MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “cover-up” remarks about President Donald Trump “seemed to unravel him psychologically” during the press conference in the Rose Garden.
On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said:
“We believe the President of the United States is engaged in a cover-up. In a cover-up. And that was the measure that we need.”
“Deadline: White House” host said on Wednesday that the president may have been sent over the edge by Pelosi’s remarks. She also compared Trump’s “I don’t do cover-ups” comment to former President Richard Nixon’s “I’m not a crook” remarks.
“Donald Trump’s ‘I don’t do cover-ups’ [is] an undeniable echo of Richard Nixon’s ‘I’m not a crook’ defense,” Wallace said. “With the stakes potentially just as high for his presidency.”
According to Nicolle Wallace, those words came from a man who felt betrayed by the House Speaker.
“In his mind, he’s got some bond with [Pelosi], whether real or imagined,” Wallace said. “Where she has good manners, he thinks she treats him with respect. She does treat him with respect. And it really seemed to unravel him psychologically for her to accuse him of a cover-up first thing this morning.”
