MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace Says The ‘Silver Lining’ To Coronavirus Is That It Could Hurt Trump Politically

It's truly disturbing to see someone become so consumed by Trump Derangement Syndrome that she is celebrating something that has taken thousands of lives just because it could make the president look bad.

MSNBC sank to a new low on Thursday when host Nicolle Wallace suggested that coronavirus, which has killed tens of thousands of Americans, could be a good thing because it will hurt President Donald Trump politically.

While hosting her show “Deadline: White House,” Wallace had this to say:

There is something both tragic, and pathetic, and ironic about the fact that it took a, you know, color-blind, gender-blind, state-line-blind virus to sort of have all of the president’s sins from his first three years catch up with him. You can’t stand there and lie. You can’t contradict your scientists because they’re the ones that stand at 66 and 68 percent public trust, not you. He’s down at 38 percent. Pence is lower than him. I mean, he needs those people whether he likes what they say or not and I wonder what you think about whether or not there’s some silver lining there, that some of the things that, that we’ve been talking about for three years may be finally catching up with him?

This isn’t the first time Wallace has used COVID-19 to attack President Trump. Last month, she gleefully speculated that this pandemic could be “Trump’s Katrina.”

“I was thinking about this in terms of politics, the business community, kinda finally not sticking with Donald Trump. This may be, you know Nicolle, I should mention this with a little trepidation, but this may be Donald Trump’s Katrina,” Princeton University Professor Eddie Glaude Jr. said while appearing on her show.

“Let’s just lean into that for a minute. Katrina was the moment when all of the things that felt incredibly incompetent about the Bush presidency…were realized,” a clearly-excited Wallace said.

Wallace, who served as George W. Bush’s White House communications director, went on to claim Bush’s response to Katrina gave his critics a “proof point” that he was “incompetent.”
