MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace wants the women of the White House to rise up, resign, and walk out.
What’s the occasion this week? This time, it’s over revelations disclosed by the ex-wives of former White House staffer Rob Porter that he allegedly physically abused them. Because #complicit.
“Where are the women?” Wallace asked rhetorically on her MSNBC show. “Why don’t they walk out en masse?”
“I know they feel picked on,” Wallace rattled on. “I know they do because I’ve asked this twice, I asked it after the president tweeted at Mika, I singled out the women and named them, and I won’t do that today.”
“But why don’t you walk out?” she implored. “Why don’t they leave?”
Perhaps because they had nothing to do with Porter’s alleged behavior and he’s no longer at the White House? It might also be because they value their jobs as women in positions of power in the U.S. government, you know, the thing liberals like Wallace said would be impossible under Trump.
Oh, apologies, Wallace isn’t a liberal, she’s a self-described “anti-Trump Republican.” She just happens to share all the views we’ve come to know and love about the frothing-at-the-mouth left, like blaming future dead federal agents on President Trump.
As for women in power like Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway, they’re getting flak for sharing the gender of Porter’s accusers.

And for Hope Hicks, she’s supposedly in hot water with the White House, reportedly for sticking up for Porter after the proverbial SHTF. But there’s no indication that she’s going to be on her way out, even if romantic attachment to Porter clouded her judgment.
“Hope is absolutely fantastic,” Trump said in a statement. “She was with the campaign from the beginning, and I could not ask for anything more. Hope is smart, very talented and respected by all.”
For all the talk of misogyny in the White House, it must be stunning to resistance journalists to see women who are loyal to the president and who won’t blame him for the purported misdeeds of a staffer. It’s almost as if the left’s narrative doesn’t quite comport.
