Nicolle Wallace’s advice to Republicans: ‘This is your moment to get off of the Titanic, folks’

Published

fMSNBC host and former George W. Bush White House staffer Nicolle Wallace had some advice for Republicans: run away now.

The Monday panel discussion was over the Republican Senators being unwilling to stand up to President Donald Trump while he defies Article I of the Constitution. All officials take an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States against anyone “foreign and domestic” who might try to supersede it. Wallace anticipates this won’t end well for Republicans.

“This seems to me to be the off-ramp for anybody in the right-wing propaganda operation that says, ‘I’ve done enough. I’ve gone along with the lunacy around the wall. Now he’s doing something authoritarian in nature, usurping the power of Congress. I’ve done enough for this guy,'” Wallace said.

Trump has now managed to take lifelong Republicans and flipped what their ideology is all together. Meanwhile, former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe is accused of all sorts of lies. She noted if anyone else had done what McCabe was accused of doing, the conversations about “treason” would be everywhere.

“Now [Trump is] taking a lifelong Republican [McCabe], who if he had done any of the things Donald Trump accused him of doing, he would have been treated differently,” Wallace continued. “He’s out of work because he’s allegedly lied to the inspector general, not because of any of thinks conduct around the Russia question or Russia investigation. This seems to me if there’s anybody left with a conscience in the right-wing propaganda operation, this is your moment to get off the Titanic folks.”

Scaramucci: Trump will ‘flip out on you’ if you lick your finger and touch something on his desk

Published

on

On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," anchor Erin Burnett talked to former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci about President Donald Trump's hysteria over chief of staff Mick Mulvaney coughing in his presence.

"Does behavior like that from him, from the top, send a message about how he treats people or how others should treat people, or do you not have any concern?" asked Burnett.

"I — well, listen, I sort of think it's unfair. Every one of us have been temperamental from time to time," said Scaramucci, who was fired after just 10 days in the White House for extremely obscene comments about Steve Bannon. "I think it's very unfair to pick and choose these — clearly caught on camera. We're in the world of social media now. Many of us have said things that they've regretted saying, myself included especially, Erin. But what happens in the social media and our fishbowl — and the White House isn't even a fishbowl, it's a full-blown aquarium."

White House either lied or there was ‘gross mismanagement’ for not knowing Shanahan’s past: David Gergen

Published

on

On Tuesday, acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan withdrew his nomination as new details came to life about a violent series of domestic disputes within his family, including an incident in which he defended his son for assaulting his wife with a baseball bat.

Former White House official David Gergen scorned the idea that the White House and Senate Republicans were not aware of this information, noting that Shanahan was already confirmed to a high-ranking office in the Pentagon and would have already undergone a rigorous FBI background check.

Nancy Pelosi clap

President Donald Trump's White House is committing obstruction of justice by claiming Hope Hicks has "immunity" from testifying before Congress about her time in the administration and even transition.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked about the administration's contention by CNN congressional reporter Manu Raju.

Pelosi replied that it was, "obstruction of justice."

The answer could be important as Congressional precedence says that obstruction of justice is a high crime or misdemeanor worthy of impeachment.
