MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace was in George W. Bush’s White House during the failure to respond in wake of Hurricane Katrina. So, when she sees the catastrophe happening on the US/Mexico border she understands what a disaster it is.
“Trump’s own party now panicking in the face of the political blowback,” said Wallace.
She then read the op-ed in the Wall Street Journal denouncing Trump’s camps with migrant children.
“Trump officials are defending the policy as a deterrent to illegal entry, but surely they understand that separating parents from children is morally unacceptable and politically unsustainable,” The Journal editorial board wrote. “If Mr. Trump wants to lose the House and risk impeachment … keep giving Democrats a daily picture of children stripped from their parents.”
“It’s time to draw the obvious parallel to what this moment may represent for this White House,” Wallace recalled Tuesday. “Having served on the White House staff during Hurricane Katrina and its tragic aftermath, there are clear parallels to the situation the Trump administration finds itself in now.”
