One of the most disrespectful things ever said about the POTUS on live TV, MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch said on “Morning Joe” that the President’s appearance is “one of the most repulsive physically human beings” he has ever seen.
“When he started with the ‘pencil neck’ Adam Schiff, it reminds me, and it’s just — sometimes we laugh. And I’ve said this before on the show, he’s just disgusting to look at. He’s obese. I wish we could put out that picture of him from behind, playing tennis or playing golf. He’s one of the [most] repulsive physically looking human I’ve ever seen. And yet — .”
He was interrupted by hosts Mika Brzezinsky and Joe Scarborough who realized the remarks would negatively reflect them and their show as well as the network.
“OK, OK, Donny. No, no, no,” Scarborough said. “Let’s let him talk that way.”
“This is just not unnecessary,” Brzezinski added in.
Deutsch tried to defend his remarks, starting, “Joe, but it’s important. That’s what a bully does. He makes fun of people’s physical imperfections. It’s ironic.”
