Alicia Menendez has been filling in for Wallace.

On the show on Friday, Wallace told Menendez that she also will be launching a new series on her show called “American Autocracy.” She said that “it is something the whole country should be grappling with, because that is certainly the head of the Republican party is running on this time.”

Wallace has anchored Deadline: White House since 2017. The show expanded into to two hours in 2020, and has been among the network’s top-rated programs.

Before becoming an on-air political analyst, Wallace was in the George W. Bush administration and worked on John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign. She is a former co-host of The View.
