MSNBC Meltdown: ‘Can’t Survive’ ‘Machine Gun’ GOP and ‘Four More Years’ of Trump

Sometimes, MSNBC analysts manage to pack an unbelievable amount of stupid into a short amount of time. Such was the case on Tuesday as Donny Deutsch ranted about Republicans bringing metaphorical machine guns to the impeachment fight, the country not surviving Donald Trump, and how the “facts” and “laws” “are not going to protect us. 

Replying to Deadline: White House guest Heidi Przybla, Deutch fumed that simple “facts and the laws are not going to protect us right now” from Trump. So, what should be done instead? He continued, using violent imagry: “And the point being for the Democrats, we need to twist and meld and work. We are fighting against an enemy, the Republicans, with machine guns and we can’t bring a knife to it.” 

But, don’t fret. Lest you think Deutsch is suggesting anything radical, he added: “I’m not saying do anything dishonest. But we have to find a way to take what is happening there and make it so compelling to the voter because otherwise we’re going to get more years of Donald Trump. And we can’t survive for you more years.” 

Host Nicolle Wallace responded with a conspiratorial tone, hinting at the coming dictatorship of Trump: “Four? If you run your thread, could be 14.” 

Perhaps Deutsch believes his hyperbole. In October, he warned of “all-out dictator” Trump being like Nazi Joseph Goebbels. Later In the show, guest Al Sharpton blamed the failure of Kamala Harris’s campaign on… the media: 

NICOLLE WALLACE: Rev, you are on the show all the time. I don’t often hear you sound this angry. Was she treated badly by the DNC. Was she treated badly by the press? 

Al SHARPTON: I think she was definitely treated badly by the press. I’ve never seen a candidate taken apart the way she was in the last several days. Yes, there are organizational problems. Yes, there were financial problems. But you have people on that debate stage with no organization at all and the press is not writing about it. 

The press was against Harris? The same journalists who buried her laughing at a “retard” insult against the President? The same MSNBC that whined how it’s “racist” to decry reporters going shoppoing with Harris?

HEIDI PRZYBLA (NBC News correspondent) And the goal of Russian disinformation, and we all know this, is to confuse you. And what we’re seeing that is new here from 2016 is Republicans adopting that disinformation. You see the normalization here of, “Well, he may have done it, but Ukrainians meddled too.” And when you present these people with the facts, that Ukraine did not meddle, you had critical leaders from all over the world who were critical of Donald Trump, that does not define meddling. But still what you see here is an entire party that is complicit in that. 

DONNY DEUTSCH: Which tells you — 

PRZYBLA: Tells you  why we are where we are. 

DEUTSCH: And tells you that simply facts and the laws are not going to protect us right now. And the point being for the Democrats, we need to twist and meld and work. We are fighting against an enemy, the Republicans, with machine guns and we can’t bring a knife to it. And I’m not saying do anything dishonest. But we have to find a way to take what is happening there and make it so compelling to the voter because otherwise we’re going to get more years of Donald Trump. And we can’t survive for you more years. 

NICOLLE WALLACE: Four? If you run your thread, could be 14. 

WALLACE: Rev, you are on the show all the time. I don’t often hear you sound this angry. Was she treated badly by the DNC. Was she treated badly by the press? 

SHARPTON: I think she was definitely treated badly by the press. I’ve never seen a candidate taken apart the way she was in the last several days. Yes, there are organizational problems. Yes, there were financial problems. But you have people on that debate stage with no organization at all and the press is not writing about it.
