Donny Deutsch: Ted Cruz Is Sarah Palin, He's 'Completely Unelectable'

Early Monday morning, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) announced that he is running for president in 2016.

Later that same morning, frequent "Morning Joe" guest Donny Deutsch explained why he's not worried about the Republican senator winning the election.

"He is Sarah Palin," Deutsch said. "He is theater. He is completely unelectable."

"Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski objected, but Deutsch pressed on, arguing that he would even bet that come November, Cruz would no longer be in the picture.

“He’s good theater. That's why he is Sarah Palin. And that's who Sarah Palin was. And we love the show," he went on.
