When Antifa thugs stirred up drama last year at the Charlottesville rally, where a feud between them and white supremacists led to the death of an innocent protester, MSNBC contributor and pretend “conservative” commentator Nicolle Wallace praised them as “good people” on “the side of angels.”
But when supporters of President Donald Trump merely heckled CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta at a rally this week — in part because of their frustration with all the lies that CNN routinely tells — Wallace responded differently.
This time she lashed out, aiming her fury specifically at White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Why Sanders? Because when asked during Tuesday’s briefing about the hecklers’ behavior, Sanders said, “While we certainly support freedom of the press, we support freedom of speech and we think those things go hand in hand.”
“We’re not going to air that anymore!” Wallace shouted Wednesday morning on “Morning Joe” after playing a clip of Sanders speaking at Tuesday’s briefing. “Let’s make that the last Sarah Huckabee Sanders clip at 4 o’clock. That is it. You know, that makes me sweat! That is vile!”
“That made me sweat!” she repeated in unhinged anger and frustration. “This is someone who complains about a restaurant that exercises their First Amendment right to kick out someone ‘obliterating democratic norms’ — that made me sweat.”
Her hypocrisy and lack of awareness is astounding. For some inexplicable reason, Wallace sees an equivalence between Trump supporters at a Trump rally heckling the media, and Sanders and her family being kicked out of a restaurant and subsequently harassed.
It wouldn’t be a shocker to learn that Wallace also sees an equivalence between what happened at the Trump rally this week and what’s happened to the countless Trump supporters and administration officials who’ve been bullied, assaulted, beaten up and/or robbed.
Wallace’s hypocrisy was certainly not lost on the denizens of social media.
What is utterly maniacal about this clip is the hypocrisy of these panelists who have said nil a word about the numerous conservatives who have been physically assaulted recently….one pompous, arrogant, self-righteous reporter gets heckled at a TRUMP rally and its Armageddon?

I’m usually a calm person but these #FakeNews idiots are testing my patience. First Amendment for “some” I guess. And not a peep out of these liars about the violence & hate the left has been showing. @NicolleDWallace You are very dumb. You have shown us how small minded you are.

Do any of these people remember Steve Scalise being shot because he is a Republican?

To answer the last user’s question, those in the media do remember. They just don’t care. Neither does Wallace, who happens to be one of MSNBC’s most notorious hypocrites. She’s the same woman who whines about Trump’s alleged sexism in one breath and then describes female members of the president’s administration as being “dead inside” in another.
