'That Makes Me Sweat! That Is Vile!': MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace Gets Flustered and Pledges to Stop Airing Sarah Sanders' Craven Lies

MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace fumed Wednesday about the lies and hypocrisy emanating from the White House, showing particular disdain for press secretary Sarah Sanders' defense earlier in the day of President Donald Trump's attacks on the media.

"While we certainly support freedom of the press, we support freedom of speech and we think those things go hand in hand," Sanders said in a clip played on Wallace's show "Deadline: White House."

After the clip finished airing, Wallace had a look of disgust on her face.

"We're not going to air that anymore," Wallace said. "Let's make that the last Sarah Huckabee Sanders clip at 4 o'clock. That is it. You know, that makes me sweat! That is vile!" 

"That made me sweat!" she repeated, actually wiping her brow. "This is someone who complains about a restaurant that exercises their First Amendment right to kick out someone 'obliterating democratic norms' — that made me sweat."

John Heilemann then chimed in:"The prepared answer where she talked about the responsibilities of the press and talked about Osama bin Laden was just a pack of lies. So the prepared answer was a pack of lies, and then we got that". 

"I'm gathering myself," Wallace said, before introducing a clip recounting some of Trump's bogus claims. "Let's watch some lies."
