As a handful of the Democratic candidates took the stage last night in the first round of debates, one thing stood out… Can any of these Democrats actually beat Trump in 2020?
Surprisingly, one liberal host didn’t think so.
Fox News reported that MSNBC hosts Donny Deutsch and Lawrence O’Donnell had an intense exchange over whether any of the 2020 Dems can beat President Trump.
Deutsch began by telling the panel not to “shoot the messenger” and continued by stating…
“If we’re honest with ourselves and we look hard at ourselves, I think a lot of people agree with me… I also think when you can label somebody as a socialist, 57 percent of this country thinks that word is un-American. I’m not saying it’s fair. When he [Trump] can blanket Elizabeth Warren as a socialist and he’s onstage with her, the Democrats lose.”
Later, MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asked “who could beat Trump,” and Deutsch claimed “Joe Biden we want” but that not a single one of the candidates on the debate stage stand a chance.

O’Donnell fired back by saying “Let’s just identify this for what it is: pure guesswork a year-and-a-half away… And so it has, and Donny I say this respectfully, zero value.”
Later, Deustch pointed out that his claim doesn’t have zero value… “It’s understanding human behavior. And I guarantee you 90 percent of our audience agrees with me… I’m understanding Donald Trump – the way he’s connecting with this country and the strength he exudes… We need to exude a strong strength. It’s not a policy discussion.”
Although it was only the first round of debates between the Democratic candidates, a situation where the liberal media is claiming a victory for Trump is a huge step in the right direction.
