Donny Deutsch might have set a vulgar new low in expressing liberals’ contempt for supporters of President Trump. On today’s Morning Joe, Deutsch referred to a group of Trump supporters as “fluffers.”
For those who might be unfamiliar with the term, “fluffer” is defined as “a person employed on a pornographic film set to ensure that male actors are kept aroused.”
After uttering the slur, Deutsch, a sly smile on his face [see screencap], added, “I just said that word, didn’t I? Well, just metaphorically, of course.”
Here’s the full quote:
“An interesting anecdote that somebody told me. When they were at his country club in Bedminster and Trump was about to walk into the room, and some of the Secret Service guys came up to the people he was going to go see and say, ‘hey, when you see the President, say positive things. You know, pump him up.’ They were like basically fluffers in the room, in effect. And — did — I just said that word, didn’t I? Well, just metaphorically, of course.”
Note: In June, DNC Chairman Tom Perez brought President Obama out onto the stage at a fundraiser by telling the audience, “let’s give it up for the real president of the United States.”
By Deutsch’s logic, what does that make the Dems in attendance?
