Commentator Donny Deutsch, a frequent guest on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," on Monday told co-host Joe Scarborough that embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's fiery testimony Thursday in the face of sexual assault allegations against him was the "ultimate display of white entitlement."
"That Kavanaugh performance, that as a man, I was embarrassed for him," Deutsch added.
He also said this Supreme Court nomination has become "about how women feel" and that if Kavanaugh is confirmed, many American women won't be able to look at the high court "the same way" again.
Deutsch also employed a curious "income curve" observation as part of his argument.
"As I talked to men over the weekend, I find that the higher you go on the income curve, the more men are like, 'Why, you know, well, we all did this, we all did this in one form or another' — still not getting it," Deutsch added. "Women are getting it. And I find the lower you go on the income curve, men are getting it."
What else has Deutsch said?
- Shortly before Trump's 2016 presidential nomination, Deutsch said on "Morning Joe" that Trump "doesn’t want to be president" and claimed he wouldn't end up on the Republican ticket, basing his assertion on a phone call he said he had with Trump. Deutsch had said numerous times that he and Trump were friends.
- Deutsch doubled down on the subject during another "Morning Joe" appearance, this time after Trump's nomination: "Donald Trump is not winning this election, Donald Trump does not want to win — I’ve said this all along. He wants to run; he wants to have fun. He does not want to govern.”
- Any affection remaining between the pair has appeared kaput of late. In February, Deutsch said it’s time for people to take to the streets and spark a “revolution” against the “terrifying” acts of the “dictator” president.
- Amid the outcry of illegal immigrant children being separated from their parents at the border a few months back, Deutsch said that Americans who vote for Trump are like “Nazis.”
