Donny Deutsch Calls Limbaugh More Names; Gets Bleeped

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Joe Scarborough and company had Donny Deutsch on to discuss Rush Limbaugh‘s “Today” Show interview. At 8:26amET, they showed a clip of Limbaugh claiming to “have spawned” Glenn Beck. Afterward, Deutsch described Limbaugh as a “megalomaniac” and a “scary, distasteful human being.” Clip:

Then, a few minutes later, Scarborough and Deutsch discussed Limbaugh’s potential part-ownership an NFL team and the comments that led to his departure from ESPN. During the conversation, the audio cut out while Deutsch was talking and Scarborough said, semi-laughing, “…bleeped that out again. Why did you have to do that? Why?” Donny later explained, “I called Rush Limbaugh a feminine hygiene product that starts with a D and sounds like my last name. It was bleeped you can’t say that on TV.” At the end of the program Mika Brzezinski claimed, “I learned that you can’t do a show with Donny without him saying something perverted.”

This isn’t the first time Deutsch has called Limbaugh names on MSNBC.
