During a softball interview with Democratic California Senator Kamala Harris on Thursday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle urged the left-wing lawmaker to slam President Trump over his decision not to utilize the Defense Production Act as long as numerous companies are already volunteering to produce essential medical equipment needed to combat the coronavirus pandemic. The host even laughed as her guest accused the President of “abject failure.”
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to hit the country hard, President Trump is working with Congress to try to limit the economic damage that is resulting from government mandated shutdowns. This is not surprising as it is what elected leaders are supposed to do, unless you are MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle who, on Wednesday, seemed surprised that Trump had endorsed the Senate compromise reached in the early hours of the morning.
During the 9am hour of MSNBC Live, host Stephanie Ruhle brought on a favorite cable news guest as of late, Ron Klain, the former ebola czar for President Obama, former aide to President Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden, as well as now an adviser to Biden’s presidential campaign, to trash this administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic. Ruhle repeatedly compared the Obama administration’s response to the 2014 ebola outbreak, and invited Klain to boast about how he would’ve handled the coronavirus crisis better than President Trump.
On Tuesday, both NBC’s Today show and MSNBC actually attempted to blame President Trump for a couple in Arizona ingesting fish medication as a way to protect themselves against the coronavirus. Tragically, the husband died and his wife is in critical condition. While still in the hospital, she was contacted by an NBC reporter, whose top priority was finding a way to hold Trump responsible.
On Friday, MSNBC was eager to exploit the coronavirus to bash cable competitor Fox News, accusing the rival network of spreading “misinformation” about the disease and even endangering the lives of its viewers. The discussion took place on the same show that labeled the virus President Trump’s “Chernobyl” on Thursday.
Wanting a historical analogy for the response to COVID-19, the Thursday cast of MSNBC Live settled on the 1986 nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl, but instead of comparing the Soviet government's coverup to the Chinese government's coverup, the panel decided that it was President Trump that was analogous to the Soviet apparatchiks.
As Michael Bloomberg announced he was dropping out of the 2020 presidential race and endorsing Joe Biden Wednesday morning, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle gushed that “Mike can get it done” and still defeat President Trump in November by backing Biden. She also hyped how Bloomberg’s digital campaign could “supercharge” the Democratic frontrunner.
Appearing on MSNBC Tuesday morning to voice her 2020 support for Michael Bloomberg, daytime host Judge Judy Sheindlin blasted the socialist revolution being preached by Bernie Sanders as “a joke” and accused the far-left presidential candidate of trying to “fool the American public.” Anchor Stephanie Ruhle feebly attempted to defend Sanders and his supporters.
On both the Today show and her own 9:00 a.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Monday, NBC News senior business correspondent Stephanie Ruhle keep pushing the now-debunked claim that President Trump labeled the coronavirus a “hoax.” In reality, what Trump dismissed as a hoax were efforts by Democrats and liberal media to politicize the global health crisis.
Leading off a discussion on media coverage of the coronavirus, on Friday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle quickly went to work attacking Fox News. Why? Because the competing cable channel was calling out attempts in the press to blame the Trump administration for the spread of the disease.
On Friday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle talked to CNBC contributor Dan Nathan about how the booming economy may factor into the 2020 presidential race. Without any substantiation, Nathan wildly speculated that there could be another “global financial crisis” which would provide something “Dems can run on” in the fall.
While hyping reports that President Trump fired his acting Director of National Intelligence over concerns that the intelligence community was too focused on allegations of Russian interference in the upcoming election, on her Friday morning show, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle claimed that Trump should want to “have a clean win” in 2020 after the “asterisk” in the 2016 election.
