MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace blasted the cowardice of the Republican Party in the age of Donald Trump during an appearance on Donny Deutsch’s new show “Saturday Night Politics.”
The host mentioned a recent New York Times column by Tom Friedman searching for a Republican to primary Trump in 2020.
Wallace laughed at the column, which she labeled as “fantasy.”
“This is fiction,” Wallace argued. “There’s not a Republican who could stand a mean tweet.”
Wallace served as communications director in the George W. Bush White House and has worked multiple GOP presidential campaigns.
“The Republicans, I mean they are the party of cowards,” Wallace said. “The idea there’s going to be one that will land on a grenade? There’s not one that can stomach a tweet.
“There’s not a Republican in this country who thinks they’re man or woman enough to handle a mean tweet from Donald Trump,” she argued. “You’ve got to evaluate the Republican Party as it is and as it is right now there’s not one Republican who could stomach a mean tweet from Donald Trump.”
As many as 20 corrections officers have been subpoenaed by grand jury investigating Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide
According to sources interviewed by CNN, as many as 20 correctional officers are being called to testify before the grand jury investigating how Jeffrey Epstein was able to kill himself.
It was reported late Wednesday that there were eight officers who knew to watch Epstein while he was housed in the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Epstein had left "suicide watch" after an alleged suicide attempt, and he was supposed to remain under the watchful eye of officers. However, the officers are overworked and the prison understaffed, requiring officers to work several overtime shifts, the officer's union explained.
Vegan parents who severely malnourished 10-month-old daughter to the point of bone loss will avoid jail time
An Australian couple will avoid jail time and instead serve 300 hours of community service after they pled guilty to failing to provide the necessities of life for their 19-month-old daughter, Australian outlet 7News reported this Thursday.
The mother (33) and father (35), who have not been publicly identified for legal reasons, fed their daughter a strict vegan diet that caused the child to become severely malnourished. The child was in such ill health that she weighed just over 10 pounds when authorities discovered her. Additionally, doctors found that due to her strict diet, her bones had not developed properly since she was born and she had yet to grow teeth.
‘All over the map’: CNN details the bizarre surge of Trump’s flip-flops
Following two mass shootings in one weekend, President Donald Trump promised to strengthen background checks for gun purchases. But just the next week--reportedly after speaking with NRA head Wayne LaPierre--dropped his resolve and said there were already sufficient background checks on the books.
That's not the only recent policy flip-flop by the President.
On CNN Thursday, White House reporter Sarah Westwood chronicled all the policies on which the president has reversed course. First, the president abruptly cancelled plans to cut foreign aid.
"President Trump, the White House, they were facing a wave of opposition from Congressional appropriators in both parties and from the State Department who thought that this move could do harm to national security," Westwood said.
