From border security to tax cuts, trade deals that benefit America, a strong, unleashed military, patriotism, God, country, and even standing for the national anthem, President Trump’s Tuesday night State of the Union Address hit the high points of not only what makes America great, but how his administration plans to make it even greater.
The speech was on topic, drawing on examples of others in the gallery to display the spirit of America. President Trump outlined his vision and his administration’s accomplishments, but markedly did not draw attention to himself.
But leave it to Trump-hating MSNBC contributor (and former Republican) Nicolle Wallace to see a “sad obsession with being liked,” where others just saw a positive, uplifting speech.
“I thought it revealed Donald Trump’s deep and almost sad obsession with being liked,” Wallace said the camera showed Trump shaking hands with attendees as he exited the building. “I mean, he is always performing for audience watching. He was obviously aware that this audience tonight is different from the audience that tunes in to the kinds of one-on-one interviews he grants as president. And those are usually interviews granted to friendly anchors at Fox News.”
Now, how on earth could anyone, even an MSNBC panelist who used to be a conservative, get “Trump’s deep and almost sad obsession with being liked” out of a speech like that?
Greta Van Susteren wondered the same thing…
Whether you are a Repub or a Dem, you have to wonder how Nicolle Wallace came up with this one (below) after she watched the SOTU- is she just making stuff up? pic.twitter.com/bG2mbtyTdU

And the insanity wasn’t over yet…
“You mean he was speaking to a broader audience and was aware of that?” asked a co-anchor.
“I mean he was aware, as a TV figure, that the TV audience included people outside of the primetime audience at Fox News,” said Wallace. “But I don’t think we should sugarcoat what for a normal president would be sort of jaw-dropping elements of this speech. There is a line getting a lot of attention as basically an attack on the deep states, saying that I call on Congress to empower every cabinet secretary with the authority to reward good workers and remove would those who undermine the public trust and fail the American people. That’s people who undermine the trust, that sounds like his deep state conspiracy.”
Riiiight… there is no “deep state,” nor, apparently, are there any workers who would “undermine the public trust and fail the American people,” according to Wallace.
One can’t help but wonder what Wallace’s comment will be when the Nunes memo is finally released.
