MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace cracks up at Michael Cohen charges: ‘Lock her up has a whole new meaning’

Published

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace and her Tuesday political panel cracked up at the irony of Michael Cohen’s downfall while President Donald Trump has called himself a “law and order president.”

“This is huge news. And it’s not a good day for the Trump administration when you put this combined with [Michael] Flynn delaying his sentencing, and then [Paul] Manafort,” said former DNC advisor Doug Thornell.

He noted that these are all very senior people in Trump’s orbit.

“It calls into question the best and the brightest claim that this president made that he was going to be bringing in the best and the brightest to the administration. He also ran as a law and order president,” he continued.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump pledged to bring in “all the best people” and “drain the swamp.” The antithesis has been the case.

“He’s bringing in criminals and corrupt agency heads into these positions,” Thornell also said.

“‘Lock her up’ has a new meaning,” laughed Wallace. “They’re locking up the entire former leadership of the Trump orbit from the campaign years.”

Trump may come to regret his big celebration of a small dip in unemployment

Published

on

Though the unemployment rate remains in the double-digits, the official unemployment numbers are slightly lower than economists expected, prompting self-congratulations by President Donald Trump.

This article first appeared in Salon.

But experts say celebration is premature.

Indeed, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the unemployment rate fell from 14.7 percent in April to 13.3 percent in May as the economy added 2.5 million jobs. The high April number was the worst that the American workforce had seen since monthly record-keeping began in 1948, and almost certainly the worst since the Great Depression. White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett predicted last month that unemployment would rise above 20 percent, a view that was widely shared by economists.
