Rosie Perez to View Co-Host Nicolle Wallace: Did You Want to Just ‘Pop’ Palin?

When Nicolle Wallace introduced herself to the View audience this morning, she made it clear at the outset she’s a Republican (Rosie O’Donnell promised she still likes Wallace anyway). But later on in the show, the others couldn’t resist asking her about one person in particular that she worked with: Sarah Palin.

Whoopi Goldberg couldn’t get through asking about Palin with a straight face, and Rosie Perez jumped in with a few questions of her own. She asked Wallace, “One, what was it like when you first met her? Two, did the winking get on your nerves? And three, when did you want to just pop her?”

Wallace laughed a bit before explaining that the first time she met Palin, she was on Vicodin and had absolutely no idea who she was. And while Palin was “cool” at first, Wallace said, “Our relationship really erupted and exploded, and it was irreparably damaged after the Katie Couric interview when she thought I set her up for failure and I felt like the questions were pretty fair.”

Wallace has rather infamously expressed her frustrations with working on that campaign with Palin in the past, and her reaction to that HBO movie Game Change about the McCain-Palin campaign was that it was “true enough to make me squirm.”
