In an epic rant on MSNBC Wednesday, political commentator Donny Deutsch went off telling white people that they need to wake up and prove they’re not racists.
“Enough is enough!” he began, looking directly into the camera. “I want to talk to the white people out there, okay. I want to talk to wealthy white people because I’ve had it. I’ve had discussions, when I talk to friends, people I know, [who say] ‘It’s good for the economy. It’s good for the economy.’ No, it’s time.”
He explained that if someone is working-class and they believe Trump will get them a job, they at least have an excuse.
“If you’re somebody who’s poor and you believe Donald Trump is going to get you a job, maybe you don’t have the luxury of a moral imperative, okay?” he continued. “But everybody else, shame on you at this point, enough. This is where you stand up. If you don’t, you own it.”
He said that President Donald Trump’s racism is no different than if they saw four white nationalists on the subway train screaming at an African American women to “go home or go back where you came from.”
“If you vote for Trump it’s like you’re going like this,” Deutsch said, hanging his head down in humiliation. “And own it. No more ‘he’s good for the economy.’ No more, ‘well they’re all jerks. He just says these things.'”
“We’re headed to such a dangerous place. Guess what, look at history. It can happen here. Maybe it’s the Jews. Oh, oh, I forgot, his daughter is married to a Jew,” he said mocking the excuse often given for why Trump can’t be anti-Semitic.
“I come from a group of people where it happened to, 6 million of them,” he continued. “I’m not saying Trump is that person, but every playbook that’s happening, every single playbook, creating the other, getting rich people to look the other way, getting people to not trust the press, getting a judicial system in your pocket, getting an entire branch of government, the legislative branch, the Republicans, to just March with you, act above the law, to say you’re putting your adversaries in jail. And now, ‘Hey you dark person, if you don’t like it here, go back from where you came.'”
He concluded, saying that it’s time for “white people, who maybe it’s not so great for your pocketbook, go in and look at your children and decide who you are.”

‘He blew it!’ Keith Olbermann erupts over Trump’s ‘stupid and dull’ debate performance — ‘the oxygen of his rise to power was gone’
On his new political show on YouTube, commentator Keith Olbermann ripped into President Donald Trump for his performance during the final presidential debate. Olbermann said that Trump "ran out of bullsh*t" as he tried to attack his rival Joe Biden.
"I don't mean to say that he was honest," he clarified. "It seems he was lying and manipulating reality at an even higher rate than usual. But with a few momentary exceptions, the salesmanship, the oxygen of his rise to power, was gone."
Olbermann said Trump needed "a debate knockout." Instead, the incumbent president just appeared "stupid and dull."
Mary Trump sheds light on the president’s bizarre pattern of psychological projection
President Donald Trump's niece, psychologist Mary Trump, appeared Friday on CNN to discuss her uncle's behavior during the recent president debate.
CNN host Anderson Cooper noted that Tony Schwartz, who is best known for ghostwriting "Trump: The Art of the Deal," has said "that when the president attacks people, the words he uses, the attacks he wages against other people are really things that are true about himself."
The CNN host said a similar dynamic was at play during the final presidential debate when Trump attacked Biden as being part of an organized crime family.
"It is amazing how much projection there is and I don't know if that's the term," Cooper said.
Trump gets schooled by a historian for comparing his achievements to Abraham Lincoln’s
During the final presidential debate on Thursday, President Donald Trump boasted that he had done more for Black Americans than any president since Abraham Lincoln. On Friday, historian Doris Kearns Goodwin appeared on CNN and blasted Trump for his remark.
“The most important thing in a time of crisis is for a president to be willing it take responsibility. One of FDR’s aides once said when things are going on right, people don't have to think a lot about the character demanded by the presidency. He can just stay in that old picture frame,” she told CNN host Chris Cuomo.
