MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch: Elizabeth Warren Is Just Too Strident and Unlikable
Morning Joe regular Donny Deutsch claimed on Friday that Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren’s decline in polls over the past couple of months is due to her being strident and unlikable, all while making sure everyone knew he wasn’t peddling a sexist trope.
“Is it a woman or is it her?” Deutsch declared. “Or is it a certain stridentness to her that, do we want to invite her into our bedrooms and living rooms every day for four years?”
“She has the same issue Bernie had,” the MSNBC analyst added. “I don’t think it’s a gender issue—it’s a likability issue. I think we have to be careful. I think an amazing woman would be a great anecdote to Jon’s point earlier, a different definition of strength if you will. Strength to strength but a different way. But I don’t think Elizabeth Warren’s problem has been she’s a woman.”
