MSNBC Slimes Fox Competitor Laura Ingraham as ‘Chickenshit’

Listen to the Article!

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, who earlier this year said falsely said that Donald Trump is “talking about exterminating Latinos,” on Tuesday struck again. She lashed out at Fox News host Laura Ingraham, calling her “chickenshit.” 

Wallace played a clip of Ingraham talking about Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, who is testifying in front of the impeachment probe. The MSNBC host attacked Ingraham and her guests Alan Dershowitz and John Yoo for criticizing him: “Those people aren't chickenshit like the three of you and know he passed a background check that the president's daughter and son-in-law didn't.” 

 

 

Vindman has an inspirational life story and has devotedly served his country. Here’s the exchange from Fox News: 

INGRAHAM: Here we have a U.S. national security official who is advising Ukraine while working inside the White House apparently against the President's interests and usually they spoke in English. Isn't that kind of an interesting angle on this story? 

YOO (Attorney and George W. Bush administration Deputy Assistant U.S. Attorney General in the Office of Legal Counsel): I find that astounding, and, you know, some people might call that espionage. 

Wallace lashed out: 

WALLACE: Except those people aren't chickenshit like the three of you and know he passed a background check that the president's daughter and son-in-law didn't. 

DONNY DEUTSCH: Did you just say what I think you said? 

WALLACE: I don’t know. [Laughs. Donny Deutsch claps.]

Wallace is in no position to offer moral judgments. She had to apologize in August after falsely accusing Trump of “talking about exterminating Latinos.” She has also joked about “punching” the President and wondered if the Trump women are “dead inside.” Here’s a montage of Wallace’s bizarre, unhinged hate

NICOLLE WALLACE: After the break, the smear campaign against Alexander Vindman was a classic Trump-inspired, Fox News, GOP operation, greased with a prime time appearance and an accusation that Vindman might be a spy.

WALLACE: Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, who is right now testifying in the impeachment probe, represents the beating heart of the quintessential American story. He and his family, Jewish refugees carrying only their suitcases and $750, that’s based on reporting in The New York Times, fled the Soviet Union when he was three years old in search of a better life. His father worked multiple jobs and learned English at night so his son could grow up, graduate from college, receive a military commission and serve the United States in the form of multiple overseas tours. On combat deployment in Iraq in 2003, Vindman was injured by an IED. He was awarded a Purple Heart. Vindman has a master's degree from Harvard. He's worked in several embassies and joined the National Security Council last year after passing extensive background check, unlike some other West Wing advisers we know. His biography and life of service make the attacks against him remarkable. At a time when attacks on once sacred institutions and their leaders have stopped being noteworthy of newsworthy. Trump went from not knowing him to calling him a never Trumper in the course of an hour and a half this morning. But that's nothing compared to the smear campaign happening on cable news.

WALLACE: I don’t know. [LAUGHS]
