Talk about hypocrisy.
Nicolle Wallace, the habitual Sarah Palin-trasher, criticized the hosts of the The View on Monday for trashing GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, saying nobody wants to see women smear other women.
“I don’t think anyone wants to see women do a takedown of other women,” Wallace reportedly said on Monday’s Morning Joe on MSNBC. “To me this isn’t these women at their best.”
Wallace, the former co-host on The View who was canned because she was not compelling and way too boring, was referring to The View hosts saying that Fiorina’s face at the last GOP debate looked “demented” and like a “Halloween mask.”
Florina appeared on the program last Friday and co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked her, “How will you get a thicker skin to accept some of the humorous things that will be said about you?”
Fiorina responded: “Well, hey, if you meant your comment about my face being demented and a Halloween mask as humorous, so be it.”
Wallace’s remarks are noteworthy and rich, especially since she has been arguably one of the most prominent Palin-bashers.
Throwing Palin under the bus to try to conceal her and Steve Schmidt’s gross incompetence during the 2008 presidential campaign, Wallace endeared herself to the mainstream media and elevated her standing on the left by trashing Palin in front of the cameras and behind the scenes to the media elites in Washington and New York.
She even trashed Palin on David Letterman’s show when she told Letterman, who once made a joke about the statutory rape of Palin’s then-14-year-old daughter, that a Palin speech displayed “the gaps in her knowledge… and that’s what became obvious not just to the public but to us, and that was sort of chilling.”
On The View, Wallace said that she first met Palin after an emergency root canal and “was on Vicodin and I’m like, it must be the drugs.” Newsbusters pointed out then that Wallace was showing again that “she’s obsessed with attacking Sarah Palin.”
