MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace Claims Trump is a ‘Fan’ of Political Violence (VIDEO)

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace claimed on air that former President Donald Trump is a “fan” of political violence.

Wallace made the absurd claim while discussing the retirement of Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, a Republican who voted to impeach Trump.

“I’ll be totally honest, I’ve been so crushed with disappointment and disgust by the people that know better. People like him, he voted to impeach, but before him, people like Paul Ryan, people like Rob Portman, people who knew that everything Trump said and did was either corrupt or uninformed or disgusting or in some instances all three.”

The far-left host added that “the reason that political violence is a reality is complicated and not so complicated. The ex-president is a fan of it. He did not condemn the insurrection in forceful terms. He said on that day we love you. He said of the jailed insurrectionists recently that they had his support. We are heading down an incredibly, incredibly perilous path here just with one of the two parties’ views on political violence.”

Wallace has not made similar claims about the Democrats who not only did not disavow the Black Lives Matter riots and violence in 2020, but often endorsed it.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace Whines: ‘Delusional America’ Calls for Firing Milley

You ignorant Americans! How “delusional” can you be to think there was anything wrong about the Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff promising America’s greatest adversary to tip them off to any impending attack!

As “delusional” as that might seem to patriotic Americans, that was exactly Nicolle Wallace’s opinion on her MSNBC show Friday. Discussing Joint Chief Chairman Mark Milley’s phone call with his ChiCom counterpart in which he promised to give advance warning of a US attack ordered by President Trump, Wallace whined:

“Over in delusional America, where disinformation rules the day, there are calls for his firing and worse.”

Former Obama aide and frequent MSNBC contributor Jeremy Bash was only too happy to agree, saying he was “proud” that “General Milley did exactly the right thing.”

Bash also claimed that “the duty of the United States military [is] to maintain the peace and security and stability of the United States.”

Wrong. The duty of the US military is to carry out the orders of the Commander-in-Chief. “Maintaining peace and security” is the excuse that Third World militaries use to justify coup d’etats!

Note: consider the implications of Milley’s promise to the Communist Chinese military that he would tip them off to any coming American attack. Milley would be sending our military members into an ambush where the enemy would be waiting for them! How is that not a fireable offense, or much, much, worse?

NICOLLE WALLACE: Jeremy, on sort of the broader conversation that’s been happening in the days since Bob Woodward and Bob Costa, excerpts of their book “Peril” have come out, I’ve been wanting to ask your thoughts about, first, General Milley’s conduct, which he is defending and a lot of people are saying when all the adults and the guardrails and everyone else failed or couldn’t take Donald Trump anymore, he stayed and protected the country and did the right thing. And, but, over in delusional America, where disinformation rules the day, there are calls for his firing and worse. Your thoughts?

JEREMY BASH: Well, a couple things, Nicolle. First, a Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, any chairman, has responsibility for dialoguing with other countries, both our friends and close allies as well as our potential competitors and adversaries. So, it’s not unusual for a chairman to have conversations with the head of the Chinese military or the head of another country’s armed forces to compare notes, to sync up, to telegraph specific messages. 

And I think it’s a very important role that this chairman played in telegraphing to the Chinese, no, we’re not going to attack you. There is stability in the United States. And don’t miscalculate. 

Because, after all, so many wars, so many military conflicts, can be sparked from miscalculation. So, I’m totally comfortable with what General Milley did in this case. Moreover, I think in this particular matter, because there was such a lunatic in the Oval Office, someone who was unpredictable, someone who had politicized intelligence, politicized the Justice Department, attempted to politicize the military, I think – I’m proud. I think it was right of General Milley, and I’m proud that he stood firm and made clear that the United States military was not going to be dragged into a political gamesmanship at the 11th hour of the Trump administration.

And that it is the duty of the United States military to maintain the peace and security and stability of the United States. I understand there may be other contexts in which uniformed military transmitting messages to other countries may be out of sync with what the Commander-in-Chief wanted. That wasn’t this case. This case was a case where Donald Trump truly was threatening the stability of the entire world! 

And I think General Milley did exactly the right thing.

