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

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.”

‘It was all a hoax’: NYT destroys Donald Trump’s claims of business success in second blockbuster on his taxes

Published

on

President Donald Trump's tax returns have resulted in a second bombshell story by The New York Times.

"From the back seat of a stretch limousine heading to meet the first contestants for his new TV show “The Apprentice,” Donald J. Trump bragged that he was a billionaire who had overcome financial hardship. 'I used my brain, I used my negotiating skills and I worked it all out,” he told viewers. “Now, my company is bigger than it ever was and stronger than it ever was.' It was all a hoax," the newspaper reported Monday evening.

Donald Trump says Fox News’ Chris Wallace ‘will be controlled by the radical left’ moderating first debate with Joe Biden

Published

on

Chris Wallace, the Fox News anchor who will moderate the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, is a veteran newsman who has a reputation for playing it straight at a network where the opinion hosts skew to the right.

Wallace, a youthful-looking 72 years old, is the son of legendary "60 Minutes" reporter Mike Wallace, who was known for his pugnacious interviews on the CBS show.

The younger Wallace may not be quite as combative as his late father, but he does not shy away from confrontation.

That includes taking on Trump at a Rupert Murdoch-owned news network that critics have accused of being a cheerleader for the Republican president.

Obama’s DOJ had a plan to hold police accountable for abuse — but the Trump DOJ has undermined it

Published

It was caught on tape. A Seattle police officer lunged into the backseat of a patrol car. The Black woman detained inside had been combative, but she already had her hands cuffed behind her back. Still the cop punched her in the face, breaking an orbital bone.

The Seattle Police Department moved to fire the officer for excessive force, but in November 2018, the cop’s union lawyer was able to convince an arbitrator to overturn the termination.

The implications of the incident went beyond the officer. The entire Seattle Police Department was under an agreement reached with the Obama administration Department of Justice because its officers had a pattern of abuse similar to the incident in the patrol car. That agreement, known as a consent decree, forced the department under tight federal oversight until it reformed itself. The Seattle police had already made a string of changes, including ending unconstitutional stop-and-frisk and improving training.
