On The 11th Hour, which is a low-rated show on MSNBC, host Stephanie Ruhle discussed former President Donald Trump's recent dinner with rapper Kanye West and white supremacist Nick Fuentes. Despite the condemnation from Republicans across the political spectrum, she decided to make a big deal out of it by labeling the entire party as anti-Semitic and racist.
During an interview, Ruhle showed a clip of former President George HW Bush condemning David Duke, a former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard and candidate for governor of Louisiana. She then referenced a statement by Bill Cassidy, a Republican from Louisiana.
She stated that Trump's response to the dinner was that the Republican Party is not who it used to be. She then claimed that they merely listened to George Bush and that the party is who it is now.
Turningcoat Stuart Stevens, who is a member of the Lincoln Project, said that listening to the clip from Bush is like being transported to a lost civilization. He also noted that during the campaign for governor of Louisiana, they had hired Dave Treen, a former Republican governor, to run against Duke.
Stevens then stated that the Republican Party is a party that doesn't believe in anything. He then claimed that they allowed people to get elected because they promised to help them get power.
Stevens then claimed that the Republican Party is now who it wants to be. After agreeing with his claims, Ruhle stated that it's who the party is.Even though she referred to Trump's dinner with Kanye West and Nick Fuentes, she did not offer proof that the Republican Party is filled with anti-Semitic and racist individuals.
Even though she failed to provide evidence to support her claim that the Republican Party is full of racist and anti-Semitic individuals, she remained defiant. When she was called out on
Twitter, she refused to back down from her statements.
Dunce @SRuhle: "He [Sen. Cassidy] was responding to the Trump dinner saying this is not who the Republican Party is. But here's the thing. We just listened to George Bush. It might not be who the Republican Party was. But it's absolutely who they are today." pic.twitter.com/ZczYK3GIKi
