MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch plots graceful exit for Trump to avoid going down as ‘ex-tremendous loser president’

Published

MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch plotted a graceful exit for President Donald Trump before he badly loses his re-election.

The president floated the idea of delaying the Nov. 3 election, and the “Morning Joe” contributor agreed that signaled his very weak position against Joe Biden.

“Donald Trump’s brand has always stood for two things, strength or at least perceived strength — we know how weak he is — and winning,” Deutsch said. “What did Donald Trump show yesterday? He looks like a loser and looks weak. He’s basically telegraphing he’s going to lose.”

Host Joe Scarborough has suggested for weeks that Trump will quit rather than lose, and Deutsch has come around to that way of thinking.

“You said it a few weeks ago and I agree with you the more I think about it, there’s a real distinct chance that he quits,” Deutsch said. “I’ll tell you why, that’s what’s best for him. If he goes down as an epic loser, this will happen. Mark July 30 the same as June 1 as tantamount days for this presidency, if he says, ‘I’m going to step aside, I had an amazing three years,’ he has more power — Politico pointed it out yesterday — as an outsider with his new Trump Network than he does as an ex-tremendous loser president.”

“Two tells in the last week, he did a sports interview where he talked about how great his life was before the presidency,” Deutsch added, “and a couple weeks back, they had ‘telerallies,’ because he’s going to go into ‘telerallies’ after this. We know the best thing for Donald Trump is to step aside. You said it a few weeks ago and I’ve been jumping on it and people are saying no, you’re crazy. I think it’s a possibility, because for his brand, for the next 10 and 20 years it’s the best thing for him. That’s the best advice I give him.”

If Trump loses two more states it’s ‘ballgame over’: AP reporter

Published

Appearing on MSNBC's " Morning Joe," Associated Press White House correspondent Jonathan Lemire explained Donald Trump's chances of being re-elected have reached the point where, if he loses the electoral votes of one more, he will be out of luck and out of office.

Speaking with co-host Joe Scarborough, Lemire was asked where Trump stands in the battleground states he so desperately needs.

"Both campaigns agree that there are six battleground states to decide this election: Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, North Carolina, Florida," he began. "Now the president has to play defense and has had to spend resources and had to go the past week to places like Ohio, Texas -- Georgia is another one where he has to play defense. We don't see, outside of perhaps New Hampshire, a place where Democrats have to do the same now that the Trump campaign has ceded Michigan."

Trump’s executive orders are confusing and unconstitutional — and likely to hurt his own voters. He doesn’t care.

As we went into the weekend, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had washed his hands of the negotiations over the vitally necessary COVID-19 relief package, leaving Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and former Tea Party zealot turned White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to try to hash out a deal. Word was that the Democrats had come down from their demand for $3 trillion in various relief programs to $2 trillion, while the White House stuck to its offer of $1 trillion and not a penny more. By Friday, the Senate was going home and the talks had irretrievably stalled.

On Monday, Fox News reported that Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar is offering to share any potential COVID-19 vaccine with other countries, after it stabilizes public health in the United States.

"The U.S. will share any coronavirus vaccine it develops with the globe after American needs are met, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said Monday during a visit to Taiwan," reported Evie Fordham.

"Our first priority of course is to develop and produce enough quantity of safe and effective FDA-approved vaccines and therapeutics for use in the United States," said Azar. "But we anticipate having capacity that, once those needs are satisfied, those products would be available in the world community according to fair and equitable distributions that we would consult in the international community on ... After our departure from the WHO, we will work with others in the world community to find the appropriate vehicles for continuing to support, on a multilateral and bilateral basis, global public health on the order that the United States has done in the past."
