There’s been a consensus that, whatever else his critics might say about him, Donald Trump has been a good father. Then along came Donny Deutsch.
Said Deutsch on today’s Morning Joe:
“He would flip on anybody to save himself. I actually believe, that even if they came to his children, he would send his children to jail before he would go to jail. I think he’s that level, that depraved, and that empty of any moral center.”
Deutsch’s comment came in the context of a discussion of President Trump’s tweet, below, praising Paul Manafort for refusing to break under pressure from prosecutors.
I feel very badly for Paul Manafort and his wonderful family. “Justice” took a 12 year old tax case, among other things, applied tremendous pressure on him and, unlike Michael Cohen, he refused to “break” – make up stories in order to get a “deal.” Such respect for a brave man!
