‘It’s pathetic at this point’: MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch said Trump’s tweets have lost their power to outrage

Published

MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch said President Donald Trump’s tweets had lost their power to stir outrage, and were now just punchlines to “pathetic” jokes.

The “Morning Joe” contributor reacted to Trump’s misspelled tweet denying “smocking gun” evidence of collusion and admitting that he knew about payments by attorney Michael Cohen to his mistresses before the election.

“He’s probably watching now as he’s eating his Count Chocula,” Deutsch said. “He knows a ‘smocking’ gun is pointed at him. These tweets will become more and more imbecilic, they’re going to make less and less sense.”

Deutsch said the president has only one audience in mind — his core base of supporters who will back him no matter what.

“He’ll talk to his 30 percent, 35 percent — ‘take to the streets they are trying to get rid of your president,'” Deutsch said. “That’s all that’s left for him. You’re going to see unhinged like we’ve never seen before.”

“He feels it, you can see he feels it — it’s pathetic,” he added. “None of us got angry at that. We all chuckled under our breath when we saw that.”

"The group that gathered at Butowsky’s home included a conspiracy theorist, a Fox reporter fighting for her career, a former private intelligence contractor married to star journalist Lara Logan, and a Democratic PR operative who lost his business in the face of sexual assault allegations."

Congress still has one big tool left to rein in Trump’s corruption: Oversight Committee Democrat

Published

on

Senate Republicans may have managed to quash the impeachment trial without calling forth any new witnesses or seriously considering the evidence against President Donald Trump. And the president may feel vindicated and largely invulnerable as a result.

But, Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Monday, that doesn't mean Democrats don't have one last big play to rein in the president's abuses of power. They can use the first and strongest authority delegated to them: the power of the purse.

"What can Democrats really do when it comes to oversight of the president?" asked Cooper. "I mean, now that impeachment is over, does seem like there are fewer and fewer guardrails, if any."
