Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House,” host Nicolle Wallace said her shoes had “more integrity and character” than President Donald Trump.
Wallace said, “Let me ask you something about —that has to be exasperating to Democrats. I mean, I worked for Republican politicians who navigated the evangelical vote very carefully. I mean, George W. Bush disappointed evangelicals when he didn’t make an even bigger effort to pass a marriage amendment. He also disappointed the majority of Americans who thought that was a terrible idea. Donald Trump who has, you know, my flats have more integrity and character than he does — has in the words of Sam Nunberg in The Washington Post quote ‘the president is correct believing his solid group of supporters including evangelicals and Protestants are not going to leave him on this issue. He’s delivered for them on judges which is really the most important issue and on life. A reference to abortion policy.’ How did Democrats sort of counter a politician for whom none of his deeds are worthy of any demerits and the single action of appointing judges they like is enough to erase everything else?”
Former Hillary Clinton communications director and former White House communications director under President Barack Obama Jennifer Palmieri added, “We did feel that in the 2016 ad campaign I would say, particularly at the third debate where judges and abortion were a big part of the debate and we felt Republicans come home to Trump afterward. And that’s when we started to get into trouble because, and I understand what’s the beliefs that are behind, you know, people that — there are people who that is a single issue that trumps all others.”
