MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace: ‘Are Republicans dead inside?’

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace is having trouble understanding Republicans.

Accusing Republicans of bringing up “fake scandals” to distract from the Russia investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Wallace wondered “Why don’t they want to get to the bottom of Russian collusion? Why don’t they care about that?”

During a discussion with a panel on Wednesday, the MSNBC political analyst questioned if Republicans were “dead inside” because of their criticisms of the FBI and Mueller.

“Let me put this to you one more time. Are Republicans dead inside?” Wallace asked.  “Why don’t Republicans care that a Republican-led justice department, a Republican-led FBI, led by men appointed by Donald Trump is being smeared and the character of the men leading those agencies assassinated by people associated with the Republican party, not the Democratic party?”

Panelist and former director of the Congressional Budget Office, Doug Holtz-Eakin, simply said he could not offer an answer. But his suggestion that a lot of Republicans don’t want to “poke the bear,” referring to Trump, sent Wallace into another meltdown.

She declared that it was “absurd” that Republicans were “afraid” of Trump’s tweets, calling it “the most pathetic thing I’ve heard all year.”

Wallace’s rant came one day after her confrontation with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie who did not back down from her liberal attack accusing the president, Republicans and even conservative media  of trying to “malign” the FBI and Mueller.

Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz said the Mueller probe “has been proven to be biased” against Trump, during an interview with Fox News on Wednesday.

“It’s time for Bob Mueller to put up or shut up,” he said.  “If there’s evidence of collusion, let’s see it, if there’s not, let’s move on as a country.”
