MSNBC host Donny Deutsch went on a lengthy rant against President Donald Trump and his white supporters Wednesday, suggesting that another Holocaust was in the making under his leadership.
Deutsch, who hosts Saturday Night Politics, was fired up over the fallout from Trump's widely criticized tweets telling four minority Democratic congresswomen to "go back" to their countries of origin and fix their governments; three of the congresswomen were born in the United States.

"Enough is enough, and I want to talk to the white people out there. OK? I want to talk to wealthy, white people, because I've had it. I've had discussions when I've talked to friends, people I know. He's good for the economy, he's good for the economy, they're all jerks, anyway," Deutsch said on Deadline: White House in a mocking voice.
Deutsch said "shame on" anyone who wasn't poor and supporting Trump.
"If you are on a subway train, and you saw four white nationalists screaming at an African-American woman ‘go home, go back where you came from.' If you vote for Trump, it's like you're going like this," he said, putting his head down.
"We are heading to such a dangerous place, and guess what? You look at history, it can happen here," he said. "Maybe it's the Jews next. Oh, oh, I forgot, his daughter is married to a Jew. Who says—and I come from a place, a group of people where it happened to, six million of them, and I'm not saying Trump is that person.
"But every playbook that's happening, every single playbook, creating the other. Getting rich people to look the other way. Getting people to not trust the press. Getting the judicial system in your pocket. Getting an entire branch of government, the legislative branch, the Republicans to just march with you. To act above the law. To say that you're going to put your adversaries in jail."
Deutsch said it was time for white people to look at their children and decide who they were.
The show's host, Nicolle Wallace, flatters her guests each day as some of her "favorite reporters and friends" and frequently laughs along with and gushes over their progressive points. However, she frowned as Deutsch spoke and moved immediately on to another guest.
Deutsch has called Trump a "dictator," "evil," and "a pig," who might lead the country to civil war. However, he said in March he would vote for him over a socialist before Morning Joe‘s Joe Scarborough cut him off and told him to see the error of his ways. Deutsch sheepishly said he wouldn't vote for Trump after all.
