MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace in contrast Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney’s views on “the existential risk of Trumpism” to the specter of radical Islamic terrorism after the September 11 assaults, even mentioning the congresswoman’s father, former Vice President Dick Cheney.
Wallace made the feedback Wednesday throughout a section of her present, “Deadline: White Home,” about the January 6 committee.
“One of many issues I take into consideration on a regular basis is Liz Cheney’s view of the existential risk of Trumpism as representing flashing pink, hazard to our democracy,” she mentioned. “I labored along with her within the days and months and years after 9/11. It’s the similar approach she talked about, and albeit her father talked about, the risk the homeland confronted after 9/11.”
“She views Trump as an existential hazard to our democracy,” Wallace continued, earlier than turning to NBC Information presidential historian Michael Beschloss.
Beschloss responded that Cheney’s function “makes an enormous distinction,” then agreed Trump is a “hazard to democracy” and thanked God for Cheney.
“I’ve thought that Donald Trump was a possible hazard to democracy and every year that handed, I used to be extra satisfied that he was. And thank God for Liz Cheney who mainly could have sacrificed her elected political career with a purpose to be one of many uncommon Republican leaders that’s standing up and saying this man is not any conservative,” he continued.
“He’s a radical risk to democratic establishments. That’s a radical. That’s a revolutionary. That’s a risk to America, there’s nothing conservative about that,” mentioned Beschloss.
Earlier in June, Wallace, a former Republican, appeared to assert ‘an essential half’ of the GOP base is ‘domestic violent extremists.’
