Nicolle Wallace Battles Ex-Pence Spox: Tillerson Can Disagree With Trump, He’s a ‘Grown-Ass Man’ (Mediaite)
Moments after railing against President Donald Trump‘s administration for walking on eggshells to constantly praise and never criticize the man at the top, Nicolle Wallace grilled a recently-departed member of the administration on the topic.
On Wednesday’s Deadline: White House, Marc Lotter — who, until four days ago, was Press Secretary Vice President Mike Pence — battled with Wallace over NBC’s report about Secretary of State Rex Tillersoncalling Trump a “f*cking moron.” Wallace questioned whether anyone in the administration is allowed to criticize the President.
“Do you think there’s any honorable dissent from the President?” Wallace said. “Do you think Rex Tillerson had the right as––you know, as Whoopi Goldberg would say––as a grown-ass man to disagree with how Donald Trump responded to Charlottesville?”
