Nicolle Wallace, chief political analyst for MSNBC and NBC News, responded to trump's Twitter attack on Mika Brzezinski with passion on Thursday. While it is clear Brzezinski, who has criticized Trump from the beginning, can hold her own, there has been collective outrage in response to Trump's comments from both parties.

The president's tweets attacked the intelligence, mental health, and physical appearance of Brzezinski, all in a few sentences.

Wallace fires back

Wallace stunned audiences with her directness in addressing not only Trump himself, but also all of the women "receiving paychecks from the U.S.

taxpayers." This is not the first time Wallace has spoken out against those associated with Trump. MSNBC may be a left-leaning network, but Wallace, up until just this year, considered herself a proud Republican. She worked with President George W. Bush as communications chief. Now, however, she is Independent.

Wallace went so far as to name some of the women she was addressing, including Kellyanne Conway and Betsy DeVos.

"You should all go on the record and condemn your boss's comments and you should work behind the scenes to educate him about just how offensive they are," said Wallace on air.

President Trump's sexist remarks have gotten him in trouble in the past, but the women working closest to him have never gone on record, as Wallace is suggesting, to condemn them.

Instead, they either defend him or ignore the issue entirely.

Ivanka Trump has shut down interviews when the question of her father's sexism is brought up, and just yesterday, in response to the backlash from the president's now infamous "bloody facelift" tweet, Sarah Huckabee defended Trump. She claimed that Americans "knew what they were getting into" with Trump and that the tweet was him fighting fire with fire.

No one standing up to the president

It is because of no one correcting his wrongs that Wallace believes the Republican party will forever be associated with misogyny, as she said yesterday on MSNBC. Unless of course, "leaders stand up and demand a retraction." This has yet to happen with any of President Trump's comments, however controversial they may be, and it isn't likely to happen now.

In fact, despite the heated backlash surrounding the "Morning Joe" comments, Trump continued to tweet about it today. He is not apologizing, but further accusing the show of being "fake news."
