Despite the media’s empty words insisting they are not politicizing the coronavirus, they keep doing just that. On Friday afternoon’s Deadline: White House, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace and Princeton professor Eddie Glaude were practically rooting for more Americans to die from the virus so it could be President Trump’s “Katrina.”

The professor and regular race-baiter for the network first made the disgusting comparison to Katrina:

“I was thinking in terms of politics, right. We talked about the business community finally not kind of sticking with Donald Trump. But this may be and I should mention this with a little trepidation but this may be Donald Trump’s Katrina,” Glaude said. As soon as he finished, Nicolle Wallace jumped in, eager to bash her former boss, President Bush, and President Trump as “incompetent” leaders:

“Yeah…Let’s just lean into that for a minute. Katrina was the moment when all the things that felt incompetent about the Bush presidency, the appoint of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court. The botched attempt to pass Social Security privatization, I mean I lived it, I can go through the whole list, were realized,” she boasted.

In the next shocking exchange, Wallace and Glaude got animated and seemed excited over the idea that hundreds of people could die, but it would be worth it because finally some of Trump’s base would stop supporting him:

WALLACE: We gave them a proof point that we were indeed, incompetent. And also people died. I mean this has the makings structurally of the same kind of moment.

GLAUDE: If there was any moment that would shake that 40%, the folks who would allow him to shoot someone down someone on fifth — if theres any a moment, its this one. because it’s old people its babies, its friends, its young people, its grandparents. It’s your Nana.

WALLACE: Its old people in nursing homes who can’t have their daughters and grandchildren—

GLAUDE: So, it seems to me this is an event that could take down a presidency.

Glaude ended the segment sometime later warning that thousands of Americans could die from the coronavirus and it would be Trump’s fault:

“Real quick. Deadly consequences. Over 3,000 dead in Puerto Rico and here we are now,” he said grimly.

Wallace wasn’t the only journalist eager to make this morbid comparison. According to a keyword search through DVR-recording system Snapstream, Obama’s ebola czar made it on CNN and MSNBC’s Chris Hayes did as well in his own scathing segment. At least two MSNBC panelists on Saturday did too. Monday morning, CNN’s chief business correspondent Christine Romans ripped Trump for “really downplaying” the virus, gushing “some say now looks like a Hurricane Katrina moment.”
