Today’s quote comes to us from Donny Deutsch, a regular on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show, who rivals Donald Trump for his capacity to be loud and opinionated…but, unlike Trump, is rarely called out when he’s also dead wrong.
Here is Deutsch from Wednesday, February 2nd of last year, telling us about all the evidence of Trump collusion and Russian (more exactly, Putin) ownership of Trump that mueller would be uncovering to take him down:
“We’ve got a dozen instances of clearly the Russians colluding in this election with top Trump officials. Two have already been convicted. We have a guy, a president who clearly is owned by Putin.
“We basically now have a press release that’s been put out, that’s been twisted and mangled that now will give this president permission to fire Rosenstein who will now take over this investigation. Our democracy is under siege. People need to start taking to the streets. This is a dictator. This is not something to analyze anymore.”
Well, let’s see:
-mueller and his all-Democrat staff found no evidence of collusion with Russia. Not a dozen instances, not even one.
-There have not been any convictions based on Russian/Putin collusion with Trump;
-Trump has put sanctions on Putin and crippled the Russian economy by ramping up our energy production. If Putin owns him that’s a funny way of showing it;
-Rosenstein was never fired;
-Trump never took over for Rosenstein;
-People didn’t take to the streets (other than the antifa thugs who apparently have common ground with Deutsch) and the dictatorship is non-existent.
Other than that? A brilliant, spot-on analysis.
I award Donny Deutsch Quote Of The Day “honors” for showing us that, when it comes to over-the-top bloviating, Trump has met his match. And as for getting things wrong? In this case, Deutsch leaves Trump in the dust.
