Phil Donahue: Trump Era ‘Darkest Political Moment in American History’

Former talk-show host Phil Donahue on Saturday reflected on President Trump’s administration, calling it “the darkest political moment in American history.”


“This is the darkest political moment in American history,” Donahue said on MSNBC Saturday. “Who’s going to argue that?”

Donahue’s show “The Phill Donahue Show” ran for 29 years with nearly 7,000 episodes. He hosted Trump on the show multiple times.

“I thought he was a hot dog,” Donahue said, reflecting on past interviews with Trump. “He collected celebrities and made a lot of noise and got his name on a lot of buildings.”
When asked about whether he thought Trump could be impeached, Donahue said that Trump is too popular and it wouldn’t be a good decision for lawmakers’ popularity. Donahue compared Trump to Elvis, saying his base “will not tolerate criticism” of the president.

“I think it’s too dangerous for a member of Congress to vote for impeachment and upset a significant number of his own constituency,” Donahue explained. “It’s a third rail — he could risk his own reelection.”

“He can shoot a gun down Fifth Avenue, right?” Donahue added, referencing Trump’s past claim. “All of a sudden we got a crotch-grabber for a president.”

    For the people who SUPPORTED AND VOTED FOR TRUMP, PHIL, IT WAS ONE OF THE BRIGHTEST DAYS IN RECENT YEARS. We suffered under 8 years of OBAMA selling us out, making us a laughingstock of the world and promoting racism and his and Michelle’s HATRED OF AMERICA! NOV. 8, 2016 WAS ON OF THE BRIGHTEST DAYS OF MY LIFE AND I AM PROUD TO BE A TRUMP SUPPORTER!
