MSNBC’s Jason Johnson Says Trump ‘Has To Be Jailed’ Because He’s A ‘Direct Danger To American Democracy’

On Wednesday, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson said that former President Donald Trump was such a “direct danger to American democracy” that he needed to be “jailed.”

Johnson made his remarks during a discussion on news outlet’s program “Deadline.”

Johnson says young people are cynical towards the media

In a segment in which former George W. Bush staffer-turned liberal hero Nicolle Wallace warned about “autocracy,” she made the unbelievable claim that the left is really understated because of a fear of sounding hyperbolic. 

To prove her point, Johnson went on to claim that a former President needed to be jailed.

Johnson said, “I’m teaching a media literacy class to my students at Morgan State University. The level of cynicism that young people have towards the media, and then you mix that with old folks or older folks who have decided that there’s only one place they want to listen to, it’s hard for anyone to be an arbiter of truth, justice and common sense at this particular point.”

“That’s one of the reasons why I have concerns as to whether or not the January 6 committee can be effective in presenting their case to the American public,” Johnson said.

The MSNBC personality then focused on Trump and his supporters.

“We know there are 30 percent of the population that doesn’t care,” John insisted. “They don’t care what the facts are.”

“They just want Donald Trump in office,” he claimed.

Johnson: Trump ‘a direct danger to American democracy that he has to be jailed’

“At this point, I don’t care if he’s found guilty of treason if he’s found guilty for violating records,” Johnson said. “I don’t care if they find he has a Blockbuster VHS tape from 1998 that he never returned and owes $100 million and has to go to jail. I don’t care.”

“The fact of the matter is the guy has been so obvious about being a direct danger to American democracy that he has to be jailed,” Johnson said.

“He has to be punished,” he finished.

Wallace, who had just 20 seconds earlier claimed that the left is afraid to sound hyperbolic, laughed about someone demanding their political opponent be jailed for an overdue movie.

After Breitbart initially covered the story, Johnson took to social media to attack people who disagree with his view:
