MSNBC’s Alex Wagner declines to say if she has been spanked

MSNBC host Alex Wagner declined to comment on whether she’s been spanked during a panel discussion on Monday’s premiere episode of “Ronan Farrow Daily.”

On the subject of parental corporal punishment, former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele admitted that he “had a few spankings” growing up before the discussion turned to Wagner.

“I feel like they, we do not want the Youtube clip of like ‘Were you spanked Alex Wagner?,’” Wagner replied, laughing and dodging the question. She then noted, “Uh, but, there was a spare the rod, spoil the child, uh, thesis at my house.”

Wagner is engaged to White House chef Sam Kass, who owns wooden spoons.
