    ONE IS ON THE BASIS OF YOU STARTED.
    YOU TEEN REPUBLICAN NBC NEWS CORRESPONDENT RETIRE IN THE
    HOUSE. ON THE BASIS OF REPUBLICAN
    ITSELF, THERE IS PROBABLY TWO DOZEN REPUBLICAN INCUMBENTS WHO
    HAVE BEEN CONTEMPLATING RETIREMENT, WAITING TO SEE WHAT
    WAS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THESEFF YEAR ELECTIONS AND READ THE WIND
    AND WET MORE GENERALLY. I THINK MOST OF THOSE PEOPLE
    WILL RETIRE AND LOOK AT THE SITUATION AND SAY, THIS IS HARD
    FOR US. WE WILL SEE A BUNCH OF
    REPUBLICANS IN MODERATE SAY ITS SEATS AND SOME IN SAFE SEATS
    SAYING WE'RE NOT GETTING ANYTHING DONE, WE GOT TO GET
    OUT. SECONDLY, THEY WILL BE ABLE TO
    RECRUIT CANDIDATES. THIS IS SUCH A BOOST FOR TOM
    PEREZ, HIS STRATEGY. YOU WILL SEE NOW CANDIDATE
    QUALITY, RECRUITMENT IS GOING TO GO WAY UP.
    WE WILL SEE IT IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.
    >> THAT WILL MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE, BEYOND THE NATIONAL
    MOVE, THE NATIONAL ELECTORATE. THERE WILL BE PRACTICAL
    CONSEQUENCES THAT WILL NARROW A LOT WHO CONTROLS CONGRESS IN
    2018 FROM I MEAN, THE DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN ON A FIVE-YEAR LOSING
    STREAK. THEY HAVE LOST SO MANY RACES
    THEY SHOULD HAVE WON CASEY HUNT. NOW YOU HAVE PEOPLE LIKE FRANK
    LOBIONDO WHO CAME IN WITH ME IN 1994 ANNOUNCED HE'S LEAVING, PUT
    THAT IN THE BLUE COLUMN. >> THAT WILL BE A DEMOCRATIC
    PICKUP UNLESS SOMETHING REALLY DRAMATIC HAPPENS IN THAT SEAT.
    AND TALK TO -- THE IMPACT THAT THIS VASE GOING TO HAVE ON THE
    HILL. I KNOW WHEN I WAS A MEMBER AND
    THINGS LIKE THIS WOULD HAPPEN, YOU WOULD LOOK DOWN IN THE WELL
    AND EVERYBODY LOOKING AT EACH OTHER AND GO HOLY COW, WE SHALL
    SAY, CAN YOU BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED?
    THERE IS NOT A SIX-MONTH ADJUSTMENT OR NIP-MONTH
    ADJUSTMENT, IT'S LIKE, OKAY, I GOT TO PUT MY HEAD DOWN, I WILL
    NOT SAY ALL THE CRAZY THINGS THAT TRUMP WANTS ME TO SAY.
    TALK ABOUT HOW THIS CHANGES SO MUCH ON CAPITOL HILL?
    >> I GOT TO TELL YOU, JOE, I'M REALLY EXCITED TO GO TO WORK
    TODAY AND TALK TO THESE MEMBERS. IN VIRGINIA, THERE ARE SUBURBAN
    MEMBERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY IN OTHER PLACES, ONE MEMBER TEXTING
    ME ABOUT DOWN BALLOT RACES, CLERK OF THE COURTS, SAYING
    PHILADELPHIANS LOSING BY EIGHT TO TEN POINTS IN RACES THEY
    WOULD NORMALLY BE PICKING WITH 57% OF THE VOTE.
    THIS IS NOT SOMETHING CONFINED TO VIRGINIA.
    I THINK THAT YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT IN THAT IT'S GOING TO
    DRIVE RETIREMENTS, POTENTIALLY. IT WILL MAKE IT HARDER FOR
    REPUBLICAN LEADERS TO KEEP ALL OF THEIR REPUBLICANS ON BOARD TO
    TRY TO PASS THINGS. REMEMBER THE STRATEGY RIGHT NOW
    ON THIS PIG TICKET TAX REFORM IS STILL TO DO IT ONLY WITH
    REPUBLICAN VOTES. >> THAT IS SUDDENLY GOING TO GET
    TO BE A MUCH HARDER ARGUMENT TO MAKE.
    BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SEE, WHAT HAPPENED HERE?
    THIS WILL EVEN I THINK ON THE NAAT SIDE, THIS HAS TO GIVE
    CLAIRE McCASKILL A LITTLE ASSURANCE, IF I STICK IN THE
    MIDDLE I CAN POTENTIALLY ONE U RUN AGAINST THIS PRESIDENT.
    IT'S A DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENT. I THINK THE SWEEPING NATURE OF
    THIS, I THINK, IS GOING TO MAKE IT FEEL, IS GOING TO MAKE A
    FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENCE IN
