MSNBC's Donny Deutsch: We're Not Going To "Play Fair" In War To Put Trump In Jail

|

MSNBC contributor and Democratic National Committee advisor Donny Deutsch on Friday said "we're" not going to "play fair" in an effort to put President Donald Trump in jail. Deutsch also implored Democrats to use "fear" to campaign against Trump to paint a picture of a "dystopian society" that will follow a Trump second term.

"The one tool we have to use that the Democrats never use is fear," Deutsch said on 'Morning Joe' Friday. "Start to stop talking about Donald Trump today and yesterday and start to paint a picture of what the next four years would look like. Maybe even the next 8, 12 years because he doesn't think he's going anywhere of the possible path to a dystopian society. There is no more playing. We cannot bring a knife fight to a bazooka gunfight."





"We may not have won the battle of impeachment, but we're going to win the war of putting him in jail. Whatever we have to do. And we're not going to necessarily play fair," Deutsch warned.

Earlier on Friday, former MSNBC host Krystal Ball called for MSNBC hosts and commentators to explain themselves for drinking deeply the Russia conspiracy.

DONNY DEUTSCH, MSNBC: What you said in a couple of minutes yesterday to me is the most important thing that's ever been said on this show, or on any show on this air, and that [is] we are at war. It is time for the Democrats to wake up. We are playing against cheaters and liars or stealers.

With all due respect to Michelle Obama when they go low, we've got to do whatever we have to do. We actually have a government led by Moscow Mitch and Criminal Trump -- by the way, we're going to call him 'unindicted criminal Trump' because in two instances he has been an unindicted criminal...

So I know in regular -- when you're playing fair you're supposed to call him President Trump. Just like I call him Moscow Mitch, we'll call him Criminal Trump. Another message for the Democrats is it is time to move forward. There are two takeaways from Mueller that we're going to use as we go to war. Number one, the president broke the law and when he's out of office he can go and will go to jail and number two, we are vulnerable with our election systems. That's our two things.

We may not have won the battle of impeachment, but we're going to win the war of putting him in jail. Whatever we have to do. And we're not going to necessarily play fair.

And for all the intellectuals out there whose hair is going to go on fire, 'But we're becoming like them, we're becoming like them,' we cannot lose the next election. We will go back 50 years.

The one tool we have to use that the Democrats never use is fear. Start to stop talking about Donald Trump today and yesterday and start to paint a picture of what the next four years would look like. Maybe even the next 8, 12 years because he doesn't think he's going anywhere of the possible path to a dystopian society. There is no more playing. We cannot bring a knife fight to a bazooka gunfight.
