WATCH: Nicolle Wallace Absolutely Eviscerates Steve Scalise Over Trump Lies
This weekend, Steve Scalise appeared on Chris Wallace’s Fox News show. The host pressed the number 2 House Republican about whether Joe Biden won the 2020 election or not. Scalise hemmed and hawed, avoiding answering the question and talking more about process.
This performance drew the condemnation of not only Liz Cheney, but Nicolle Wallace as well. On Monday, the MSNBC host went on on the Louisiana congressman.
“Millions of Americans have been sold a fraud — that the election was stolen. Republicans have a duty to tell the American people that this is not true. Perpetuating the big lie is an attack on the core of our constitutional republic. It was punctuated over the weekend when more Republican leaders, guys like Senator Chuck Grassley, playing to Donald Trump at a rally of thousands. Standing right there, close by his side. Embracing him and his message.”
After playing a clip of Scalise, the host continued, “It is all happening. Here’s how you know it is B.S. Here’s how you know Steve Scalise knows it’s all bullsh*, he could call on them to resign. Because if those states were messed up, then they’re not real congressmen, are they? Why don’t the Republicans have the courage of their convictions to go all the way? Trump is the spark but the Republicans are the oxygen. There is no slide to autocracy.”
