MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace Claims Trump And Tucker Carlson ‘Associating Themselves’ With Putin

On Wednesday, MSNBC personality Nicolle Wallace, channeling her role in selling the Iraq War to the American people as George W. Bush’s Communications Director, accused former President Donald Trump and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson of essentially working with Russia.

Wallace made her remarks during an exchange with guests on her show “Deadline.”

Wallace: ‘Tucker Carlson has been amplifying Russian disinformation’

A clip shared by MSNBC opens up with Wallace saying, “I want to put up this kind of axis of Putin, Trump, Tucker Carlson, because I think we have mistakenly thought that world events or tragedies or a red line or the slaughter of innocents or as Tony Blinken says, ‘the commission of war crimes,’ that these things could be defrosted, they could be put on ice, but it is clear they are not.”

Wallace’s use of “axis” appears to be a deliberate reference to the Nazi Germany-led Axis Powers in WWII, just to get a taste of where this propaganda piece was headed.

She then falsely claimed that Fox News host Tucker Carlson was peddling “Russian disinformation.”

“Tucker Carlson has been amplifying Russian disinformation: March 8, blamed America for Russia’s war, March 12 far-right embrace of the bioweapon conspiracy theory as the bombs were falling on Mariupol and other Ukrainian cities,” Wallace claimed. “And then, on March 13, we learned that the Kremlin feels it is essential to feature Tucker Carlson.”

Wallace added, “Have you ever covered one of the two American political parties associating themselves with an American adversary at a time of war?”

This kind of rhetoric isn’t new for Wallace. Aside from her role as Bush’s comms director, her show on MSNBC features this kind of commentary regularly.

Examples include insinuating that “male governors” were going to “reach deep into the uterus of a woman” by banning abortions.

Or saying “…the Democratic Party is the only party that it isn’t fostering domestic violent extremism in its messaging.”

Wallace on Putin: Does he think ‘American voices like Tucker Carlson and Donald Trump have his back?’

Wallace said of Putin, “We know he sees what Tucker Carlson does every night, and he sees what Donald Trump said and does every night.”

She added, “Pete, understanding Putin’s reliance on disinformation and sort of cherry-picking his inputs. You could imagine a scenario where he’s not listening to his own advisers because he sees these very powerful, very advisable American voices like Tucker Carlson and Donald Trump have his back?”

Of course, Wallace doesn’t actually believe that a foreign President ignores his own advisors and takes advice from Tucker Carlson. 

But that doesn’t stop her from saying it to whoever still watches MSNBC.
