Why Donnie Deutsch Is Trending On Twitter Today (It's Bad)

Sometimes it's not a good thing to be trending on Twitter. Donnie Deutsch found that out this morning.

Donnie, it's not always a good thing to be trending on Twitter.

On Wednesday's "Morning Joe," discussion turned to one national Quinnipiac poll (that's the poll I define as "only calling people with landlines who have called Tom Selleck for a reverse mortgage). The poll shows a national dip for Elizabeth Warren's candidacy. Donnie immediately defined that as a "likeability" problem for Warren, and actually said the term "school principal" in discussing Warren.

Karine Jean-Pierre noted that male candidates never get that "likeability" criticism, and Twitter was ready to join her in condemning Deutsch's sexism:

I personally think Donnie Deutsch is happy to take the L on sexism as long as no one mentions his pharma stocks. His arguments against Medicare for All (No, Donnie, millions of people are NOT going to have healthcare "taken away," but pharma will have their obscene and immoral profits lowered.) seem a little too panicked and personal.

It says everything about cable news that net worth $200M Donnie Deutsch gets a seat at the table and sick poor people do not.
