Nicole Wallace apologizes after wondering why the press doesn’t want to choke Sarah Huckabee Sanders

How do you resist the temptation to run up and ring [Sarah Huckabee Sander’s] neck?” asked Nicole Wallace while talking about the mean joke on John McCain told by White House staffer Kelly Sadler:

Wallace later apologized for her “poorly chosen words” which she spoke in a segment where she called for someone else’s “poorly chosen words” to be fired:

When I asked about whether the tension in the briefing room ever makes reporters want to wring the neck of the spokesman, I used poorly chosen words, & for that I’m sorry. I was trying to imagine the exasperation of getting spin & not answers re: John Mccain being “about to die”

Wallace’s panel was mad at Sanders for refusing to answer a question on Sadler. From the New York Times:

“I’m not going to validate a leak one way or the other out of an internal staff meeting,” Ms. Sanders said. Asked why she would not simply apologize to Mr. McCain, she said, “I’m not going to get into a back and forth because, you know, people want to create issues of leaked staff meetings.”

Later on in the segment, the panel compared Sanders to Saddam Hussein propagandist “Baghdad Bob” and John Heilemann said he’d rather commit suicide than sit through Sanders’ briefings:

“the difference between Sarah Sanders & Baghdad Bob, is that if Baghdad Bob didn’t say what Saddam Hussein wanted him to say, Baghdad Bob would have been shot. Sanders is lying of her own volition” – @SteveSchmidtSES w/ @NicolleDWallace pic.twitter.com/LAwah7jcxj
