MSNBC's Wallace: 'We Feel Like We're Fire Hosing Our Viewers' by Taking Trump Live


Nicolle Wallace, host of MSNBC's Deadline: White House, appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers Tuesday night. Not surprisingly, it did not take long for the Trump-bashing to begin. When asked by Meyers why she did not read aloud President Trump's tweets where he "attacked those four Congresswomen in a racist way," Wallace responded: "We as a show have made a lot of choices about not repeating the most hateful things that come out of the White House." Wallace went on to talk about how "having worked there, I think I'm particularly triggered by the use of the White House property, the White House lawn, the Press Secretary's podium, for...for spewing hate speech, for spewing lies so we stopped airing Sarah Sanders' briefings, we don't take Donald Trump live." According to Wallace, "we feel like we're fire hosing our viewers by doing that."
