Trump labeled 'obese' and 'repulsive physically' in insanely brutal Morning Joe segment

President Trump's post-Mueller rally was celebrated on Fox News as a "gloat-fest" over his "slain enemies." MSNBC presented a slightly different take.

In a Morning Joe segment on Friday per The Wrap, regular guest Donny Deutsch brutally went after Trump's physical appearance in response to the president labeling House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) a "pencil neck."

"He's just disgusting to look at. He’s obese," Deutsch said of Trump while saying he wishes the producers would put up a picture of the president "from behind" to make that point clearer. "He's one of the most repulsive physically looking human beings I’ve ever seen."

Even for hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, this went a little too far, with Brzezinski calling his comment "not necessary." But Scarborough's take on the rally was brutal in its own way, with the host saying Trump looked "sad and pathetic" at the rally and was "swinging wildly" because he's a "cornered man" who looks "smaller and weaker by the day."
