Donny Deutsch of MSNBC’s Morning Joe had a total meltdown on the air this week over Trump, the border and the government shutdown. The problem in Deutsch’s view is that Trump is winning the battle of optics and will win politically as well.

MSNBC Meltdown Over Shutdown: ‘[Trump] Is Going to Win This!’
Committed liberal Donny Deutsch took to the Morning Joe airwaves on Thursday to warn his colleagues that Donald Trump is “winning” the government shutdown. Though no fan of the strategy, Deutsch grew frustrated at his fellow co-hosts, yelling, “He’s winning here! You have to understand he’s going to open the government. He’s going to declare an emergency. He’s going to say, ‘The Democrats closed it.’ He’s going to put the Democrats into court.”
Speaking directly to the Democrats, Deutsch predicted, “I hope Chuck and Nancy, today, you’re figuring it out because he’s going to win this!” After a perplexed Willie Geist wondered what that meant, the MSNBC panelist explained, “What he’s going to win is he’s going to say, ‘I opened the government. I took control. I put people back to work. I made us safer.’”

Deutsch makes a surprising amount of sense in how this could play out. Stay tuned to find out if he is right.
