Nicolle Wallace Just Bashed Tucker Carlson For ‘Rooting’ For Russia: Watch
MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace lashed out at conservatives and Fox News on Tuesday night for “rooting” for Russia while Donald Trump gets away with his crimes.
The host showed a clip of Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) making his “third attempt” at answering whether he believes the U.S. intelligence committee’s conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 election, or whether he bought the discredited conspiracy theory started by Russian intelligence that it was actually Ukraine.
“It’s not just the senator sowing seeds of doubt,” Wallace noted. “Last night, Donald Trump’s favorite network took [Vladimir] Putin’s side. Tucker Carlson said something so outrageous even he had to address it at the end of the show.”
Wallace then played a clip of Carlson claiming that he should root for Russia because he doesn’t care about NATO allies. Carlson goes on to say that he was “joking.”
But Wallace still went after the Fox News personality.
“Oh, you’re being funny, for the first time ever,” Wallace said. “I see.”
“He’s speaking to who he’s speaking to and he’s in on a joke and he thinks it’s funny to play with democracies. They don’t think it’s funny,” Wallace noted. “One thing that came through from two weeks of testimony is we were toying with a country at war. This isn’t just extorting a U.S. ally and a pile of foreign aid, humanitarian aid, that would save lives of children — which is also disgusting and reprehensible. This is toying with military aid for a country at war.”
