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.

You can watch the clip in question above, via MSNBC.
