Double wall switch miswired?

Texte:

I have a double wall switch for my front exterior light and interior front hall light. I do not know if it is two separate one way switches or an actual double switch. However, my interior hall light must be on in order for my porch light to work. No inside light = no outside light. The inside light, obviously, works without the outside light being on.
Is this a miswired switch problem or a bad switch?

…and is wrapped here with purple wire.

Generally in my house I've noticed through other fixture updates that the purple is my hot wire. I don't understand why the red would be wrapped with the purple if it's already got a purple on it.
