Deutsch said Cohen knew Trump "better than anyone" and invited viewers to take his comments seriously.
"I think we really have to pay attention to that," said Deutsch.

Deutsch replied that he was not talking about election fraud, but something much more serious before reminding viewers that Cohen had declared that Trump would "not leave" the White House peacefully.
Alex Christy, editor-in-chief of NewsBusters, criticized the far-left morning show for the segment that had "shockingly" declared that Trump could trigger a civil war to stay in power.
"The actors of Morning Joe, MSNBC, like to see themselves as the advocates of truth and justice at a time when such ideals are supposed to be attacked by President Trump. Any presidential hyperbole is condemned as a lie, while its own hyperbole tells the truth to power, "wrote Christy. "Their irresponsibility and their hypocrisy really has no limit."
