Conservative MSNBC Host Nicolle Wallace Calls Trump a 'Hamburger-Eating Zamboni-Riding Loon'

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace blasted Speaker Paul Ryan for allowing President Donald Trump and House Intel Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) to undermine America’s law enforcement and intelligence communities during “Deadline: White House” on Tuesday.

“So the dossier, which was provided to the FBI by a source who’s not just credible to American intelligence… he is credible all over the world because he’s a former British spy and he’s an expert on Russia,” Wallace noted.

“The standard was probable cause. The dossier has not been proven false. A third of it’s been proven true,” Wallace reminded.

“Donald Trump, I truly believe doesn’t know any better. I believe he’s the hamburger-eating, Zamboni-riding loon we see TV and on Twitter, but Paul Ryan knows better,” Wallace blasted.

“Paul Ryan’s behavior has been disgraceful,” NBC News national affairs analyst John Heilemann agreed.

“This guy’s behavior was the kind of behavior that in any other instance — if it wasn’t for the fact that Donald Trump was unhappy about it — any other in instance, every Republican in the world would say, of course, there should be surveillance on this guy, it looks like he’s doing business with Russian spies,” Heilemann explained.

“Stormy Daniels suggests the most salacious [allegations] probably are true. I’m serious,” Wallace noted.

“Let’s just be real here, [the dossier] is thought of not being true because of the golden showers and the sex. Okay? Let’s just lay it out,” Wallace suggested.

“I think that the Stormy Daniels and the $130,000 payment to a porn star make the most salacious things among the most credible,” Wallace suggested.

“Certainly they’re worth revisiting,” Associated Press White House reporter Jonathan Lemire suggested. “You learn more and more about Donald Trump’s private life, you think it’s possible it could be true.”

“I wish it had stayed private. I want to un-hear all these things,” Wallace admitted.
