Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House,” host Nicolle Wallace expressed her displeasure over Alabama Republican citizens settling on former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore over Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL) an evening previous in a GOP number one runoff election for U.S. Senate.
Wallace, admitting she used to be “mad” and “riled up” about the result, requested if different Republicans would again Moore given his previous.
“I guess the question is though, John — is anyone in the Senate, any Republicans going to say, ‘I don’t want to be in the same party as Roy Moore. I’m not going to be for him. I’m not endorsing him. I’m not backing him because that could save the Republican,’” Wallace mentioned. “You may lose a seat, but you might save the Republican Party.”
“This guy has said things that are so abhorrent, I can’t say them on cable,” she added. “You think Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan — you think all these guys are going to get behind him?”
Commentary mag editor John Podhoretz answered noting that McConnell had already made a commentary announcing he would do what it took to get Moore elected to the U.S. Senate. Wallace replied, announcing that McConnell deserved the ousting as Senate Majority Leader via the “coup” in which Moore would possibly take part.
“He’s going to do that, then Roy Moore is going to help run a coup to get him out of his seat and Mitch McConnell, you’ll deserve,” she mentioned.
