MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace said on “Deadline” on Tuesday that the Republican response to former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Fla. raided by the FBI was a new “disgusting” hollow.
Wallace said: ‘I think what he’s saying is when crimes were committed, now we have a bar. We now know that national security crimes, crimes involving classified information, will be prosecuted, even if they include looking for Donald Trump stuff at Mar-a-Lago.
She continued, “I get glares at the Republican madness and their stupid response. I am horrified. I thought someone like Stephen Ayres, an insurgent testifying about how he was duped not only by Donald Trump but also by Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson and all those morons repeating things they knew to be lies. We know these three knew they were lying, or at least Ingraham and Sean because we saw what they were texting the chief of staff.
Wallace added, “If they repeat lies about the DOJ, which is pursuing an incredibly aggressive investigation of Hunter Biden, more aggressive than anything Bill Barr has done, they will be peddling more lies. The kind of lies that ruined Stephen Ayres’ life. I have no sympathy for Stephen Ayres, but I think it’s instructive to watch the grassroots call for protest or chaos or disrespect for the FBI is a new horror and a new low for the right, which is so far down the road, they can no longer see the sky. I think their reaction over the past 24 hours has been disgusting.
