Broad consensus on Morning Joe that to stop Bernie Sanders, Bloomberg should walk the plank and let Joe Biden compete with Sanders one-on-one. The "be gone, Bloomie" scenario was predicated on the assumption that Biden will handily win the South Carolina primary this Saturday.
Pity the poor liberal media. The Democrats staged a nasty debate last night, and the man who emerged the "big winner" was none other than... President Trump! So said Joe Scarborough and Donny Deutsch on today's Morning Joe. Making matters much worse, Donny divined that Bernie Sanders is "rolling" toward the nomination, yet has "no shot" at beating Trump. That left poor Donny "panicked. Absolutely panicked."
On Morning Joe, Democrat Donny Deutsch, panicked at the prospect of Bernie Sanders winning the nomination, says that Democrats who think Sanders can defeat President Trump are are "smoking something."
On Morning Joe, Edward Luce of the UK's Financial Times says if Bernie Sanders were the Democrat candidate, that unlike Jeremy Corbyn, he "wouldn't have the whiff of anti-Semitism about him." Donny Deutsch says that—a recent poll notwithstanding—neither Sanders nor Elizabeth Warren would "come close to beating Donald Trump."
For the feminist left, it's strictly verboten to call a woman candidate unlikable. Poor Donny Deutsch learned that lesson the hard way on today's Morning Joe. Commenting on Elizabeth Warren's precipitous poll drop, Deutsch attributed her problem not only to her unpopular plan to strip people of their private health insurance, but also to her "likability issue," noting her "high-school principal demeanor." But it wasn't long before Karine Jean-Pierre, an MSNBC analyst and spokesperson for the far-left MoveOn.org, rapped Donny across the knuckles.
On today's Morning Joe, Deutsch managed to flout virtually every "ism" taboo imaginable in criticizing the Republican congressmen who yesterday stormed Adam Schiff's closed-door impeachment inquiry. Here was Deutsch: "Those white guys, those middle-aged, boring, nerdy-looking white guys walk down that [sic] steps was pathetic . . . these pathetic wienies walking down that step . . . How pathetic. And Willie and I were talking, just as men, how do you go home and look at your wives and look at your children? Just pathetic, pathetic people."
For some time now, Morning Joe has been consumed by a visceral hatred of all things Trump. Today's show offered up yet two more examples. First, Donny Deutsch claimed "if you know Donald Trump, you know there isn't anyone he wouldn't throw -- he would throw his family under the bus. And I don't say that glibly." Joe Scarborough heartily agreed: "well of course!" A bit later, when Deutsch accused Scarborough of mocking melanoma, Scarborough replied: "I didn't mock cancer. I thought you were talking about your girlfriend, Melanomia."
On today's Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch urged the Democrats participating in tonight's debate to "assault" President Trump, whom Deutsch describes as an "ogre." Deutsch claims nothing else matters because "our democracy is under siege."
This could be the worst bit of campaign advice ever. On Friay's Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch proposed that, as their 2020 strategy, Democrats should "shame" swing voters into abandoning President Trump. Deutsch said Democrats need to tell swing voters that they can't support Trump just because they selectively like some aspects of his policies, like the tax cuts. They must be told that they get the "whole package," including the "blood" and the "racism."
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough expressed the fear that no Democrat presidential contender has the force to defeat President Trump, whom he said reminded him of both Fat Bastard from the Austin Powers movies and of Mussolini.
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, commenting on President Trump's tweets regarding The Squad, Donny Deutsch says: "we are heading to such a dangerous place. And guess what? You look at history, it can happen here. Maybe it’s the Jews next."
Perhaps trying to rival Stephen Colbert for most Trump-deranged evening host on television, MSNBC pundit and host Donny Deutsch went off the deep end while guest on Colbert’s The Late Show Tuesday over President Trump’s tweets against four Democrat congresswomen. Deutsch accused any American who voted for President Trump again in 2020 of accepting white racism, and claimed that we were living in “the most frightening time this country has ever faced.”
