Ronna Gets the Boot – Twice?!

( – After exiting the Republican National Committee (RNC) due to her fall from grace with former President Donald Trump, Ronna McDaniel got booted again but this time it was unwarranted.

According to several sources, McDaniel’s tenure as a paid NBC commentator ended suddenly because of nonstop pushback from liberal figures within NBC and MSNBC that challenged the decision to hire her.

NBC’s Cesar Conde told the team through email that he regretted the decision he made. “While this was a collective recommendation… I approved it and take full responsibility for it,” he said.

He then emphasized the vital nature of unity within the organization, particularly within the newsroom, and claimed that McDaniel’s inclusion had compromised these objectives.

McDaniel, who found out about her firing through media reports, is reportedly considering her “legal options.”

The announcement that NBC had hired McDaniel came shortly after she left the RNC, as reported by The New York Times. Despite initial reports suggesting she was involved with MSNBC, MSNBC president Rashida Jones made clear that McDaniel would not appear on the network.

An interview with McDaniel was broadcast on NBC’s Meet the Press, where she distanced herself from the notion of releasing those who have been put in jail for their actions on January 6, stating, “I do not think people who committed violent acts on Jan. 6 should be free.”

Her comments reflected a newfound freedom to express her personal views by departing from her previous alignment with Trump’s views.

NBC News political commentator Chuck Todd said on Meet the Press that he was disappointed due to the network’s unfair decision implicating host Kristen Welker in McDaniel’s controversy.

Further criticism came from Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, Joy Reid and Rachel Maddow, who challenged the decision to give McDaniel airtime and criticized her for not challenging Trump about the 2020 election.

Brzezinski then argued he approved including conservative Republican voices in NBC’s election coverage with a caution, “But it should be conservative Republicans, not a person who used her position of power to be an anti-democracy election-denier.”

Additionally, Democratic figures like Jen Psaki and Symone Sanders, both currently at the network, and former McDaniel adversary and Democratic National Committee chair Jamie Harrison also expressed their discontent with NBC’s decision to hire McDaniel.
