Nicolle Wallace has had it with Republicans not standing up to President Donald Trump.

On Thursday’s edition of Deadline: White House, the former White House Communications Director in the George W. Bush administration went off on House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) for cowering to Trump following Wednesday’s debt limit deal with Democrats.

Wallace asked panelist Doug Holtz-Eakin of the Center-Right think tank American Action Forum how Ryan should handle this latest public affront from Trump. Holtz-Eakin began to say that he believes Ryan should handle it exactly as he did on Thursday. Wallace took umbrage with this sentiment.

“With his tail between his legs walk out and admit he was totally humiliated by the president that he’s taken guff from for seven months?!” Wallace said.

She continued by taking a shot at Paul Ryan’s manhood.

Why can’t Paul Ryan be a man and say ‘He’s treated me like crap. He’s cyberbullied me. You know, I bit my tongue when he did things that were racist and misogynist but I’m done with that. I’m going to speak my mind.’

A strong message from, in our view, a perfect messenger — given her Republican bonafides.
