Stephanie Ruhle used Laura Ingraham to make the case that Al Franken may be the Democrats sacrificial lamb. I think they make a compelling case. Her reaction to using Right Wing Laura Ingraham to make her case was hilarious.
Al Franken, the sacrificial lamb
Stephanie Ruhle and her guests including a virtual one, Laura Ingraham may have a point about the speed with which Democrats want Al Franken out.
Ruhle was comical in that she used Laura Ingraham to make her point.
"I cannot believe it," Ruhle said. "Lightning is going to strike me. I am saying this. I want to share what Laura Ingraham had to say. Watch this. I really can't even believe I am playing this."
"They've come down with a sudden case of feverish morality," Ingraham said. "But what it really is, is nothing more than a political calculation by the Dems. It sets the precedent for the Democrats to try to drive Roy Moore from office should he win the Alabama Senate race. And two, this is the next step in the quest to impeach President Trump."
Stephanie returned to the screen still in shock that she used Ingraham to make her point.
"I feel like lightning is going to strike me," Ruhle said playing devil's, advocate. "Does Laura Ingraham have a point here. Democrats are going to, Al Franken could be the sacrificial lamb and say look at the moral high ground we found. Doesn't it take one simple moment for Republicans to turn around and say, 'A reminder? You stood behind Bill Clinton for 40 years."
Mike Pesca came in with the punch line to that.
"They're trying to grab the moral high ground but I think they did it," Pesca said. I mean 20 years ago is 20 years ago. There is nothing you can do about Bill Clinton now. But you have Farenthold there, a Republican who's in the House of Representatives. You have the president. What are you Republicans doing about it?"
