Nicolle Wallace Apologizes for ‘Poorly Chosen Words’ Asking If Reporters Want to Wring Sarah Sanders’ Neck
MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace apologized tonight for comments she made about reporters’ increasing frustrations with Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Wallace spoke with Kristen Welker following her confrontation with the Press Secretary over the vile comments a White House aide made about John McCain and Huckabee Sanders’ dodging on the issue.
After a clip from that exchange played, the MSNBC host asked, “How do you resist the temptation to run up and wring her neck? Why can’t she just say, ‘If a staffer said that, we’re gonna get to the bottom of it and should be fired’?”
The segment got some attention online after first being flagged by The Washington Examiner. Wallace later took to Twitter to apologize for making her point with that particular word choice.
When I asked about whether the tension in the briefing room ever makes reporters want to wring the neck of the spokesman, I used poorly chosen words, & for that I’m sorry. I was trying to imagine the exasperation of getting spin & not answers re: John Mccain being “about to die”
