Since it became clear that he lost the 2020 presidential election by a landslide, President Donald Trump has largely stayed of sight, tweeting out conspiracy theories about how a second term in office was stolen from him.

The president’s absence from the public eye led his longtime friend and associate Donnie Deutsch to suggest Trump may have had a nervous breakdown as he contemplates his loss and the pending legal problems he faces.

During an appearance on MSNBC Friday morning, Deutsch referenced the “pathetic” press conference held by Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, on Thursday afternoon:

“Speaking of pathetic, a little news story that popped up yesterday that didn’t get a lot of attention: Donald Trump is not going to Mar-a-Lago for Thanksgiving. I’m bringing that up for a reason. Mar-a-Lago — I know you and Mika [Brzezinski] have been there — it’s a safe little haven he goes to, he has 200 of his minions there and they kiss his kneecaps and it’s amazing.”

And then Deutsch touched on Trump’s mental health:

“I’m wondering has he had a nervous breakdown at the White House? He can’t face the American people as a loser. His father said there are killers and there are losers. What’s going on at the White House? Is he under the covers, walking around in circles? Has he had a breakdown? He’s trying to start this assault yet he is missing, he’s scared, it’s like he’s become a pathetic nonentity.”

Deutsch added:

“There’s not a lot of stories about what’s going on at the White House, has he fallen apart? I wouldn’t be shocked. It’s like someone put a pin inside,  a sword inside and pulled it out and he completely deflated. What is going on with him. Has had some sort of a breakdown?”

Instead of dragging Donald Trump out of the White House on January 20, 2021, the Secret Service might want to bring a straitjacket and some tranquilizers.
