  • REPUBLICANS ARE NOT WILLING TO

  • REPUBLICANS ARE NOT WILLING TO

  • MURKOWSKI INCLUDING ONE WHERE HE

  • PROMISED TO CAMPAIGN AGAINST HER

  • WHEN SHE COMES UP FOR

  • RE-ELECTION.

  • >> I MADE THE COMMENTS THAT I

  • MADE.

  • I STAND BY THEM.

  • AND, AGAIN, I THINK IT'S

  • IMPORTANT THAT WE HAVE A

  • PRESIDENT WHO'S WORKING TO BRING

  • PEOPLE TOGETHER, BRING PEOPLE

  • TOGETHER, AND TONE AND WORDS

  • MATTER.

  • I CANNOT LIVE IN FEAR OF TWEETS.

  • THAT'S WHERE I AM NOW.

  • >> PRESIDENT TRUMP'S THREAT TO

  • CAMPAIGN AGAINST SENATOR MURKOWSKI CAME AFTER MURKOWSKI

  • ALSO SAID SHE IS GRAPPLING WITH

  • ALSO SAID SHE IS GRAPPLING WITH

  • WHETHER TO SUPPORT THE PRESIDENT

  • IN THE COMING ELECTIONS.

  • FIRST OF ALL, I JUST LOVE THE

  • IDEA OF PRESIDENT TRUMP

  • TRAVELING AND TRUDGING THROUGH

  • THE SNOWS OF ALASKA TO CAMPAIGN

  • AGAINST LISA MURKOWSKI IN A

  • REPUBLICAN PRIMARY IN A COUPLE

  • OF YEARS.

  • BUT IT'S SUCH A MEASURE OF OUR

  • TIMES WHEN IT'S AN ACT OF

  • COURAGE TO SPEAK OUT AS A

  • REPUBLICAN AGAINST PRESIDENT

  • TRUMP.

  • WE HEARD FROM A COUPLE OF

  • SENATORS IN THE WAKE OF WHAT

  • HAPPENED IN THE CLEARING OF

  • LAFAYETTE SQUARE, BEN SASSE

  • AMONG THEM.

  • THE FEAR IS THEY FEAR THE

  • PRESIDENT'S TWEET, THEY FEAR A

  • PRIMARY IF THEY'RE VIEWED AS

  • GOING AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP.

  • I POINTED OUT A FEW WEEKS AGO,

  • BEN SASSE WON HIS PRIMARY BY 50

  • POINTS, SO PERHAPS REPUBLICANS

  • SHOULD SPEAK THEIR CONSCIENCE

  • AND NOT WORRY ABOUT THE TWEETS

  • OR THE PRIMARY.

  • >> WILLIE, YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY

  • RIGHT.

  • SENATOR MURKOWSKI SAID SHE CAN'T

  • FEAR A TWEET.

  • WE SAW LAST WEEK MILITARY

  • GENERALS ACROSS THE BOARD REJECT

  • DONALD TRUMP'S THEATER OF DICTATORSHIP.

  • WE SAW THEM REJECT HIS CON

  • CONSCRIPTION OF THE MILITARY AND

  • WE ASKED THEN, WHERE ARE THE

  • STATE MEN AND WOMEN AND THE

  • REPUBLICAN SENATORS?

  • WE SAW THAT WONDERFULLY

  • DISTURBING, THAT'S A BETTER WAY

  • OF PUTTING IT, THAT DISTURBING

  • IMAGE OF THE SENATORS WALKING BY

  • KASIE HUNT WITHOUT SAYING A

  • WORD.

  • HERE WE HAVE IN SOME WAYS A

  • SENATOR SPEAKING HER MIND.

  • LET'S HOPE SHE ACTS ON IT IN

  • CONCRETE WAYS IN SOME WAYS TO

  • PROTECT OUR DEMOCRACY FROM WHAT

  • DONALD TRUMP HAS BEEN DOING AND

  • CONTINUES TO DO.

  • >> WE'LL SEE IF SOME OF THOSE

  • SENATORS ARE EMBOLDEN AS THE

  • PRESIDENT'S NUMBERS GO DOWN.

  • YOUR LATEST PIECE IS ENTITLED,

  • DEMOCRATS, STOP WORRYING WITH

  • LOSING.

  • FOCUS ON HOW YOU'RE LIKELY TO WIN.

  • WHAT IS YOUR ARGUMENT TO THEM?

  • >> LOOK, POLLS ARE A SNAPSHOT,

  • BUT WE GOT POLLS OVER THE

  • WEEKEND THAT SHOW JOE BIDEN WELL

  • AHEAD OF DONALD TRUMP IN THE

  • COMING ELECTION.

