Nicolle Wallace: GOP wants ‘weenie tax bill’ to pass so badly they ignore their own members’ warnings
According to one MSNBC panelist, the Republican Party is looking for a legislative win by any means necessary — and are willing to overlook warnings from one of their own.
“Even if they fume private, and some of them fume publicly, [Republicans] know that the party’s bought in with President Trump whether they like it or not,” the Washington Post‘s Robert Costa said during a “Deadline: White House” panel Monday. “They’ve chosen to work with him to try to get what they believe is their agenda on taxes and maybe on health care and immigration.”
Host Nicolle Wallace, who is known for impassioned outbursts, chimed in with a characteristic observation.
“That is the most depressing thing I’ve heard all day,” Wallace exlaimed, “that they want to get their little weenie tax bill done so badly that they’re not gonna listen to Bob Corker screaming at the top of his lungs that we are at risk of World War III.”
“Who cares if we’re all dead?!” she said moments later.
