Bush and you come to it as a human and a friend and a dad. And I want to hear how that drove you what you did today.”

Towards the tip of an almost nine-minute section, the MSNBC host provided an endorsement of his character.

“As someone who’s been in the room when you delivered difficult truths to people in power, I can attest to your ability the lay it out straight no matter the consequences,” Wallace advised her former Bush colleague earlier than congratulating him on his marketing campaign launch.

Wallace then invited Dowd to partake in two separate panel discussions, one on the Texas abortion ban and the opposite on the Democrat spending invoice drama on Capitol Hill, as if he had been MSNBC’s run-of-the-mill political analyst. 

Dowd actually benefited from such publicity although, showing for almost half of the primary hour of “Deadline: White House.”
