MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace throws script in outburst over Trump speaking out against New York judge in ‘falsified’ docs case

During a segment on MSNBC's Deadline: White House, host Nicole Wallace displayed frustration and threw her script off camera while discussing former President Donald Trump's comments regarding a New York state justice's daughter.

Wallace, joined by former federal Judge Michael Luttig, MSNBC's John Heilemann, Lisa Rubin, and Glenn Kirschner, expressed her resentment about the former President's recent comments, stating, “So, you know, it's time to do something different. Like, we're not going to have this conversation again! I have come on the air with breaking news about requests for gag orders because of threats for judges and their kids more times than I could count today before I got ready.”

She went on to apologize to the employee who “has to write the banner at the bottom of my show,” and complained that “Donald Trump broke the rule of law.”

Wallace’s outburst stemmed from Trump’s recent rhetoric regarding New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan's 34-year-old daughter. Merchan is overseeing Trump's New York trial concerning allegations of falsifying documents related to payments for adult film star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election. His daughter, Loren has been vocal about her dislike for the former president and was revealed to have an X account with an image of Trump behind bars as her profile picture. She later changed the picture.

Recently, Justice Merchan imposed a gag order on Trump, preventing him from discussing witnesses, lawyers, court staff, or their families in relation to the case. However, the gag order did not explicitly mention Merchan or his daughter, prompting Trump to speak out on Truth Social.

“Judge Juan Merchan is totally compromised, and should be removed from this TRUMP Non-Case immediately,” the former President posted on Truth Social on Thursday.

“His Daughter, Loren, is a Rabid Trump Hater, who has admitted to having conversations with her father about me, and yet he gagged me,” Trump added.
