MSNBC's Donny Deutsch says his former friend Trump is "cornered, unhinged," would start war "to protect his hide"

A regular on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch, who says he was close friends with Trump for 20 years, tells Joe Scarborough, "You felt something shift this week. You really felt the noose tightening."

He goes on to say that he is now "truly terrified of what he [Trump] is capable of doing – nothing short of starting a war to protect his hide...What is this man, cornered, dangerous, unhinged now – a very different man than he was 20 years ago – what is he capable of doing?" Deutsch also refers to Trump as twisted, evil and cruel.

He admits that he and Trump were as close of friends as friends can be, however, even then he would never have wanted to be in a foxhole with him, but "I always kind of felt like he was in on the joke." Looks like the joke's on us.
