Nicolle Wallace worries Republicans have had ‘lobotomies of their souls’

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace on Monday wondered how Republicans could possibly ignore the bombshell revelations in the public testimony and released transcripts that have emerged in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

“Beginning tomorrow morning, we’ll see two first-hand witnesses to the July 25th call with the leader of Ukraine,” Wallace noted. Jennifer Williams, from the vice president’s staff, and Alexander Vindman — both have said they were concerned by what they heard.”

The host, who served as White House communications director in the George W. Bush administration, noted that both witnesses “have managed to get under the president’s skin.”

But it was the report that Trump doesn’t give a “bleep” about Ukraine that made Wallace wonder how Republicans could possibly respond.

“Just unbelievable that the picture’s so crystal clear,” Wallace noted. “I mean, what does Rob Portman (R-OH) and Richard Burr (R-NC), what do they stand up and say when they hear this?” Wallace asked.

MSNBC national affairs analyst John Heilemann asked her to clarify the question.

“Are you asking what they should say?” he asked. “Or asking what they are going to say?”

“I’m asking — if they haven’t had lobotomies of their souls and their consciences — what do they say when they hear that?”

Trump has rolled out a ‘new scam’ amid internal turmoil over Fauci: op-ed

Writing in the Washington Post this Thursday, Greg Sargent takes a look at the Trump's administration's recent walkback of its attempts to undermine its top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, after they discovered that it wasn't being received by the public so well.

According to Sargent, President Trump's "new scam" is to present the image that his administration actually respects Fauci's advice while continuing to undermine him behind the scenes.

"What’s really going on here is a kind of two-step, a double game," Sargent writes. "Trump and his advisers want him to reap the political benefits of appearing to harbor general respect for Fauci’s expertise, while simultaneously continuing to undermine Fauci’s actual claims about the threat the novel coronavirus will continue to pose — because those claims badly undermine Trump’s reelection message."

2020 Election

GOP strategist who wrote party’s 2012 autopsy says she hopes the party loses this year

Published

Former Republican strategist Sally Bradshaw, who wrote the GOP's so-called "autopsy" after its 2012 election losses, is hoping the party comes crashing down in defeat this fall.

In an email to NPR, Bradshaw conceded that the 2012 election postmortem was "obviously a failure," given that President Donald Trump had taken over the party in 2016 by explicitly ignoring its recommendations about taking a more inclusive approach to immigration reform.

However, she also seemed to think that the GOP's bill for not becoming a more inclusive party had finally come due given its failures to govern through a deadly pandemic that so far has claimed the lives of 137,000 Americans with no end in sight.

Republican leaders have maintained that not being in school is so detrimental to the development of children that parents must risk their lives and the lives of their families, teachers, principals, and other school administration members.

Author Don Winslow posted a video directed at mothers recalling all of the great moments in a child's development from their first words to their first steps and their first days of school.