‘Every Two Days’: Nicolle Wallace Compares COVID Surge To 9/11 Death Toll

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace said Saturday that uniting the country during the pandemic has been much harder than in the aftermath of 9/11, adding that twice as many people die from COVID-19 every day than on the day of the attack.

“Are you ever struck by the thought that on the 40th, 50th anniversary we will look back, perhaps, at some of these pictures and be reminded, oh, yeah, that’s when we were all wearing masks? That’s when even our presidents and former presidents had to wear masks in public because of our uncontrolled pandemic in 2021?” MSNBC anchor Brian Williams asked Wallace during the 9/11 coverage.

Responding to the question, Wallace contrasted the public’s reaction to the measures instituted after the terrorist attacks with the media’s reception of COVID-19 mandates. She claimed it is now “much more difficult” to “call the country to a higher purpose.”

WATCH:

“You’ve got politicians and prominent folks in the media outraged by steps that a president, not too many presidents after the one we heard from today, would try to save his country from an unthinkable death toll. As many people die every two days as died on September 11th in this country, who don’t have to die,” Wallace stated. (RELATED: Gov. DeSantis Goes After Biden For Sweeping Vaccine Mandate ‘Not Based On Science’)

The MSNBC anchor then underscored the importance of COVID-19 vaccines which “everyone in this country over 12” can receive and said that those who have been vaccinated are not “tragically packing ICUs.”

Nicolle Wallace Invokes Robert Mueller and Collusion to Stop Texas’ Abortion Law – RedState

There is no doubt that the law passed by the Texas State Legislature and signed into law by a courageous Governor Greg Abbott that has essentially stopped abortions in Texas of babies in the first six weeks of life has really stirred up a hornet’s nest on the left. The response has been a virtual cornucopia of the most outrageous, inaccurate, apocalyptic nonsense. In a nutshell, what the Texas legislature did was both brilliant and simple. It applied the doctrine of qui tam lawsuits that are widespread in anti-fraud legislation to abortion. Instead of the state acting as the enforcement agent, private citizens were allowed to pursue civil damages against violators. When the Supreme Court allowed the law to go into effect, that, like Donald Trump’s election, broke a non-trivial number of people. One of those sad victims is MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace.

By way of introduction, Wallace was George Bush’s (43) communications director. She rose to fame on John McCain’s campaign to be the Graceful Loser to the first Black candidate for president. However, when McCain’s choice to be vice president, Alaska governor Sarah Palin, began acting like she wanted to win, Wallace started sandbagging her with the media. This led to her starring role in former RedState managing editor Erick Erickson’s Operation Leper.

This is the clip from yesterday.

WALLACE: Let’s deal with the elephant in the room. Obviously, I’m acutely aware of my complicity in the current state of the United States Supreme Court. That said, I’ve voted straight party-line Democratic ticket since 2016, and my only hope, my only wish is they freakin’ win. That they win elections. And what I don’t understand is the Republicans have revealed themselves over and over and over and over and over again, and if you wanna know how radical today’s GOP is, it’s so radical that the man picked by my old boss, Chief Justice John Roberts, sided with the liberals on the court in the Texas abortion ban. And what Joyce just described, I don’t know the legal term but it sounds a whole lot like collusion, between Republican dominated rightwing-centric legislatures and the far right members of the United States Supreme Court, whether it’s a crime and whether it’s real, maybe Mueller will look into it. But tell me where we go from here.

HEILEMANN: Ahhh…where do we go from here? Well…I don’t know if it’s collusion in the sense that…uh…that…I think the states…the…the..the state legislatures are listening to…this is public, right?…the…these people…ah…that…on the United States Supreme Court went through confirmation hearings and many of them in their public comments prior to being nominated in their confirmation hearings and subsequently made it pretty clear what their position was on Roe v. Wade. So, I don’t think you need to do a lot of colluding for state…state Republican legislatures to have confidence in the Court…what they think…not…not to have certainty but to have confidence to make it…make it worthwhile…and I think to Joyce’s point about…it’s obviously unprincipled to pass laws that are prima facie unconstitutional…when has that ever stopped anybody? I mean…the whole…there have been legislatures down through history who have passed laws to try and test a principle, to try to get the Supreme Court to make new law.

