MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch Urges Biden to ‘Stay in the Basement’ for the Good of His Campaign

MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch jokingly advised former Vice President Joe Biden to stay out of the spotlight and let President Donald Trump further harm himself on Wednesday. The marketing and branding expert told Morning Joe‘s Willie Geist that the strategy was working for Biden.

“There is the one view that – let President Trump go out there and do what he’s doing every day, which is, you know, putting out false information and hurting himself with these public addresses,” Geist said.

“That’s it, you just nailed it,” Deutsch said. “Let him have the stage. As we all know an incumbent presidential election is a referendum on the incumbent, let him get out there. Let him continually put his foot in his mouth. And the idealized version, I think the less of Joe the better.”

“Joe Biden, the ideal version of Joe Biden is as the best version because when he goes out there, unfortunately, he does stumble a little bit.”

“But we know he’s comfort food, we can trust him. We know he’s solid,” he said. “Even if he completely disappeared and just gave the stage to Trump, that would be a win for him.”

“Let Donald Trump have the stage. Trump can’t help himself. Joe, I know he watches the show, you told him not to, but, Donald, keep doing what your doing, brother. That’s all you gotta do to handle the Democrats. Just keep getting out there … opening your mouth, Biden will be fine. Biden, you stay in the basement.”