  • IF THE ELECTION WERE HELD TODAY,

  • I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANY

  • QUESTION BIDEN WOULD WIN

  • OVERWHELMINGLY.

  • THE DIRECTION THEY'RE GOING IN

  • IS NOT A GOOD DIRECTION FOR

  • DONALD TRUMP.

  • NOT BEING OVERCONFIDENT, NOT

  • TAKING ANYTHING FOR GRANTED, I

  • THINK DEMOCRATS SHOULD FOCUS ON

  • THE REALLY IMPORTANT THING SS TH

  • WILL HELP THEM WIN THIS ELECTION

  • INSTEAD OF HAND-WRINGING, WHICH

  • IS A NATIONAL PASTIME.

  • THEY SHOULD FOCUS ON, NUMBER

  • ONE, THE ENORMOUS PROTEST

  • MOVEMENT GOING ON IN THE STREETS

  • RIGHT NOW.

  • SOME HAVE BEEN TURNED INTO VOTER

  • REGISTRATION DRIVES.

  • ALL OF THEM SHOULD BE TURNED

  • INTO VOTER REGISTRATION DRIVES.

  • AND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY OUGHT

  • TO BE BUILDING -- NOT JUST

  • REGISTERING VOTERS BUT A GET OUT THE VOTE MACHINE FOR ELECTION

  • THE VOTE MACHINE FOR ELECTION

  • DAY.

  • THAT MEANS VOLT BY MAIL, HAVING

  • ENOUGH POLLING PLACES ON

  • ELECTION DAY.

  • THAT MEANS DEFENDING OUR

  • DEMOCRACY.

  • THAT'S TO BE THEIR FOCUS AND I

  • THINK THE POLLS WILL TAKE CARE

  • OF THEMSELVES.

  • THEY HAVE BEEN DOING PRETTY WELL

  • NOW.

  • >> IT'S VERY EARLY, FIVE MONTHS

  • OUT.

  • THE POLLS AT THIS MOMENT LOOK

  • GOOD FOR JOE BIDEN.

  • LONG WAY TO GO.

  • I WANT TO PLAY FOR YOU WHAT

  • WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY WAS

  • ASKED YESTERDAY, IF SHE AGREES

  • WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP'S SUPPORT

  • OF THE BLACK LIVES MATTER

  • MOVEMENT.

  • HERE'S HER RESPONSE.

  • >> YEAH, MITT ROMNEY CAN SAY

  • THREE WORDS OUTSIDE ON

  • PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE, BUT I WOULD

  • NOTE THIS, THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP

  • WON 8% OF THE BLACK VOTE AND

  • MITT ROMNEY WON 2% OF THE BLACK

  • VOTE.

  • >> YES, PRESIDENT TRUMP DIDDEN

  • WIN 8% OF THE BLACK VOTE IN THE

  • 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

  • ACCORDING TO EXIT POLLS, MITT

  • ROMNEY WON 6%, NOT 2% AS THEY

  • SAID.

  • MITT ROMNEY WAS RUNNING AGAINST

  • BARACK OBAMA IN THAT ELECTION.

  • WHAT AN UPSIDE DOWN WORLD WE'RE

  • LIVING IN WHEN YOU'RE BRAGGING ABOUT LOSING 92% OF THE BLACK

  • ABOUT LOSING 92% OF THE BLACK

  • VOTE IN AN ELECTION.

  • >> IT IS A BIZARRO WORLD FOR ALL

  • THOSE D.C. COMIC FANS.

  • WHENEVER DONALD TRUMP AND HIS

  • MINIONS SAY SOMETHING ABOUT

  • RACE, WE AUTD TO CLOSE OUR EARS.

  • THEY HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER IN

  • THIS DISCUSSION.

  • WE'RE TRYING TO BUILD A NEW

  • AMERICA.

  • THEY'RE TRYING TO HOLD ONTO AN

  • OLD ONE.

  • WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT FOR

  • WHAT IT IS.

  • >> MIGHT HAVE BEEN AN

  • OPPORTUNITY TO EMBRACE SOME OF

  • THE PEACEFUL MOVEMENT HAPPENING

  • IN THE STREETS INSTEAD AN ATTACK

  • ON MITT ROMNEY AND BRAGGING

  • ABOUT LOSING 92% OF THE BLACK

  • VOTE IN 2016.

  • >>> STILL AHEAD ON "MORNING

  • JOE," MORE ON THE BIG STORIES, AN ECONOMY RECESSION, ONGOING

REPUBLICANS ARE NOT WILLING TO
