Advertising executive and MSNBC panelist Donny Deutsch spoke out against President Donald Trump on Friday, calling on citizens to protest the president because U.S. democracy is supposedly “under siege.”
“We have a guy, a president who clearly is owned by Putin,” Deutsch said during his appearance on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House.”
“We have an investigation going. Okay, that’s good news,” he added. “We basically now have a press release that’s been put out, that’s been twisted and mangled that now will give this president permission to fire Rosenstein, who will now take over this investigation.”
Deutsch then claimed, “Our democracy is under siege,” before calling Trump a “dictator” and urging citizens “to start taking to the streets.”
“This is a dictator,” the MSNBC analyst claimed. “This is not something to analyze anymore.
“If you are an American, if you’re somebody who’s 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.”
