MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Donny Deutsch mocked President Donald Trump for insulting one of his fiercest critics as a “pencil neck.”
The president lobbed personal insults against Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) during a rally in Michigan, and the “Morning Joe” host wrote off the display as pathetic.
“He was in Michigan last night embarrassing himself again,” Scarborough said. “I really felt sorry for him, so sorry for him. Sort of a sad, sad — just a sad decline for the man.”
Scarborough pointed out that Trump’s support was only 31 percent in Michigan, which he won in 2016, and he said the president should be “panicking” over his chances for re-election.
“This a nosedive, politically, he’s not getting out of,” he said. “Maybe that’s why he looked so sad and pathetic last night and why he was swinging so wildly to no effect.”
Deutsch, who also knows the president personally, said Trump was left with nothing but personal insults against his enemies, which he said were just as hypocritical as his accusations of wrongdoing.
“When he started with the ‘pencil neck’ Adam Schiff, it reminds me,” Deutsch said. “Sometimes we laugh, but he’s just disgusting to look at. He’s obese — I wish you could put up that picture of him from behind when he’s playing tennis or playing golf. He’s one of the most repulsive, physically, looking human beings I’ve ever seen.”
Scarborough tried to head him off, but Deutsch said his cruel assessment of Trump’s physique was relevant.
“That’s what a bully does,” Deutsch said. “He makes fun of other people’s physical imperfections.”
