Oops! NBC ‘journalist’ inadvertently exposes he’s a partisan hack, quickly tries to walk it back

An NBC journalist told the truth without meaning to and then quickly tried to cover his tracks during a discussion on immigration,

NBC reporter John Heilemann exposed his partisan colors on Wednesday while speaking to MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace about immigration, admitting he is a Democrat but then trying to walk back his remark.

“It is our job in the press, and it’s also the job of Democrats, to not let the president have it both ways on this issue,” Heilemann said while discussing President Trump’s enforcement of  a policy which separates families who entered the United States illegally.

“You can’t inflict this kind of policy on Americans, and not pay a political price,” the national-affairs analyst for NBC News and MSNBC said.

“We have a great chance to inflict one on him and his party in November,” Heilemann continued, but quickly backtracked.

“We, I mean the Democratic Party. I’m not part of the Democratic Party, but people who object to this policy, which I think is a lot of people,” he said.

Heilemann’s truth-bomb earned him some swift reaction on social media.
