MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace said Monday on “Deadline: White House” that Americans should remember and “relive” Jan. 6 as they do the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The comments were made during a segment discussing the Jan. 6 committee hearings, ahead of a new prime-time hearing scheduled for Thursday.

MSNBC political analyst Claire McCaskill, a former Democratic senator from Missouri, has suggested a way to convey the impact of the claim that President Trump was watching the Capitol riot live on TV from the White House. as if the case were being tried in a courtroom.

“If I tried this case, I would put before the jury what was actually on television between 1:45 and 2:20 a.m. so they could relive and remember what the president saw sitting in that little dining room next to the Oval. Office,” McCaskill said, saying she remembered “feeling physically ill” during that time with “a disbelief, a shock to my system that this was happening in our country. And those were people I cared about who were threatened I remember feeling so helpless Imagine when you are not helpless and enjoying it [like Trump]?”

“That’s a great idea, Claire,” Wallace added.

“They really need to see this [Trump] was watching, McCaskill continued. He watched [live footage from the Capitol], Nicole. He was watching this, and he was partying, and any normal human being who wasn’t a criminal would say, as President of the United States, I have the power to stop them…”

After McCaskill finished speaking, Wallace embraced the idea of ​​replaying the January 6, 2021 news footage in real time, “That’s such a great idea that maybe I’ll steal it and we’ll hang out with her before [Thursday’s hearing] this week. I was on the air with Brian Williams for many [January 6] and texting national security officials and saying, “What am I looking at?” »

She praised Washington Post national investigative panelist and reporter Carol Leonnig for “the incredible body of reporting that day,” but favored McCaskill’s idea. “You’re right, relive [January 6] the way we relived the day of 9/11 for many, many years will be truly powerful,” Wallace said.

Every year on September 11, MSNBC rebroadcasts several hours of live, real-time footage from that day in 2001 from its NBC broadcast coverage.

Wallace then asked his guests about the Jan. 6 committee, which is made up of seven Democrats and two ardently anti-Trump Republicans, Reps. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo. and Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill. Cheney trails his main Trump-backed challenger by more than 20 points.

During the segment, attendees took turns attacking Trump for the role they claimed he played on Jan. 6. “I think Donald Trump is used to getting away with it for most of his life through wealth, then fame and now the powers of the presidency and this is an important time to finally be held responsible,” said Bloomberg editor Timothy L. O’Brien.

It wasn’t the first time Wallace had raised the specter of 9/11. In late June, she said Liz Cheney was targeting ‘Trumpism’ through the Jan. 6 committee, like the MP’s father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, was targeting terrorism after the Twin Towers attacks and the Pentagon in 2001.
