MSNBC Host Attempts To Stop Democrats’ Infighting, Tells Them 'Trump is The Enemy'
DNC announces ending fundraising threshold from its debate qualifications
MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace tried to stop the "Democrats fight amongst themselves," during the news network's coverage of the Iowa caucuses, declaring President Donald Trump is "the enemy."
Wallace's comments came after guests, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson and Nina Turner, argued describing Presidential candidate, Michael Bloomberg as an "oligarch."
“Can I say something? Jason Johnson is a frequent guest on my show," said Wallace.
"I think this is a really important debate, and I’m really glad you didn’t let it get boiled down to the use of a word. It is not about a word," she added.
"Here’s the other — and I understand different views about the system."
"The enemy is the guy in the Oval Office who thinks there are good people on both sides in Charlottesville,” said Wallace.
“The enemy is the guy in the Oval Office who got a permission slip to cheat in presidential elections."
"The enemy is a guy who calls his generals dopes and losers."
"I am nauseous when I see Democrats fight amongst themselves," she continued.
The Democrats infighting came as President Donald Trump sailed to an easy victory in the Iowa Republican caucuses on Monday, giving an early indication that GOP challengers have almost zero chance of taking on the incumbent.
On Friday, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced it was killing the fundraising threshold from its debate qualifications it had used for the seven previous debate, allowing Bloomberg to take the stage at a Democratic debate in Nevada.
Following the announcement, Bernie Sanders senior adviser Jeff Weaver described it as “the definition of a rigged system.”
“To now change the rules in the middle of the game to accommodate Mike Bloomberg, who is trying to buy his way into the Democratic nomination, is wrong,” Weaver told Politico.
“That’s the definition of a rigged system."
"The DNC changing its debate criteria to ignore grassroots donations seems tailor-made to get Mike Bloomberg on the debate stage in February. Having Americans willing to invest in your campaign is a key sign of a successful campaign," Andrew Yang tweeted.
“Let’s make one thing clear: changing the rules now to accommodate Mike Bloomberg and not changing them in the past to ensure a more diverse debate stage is just plain wrong,” Steyer said in a statement.
“The Democratic Party should be doing everything possible to ensure a diverse field of candidates. Instead, they are changing the rules for a candidate who is ignoring early states voters and grassroots donors.”
