Donny Deutsch: Trump is a Loser and the GOP Doesn’t Seem to Understand That
A total of 7 Republican senators voted to convict Donald Trump. That is a stunning total considering how popular he is within the party. The GOP has decided to go all in on Trump. This is clear by the backlash against the senators and congresspeople who voted to impeach and convict the former president.
But hitching themselves to Trump’s wagon hasn’t gone well for the GOP. Since he became president, Republicans have lost the house, senate and the White House. What the party hasn’t realized, Donny Deutsch says, is that Trump is a loser.
When talking about the GOP’s deference to the former president, the MSNBC contributor said, “Donald Trump is a loser. You point this out over and over again — since he showed up, he lost the House, the Senate, the presidency, lost governorships. A Republican Party that is branded a Trump party is a losing proposition.”
Deutsch continued, “No one knows this more than the former GOP Senate majority leader. Mitch McConnell understands that. Republicans don’t understand that so far, and they will have to go through another election cycle of losing to understand that. Pre the insurrection. Pre the most damaging thing that ever happened to Donald Trump, he was not electable on a national stage. And that was pre.
