He wrote for the Columbia Daily Spectator while at Columbia and later interned at the New York Daily News in 2001, “I was told that I would never be hired but that I could stay on as an intern for another few months.” When the September 11th attacks occurred a week later, he remained an intern and “was eventually brought on staff.”  Lemire had been there for over a decade. Lemire joined the Associated Press in 2013, where he covered New York City politics as well as the administrations of Donald Trump and Joe Biden. He gained media attention for his question to Trump during their July 2018 Helsinki summit about Russia’s Vladimir Putin, “Who do you believe, Putin or US intelligence?”

He is also POLITICO’s new White House Bureau Chief. He’s also working on a book called “THE BIG LIE: Election Chaos, Political Opportunism, and the State of American Politics After 2020,” which will be published by Flatiron Books in the fall of 2022. He previously worked as a White House reporter for The Associated Press before joining Politico. He covered two presidential administrations for the Associated Press, first Donald Trump’s and now Joe Biden’s. He broke scores of news stories and wrote authoritative analysis pieces while covering both presidents’ day-to-day operations, as well as the 2020 campaign, the nation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the January 6th, 2021 insurgency.

MSNBC named Lemire as the new host of its early morning news show Way Too Early in October 2021, succeeding Kasie Hunt as a full-time reporter. He was also named Politico’s White House bureau chief, beginning in November 2021. He interviewed President Trump in the Oval Office, accompanied the presidents on trips to the Middle East, Asia, and Europe, and drew attention for his news conference questions to Trump and Russia’s Vladimir Putin at their Helsinki summit in July 2018. In addition to hosting “Morning Joe,” Lemire is a regular on MSNBC shows such as “Deadline White House with Nicolle Wallace” and “The 11th Hour with Brian Williams.” He also covered Donald Trump’s first presidential campaign, including the candidate’s campaign kickoff at Trump Tower in June 2015 and nearly 100 rallies in 2016. He previously covered city and state politics in New York, including the 2013 mayoral election. Before joining the AP in 2013, he worked for the New York Daily News for more than a decade, covering the 2012 presidential election, City Hall, and the September 11th terrorist attacks.
