Nicolle Wallace's former party is the same bunch of self-serving hypocrites it always has been

Nicolle Wallace's former party is the same bunch of self-serving hypocrites it always has been
Nicolle Wallace is my favorite ex-Republican, more than even Joe Scarborough and Michael Steele. She’s obviously a lot easier on the eyes than Scarborough.
