MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace on Thursday asked if First Lady Melania Trump and First Daughter Ivanka Trump are either “dead inside,” or just “paid off.”
“You know more about the Trump women, the Trump family than anyone,” Wallace said to Vanity Fair reporter Emily Jane Fox.
“Are they just the most stoic human beings? Are they numb? Are they dead inside? Are they paid off?” Wallace asked.
“Yes, yes, and yes,” Fox responded. “They do not see President Trump the same way all of us see President Trump. They have such a distorted image of who he is that they don’t have the kind of reaction we do."
“They seem to be raising nice kids,” Wallace said. “How do they wall it off?”
“You are looking at this as a rational person,” Fox said. “But I have written this a million times - Ivanka Trump is the most masterful compartmentalizer that America has maybe ever seen,” Fox continued.
It’s difficult to put in words how pathetic this segment is. Have these two perhaps considered the fact that Melania and Ivanka see the president differently because he’s a member of their family? Does supporting a family member through their best and worst times equivalate to being “dead inside?” Is caring for a loved one having a “distorted image” of them? Is it fair to say a Vanity Fair reporter “knows more about the Trump family than anyone?”
Is it “rational” to believe all of this?
I knew Trump would drive MSNBC crazy, but I never thought it would reach this level.
