Donnie Deutsch Wants to Accost Bonus-Takers In Front of Their Kids


We don’t know whether Donnie Deutsch was on the AIG pitchfork bus tour this weekend, but judging from his appearance on Morning Joe today, it would have been right up his alley. At one point during a wide-ranging roundtable discussion, Deutsch went a little too far in a rant about AIG employees who received bonuses. “Why is everyone so concerned about protecting these guys? If you took a bonus and you got us into this, I want to know who you are, and I want to see you when you bring your kids to school, and I want to look you in the eye and say, ‘Give that money back, that’s not yours, that’s mine.’ Why do we protect these people?” Because the rest of us have yet to turn into rabid bonus zombies, Donnie.
