MSNBC has displayed their hatred for Trump’s base before. But Donny Deutsch’s rant on Friday’s Morning Joe really takes the cake.
It all started with co-host Mika Brzezinski having a major meltdown over a NPR/PBS/Marist poll showing ⅓ of Americans trusted President Trump “a great deal” in giving on coronavirus information. “It’s almost as if he’s purposefully trying to botch the response to this pandemic and yet a third, a third of the people who responded to the poll believe him?” she ranted.
The co-host pleaded with regular Morning Joe commentator, Donny Deutsch to tell her how ⅓ of Americans could trust what Trump says on coronavirus:
“What I want to understand is who is the one-third. I really — Donny, help me out here. I’m dead serious. I really, truly believe we’re at a breaking point in this country!” she said, voice breaking.
After the rest of the panel broadened the results of this poll to claim that 1/3 of Americans implicitly trust Trump on anything he says, Deutsch got around to answering her question:
DEUTSCH: How do one in three Americans still believe this man about corona or anything, the answer is only one thing: One in three Americans are racists, one in three Americans are terrified that by 2040, is not going to be majority white. That the black man or brown man or the yellow man or woman are going to come and take their jobs and take away their suburbs and scare them and its no coincidence yesterday Trump brought up Kamala Harris and the whole birtherism thing. That’s the only explanation. Because you can’t bring up the economy anymore. One in three Americans are racist in this country.
BRZEZINSKI: It’s pathetic!
Well, MSNBCers did call Trump’s base sadists and declare Hillary Clinton “dead on” about President Trump’s base being full of “deplorables,” so it seems this election season it’s their turn to be the ones shaming Trump voters.
If you don’t think it’s acceptable for a so-called journalist to be calling 1 in 3 Americans, racists, on national television tell Morning Joe’s advertisers here.
