#PopcornMoment: MSNBC Hosts Have Gone Off The Deep End

Anchor Nicolle Wallace: Trump Administration Are Not Human Beings

During a panel discussion this week on MSNBC, host Nicolle Wallace weighed in on the retirement of Republican Senator of Arizona Jeff Flake before going completely off the rails and questioning the very humanity of the White House and the Trump administration.

After MSNBC contributor Charlie Sykes said that there was a form of “Stockholm Syndrome” going on in the Republican Party when it comes to Trump, Wallace made the following observation:

“I want to bring this back to this concept, [MSNBC contributor] Elise Jordan, of deflection, of projection, a lack of irony and sort of a lack of — there’s no capacity for humanity, these do not appear to be human beings. They trotted General Kelly out as a human shield last week, a political human shield to take the swings that Donald Trump wasn’t man enough to take for himself, for the disgrace––he was a disgrace last week, the way he treated the… widow of a fallen soldier. They trotted Kelly out there like a human shield.”

WIBC host Tony Katz offered the following thought on Wallace's comments:

If you want to make the argument that the President didn't have a good phone call with Meisha Johnson, okay. And if Johnson says she felt disrespected, okay, she felt disrespected. I don't argue it in any way shape or form. You know what it means to me? Nothing. You know what it changes? Nothing. You know what policy conversation it changes? Nothing. 

...Because I don't worry about whether she's insulted. I've got now multiple Gold Star widows on the record saying that they spoke with the President and they really appreciated the phone call. Those are dismissed because one woman says she's insulted? Maybe she's easily insulted. Maybe she was insulted, I don't know, but we cannot allow it to determine our politics or our policy.
