During Thursday’s edition of Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace and her panel devoted an entire segment to fawning over Oprah Winfrey, who held a campaign rally for Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams earlier in the day. Moveon.org’s Karine Jean-Pierre highlighted “the stark difference” between Winfrey, who “reaches for the heart,” and President Trump, who she claimed is “fear mongering.”  A discussion ensued about how black women were the “only demographic that never fell for Trump,” with  Jean-Pierre  saying that black women opposed President Trump because he reminded them of a Civil Rights-era villain: “They saw him and they were like, this guy is too familiar. I remember this guy, you know, when I was marching or when Dr. King was fighting for civil rights. Oh no, this is too scary. I don't want to go back.” Wallace then predicted that “black women are going to dig us out of the hole Trump put us in” before discussing how her former co-host on The View, Whoopi Goldberg, predicted that President Trump would win the Presidential election at a time when he was talking about not letting people fighting Ebola back into the country.”  Wallace described then-candidate Trump’s idea as “xenophobia, the Ebola chapter,” describing it as “one of the most underreported and underremembered chapters of Donald Trump’s xenophobia and his fear of the other and his sort of hostility to the good works that people do when they leave this country.”
