'Let Us Know Where You Stand, Sean': MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace Challenges Hannity to Respond to Trump's Lack of 'Decency'

MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace expressed her disgust Friday with President Donald Trump's recent out-of-the-blue attack on former President George H.W. Bush's Points of Light Foundation, noting that even his supporters are often uncomfortable with his attitude toward notable veterans.


She wondered aloud if Fox News' Sean Hannity would speak out against this tendency and even challenged him to respond to Trump's lack of "decency."

"Trump is grosser than even some of his closest allies on the far right and fringy right media," she said, discussing the comments on her show "Deadline: White House."

"That's right," said Associated Press reporter Jonathan Lemire in response, but he argued that the president allies are likely to become crasser as they follow the president.

"I don't know," she said. "I'd be surprised tonight if Sean Hannity defends the attacks on the 41st president's charity."

"Sure. But I'd be actually surprised if he condemns them. He'll probably just let them go," said Lemire.

Turning to the camera, Wallace grinned and addressed Hannity directly.

"Let us know where you stand, Sean. Tweet me, text me. Air another clip tonight," she said, referring to his habit of airing clips of her show. "I love it when you do that."
