Donny Deutsch Derails Morning Joe Segment on Comey Memos After Calling Himself the ‘Hooker Expert’

Donny Deutsch sent Morning Joe off the rails on Friday when he declared himself the “hooker expert” while the panel looked over James Comey‘s memos.

Last night, congressional Republicans leaked the former FBI director’s contemporaneous notes about his personal interactions with President Donald Trump. Some of the most striking revelations include Comey’s comments on the “golden showers” tape, and also his discussions with Trump on Vladimir Putin and Russian prostitutes.

When MSNBC’s Willie Geist had Deutsch react to all of this, he said he was “a little insulted when you didn’t initially come to me on hookers, I am the hooker expert here.” He quickly realized what he just said, but by that point, the panel already fell apart laughing.

“Not from personal experience, but just from research,” Deutsch added. “That came out wrong.”

“I don’t think there’s any question that Trump is terrified about prostitutes in Russia,” Deutsch said as he tried to regain control. “I think it’s just obvious. You can’t be a deductive, reasoning person and taking it both on his history, both on his reaction — stop smiling at me Barnicle!”

Mike Barnicle reminded him, “you walked into this.”

“Let’s do the weather, okay?” Deutsch concluded.
