In an apparent attempt to outdo her outrageous segment from last week, MSNBC Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace used part of her show not to condemn foreign interference in our elections but to call for other countries to administer them for us. She said this to Democratic Congressman Jim Himes of Connecticut who seemed to suggest that, while he was opposed to the idea now, he could be open to it at some point.
“I don't want to get off topic but if you read through the papers this weekend, the threats to our elections in – what, two and a half weeks – are so pervasive and they’re dire and they include violence,” she proclaimed, without evidence.
She then suggested that the U.S. needed other countries to come in and run our elections for us and treat us like a destabilized, war-torn country. “I mean, do you think it's time to ask for friends and allies to come over and help us monitor our elections? We used to do that in other burgeoning and threatened democracies,” she pressed.
