Conservative Nicolle Wallace Mocks Trump, Compares Him to Her 5-Year-Old

MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace made a keen observation about President Donald Trump after calling him a "little teacup, short and stout" over the "whistling teapot" analogy of his explosive outbursts.


“I think I’m the only one at the table with a 5-year-old, but dealing with Trump is parallel to raising toddlers,” she said.

Wallace explained that the network chooses to "cover his mood" because he becomes "dramatic and reckless" when he receives information that he doesn't like.

A "close Trump ally" told Wallace before the broadcast that Trump could "rip the country apart" while trying to divert attention from bad news about himself.

“I think we cover his state of mind, because everyone is afraid of what he might do in this state of mind,” she concluded.