Some people are defending Wallace by saying she was joking. If so, the joke was missed by her panelist, John Heilemann, who treats the comment as a serious one. So, I’m dismissing that deflection out-of-hand. If your own panel takes a joke as a serious point, it isn’t a joke…you are.

What Wallace appears to propose is some sort of investigation into conservative state legislatures creating laws to a) win Supreme Court approval of conservative policies and b) deliberately setting up test cases to try and overturn existing Supreme Court precedent. The evidence for this is that the Supreme Court is upholding conservative legislation raising the grim specter of…COLLUSION. And who better to deal with this scourge of the republic than a doddering, somnolent Bob Mueller. This is just batsh** crazy. As Heilemann points out, legislatures passing laws to modify or remove precedents is not new.

There is no mystery why Wallace is acting unhinged or the GOP is pushing the envelope with conservative and pro-life legislation.

Wallace’s program is floundering.

In May, just a little over 147,000 people in this all-important demo tuned in every day to watch Wallace’s two-hour MSNBC program. In contrast, her program, which launched in 2017, averaged 543,000 viewers in the 25-54 demographic in January, 297,000 in February, 177,000 in March, and 215,000 in April.

It was only a matter of time before lousy ratings caught up to cable news’ patron saint of mediocrity . Wallace’s particularly ignorant brand of analysis and her unrelenting cheerleading for the Democratic Party may have served their purpose when the Republican Party held the White House and the U.S. Senate, but now? Who needs analysis from a know-nothing, washed-up GOP operative? Very few people, apparently.

The collapse couldn’t have happened to a more deserving anchor. She tied her success directly to Trump, and now she is living with the consequences of having centered her program entirely around opposing the former president. And make no mistake, few on cable television opposed Trump in a more laughable, ludicrous, and audacious manner than Wallace.

In the key 25-54 viewing demographic, she is being chased by Newsmax television.

Wallace has to do something to get her minuscule audience fired up, or she’s going to be working for the Lincoln Project…possibly driving the van as John Weaver cruises playgrounds. Unfortunately, the fact that she’s not terribly bright makes her choice of gambits more likely to result in head-scratchers than calls-to-action.

The aggressive legislation is not the result of collusion or coordination (not that it would be illegal or improper if true) or much of anything. The old go-along-get-along GOP establishment types are being flushed out of state capitols and, ever so slowly, out of the US Congress. They are being supplanted by people who believe in conservative principles, and they are willing to fight, particularly regarding the suppression of abortion. They aren’t going to be told “no,” and they aren’t afraid of losing in court if it moves the so-called Overton Window.  A working majority on the US Supreme Court is also in favor of rolling back the sacred status of abortion in America, all they need is the right set of facts, and states like Texas, like Mississippi, are working hard to create those facts. And not even Mueller is going to stop that.

‘Maybe Mueller Will Look Into It’: Nicolle Wallace Suggests Republicans Are Colluding With Supreme Court On Abortion Laws

MSNBC Anchor Nicolle Wallace accused state Republicans Tuesday of colluding with the “far-right members” of the U.S. Supreme Court on abortion laws following the Court’s recent refusal to block Texas’ Heartbeat Act.

“What I don’t understand is that the Republicans have revealed themselves over and over and over again. If you want to know how radical today’s GOP is, it’s so radical that the man picked by my old boss [former President George W. Bush], Chief Justice John Roberts, sided with the liberals on the Court in the Texas abortion ban,” Wallace told MSNBC national-affairs analyst John Heilemann. “And what Joyce just described, I don’t know the legal term, but it sounds a whole lot like collusion between Republican-dominated, right-wing centric legislatures and the far-right members of the United States Supreme Court.”

“Whether it’s a crime, or whether it’s real, maybe [Robert] Mueller will look into it,” the host added.

