On Tuesday, the host of MSNBC’s Deadline: White House had a very special guest on with her: Former Republican Congressman David Jolly of Florida, who was on hand to discuss essentially how out-of-control the White House has become during the Trump administration.
Host Nicole Wallace began the panel discussion bemoaning the fact that she can’t just come out on her show and say what everyone is thinking — which is that all of the “vacillation” and dodging, all of the lies and obfuscation, are “BS,” as she puts it.
Don’t we all, Nicole:
I know we have to come out and say something, but I wish that what we could come out and do is just call B.S. on him.”
Congressman Jolly at this point has clearly been chomping at the bit for his opportunity to speak up, and he absolutely does not disappoint:
Listen, the president’s most authentic moments are when he’s lying … He misled the American people on Russia, on North Korea, and White House personnel … Bob Mueller is at his doorstep and he doesn’t know what to do about it when it comes to Russia. When it come to personnel, this is somebody who hired somebody off of The Apprentice, Hope Hicks was an unqualified communications director from the fashion industry, you have a chief of staff who made a deal with the devil … and a son-in-law and a daughter who are completely unqualified to do their work.”
A stunned Wallace laughed nervously as she said, “But other than that…”
All of this is well known to everyone who’s been following the news. But it’s truly refreshing to hear someone from the president’s own party tell it like it is. And when Robert Mueller has his way, America will be presented with a comprehensive timeline of not just all of the blunders that Rep. Jolly laid out, but how it all went down.
