MSNBC host Nicole Wallace raised eyebrows this week when she begged House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) to “fill” her “up with wisdom” during a fawning interview on Monday.
“Joining us now, Democrat Majority Whip, Congressman Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, Claire McCaskill still here, um, I’m gonna be really brief because I just need you to fill me up with wisdom here,” Wallace declared, adding, “but the Republicans, I spent time in that party, this is their whole game, this is a maniacal, urgent, front burner, back burner issue, and they won’t stop…”
Wallace went on to break her promise to be brief and drone on about her complaints about the Republican party for some time, but social media users were quick to pick up on her enthusiastic desire to be “filled up” with “wisdom” by Clyburn.

In February, Wallace fantasized about Republican House Minority leader Mitch McConnell killing election integrity leaders with a “drone strike”:
“That is a bulletin released to all law enforcement earlier this week, that there is, until the end of April, a persistent threat of domestic extremism, uh, domestic terrorism, carried out and the ideology and around this belief that the election, um, was fraudulent, that the Covid restrictions are unnecessary, all of those ideologies pushed by Donald Trump, ” Wallace said.
Wallace continued, “But my question for you is around incitement. Um, we had a policy, and it was very controversial, it was carried out under the Bush years and under the Obama years, of attacking terrorism at its root. Of going after and killing, and in the case of Anwar al-Awlaki an American, a Yemeni-American, with a drone strike for the crime of inciting violence, inciting terrorism.”
“Mitch McConnell was in the Senate then, he was in the Senate after 9-11 too, how does Mitch McConnell, who understands that the way you root out terrorism is to take on – in the case of Islamic terrorism, kill – those who incite it, how does he does not vote to convict someone that he said, on the floor of the Senate, incited an insurrection,” Wallace concluded.
