Published

on

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace lampooned President Donald Trump “fetishizing” North Korea state media on Monday’s “Deadline: White House.”

The host put up Trump’s latest outburst against CNN and suggested starting a global propaganda network.

Rick Wilson suggested Trump wanted to, “Slap Judge Jeanine (Pirro) in a pink kimono and have her scream at the TV every night.”

“You don’t get that from Nicolle Wallace!” Mike Lupica joked in response.

“This is real,” Wallace noted. “He wants what Kim Jong-un has.”

“He loves all the things that authoritarians have,” Wilson suggested. “He would love to have missile parades every week for his own ego-aggrandizement.”

“Serious question though, how does Fox News not fill all of those needs?” Wallace asked.

“There is no bottom for this guy, the black hole of ego-need for Donald Trump will absorb all the material in the universe — Fox can’t feed it fast enough,” Wilson answered.

“Fox News doesn’t give him enough political porn?” Lupica asked.

Oddly enough, those are exactly the people who helped propel him to becoming the 45th president of the United States.That's the thesis of the new book by Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters Michael Rothfeld and Joe Palazzolo, titled aptly enough, "The Fixers: The Bottom-Feeders, Crooked Lawyers, Gossipmongers, and Porn Stars Who Created the 45th President." I spoke with Rothfeld during a recent edition of Salon Talks about the book, a veritable encyclopedia of the unsavory characters that have made Trump who he is, alongside some new reporting.

In the early 2000s, a series of civil lawsuits against giant corporations illustrated the disastrous consequences that could ensue if a defendant failed to provide electronic evidence such as company emails or records.
