Why Trump Won Part X: The Insane Anti-Trump Commentary From MSNBC

Posted: Aug 25, 2017 6:30 PM

So, CNN’s Don Lemon pretty much self-destructedover President Trump’s Phoenix rally this week, calling the speech unhinged, questioning the president’s stability and fitness for office, and wondering if Trump was trying to start a civil war. Oh, and he might be a national security threat. It was an insane night of commentary that proved the president's point about the media. Yet, it pales in comparison to MSNBC guest Donny Deutsch's spewing of insanity over the various guest spots he’s filled for the network. The Washington Free Beacon clipped his greatest hits, where he said that Trump was “disgusting” to look at, even challenging Trump to a schoolyard-style fight that drew condemnation from his fellow panelists. The unhinged remarks could be represented from the reactions on the faces of Mark Halperin, Mike Barnicle, and BBC’s Katty Kay.

Deutsch, like the CNN panel post-Phoenix, also tried to diagnose Trump as a sociopath by reading the WikiHow definition of it. He also has gone into weird commentaries about Trump, men over 60 years of age, and erectile dysfunction concerning the president’s health. Halperin delivers some snark, saying, “Donny’s just all about facts and statistics.

The clip ends with Deutsch kissing MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski on the cheek, saying, “I just wanted to do that.”

“Wow, that was just weird,” added former Romney foreign policy adviser Dan Senor.

Bonus: Known mental health expert Donny Deutsch on Trump and sociopathy:

What a sociopath is, a condition that prevents people from adopting to ethical and behavioral standards and community. Sociopaths are usually extremely charming and charismatic. Sociopaths often time feel entitled to certain positions, people, and things. They believe their own beliefs and opinions are the absolute authority and disregard others. They’re rarely shy and insecure and at a loss for words. They have trouble suppressing emotional responses like anger and impatience or annoyance. They do bizarre, risky, and outrageous things without assessing repercussions. They’re professional liars. They fabricate stories and make outlandish, untruthful statements, and they get comfortable with their lying. They get bored easily and require constant stimulation. Sociopaths are incapable of experiencing guilt or shame for their actions. They’re manipulative. They may try to influence and dominate people to gain positions of leadership. They have a hard time dealing with criticism.