WATCH:

In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court refused several emergency requests by abortion providers to block Texas’ Heartbeat Act (S.B. 8), which bans abortion after a woman reaches her sixth week of pregnancy. Justices Roberts, Sotomayer, Breyer and Kagan wrote a dissent in which they referred to the most restrictive abortion-related legislation as “unprecedented.” (RELATED: Biden: Supreme Court Ruling ‘Insults The Rule Of Law’)

“The statutory scheme before the Court is not only unusual, but unprecedented. The legislature has imposed a prohibition on abortions after roughly six weeks, and then essentially delegated enforcement of that prohibition to the populace at large,” Justice Roberts, along with Kagan and Breyer, said in their dissent. “The desired consequence appears to be to insulate the State from responsibility for implementing and enforcing the regulatory regime.”

Heilemann told Wallace that the decision is not collusion, given that the nine justices currently serving on the Supreme Court went through confirmation hearings where they took a stance on Roe v. Wade, a 1973 Court decision that nationally legalized first-trimester abortions.

“The people on the United States Supreme Court went through confirmation hearings, and many of them, in their public comments, prior to being nominated in their confirmation hearings, subsequently made it pretty clear what their position was on Roe v. Wade.,” he said. “So I don’t think you need to do a lot of colluding for Republican State Legislatures to have confidence. There have been legislatures down through history that have passed laws in order to test a principle, in order to try to get the Supreme Court to make new laws.”

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace says 95% of Americans will agree with Biden’s speech on Afghanistan debacle

MSNBC host Nicholle Wallace claimed that 95% of Americans would agree with President Joe Biden’s speech on the debacle in Afghanistan and accused the media of unfairly criticizing him.

Biden
addressed the nation from the White House about the disastrous military retreat from Afghanistan as more horrific reports and videos surfaced showing the Taliban overrunning the country and taking over.

Wallace
said that the vast majority of Americans would agree with the president.

“95% of the American people will agree with everything he just said. 95% of the press covering this White House will disagree,” Wallace claimed.

“And for an American president to finally be completely aligned with such an overwhelming majority of what the American people think about Afghanistan is probably a relief to the American people,” she added.

Biden in his
speech placed much of the blame for the disastrous retreat on the Afghan people themselves.

“Afghanistan’s political leaders gave up and fled the country. The Afghan military collapsed, sometimes without trying to fight,” the president said.

“If anything, the developments of the past week reinforced that ending U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan now was the right decision,” he continued. “American troops cannot and should not be fighting in a war and dying in a war that Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves.”

Wallace went on to praise Biden for his statement, but admitted her two points were difficult to say aloud.

“He also went a long way to really fleshing out a Biden doctrine. And there are questions about whether he can achieve what he set out. But there is no equivocation, there is no lack of confidence that this is the right decision,” she
continued.

“And what he has going for him is a vast majority of Americans in both political parties,” Wallace concluded.

Fellow MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid appeared to agree with Wallace’s assessment.

“I have my issues with President Biden. Especially on voting rights and this obsession with ‘bipartisanship.’ But he is an entire grown-up and that speech just now shows it,” Reid tweeted.

Here’s the video of Wallace’s comments:

Nicolle Wallace Urges Dems: Make Republican ‘Domestic Terror Threat’ Your Midterm Theme

Nicolle Wallace has let the Democrats’ cat out of the bag regarding the January 6 hearings. 

Somebody should have told Wallace that she wasn’t supposed to admit that the 1/6 hearings are fundamentally about giving the Dems a platform for the 2022 midterm elections. But Wallace couldn’t help herself.  On her MSNBC show this afternoon, after admitting that “this is absolutely political.” 

NICOLLE WALLACE: Here’s my question for you, Ben Rhodes. This is absolutely political. These are the political supporters of the most prominent politician in the Republican party. Of course this is political. And I’m not arguing that this was a good idea, but September 11th was in the foreground of the midterm elections in ‘02 when Bush’s party held the — held Congress. 

And I wonder what your advice is. I think the security questions of the Republican party as a domestic-terror threat, that were raised by the police officers whose political affiliation is unknown, should be front and center for the Democrats in these midterm elections.

The policemen who testified, their “political affiliation is unknown”? Nicolle isn’t reading The Federalist, which had an instructive roundup of Harry Dunn’s leftist and riot-defending tweets. 

Former Obama aide Ben Rhodes predictably agreed, attempting to paint Republicans as hypocrites on law and order.

