Watch: Nicolle Wallace Smacks GOP With Reality Check After They Claimed They ‘Are Not Screwed’
MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace was “gobsmacked by the Republicans’ audacity of spin” the story by claiming that they are ahead of Democrats heading into the upcoming midterm elections.
Wallace was referring to Donald Trump’s comments that Democrats will be supporting Republicans this November after they confirmed Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual assault and rape, to the Supreme Court.
“Everyone has fallen, hook, line and sinker for the notion that Republicans are not screwed because they’ve tapped into some sort of backlash against #MeToo with the Kavanaugh nomination,” Wallace said, speaking to Washington Post reporter Phil Rucker. “How gleeful is the White House that they’re actually having some success at selling what I think is a completely bogus message?”
Rucker noted that Republicans and Trump are trying to come up with a conspiracy with “the angry mob” and calling the sexual allegations against Kavanaugh a “hoax.”
