MSNBC host and Never Trump politico Nicole Wallace didn’t hold back when expressing how she felt about Senator Rand Paul’s still precarious recovery from coronavirus.

Here’s her full quote: “I think everybody hopes he’s okay. I think, not wishing anyone to be sick or to be exposed is a universal sentiment, but I wonder if that’s just made more difficult.”
Wallace was responding to the report that, despite having being tested for the virus, Paul continued to use Senate facilities. Wrong on his part? Very likely. But finding it hard to summon up human decency regarding his survival? Well, Wallace is an MSNBC host, after all.
Here’s part of the transcript.
