MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace has earned a reputation for her blistering criticism of President Donald Trump.

Wallace's criticism is especially brutal because she previously served as the communications director for President George W. Bush's White House.

But she's not feeling the love for the GOP any longer.

Wallace especially hates the way Trump has no grasp on policy issues and recklessly bases his decisions upon whatever news coverage he happens to be watching.

“It’s like voting on The Voice. You watch and then you text your choice. He literally is watching coverage of himself and changing his positions on social media.”

Watch Wallace discuss Trump's dangerously vapid style of policymaking below.
