MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace was not happy on Monday when she went after White House adviser Kellyanne Conway and White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders for lying to the American public in order to push Donald Trump’s agenda.
During a panel discussion, former Republican Rick Wilson began by pointing out the liars at the White House.
“You’re an elite group of people that stood behind that podium and you knew lying to the media was lying to the American people,” said Wilson. “You were considerate and thoughtful in the things you said because you had to be. She is reckless because of the culture that the president created there.”
Wallace unleashed on Conway and Sanders for placing greater importance on politics than their patriotic obligation to the American people.
“We set out a policy for this program for our hour never to air a clip of Sarah Huckabee Sanders because she debases that podium,” said Wallace. “I spent time there to be totally triggered by Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Sanders, their deputies, anyone that debases that building. When they’re on the road and they do it, it is what it is. But when I see them on Air Force One or on the South Lawn or the podium, Kellyanne and her constant Fox News appearances from the North Lawn, there is something so repulsive about being tax-payer funded government employees, who, if the country is attacked by Anthrax or terrorists, have to go tell the American people what to do next, they use their position to lie.”
Wilson agreed, recalling the famous quote about “the institution” being “the shadow of a man.”
“She’s in the shadow of Trump and she’s willing and comfortable telling lies,” he said. “I’m sure she’s uncomfortable for that having to be in the report. It’s diminished the credibility and the trust of the White House at every level. No one tells the truth, including the boss.”
