Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday morning, regular contributor Donny Deutsch was asked to compare the “dueling” town halls held by Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden on Thursday night and claimed the contrast could not have been starker for a public that has grown “exhausted” by the president.
Speaking with co-host Joe Scarborough, the analyst — who has known Trump for years — was pressed on how the two television events were likely perceived by voters.
“I’m just curious” host Scarborough began. “My attitude going into this thing was that any time the campaign’s about Donald Trump, Donald Trump loses — do you think that’s the case?”
“The contrast was interesting but I want to go to the viewers and how do you feel as you’re watching both and you watched Trump and the volume is up and the intensity is up and the energy and the manic-ness is up and then you turned it over to ABC and to Biden and everything got quieter,” Deutsch replied. “I think that’s a visceral contrast and I think the country is tired of the manic-ness.”
“I think the country is tired of that — you know, when you watch it, you feel your body, you go like this,” he said while stiffening up. “Then you go to Biden and everything kind of relaxes. I think the country is ready to relax.”
“You know, it’s interesting today Trump’s tweeting is about — I promise you they out-rated Biden two to one, three to one. Trump is going to be writing about that and that will work to his deficit,” he continued. “And the other two things that’s interesting: women and seniors. You know, if you’re a woman and you watched the interaction between him and Savannah, you feel his misogyny, like he put upon by having to answer questions from a woman. I think the seniors will feel that too. I think the country is exhausted and I think they’re just tired of the act.”
Donald Trump vows he ‘will never concede’ in late night conspiracy-filled rant
Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential to President-elect Joe Biden, but is still refusing to concede.
White House aides reportedly convinced him to allow Biden to begin his transition by telling him he did not need to use the word "concede."
But that word appeared to be on his mind late Monday night.
"What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?" Trump asked while continuing to lie about the election being corrupt.
Trump supporters are slowly coming to grips with his miserable defeat
This Monday was a reassuring day for democracy, but a devastating blow for supporters of President Donald Trump still holding out hope that he'll stay in office past January 2021.
Michigan certified the results of Joe Biden's victory, thwarting Trump's hope to overturn the outcome. And the General Services Administrator Emily Murphy finally provided Biden's team with the resources to fund his transition, a move even approved of by Trump himself, though he vowed to keep fighting:
Arizona Republican likens Trump’s loss to Japan getting nuked while losing WW II — but as a good thing
President Donald Trump on Monday allowed President-elect Joe Biden's transition to proceed -- while vowing he would never concede.
Despite Trump losing the election, some Trump supporters are refusing to accept the outcome.
One Arizona Republican in Congress, Paul Gosar, drew upon the historical knowledge him learned on his way to becoming a dentist in a bizarre analogy he posted on Twitter.
Gosar suggested the Trump movement would be like an Imperial Japanese soldier in World War II who refused to surrender until 1974.
