MSNBC's Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace couldn’t help but make the 18 year anniversary of the deadliest terror attack on American soil about herself and her peers in the press. In a tweet Wednesday evening, Wallace admitted the first thing she thinks about on this solemn day of remembrance, is how the press is under attack by President Trump.
Wednesday, Wallace tweeted the following: “I was in the WH on 9/11 -after 3rd plane crashed we evacuated with the WH press corps on orders from the USSS who pointed up and said “they’re coming.” We ran out the NW gate together-potential targets of terrorists. When Trump calls press enemy of the people I think of this day.”
Ironically, Wallace began her afternoon television program Wednesday slamming Trump for making the day about himself by attacking his 2020 rivals and the media on Twitter:
“Not even a trip to the Pentagon to honor the victims of 9/11 on this solemn anniversary slowed the president's steady stream of complaints and attacks today. Most of those grievances aired on his Twitter feed,” Wallace complained to begin her show. Later she added:
I don't have any recollection of any past president using this anniversary and sort of between events which Donald Trump did attend to honor the anniversary of 9/11, firing of tweets, attacking the press, attacking the polls and attacking his rivals on his Twitter feed and in that Oval Office meeting we showed.
