MSNBC personality Stephanie Ruhle is not interested in whether or not Michael Wolff’s latest book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” which set off a public fight between President Donald Trump and former advisor Steve Bannon, is true or not because “the spirit of the book” holds truth.
On Thursday, Ruhle told her audience, “I’ve spoken to people inside the White House in the last 24 hours who have said, ‘Even if not all of it is true, the spirit of the book is and it’s troublesome.’” She did not name any of the “people inside the White House” she spoke to.
As if expecting criticism from viewers for the liberal network’s newfound praise for Bannon’s words in the book, Ruhle said, “Those who say well, ‘Why are you raising Steve Bannon, calling him a hero?’ Absolutely no one is calling him a hero.”
Continuing, Ruhle repeated the liberal mantra that Bannon is a sexist, racist. “If he said or did or has said offensive, misogynistic, racist things, he still has. They’re still wildly offensive, but he was one of the most senior people in the White House, a close adviser to the President, and this book takes us inside.”
“I’ve spoken to people inside the White House in the last 24 hours who have said, ‘Even if not all of it is true, the spirit of the book is and it’s troublesome. It’s chaotic,’” Ruhle said.
Ruhle concluded, “Over 200 interviews conducted. A lot might not be true in the book. But, boy, even if some of it is, it’s a wow.”
