MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle illustrated a feat in journalism as she challenged a barrage of lies from Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway.
Stephanie Ruhle grills Kellyanne Conway
MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle held Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump's campaign manager, to account for many lies she told in real time. Conway likely did not expect the grilling she got. But one must give her her due. Even as her lies were fact checked and corrected in real time, Conway kept talking so some of her misinformation would make it on the airwaves.
Ruhle forced Conway to admit that voter fraud is not really an issue in American elections. But Ruhle went further. She pointed out that real data proves that touting voter fraud is a fraud on the American people.
When Conway attempted to attack the media, Ruhle challenged her. Ruhle pointed out that Marco Rubio (R-FL) believes the Wikileaks emails should not be indulged as it is a danger to our Democracy. Rubio indirectly challenged Trump's use of them in the campaign.
Ruhle embarrassed Conway as she admonished her for her tacit support for Trump's attacks on women. Everytime Conway attempted to obfuscate reality, Ruhle was mostly on point for correcting the record.
In one exchange Stephanie Ruhle got visibly upset. Conway implied that several billionaires were successful while disregarding Hillary Clinton's achievements as successes. It was evident it touched a nerve as women have had to work much harder and yet receive minimal recognition.
The type of grilling that Stephanie Ruhle gave to Kellyanne Conway is long overdue. Recently many hosts and journalists have been holding the Trump campaign to account. It is late in the game. The media did not serve America well. They are directly responsible for the less than optimal choices Americans are left with. One hopes that they will do better in the next election.
