'I'm Just Disgusted!': MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace Unleashes Her Outrage About Trump's Self-Serving Meeting with Kanye During Multiple National Crises

While the United States faces multiple national crises — including a deadly and devastating Hurricane plowing through the Southeast and rising tensions with ally Saudi Arabia over reports that it murdered Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi — President Donald Trump decided on Thursday to host the spectacle of a lunch with Kanye West in the Oval Office.


MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace called out the absurd display on her show "Deadline: White House" as her guests argued that the lunch with West was designed to bolster Trump's ego.

"How, with people dead in Florida and a green card holder, a journalist for the Washington Post, missing and possibly dismembered — how are we talking about the president's needs?" she said. "I'm just disgusted! How do our conversations always go to his primal needs for attention!"

MSNBC Host Chris Wallace later chimed in: "This same guy, Kanye, said George W. Bush didn't care about black people during [Hurricane] Katrina."

"I remember," said Nicolle Wallace, a former staffer at the Bush White House.

"And in the middle of Hurricane Michael, this guy says, 'I like you!'" Chris Wallace said. "A little contradiction there."
