Nicolle Wallace Slams ‘Coup Plotter’ Republicans Over Speaker Stunt: ‘They’re Not Rebels’
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace called out the 20 Republicans who have refused to vote for Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to become Speaker of the House.
“Let’s be a little more blunt than that,” Wallace began. “They’re not rebels. I’m not going to use that word. They’re coup plotters, 19 House Republicans were in the Roosevelt Room, which is four steps away from the Oval Office helping Donald Trump plan overturn the results of the 2016 election, which sent all of them back! Their names were on all the ballots there were trying to destroy and denigrate and smear, and call into question.”
She went on to cite some of the worst offenders in the group like Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is under criminal investigation for child sex trafficking. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), she said, likes to put weapons of war into the hands of children.
“I don’t have the full list up but at least a handful of them are under federal criminal scrutiny for their role on Jan. 6th,” Wallace continued. “So, they’re not rebels, they’re coup plotters. They’re insurrectionists, and they’re anarchists. So, I worry that they’re being described as rebels who have a few good policy ideas in terms of governance and if is their will to knock out Kevin McCarthy. I have been covering Kevin McCarthy’s lack of that body part called a spine for years. I have no affinity for Kevin McCarthy, but Kevin McCarthy didn’t just tolerate Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar. He refused to purge them.”
