Donny Deutsch on Memo Release: ‘We Need to Take to the Streets ... We Need a Revolution’

‘Our democracy is under siege’

After President Trump declassified a House-crafted memo detailing how the FISA process was abused, the only solution is to "take to the streets" and start "a revolution."

That, at least, was the take from MSNBC's Donny Deutsch. 

The people, he said, must overthrow the "dictator" Trump.

"We have a guy, a president who clearly is owned by Putin," Deutsch said. "We basically now have a press release that’s been put out, that’s been twisted and mangled that now we’ll give this president permission to fire Rosenstein, who will now take over this investigation. Our democracy is under siege."

"People need to start taking to the streets," This is a dictator. This is not something to analyze any more. This is not, 'oh, well, good day for Trump.' This is frightening stuff. If you are an American, if you’re somebody who is 80 years old and sitting at home and you’ve watched the greatness of this country, you should be terrified and if you’re a 12-year-old and the future is in front of you, this is terrifying."

Here's a transcript from the exchange:

DEUTSCH: “My leg is shaking.”
WALLACE: “I know, go. Let it all out.”
DEUTSCH: “Here’s what’s going on here. I want to talk about the memo. We have a dozen instances of clearly the Russians colluding in this election with top Trump official. Two have already been convicted. We have a guy, a president who clearly is owned by Putin. We have an investigation going. OK, that’s good news. We basically now have a press release that’s been put out, that’s been twisted and mangled that now we’ll give this president permission to fire Rosenstein, who will now take over this investigation. Our democracy is under siege. People need to start taking to the streets. This is a dictator. This is not something to analyze any more. This is not, 'oh, well, good day for Trump.' This is frightening stuff. If you are an American, if you’re somebody who is 80 years old and sitting at home and you’ve watched the greatness of this country, you should be terrified and if you’re a 12-year-old and the future is in front of you, this is terrifying. This is not time to analyze and pundit. People, we need a revolution at this point. And I’m not doing TV here and I'm going, 'Oh Crazy Donny, what is he doing?' This is what’s going on.”
