MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace says she has yet to see Democrats get “mean” with the Trump administration.

Former President George W. Bush’s communications director told her “Deadline: White House” audience Thursday that contemporary Democrats have pulled punches prior to the retirement announcement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

“We’ve now heard almost word-for-word the same analysis from former Republican Steve Schmidt, from former Democratic Congresswoman Donna Edwards, from our own Rachel Maddow that it is time for you guys to get mean and fight,” Mrs. Wallace asked California Rep. Eric Swalwell. “Are you ready?”

Her guest answered in the affirmative.

“Yes, Nicolle,” the Democrat replied, the Washington Free Beacon reported. “And we’ve seen this week that we cannot count on the Court to save us from the wrecking ball that is Donald Trump. And as far as what I can do as a congressman, electing a Democratic majority that can push that big red button to stop the wrecking ball, that’s what we have to do.”

Mrs. Wallace’s comments come just days after California Rep. Maxine Waters told voters in Los Angeles to confront the administration’s officials in public places.

“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” Ms. Waters said. “And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
