MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle this morning failed, at the very end of an interview with senior White House aide Sebastian Gorka, to keep her disgust with her guest under wraps, bringing up a meaningless criticism that made no sense except to be antagonistic.
Gorka wasn’t taking any nonsense from her and shot a retort right back.
Gorka: I think in the last 25 weeks, you’ve seen that leadership, from the southern border, to NATO, to Warsaw, to the economy, to the stock market. We’re crushing it and he can do that from anywhere.
Ruhle: Alright, well, the White House doesn’t ‘crush’ a stock market but I do appreciate your time —
Gorka: That’s a phrase. It’s a common phrase. It means winning.
Ruhle: Thanks for helping me with a common phrase, “crushing it.” Appreciate it.
Gorka: You’re welcome. Any time.
Actually, if her intended point was that White House policies do not affect markets, then she needs an economics class fast.
Have a look. Kind of fun.