BEN RHODES: Yeah, absolutely, Nicolle. This is a message that the Democrats should absolutely be driving between now and the election. Because it gets at the fundamental hypocrisy of the Republican party, that uses language about law and order, and about law enforcement, to conceal the fact they in fact are the danger to democracy. And they are the ones who won’t even back up the very police officers who protect them.

WALLACE: I hope they’re listening to you.

Remind us, Ben: which party has an extreme base pushing “defund the police?”

Good luck to Nicolle and her fellow Democrats if they think 1/6 will make 2022 voters forget about rising inflation and Covid infections, and Biden’s increasingly blatant inability to fulfill his presidential functions.

Nicolle Wallace: As an Ex-Republican, I Know They NEED Minority Voter Suppression

On Tuesday’s Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace claimed that her status as a former Republican gives her the ability to say that the GOP knows it must suppress the minority vote in order to win. She was saying President Biden was right to trash Republicans as the greatest threat to democracy since the Civil War.

Wallace began by quoting PBS White House correspondent and MSNBC contributor Yamiche Alcindor’s positive tweet: “That was one of President Biden’s most passionate speeches of his presidency, possibly of his entire career. He’s saying very clearly this is a crisis as important as to what led to the Civil War. He said ‘peddlers of lies are threatening the very foundation of our country.'”

Wallace added, “I see it that way too. And I also, having spent time in the Republican Party, I assure you they see the opposite as the case that access to the polls for minority voters equals their political defeat forever in places like Georgia and Arizona and Michigan. There’s no mistake with the Republican strategy.”

That’s a weird thing to say at a time where Republicans are losing white voters, but gaining minority voters Even when she was part of the Republican Party, Wallace was never all that committed the cause. She famously bragged about not voting for John McCain in 2008 despite working on his campaign.

On the same day as the media, including Wallace later in the show, fawned over Texas Democrats skipping town, Wallace lamented to Los Angeles Times reporter Eli Stokols, “Republicans have their eye on a prize and they are running mercilessly through norms and relying on Democrats’ reluctance to blow up the filibuster. I wonder if you think Democrats and this president and this White House see it that clearly?”

Stokols explained that Team Biden is negotiating privately with the Manchins and Sinemas. “They are going to respect the personal politics of the individual lawmakers, even if that frustrates a lot of the Democratic activists out there who want to hear the president explicitly say it’s time to blow up the filibuster. “

It’s odd that Nicolle wants to destroy the filibuster and support Texas Democrats walking out of the legislature, but it’s the Republicans who are “running mercilessly through the norms.”

It is apparently just too much to ask for voters to observe the democratic norm of presenting an ID at the polls or putting their driver’s license number on their absentee ballot. The Texas bills in question also include provisions sought by Democrats, such as allowing voters to fix any issues with their absentee ballots. Not exactly the greatest threat to democracy since the Civil War.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace gushes over Jen Psaki, says ‘vast majority’ of White House reporters like her

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace gushed over White House press secretary Jen Psaki in an embarrassing segment where she claimed that most White House correspondents liked Psaki and looked up to her.

Wallace made the comments in an interview with Psaki on Thursday.

“I’ve walked in similar shoes to the ones you walk in now,” said Wallace, who formerly worked as communications director for President George W. Bush’s administration.

“How do you feel like it’s going? you get such high marks from the vast majority of the people in that room,” she continued. “You spar a little bit with some of the president’s detractors, but I’m sure privately they give you grudging respect. How do you feel it’s going?”

“As you know, it’s the job of reporters and members of the media to push me and push us when we need to give more information, when something doesn’t make sense and that’s part of democracy working in my view,” Psaki responded.

Wallace then gave Psaki some encouraging advice.

“Stand your ground is my only advice for you,” she said.

Wallace had previously made headlines when she asked how reporters keep from “wringing” the neck of former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during the Trump administration. She also used an expletive to refer to Fox News host Laura Ingraham and her guests in 2019.

CNN’s Brian Stelter had similar high praise for Psaki during an interview on his show, “Reliable Sources,” prompting many to criticize him for revealing his bias.

“Like, hey motherf***er, you’re supposed to be a journalist!” commented Joe Rogan later on his podcast.

Here’s part of the MSNBC interview with Psaki:
