Frustrated by Lack of Cordiality in the White House, MSNBC’s Wallace Proposes ‘Wringing’ Sarah Sander’s Neck

After all, when they go low, we go… just as low…

MSNBC daytime anchor, Nicolle Wallace, is currently facing massive backlash amid comments on her show Deadline: White House on Friday. The widely publicised debacle took place with a visibly flustered Wallace rhetorically asking how White House reporter Kristen Welker maintained her calm amid calculated pivoting and evasion on the part of White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Much of the discussion on Friday’s show revolved around White House staffer Kelly Sadler’s joke that ailing John McCain is irrelevant because “he’s dying anyway.” Wallace, who worked on the McCain/Palin campaign in 2008, responded to Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ impolite avoidance of the matter… in words that weren’t exactly civil:

“Kristen Welker, how do you resist the temptation to run up and wring her neck? Why can’t she just say, ‘If a staffer said that, we’re going to get to the bottom of it and she’ll be fired?’”

Wallace went on to claim that she couldn’t tell “the difference anymore between Baghdad Bob and Sarah Sanders,”—Baghdad Bob, referring to Saddam Hussein’s Information Minister, Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf, a farcical character tasked with sustenance of the Iraqi regime via mass misinformation.

Wallace has since apologized for her “poorly chosen words” yesterday, though wording the act of choking someone seems a bit off-color—regardless of what vocabulary is employed.
