MSNBC's Donny Deutsch: President Trump Is "A Sociopath"


The hosts of MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' moved another step towards calling for the removal of President Trump on Friday

"If you’ve been around mental health issues in your life ... the pressure heightens, it gets worse," 'Morning Joe' regular Donny Deutsch said Friday morning. "And we should be frightened right now. We should be — there is nothing glib about it."

"At what point do you go to Article 25?" Deutsch asked, referring to the 25th Amendment to the Constituion, which allows the cabinet to remove the president who is no longer able to "discharge the powers and duties of his office."

Deutsch 'diagnosed' a change in Trump's mental state: "I have known him for 20 years and I've spent hours and hours with him, everything from negotiating leases to at-school functions to hours and hours of interviewing him on my old show. He’s not the same guy. You can see it in his eyes and in his speech pattern, and most frighteningly his behavior. I think there’s something else happening here. If you've been around mental illness and whatnot, I think he’s feeling the noose around his neck tightening with Mueller."

"I mean, it’s just extraordinary. How much worse can it get?" he wondered later in the segment. "I fear it can get worse, and the people who are professionals in mental health frankly tell me this doesn’t get better. This probably won’t get better. It’s not going to resolve itself somehow. And as you said, he tends to want to escape the people who could keep him on the straight and narrow, so maybe we need to shut down Mar-a-Lago."

"Who does things without any thinking about repercussions?" he asked later. "A sociopath."
