Donny Deutsch said Friday on MNSBC’s “Morning Joe” that President Trump is an “accidental dictator.”
“He never thought he’d be in office, now he’s in office. He doesn’t know how to behave differently,” he said in response to a question about the “optics” of the Trump presidency from Mika Brzezinski.
Deutsch said Trump is unable to change his dictator-like behavior in order to fit the framework of the presidency, and cited his desire to imprison Hillary Clinton, his firing of Comey, his attacks on the press, and other incidents as examples of his incompetency.
“This is a man that genuinely has behaved for 70 years one way, does not understand the office he has, and actually behaves as a dictator.”
“We are in very, very, very dangerous territory here,” he continued, saying Trump is “frighteningly ill-equipped” for his position.
However, Deutsch seems to believe his nightmare may soon be over.
“You can feel the thread being pulled. You can feel the clothes start to come off the emperor. I believe this is the beginning of the end.”
