The “Morning Joe” panel had an array of reactions to Donald Trump’s “epic” rant against Ben Carson during a campaign rally in Iowa on Thursday, in which he criticized his rival’s “pathological temper” and questioned a key story from his biography.
Just like a child molester, Trump said, “there’s no cure” for Carson’s so-called “pathological disease.”
After watching video of the speech, co-host Mika Brzezinski immediately exclaimed, “Oh, my god.”
The panel, made up of columnist Eugene Robinson, Donny Deutsch and former Obama czar Steve Rattner, was seemingly stunned by Trump’s comments.
Deutsch got up out of his seat and applauded, Robinson laughed and admitted the GOP candidate is “compelling,” and Rattner expressed “depression” at the state of American politics. Robinson explained that the speech is being referred to as “epic” due to its length.
