“Morning Joe” regular guest Mike Barnicle slammed President Trump on Friday, saying his recent comments were “chaos unmatched in American history.”

During a Thursday White House press conference, Trump slammed Majority Leader of the Senate Mitch McConnell and threatened North Korea, while taking questions from the press.

Co-host Joe Scarborough set Barnicle up to go off on Friday, asking what he noticed when Trump talked “to the press for the first time in a long time,” nothing that “unsettling” things were said.

“You saw a level of chaos that’s been unmatched in presidential history. You saw a president of the United States literally try to go and an unstable regime into doing something completely crazy that would change our world forever. You saw a President of the United States who clearly doesn’t understand the concept of legislating in Washington,” Barnicle said.

Barnicle then said that Trump needs an ally in Washington.

“You do need, at some level, at some point, a friend. Some friend to help you, whether it’s Mitch McConnell, whoever it is, Paul Ryan, whoever it is,” Barnicle said. “You saw a level of selfishness and self-absorption, on the part of the President of the United States that is unmatched in American history.”

Barnicle concluded by saying, “Yesterday was truly beyond bizarre.”
