Nicolle Wallace is calling out Fox News for attacking Dr. Fauci: ‘Singed while playing with fire’

Published

on

Fox News is already anticipating that they’ll face lawsuits for their reckless treatment of the warnings around coronavirus. Now that President Donald Trump has decided that America will reopen whether it’s safe or not, Fox News hosts took to the network Tuesday night to attack Dr. Anthony Fauci for his testimony that if the U.S. reopens the country will endure more suffering and death.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, the former communications chief at the George W. Bush White House, nailed Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham for deciding that Fauci is somehow the new enemy. “Nobody elected him,” the Fox hosts claimed. Indeed, if President Donald Trump and the White House doesn’t trust Fauci, they’ll make their own decisions, flying in the face of warnings from the experts. If that’s the way Trump and his friends at Fox want to move forward, they merely have to accept responsibility for the consequences if they’re wrong.

While Trump is trying to “sell a steady and swift march back to work,” as Wallace said, Americans aren’t buying it. A full 66 percent think that it likely won’t be safe until July to reemerge from lockdown. As it became clear that Trump was losing the battle on the message to reopen, Wallace said his pals took to the conservative airways.

She played a clip of the parade of attacks against Fauci, noting, “keep in mind they all work with a network associated with the Fox Business network which had to remove some hosts because of their coronavirus coverage.”

Trump threatens to pull RNC out of North Carolina unless Dem governor caves to allow mass gatherings

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday threatened to pull the Republican National Convention out of North Carolina if the state's Democratic governor didn't bow to his demands to allow mass gatherings.

"Democrat Governor Roy Cooper is still in Shutdown mood & unable to guarantee that by August we will be allowed full attendance in the Arena," the president wrote on Twitter. "In other words, we would be spending millions of dollars building the Arena to a very high standard without even knowing if the Democrat Governor would allow the Republican Party to fully occupy the space."

Trump then issued an ultimatum to Cooper: Let the RNC fill the arena to full capacity or lose the 2020 RNC.

Trump White House ‘flailing’ because they see election slipping away: AP reporter

Published

on

On Monday morning, MSNBC "Morning Joe" regular Jonathan Lemire claimed that Donald Trump's manic spree of ugly tweets aimed at his critics -- combined with White House attacks on presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden -- shows that the president and his campaign are "flailing" because they know the election is likely lost.

With host Joe Scarborough asking, "What is going through the president's mind? What is his state of mind? Why does he seem even more unbalanced and unmoored today than he has over the past three and a half turbulent years?" Lemire stated the combination of the coronavirus pandemic with its mounting death toll and the collapsing economy is more than the president can handle.

‘Damaged’ Trump too cowardly to make his Twitter attacks face to face: MSNBC contributor

Published

on

MSNBC's Mike Barnicle hammered President Donald Trump for tweeting out "cruel" attacks against political enemies he would never confront face to face.

The president spent much of Memorial Day weekend tweeting insults and murder accusations at his perceived enemies, including "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough, and Barnicle called Trump out for cowardice.

"Is it really shocking that he did this?" Barnicle said. "This is a cruel, damaged human being, who goes out of his way to harm people. He goes out of his way without seeing these people. He would never utter a single negative response to any of the people that he attacked on Twitter over the weekend if it were eye-to-eye contact. He is afraid of that, he is afraid of the repudiation. But he is afraid of the physicality of it, he is afraid of looking at someone in the eye and saying what he says on Twitter to them. He would never, ever do that."
