MSNBC host Nicole Wallace threw her script in the air during a live broadcast Friday while she railed against Donald Trump for calling out a judge’s daughter.

Wallace said it was “time to do something different” when she went off script to discuss a scathing social media post from the former president targeting the Democratic-connected daughter of the judge overseeing a hush money case against Trump.

“Like, we’re not going to have this conversation again!” Wallace said. “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.

“Donald Trump brazenly and repeatedly attacks not just judges. Judges don’t have Secret Service protecting them,” she continued. “What are we going to do differently, because Donald Trump sure as hell isn’t changing.”

One of her guests, former federal Judge Michael Luttig, said Trump’s goal was to “delegitimize” courts so if a negative ruling came his way, his fans would dismiss it. 

“We all have to understand that from the first time that the former president began his attacks — vicious attacks — on the federal courts and the state courts and their judges, his objective was to delegitimize those courts so that when and if they ruled against him in the various matters that he’s been charged with, then at least his followers, if not a good part of the nation, would dismiss those rulings against him as having been politically inspired and motivated,” he said.

A judge was asked by Manhattan prosecutors to clarify a gag order that was placed on the former president earlier this week following his posts about New York Supreme Court Judge Juan Mechan’s daughter, political consultant Loren.

Trump wrote Thursday: “Judge Juan Merchan is totally compromised, and should be removed from this TRUMP Non-Case immediately. His Daughter, Loren, is a Rabid Trump Hater, who has admitted to having conversations with her father about me, and yet he gagged me.”

Merchan imposed the gag order on the presidential candidate in his hush-money case due to the fact that Trump had “prior extrajudicial statements” and saying that he posed a “a sufficient risk to the administration of justice.”

The judge ordered Trump or others to make direct or public statements about witnesses, such as his former fixer Michael Cohen and the porn star at the center of the case, Stormy Daniels. Trump is accused of doctoring financial records related to hush money payments to Daniels and Karen McDougal.

However, Trump suggested Merchan’s daughter’s interests as a Democratic political consultant has worked against him, aiding President Joe Biden and other Democrats. 

He accused Loren of having an “obvious goal” to see him jailed. 

He has also accused Merchan of “hating’ him. 

Trump has pleaded not guilty to 35 felony counts of falsifying business records in the case and has denied having an affair with Daniels.
