Nicolle Wallace Slams Wall Street Journal’s Condemnation of Donald Trump

The conservative Wall Street Journal's condemnation of Donald Trump for his recent violent rhetoric sounded a little hollow to MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace.
On Monday's Deadline: White House, Wallace welcomed the Rupert Murdoch-owned newspaper's denunciation of Trump's proposal on his Truth Social platform that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) issue a "DEATH WISH." for supporting "Democrat Sponsored Bills."
But the Journal was "seven years late for the parade," Wallace said, noting his past support of Trump. The Journal has repeatedly turned Trump on his head, even publishing a letter from him last year containing unverified conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.

The Journal "washed and legitimized the presidency of Donald Trump more than perhaps any other newspaper," said Wallace, White House communications director for former President George W. Bush.
"You are as much to blame as any other news organization in this country for his presidency and his continued viability as a political figure," she added.
In its editorial, the publication's board of directors warned of the real consequences of Trump's words.
It wrote:
Mr. Trump's apologists claim he merely meant that Mr. McConnell had a political death wish, but that is not what he wrote. It's all too easy to imagine a fanatic taking Mr. Trump seriously and literally and attempting to kill Mr. McConnell. Many supporters took Mr. Trump's rhetoric about former Vice President Mike Pence all too seriously on Jan. 6.
