  1. It sounds like my political views align more with Wallace than Todd. That said, is NBC dumb? By all accounts, Meet the Press is successful, yet they are going to toy with it, including contemplating replacing the host? If a stock is rising fast, the last thing I am doing is taking my money out and bailing.

  2. To suggest Wallace isn’t a Trump supporter is being kind. She loathes Trump and yearns for the days when the Bushies were in charge starting wars everywhere, mass immigration, and keeping the Washington establishment in charge and well oiled.

  3. Wallace is swimming in the deep end of the pool already…Meet The Press would SINK with her…but Todd is seriously dead man walking, and NBC knows it. Did you guys catch ANY of her interviews with Biden. She doesn’t know the meaning of “a follow-up” and all she could do was giggle along as Biden flashed his pearly whites!!!
    And don’t let her resumé lead you to believe she’s anything but wayyyyyy woke.

  4. Don’t know much about Wallace and honestly haven’t watched any Meet the Press w/ Chuck Todd, but indeed he is recognizable mostly as a numbers’ guy and data geek. Can’t believe this type of Sunday morning news show (exceptionally boring) still garnered about 4MM viewers per show, which is astonishing in this day and age and Todd should not be moved based on this fact alone.

    • You are right, in that it is amazing that Meet the Press still garners viewership in the millions despite the format being outdated. Chuck Todd’s days at MSNBC will be coming to an end within the next year or so. IF Trump wins re-election, MSNBC will want a partisan (even more extreme than usual, and Wallace fits that bill as an Anti-Trumper.

  5. I attended an event and met Nicole Wallace pre Covid…Long convo. She just spews Trump hatred every 2 seconds. One lady in the group (a Dem) calmly challenged one of her Trump claims as being false and she yelled at her in rage. When the lady fact checked on her phone Wallace told her to stop sucking up to Trump… Wallace is blinded by her hatred for Trump..She would clearly prefer socialism and Biden/ Bernie’s plan to a second Trump term. Serious TDS…I know she is currently perceived as a star at MSNBC but I think with increased exposure viewers will figure out that she is another 24/7 Trump hater and tune her out. Very very low IQ also..Spend 5 min talking to her and decide.
