MSNBC's Donny Deutsch on Kavanaugh: Rich Guys Don't 'Get' It, Poor Guys Do

October 1st, 2018 7:27 AM

So there was Donny Deutsch in the Hamptons this past weekend, watching football on his fine-Corinthian-leather couch while knocking back Bud Lights ["for the many, not the few"] with his posse of "lower-on-the-income-curve" lads, discussing the finer points of the intersection of contemporary sexual mores and politics.

That's the image that came to mind, listening to Deutsch on today's Morning Joe. Displaying a sort of reverse class snobbery/virtue signaling, Donny declared:

"That Kavanaugh performance, that as a man, I was embarrassed for him. It was the ultimate display of white entitlement . . .  As I talked to men over the weekend, I find that the higher you go on the income curve, the more men are like: 'why, you know, well, we all did this, we all did this in one form or another.' Still not getting it. Women are getting it. And I find the lower you go on the income curve, men are getting it."

Because, you know, when you want to put your finger on the pulse of working men in the heartland, and their views on sex and "white entitlement," Donny Deutsch is your go-to guy. Donny, do us a favor: go back to your fancy Manhattan pad, and carefully uncork a Premier Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux.

Actually, that sounds good: save me a glass!
