MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle ridiculed President Donald Trump’s denials about his overnight stay in Moscow, which a former British spy claims may have involved an encounter with Russian prostitutes.
The president called “Fox & Friends” on Thursday morning and — among other things — admitted to spending the night in Moscow following the 2013 Miss Universe pageant.
“Of course, I stayed in Russia overnight,” Trump told the Fox News hosts, saying that he never told former FBI director James Comey otherwise during their private conversations.
Ruhle said the president’s claims don’t really undercut salacious allegations in the Steele dossier about Trump being compromised by his alleged activities with Russian prostitutes.
“Why is this a big deal?” she said. “Is it a big deal as it relates to prostitutes? Because if it’s about whether or not he met prostitutes, you don’t actually need a full night. You can make that happen pretty quickly.”
MSNBC contributor Matt Miller, a former Department of Justice spokesman, said Trump probably would not have slept in the hotel bed if salacious claims in the Steel dossier were true.
“Especially if they’ve ruined the bed,” Miller said. “If you’re staying there for a full night, I’m not sure where you’re going to sleep.”
‘Go back to Harlem!’: Florida woman has n-word laced meltdown after bumping black woman’s shopping cart
On Saturday, the Atlanta Black Star reported an incident in Florida, in which a white woman screamed racial slurs at a black woman at a Publix supermarket in Miami after their shopping carts jostled each other.
After the woman allegedly banged into Nicki Johnson's cart, she refused to apologize, saying, "I didn't hit you with my cart, and f**k you, you f**king n****r."
Johnson whipped out her cell phone camera, and began recording the incident, saying "You, why don't you call me a n****r again?"
"You thinking I'm sorry?" snapped the woman. "Let me tell you something, I don't have to call you anything. Get away from me, I will call security and there are surveillance videos. Get away from me!"
‘I’m a nurse, what are you?’: Tennessee lawmaker humiliates anti-choice activists in brutal public grilling
Anti-choice activists in Tennessee were unprepared for the grilling they got from a Democratic Party lawmaker when making the case for a bill that would outlaw abortion before many women knew they were pregnant.
One of the speakers in favor of the fetal heartbeat bill was Baptist Pastor Randy Davis, who was questioned by state Sen. Katrina Robinson (D-Memphis).
"How many women executive pastors do you have in your convention?" Robinson asked Davis. "Or senior pastors."
"None," Davis replied.
"So is it the same ideology that restricts access to women being able to lead a congregation that leads you all to support women not being able to make a medical decision about their body?" Robinson asked.
Trump is doing everything he did in 2016 to get elected — and it’s failing this time: columnist
On Saturday, Washington Post columnist Dan Balz wrote that President Donald Trump is relying on the same old bag of tricks that let him lurch blindly to a surprise victory in 2016 — but that that playbook is unlikely to get him elected again, let alone deliver sound domestic or foreign policy.
"After a week in which the threat of recession rocked global financial markets, his trade war with China showed no signs of progress and the government of Israel got into a nasty dispute with two members of Congress, President Trump went to bed Thursday night with other weighty issues on his mind. 'Great news,' he tweeted. 'Tonight we broke the all-time attendance record previously held by Elton John at #SNHUArena [Southern New Hampshire University] in Manchester!'" wrote Balz. "This is the frivolous mind-set of the president of the United States. Trump’s flurry of statements over the past few days have brought into focus once again something fundamental about him: He has little understanding of what it means to govern. He would rather tweet from the bleachers."
