‘Putin Owns Him’: Donny Deutsch Lambastes Trump Over Russia

MSNBC regular Donny Deutsch tore into President Donald Trump over Russia on Tuesday.

During an appearance on Deadline: White House with Nicolle Wallace, Deutsch came out and said what other MSNBC panelists have undoubtedly been thinking.

“There is only one explanation, ONE, why Donald Trump behaved the way he did last week. Basically it’s as if Putin was operating,” Deutsch said. “It’s ’cause Putin owns him. Can we just say that? There’s no other rational explanation.”

Deutsch added, “Give me another explanation. I want to not believe that.”

Wallace offered one.

“[T]he incompetence defense,” Wallace said. “I hear that from inside this White House, I hear that from inside the Cabinet, and I hear that from their few remaining public defenders.”

Deutsch wasn’t buying it.

“He’s never incompetent when it comes to testosterone.”
