MSNBC: 'AOC Is Suicide for the Democrats'
'This socialist kind of pulling all the way to the left is a disaster'
An MSNBC panel has painted a grim outlook for the Democratic Party's hopes in coming elections, warning that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her radical-left allies "are suicide for the Democrats."
During an on-air discussion Monday, MSNBC personalities warned that Democrats need to quickly move away from the far-left-wing of the party they have embraced.
Otherwise, Democrats will get blown off the map in 2024 if President Donald Trump does not run again, frequent MSNBC guest Donny Deutsch said.
Deutsch made the comments on the network’s “Morning Joe” show while conversing with host Joe Scarborough, who agreed with him.
“If the Republicans ran anybody but Donald Trump, they would win in a landslide,” Deutsch said.
“Anybody just right of center, anybody.”
Deutsch said he wanted to see different polls of how potential 2024 candidates stack up against Biden.
He continued by predicting that Trump would win in a rematch.
Deutsch also noted that a candidate like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) “would win by over double digits” in 2024.
Scarborough responded in agreement by saying that he has “never heard such unrest in all my life against any party, as I am against the Democratic Party because of their policies, and how wildly out of step they are [with] mainstream America.”
Scarborough said that many of the complaints that he is hearing about how extreme Democrats have become are from “lifelong liberals” and “lifelong progressives.”
“I’m going to get killed on Twitter today,” he continued.
“And guess what? Guess what? I don’t care.
"You know why? Because Twitter isn’t mainstream America.
"Donny, I’m hearing this from lifelong liberals, lifelong progressives on a variety of issues.”
"Joe Biden does not have the hearts and minds of this country,” Deutsch said.
"And the other Democrats that we see being paraded forward, the AOC’s of the world, the far-left, are suicide for the Democrats.
"So the Democrats better get some new faces and the Democrats better figure out that this world lives just right of center or on a good year, just left of center and it’s this socialist kind of pulling all the way to the left is a disaster.”
If the Republicans run ANYBODY but Trump they win in a landslide in 2024. Sadly they have a chance with Trump. Dems better find their way to the center. pic.twitter.com/7683Fn0Gdb— Donny Deutsch (@DonnyDeutsch) October 18, 2021
