Republican mocked for attacking MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace amid impeachment hearing: ‘Shouldn’t you be paying attention?’

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) was ridiculed online for attacking MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace during the impeachment hearings.

Stefanik, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, attacked the MSNBC host during her committee’s hearing.

Wallace, a former top Republican strategist, has been a harsh critic of the administration. After Stefanik interrupted the hearing, Wallace blasted her.

“It would appear Elise Stefanik is drinking the same loony tune juice with her breakfast as Nikki Haley – going from occasionally reasonable Republicans to Trump shills,” Wallace tweeted, adding the hashtag #pathetic.

Stefanik replied to Wallace less than a half an hour later, while the hearing was underway.

“I am flattered that you are comparing me to Nikki Haley,” Stefanik tweeted, claiming it was a “HUGE compliment.”

Stefanik then attacked Wallace for not running for office as a Republican — even though Wallace left the party in the age of Trump.

“Instead of ever standing in front of voters as a candidate or putting your name on the ballot, you just keep attacking GOP women who have. Sad,” Stefanik claimed. “Get outside of the MSNBC bubble!”

“Everything I do during this, I’m coordinating with White House counsel,” he said on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show. “There will be no difference between the President’s position and our position as to how to handle this.”

He noted that, unlike the many other issues that come to his chamber, he’s unable to block impeachment. If it comes, he has to hold a trial, he admitted somewhat ruefully.

UK’s Boris Johnson looks set for big win in ‘Brexit election’

Published

Prime Minister Boris Johnson's ruling party appeared on course for a sweeping victory in Thursday's snap election, an exit poll showed, paving the way for Britain to leave the EU next month after years of political deadlock.

The Conservatives were forecast to win a thumping 368 out of 650 seats in parliament -- which if confirmed would be the party's biggest majority in three decades -- according to the survey published as polls closed.

The pound jumped by about two percent against the dollar on the projected results of what all sides had painted as the most momentous election in Britain in a generation.

The Center for Public Integrity sought the information in Freedom of Information Act requests filed in late September.
