Frequent Morning Joe guest Donnie Deutsch floated the idea more than once Thursday morning that Donald Trump could be suffering from erectile dysfunction.
“There are certain traditional problems that all 70-year-olds have,” he said. “Hypertension, 40 to 60 percent of 70-year-old men have erectile dysfunction problems. So, I wonder when he releases his transcripts if there will be anything there.”
“Oh my god,” host Mika Brzezinski immediately responded.
“No, no, not about him!” Deutsch said. “These are just the facts, that he’s 70 years old.”
“I didn’t hear that,” she continued. “I’m not– I’m not even going to look at you.”
Later, as Brzezinski was reintroducing guests at the top of the hour, the other guests cheerfully shouted that Deutch was “lewd.” “He was seriously lewd at 6:08 this morning,” she agreed.
“No, I’m a man of science,” he insisted.
“No, you’re gross,” she responded. “Who wants to talk about that, who wants to hear about that in 6:08 in the morning? You were trying to obviously tweak him…”
“Health is a big issue,” Deutch began again as Brzezinski hid her face behind a piece of paper. “And 70-year-olds, 60 percent, 70 percent have lose of hearing and 40 percent to 60 percent of men have erectile dysfunction.”
