Whistleblower pulled fire alarm on Trump from inside a White House on fire: Nicolle Wallace

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace on Thursday provided the context she felt was necessary to understand the allegations from a whistleblower against President Donald Trump.

“Blockbuster reporting from The Washington Post has triggered one of the highest stakes standoffs yet between the Trump Administration and Congress. New Washington Post reporting reveals for the very first time that the mysterious whistleblower complaint of the nationwide top intelligence agency involves an alleged presidential promise to a foreign leader,” Wallace reported.

The host read a quote from the “stunning” story.

“The whistleblower complaint that has triggered a tense showdown between the U.S. intelligence community and Congress involves President Trump’s communications with a foreign leader, according to two former U.S. officials familiar with the matter,” the story read.

Wallace, who served as White House communications director in the George W. Bush administration prior to her career in journalism, offered her analysis of the scandal.

“Before we dive into the specifics of this whistleblower’s case, let’s put this latest national security flashpoint in its proper context. In conversations with two former senior intelligence officials, it’s been pointed out to me today that this is another call from inside the Trump Administration,” Wallace explained. “Put another way, it’s another fire alarm pulled from inside a house on fire, with presidential conduct so alarming that multiple national security officials have sounded similar alarms before this whistleblower case came to light.”

“And Donald Trump is a threat to U.S. national security — or is an impediment to protecting U.S. national security — is a theme that has run through many of the high-profile departures and conflicts Trump has waged with law enforcement and national security advisers,” she noted.

Wallace reminded of the anonymous op-ed published in The New York Times last September by a “senior official” in the Trump administration.

“Take foreign policy: In public and in private, President Trump shows a preference for autocrats and dictators, such as President Vladimir Putin of Russia and North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, and displays little genuine appreciation for the ties that bind us to allied, like-minded nations,” the senior official wrote.

The East Texas town has long had a reputation for racism.

Vidor is a small city of about 11,000 people near the Texas Gulf Coast, not too far from the Louisiana border. Despite the fact that Beaumont, a much bigger city just 10 minutes away, is quite integrated, Vidor is not. There are very few blacks there; it's mostly white. That is in large part because of a history of racism in Vidor, a past that continues to haunt the present," Keith Oppenheim reported for CNN in 2006.

Video of a chainsaw-wielding Texas man threatening protesters while shouting the n-word went viral on Friday.

While many people were shocked by the video, one of President Donald Trump's top advisors supported the racism and vigilantism in documented in the video, according to a new report.

"President Donald Trump and his allies for years have amplified racist messages on Twitter while simultaneously reaching out to black and Hispanic voters, a dissonant balancing act that’s now rocking the GOP amid nationwide racial-justice protests," Politico reported Saturday. "The two competing forces collided Saturday on the Twitter feed of Trump campaign senior adviser Mercedes Schlapp, when she boosted a tweet that lauded a man in Texas in a viral video as he yelled the n-word and wielded a chainsaw to chase away anti-racism demonstrators."
