MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch recently used a very threatening expression while talking about President Trump. A noose is used in lynchings. It’s worth noting that if anyone had used the expression while talking about President Obama, they would be immediately labeled a racist for the historic implications.
The Washington Examiner has the transcript:
“The Republicans, the cowardice of them – if they’re smart – they’re going to have to kind of pull up their big boy or girl pants at this point, understand they will be branded forever. All of the chickens are going to come to roost and all of these people who have been quiet, who have stood by, they are going to pay for it. This is a moment in time and if they hide at this moment in time the rest of their political careers will pay. I hope there is Republicans listening, this is not a gray issue, this is a black and white. At the very least you need to say, no, we’re not going to not hear evil. We need to listen. I believe Kavanaugh is dead at this point. I would be shocked if he’s ever a Supreme Court justice….
“Obviously with Corker and Flake, they’ve been the brave ones. They’re retiring and Murkowski and Collins, obviously, with an extra sensitivity to women. It might be a matter of time, particularly if you connect the dots to Manafort turning and you really feel the noose tightening around Trump. You just feel it, you see it, you know it’s happening, that some other Republicans may start to act brave even if it’s just simple selfish interests. It might be — I was asking Senator Durbin this, ‘are you getting the feeling some senators are feeling it’s okay to come out from under the rock right now?
Watch the video:
Deutsch has a history of saying inappropriate things on the air, particularly about Trump. And he never seems to suffer any consequences.
