On Monday, MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace said that House Minority Whip Steve Scalise knows former President Donald Trump’s claims that he won the 2020 presidential election is “total bulls***.”
Wallace made her comments on her show “Deadline.”
Referencing a Fox News interview that Scalise did on Sunday, the MSNBC host noted that Scalise would not directly answer host Chris Wallace repeated attempts to get the Republican to say if he believed the 2020 election was “stolen” from Trump.
Wallace said, “If you’re not scared for our democracy and the damage being done to it around the clock, brick by brick, by elected Republican officials, then you’re not paying close enough attention to the knuckle-dragging, propaganda-ingesting, Trump-pacifying right of American politics.”
“Yesterday on live television, the number two Republican elected official in the House of Representatives refused to acknowledge the legitimacy of President Joe Biden’s victory in November of 2020, which happens to be the very same election, which returned him to the House of Representatives,” Wallace added.
Nicole Wallace wasn’t finished. In fact, the MSNBC host was just getting started.
She claimed, “Millions of Americans have been sold a fraud — that the election was stolen.”
“Republicans have a duty to tell the American people that this is not true,” the host said. “Perpetuating the big lie is an attack on the core of our constitutional republic.”
Wallace continued, “It was punctuated over the weekend when more Republican leaders, guys like Senator Chuck Grassley, playing to Donald Trump at a rally of thousands. Standing right there, close by his side. Embracing him and his message.”
After her opening, Wallace poses the question, “What happens when a democracy stops being a democracy?” to her MSNBC contributor panel.
Obama’s National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes was up first and that’s when the segment got heated.
After Rhodes finished, Wallace snaps: “Here’s how you know it is B.S. Here’s how you know Steve Scalise knows it’s total bullshit. Steve Scalise could call for every House Republican in all the states in question in their minds to resign. Because if those states were messed up, then they’re not real congressmen, are they?”
“Why don’t the Republicans have the courage of their convictions to go all the way?” Wallace finished.
