In the wake of Sean Spicer announcing he will be leaving his post, one liberal news outlet made an outrageous claim that President Trump wants “better-looking men” in his administration.
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace made the statement on-air Friday while speaking to host Andrea Mitchell over the phone about Spicer resigning as White House Press Secretary, over his alleged opposition to Anthony Scaramucci being appointed as the new communications director.
At one point during the segment, Wallace – a former communications chief for the Bush administration — said about the administration’s latest shake-up: “These are not all the president’s men, these are all of Sean Hannity’s men.”
“Jay Sekulow is now the face of the legal effort, and Scaramucci is a frequent face on Fox News… these are two close friends. I understand that they are the kinds of faces and the kinds of fighters Donald Trump wanted to infuse the image of his White House,” she opined. (Scroll down for more, plus video.)
In response to Mitchell’s question about Scaramucci’s lack of government experience, Wallace took aim at the president, saying “everybody here knows that Donald Trump is not a man steeped in the machinations of policy making, or the ups and downs of a presidency.”
“He knows scant presidential, or frankly world history,” she added. “This is about the president hiring better frontmen, the president continuing to be obsessed with how he’s perceived on cable news.”
But, the insults didn’t stop there. Wallace continued to slam the White House and even made an absurd claim about the type of men Trump wants spreading his message.
“I wish this were a story about a really important job inside the White House, a post that speaks for the country and the president around the world,” she said. “But this is about Donald Trump wanting better-looking men spreading his message.”
