MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace joined the prime-time crew Tuesday night to add commentary to President Donald Trump’s Oval Office address — and pointed out the biggest of his lies.
“Here’s the deal: he doesn’t have public support,” Wallace told fellow MSNBC hosts Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes. “What he had a candidate, was at the base of the Republican-supported strain of fear-mongering about illegal immigration.”
“If he had public support, he’d have a bill because members in Congress would support it,” she added.
Wallace went on to note that when she worked for President George W. Bush, he addressed the nation in a similar fashion about immigration reform — but that he had the support of both parties when doing so.
“This is a president with no bill and no Republicans on board and doesn’t have the public,” she said. “It boggles the mind.”
