It’s been common knowledge among President Donald Trump and his supporters that Democrats and those in the establishment media will stop at nothing to undermine his administration.
Now, an MSNBC personality is admitting as much, according to The Daily Caller.
However, during an interview Friday with “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough, Donny Deutsch didn’t merely mention that leftists dislike Trump personally or that it would’ve been nice if Hillary Clinton had won the 2016 election.
No, instead Deutsch, who hosts “Saturday Night Politics,” let it rip, asserting that Democrats ought to oust “this criminal president.”
Who said life in the nation’s capital is fair? Certainly not Deutsch.
“We cannot lose the next election. … We cannot bring a knife fight to a bazooka gunfight,” he said. “And we’re not going to necessarily play fair.”
Judging by the “Morning Joe” official Twitter account, Scarborough appreciated what he heard from his colleague.
“He is aiding & abetting Putin’s ongoing attempts to subvert U.S. democracy, according to the Republican FBI, CIA, DNI…All Republicans are saying Russia is trying to subvert U.S. democracy & Moscow Mitch won’t even let the Senate take a vote on it. That is un-American.–@JoeNBC pic.twitter.com/vV1TekFgHF

Then again, it isn’t as if Scarborough thinks his party is above reproach.
He so dreads Trump winning in 2020 that Scarborough doesn’t hesitate to toss Democratic presidential hopefuls under the bus.
During Friday morning’s interview, Deutsch’s strategy didn’t end with removing Trump.
“We are playing against cheaters and liars or stealers” and — regardless of Michelle Obama’s advice that Democrats should “go high” — they must “do whatever we have to do,” Deutsch said.
Well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle.
So much for respecting the office of the president and its inhabitant; those days are over, as liberal Rep. Ayanna Presley of Massachusetts has defiantly demonstrated.
There’s no sugar-coating the distinct possibility that the 2020 election will be uglier than we could ever envision.
