MSNBC Host Donny Deutsch appeared on the network’s “Morning Joe” program on Friday and predicted that former president Donald Trump would be indicted before he could run for president in 2024.

During his appearance with Host Mika Brzezinski, Deutsch declared Trump as a “losing proposition” for the GOP, who will be “unelectable” by the next presidential election cycle, and hurled the standard insults at Trump supporters.

“Donald Trump is a losing proposition. Those images that we were playing of people storming the Capitol, that’s all you have to say about Donald Trump. So what is so insane about the Republicans, and by the way, he will be indicted between now and the next election, he is unelectable. Donald Trump is unelectable.”

“You are fools. Forget right or wrong, you are losers with Donald Trump, get that in your thick dumb skulls.” 

The segment began with pollster Frank Luntz, who claimed that Trump could cost the GOP the 2022 elections because of his comments about stolen elections. Deutsch agreed before launching into his colorful speech.

And a small reminder that dire predictions of imprisonment for Donald Trump are nothing new for Deutsch. He was predicting the same thing back in February.

Not What The Facts Are Saying

Donny Deutsch isn’t alone in his thinking.

Back in March, former Nixon White House Counsel during the Watergate scandal John Dean also predicted that it was only a mater of days before Trump would be facing charges. 

Donny Deutsch and the rest of the gang at MSNBC may be anticipating some sort of indictment for something.

But actual polling data and just talking to Republicans about where they think the party should be heading is different than the Luntz-Deutsch view.

Eight days after leaving office, Donald Trump was up in the polls. A Rasmussen poll from Jan. 27, said that 56% of Republican voters thought Trump should run again in 2024, or at the very least, have some political influence. 

At the time, there was also talk of a third party. Fifty-three percent said they thought it was a good idea. 

A few things had changed by February, and for the better if you are Donald Trump.

A Hill/HarrisX Poll showed that if Trump were to form a new Party, 64% of Republican voters said they would be “likely” to join a Trump-led party, half of those said they would be “very likely.”

With Or Without Trump?

On an appearance with Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) bluntly stated that he believes that the Republican Party cannot “move forward” without the influence of Donald Trump.

During a discussion of the possible removal of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) from her position as GOP Conference Chair, Graham said what many GOP lawmakers might be thinking: “I’ve always liked Liz Cheney, but she’s made a determination that the Republican Party can’t grow with President Trump. I’ve determined we can’t grow without him.”

Graham continued, saying that the Republican Party has made inroads with minorities because of Trump-era “economic populism” and “America First” agenda items. He added, “If you don’t get that, you’re making the biggest mistake in the history of the Republican Party.”

Trump Derangement Syndrome Is Alive And Well

The one thing that Mika Brzezinski and Donny Deutsch have proven to be true, even after Joe Biden has hit the 100 day mark in his presidency, Trump derangement syndrome is still a fact in the media and among Democrats.

Headlines like, “Elizabeth Warren Claims Trump ‘Is Truly A Danger To Our Democracy’ As She Celebrates Facebook Ban”, “Meghan McCain Calls Trump ‘Cheeto Jesus’ And Defends Liz Cheney”, and ironically enough “MSNBC’s Johnson Whines He Would Be ‘Terrified’ Of The Violence Trump Would Incite If He Was Still In Office.” 

Katie Couric once referred to Trump supporters as a “cult” and suggested that deprogramming was in order for them.

Donny Deutsch just let Trump supporters know what the media continues to think of them. 

Donald Trump continues to live rent-free in the minds of the media and Democrats – and he’s not going anywhere.
