‘You Work For A Lunatic!’: Nicolle Wallace Shames WH Officials For Defending Trump’s Attacks On McCain
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace called Donald Trump a lunatic for his recent attacks on the late Senator John McCain.
The news show host not only blasted Trump but the people at the White House who have enabled him and defended his attacks.
“One thing is becoming clear,” Wallace said. “Trump may be a man on an island with this one, even within his own administration.”
She cited a recent Politico report that no one in Trump’s White House wants to touch the ongoing feud.
“A current senior White House official said White House aides are making an effort not to discuss it in polite company,” the report revealed. “Another current White House official, bemoaned the tawdry distraction. ‘It does not appear to be a great use of our time to talk about George Conway or dead John McCain … Why are we doing this?”
“Because you work for a lunatic!” Wallace insisted after reading the report.
During the discussion, Washington Post reporter Robert Costa noted that Republicans have slowly started to turn on the president but that many of them have refused to speak out against the president’s attacks on McCain.
“If you turn on Fox News or go to different outlets and Twitter, on conservative personalities, they’re saying President Trump has a point,” Costa explained. “And the Republican leadership, in their statement, are not calling out the president by name, only praising Sen. McCain. It underscored the president’s continued power in this party.”
