HuffPost's Alex Wagner Discusses Donald Trump On MSNBC (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

HuffPost's Alex Wagner spoke to MSNBC's Cenk Uygur Friday night about Donald Trump.

Wagner, discussing controversial comments made by Trump and Rush Limbaugh, commented, "Donald Trump, Rush Limbaugh, what they effectively do is change the magnetic poles here. And you know, regardless of how feasible his candidacy actually is, when Donald Trump, you know, starts engaging in this rhetoric, and Rush Limbaugh starts engaging in this rhetoric, it gives fuel to the fire."

She also explained that the GOP is "dead serious about cutting this deficit. They are dead serious about economic reform. They are dead serious about entitlement reforms. And so they are going to be making much more of a concerted effort in the following weeks and months to get the carny sideshow of social conservatism that is Donald Trump off the main stage."
