MSNBC hosts Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi on Tuesday pointed out that conservatives had failed in their efforts to punish Delta Airlines for breaking ties with the National Rifle Association (NRA).
After Delta announced that it was abandoning its relationship with the NRA, Republicans in Georgia threatened to kill part of a bill that would eliminate fuel taxes for airlines.
Ruhle noted on Tuesday that Republicans had not impacted Delta's stock price.
"That's got to be somewhat embarrassing for [Georgia Lt. Governor Casey Cagle (R)]," Ruhle observed. "You think when you've got a shot across the bow like that, you're going to rattle the company. If you rattle the company, the stock moves."
"If you take a shot across the bow, you have to actually get it across the bow," Velshi agreed.
