While appearing on Friday’s edition of MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House,” left-wing tough-guy Donny Deutsch exploded, calling President Trump a dictator and advocating for a “revolution” to overthrow the government.
“Our democracy is under siege,” he said. “People need to start taking to the streets. This is a dictator.”
“This is not something to analyze anymore. This is not ‘Oh, well, good day for Trump.’ This is frightening stuff. If you are an American, if you are somebody who is 80 years old and sitting at home and you’ve watched the greatness of this country, you should be terrified, and if you’re a 12-year-old and the future is in front of you, this is terrifying,” he added.
Deutsch, the Washington Free Beacon said, didn’t want to talk about the controversial FISA memo because, he claimed, previous information was enough to prove Trump is “owned by Putin.”
The Free Beacon added:
“I don’t want to talk about the memo. We’ve got a dozen instances of clearly the Russians colluding in this election with top Trump officials. Two have already been convicted. We have a guy, a president who clearly is owned by Putin,” Deutsch said.
He went on to say the memo exists to give Trump permission to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
“This is frightening stuff. If you are an American, if you’re somebody who is 80 years old and sitting at home and you’ve watched the greatness of this country, you should be terrified, and if you’re a 12-year-old and the future is in front of you, this is terrifying. This is not time to analyze and pundit. People, we need a revolution at this point,” Deutsch said.
The report continued:
“So the job of the Congress is to understand that an attack by the Russians on the Clinton campaign is, in fact, an attack on the United States of America and our elections process,” he said.
Deutsch finished with a plea for people to resist Trump if he fires Rosenstein.
“I want to know what the people of this country are going to do if Rod Rosenstein is fired,” Deutsch said. “We can’t take this sitting down. Trump is winning. He’s winning, kids. This crazy, wacky guy is winning, and a year into this he has already, not chipped, has cut away at the things that protect us. Half of this country thinks the media totally lies. At this point, 44 percent of this country doesn’t trust the FBI.”
Deutsch finished by saying that in a year Trump may be willing to exercise his power to hurt those on MSNBC who criticize him.
“Guess what? A year from now this doesn’t change, maybe this table is in trouble we keep talking like this,” he said. “I’m not being dramatic. This is what’s happening, kids. I mean, and this guy is winning. This wacky, orange, poofy-haired guy is winning this game and we cannot depend on the Congress anymore. And if Rosenstein is fired, there needs to be people in the streets because it’s getting in scary territory, kids.”
People in the streets? Revolution? Is Deutsch actually calling for an armed revolt to overthrow the government because his precious Hillary Clinton lost the election? It sure sounds like it.
What’s scary is that no one on the MSNBC panel thought to rein Deutsch back a bit.
Here’s video of his insane rant, and an entire segment based on hate and fake news:
