WATCH: MSNBC Host Fawns Over Beto, Asks How Press Can Help Him

During a recent interview, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace, an outspoken critic of President Trump, appeared to fawn over 2020 Democrat presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke, asking him to “play media critic.”

While asking O’Rourke to detail how the press can better cover his campaign efforts, Wallace said “Don’t hold back.”

O’Rourke went on to criticize the press for superficial questions, but largely remained indifferent, noting, “It is what it is.”

Later, Wallace told O’Rourke to pressure the MSNBC reporter embedded within his campaign, “tell him what’s on your mind, if you don’t like the coverage you can change it.”
