The hosts of MSNBC’s Velshi & Ruhle expertly debunked multiple claims that President Donald Trump had spoken as truth during a Thursday evening campaign rally in Pennsylvania.
“President Trump served up some flat-out lies at his own campaign rally last night in Pennsylvania,” Stephanie Ruhle reported.
Ruhle, and her partner Ali Velshi, proceeded to fact check Trump’s claims on Russia, job growth, the Republican tax cuts, the press and the economy.
“Please, Mr. President, relax, the press is not the enemy of the people,” Ruhle noted.
“We here at least on Velshi & Ruhle are giving people the facts — not alternative facts, not facts as you see them, not facts as you remember them — we give them the facts,” she continued. “And facts matter.”
Ruhle noted, “we sit here scratching our heads why President Trump gets up at a podium in a roomful of people who love and adore him, and he lies, straight to their faces.”
“Why?” she wondered.

Economist mocks GOP for trying to pin racism on Democrats — after telling a harrowing story about anti-black economic envy
Economist Julianne Malveaux explained to the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that there was a time in the United States where black Americans were actually closing the wealth gap with white Americans -- until white Americans rioted and burned their property.
During her testimony at a hearing on reparations, Malveaux recounted the horrific story of the destruction of "Black Wall Street," which was a location in Tulsa, Oklahoma that was known for its high concentration of black-owned businesses and black wealth.
The area's prosperity came to an end in 1921 when white Tulsa residents used baseless accusation of a black man sexually assaulting a white woman as a justification to chase out all black residents and set fire to their neighborhoods. Hundreds of black residents were killed in the riots and the majority fled the city.
MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle unloads on Democrats for letting Hope Hicks testify behind closed doors
MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle questioned the purpose of Wednesday’s hearing with former White House director of communications Hope Hicks.
Hope Hicks testified Wednesday during a closed-door hearing before the House Judiciary Committee -- where she reportedly refused to answer many questions.
“Let’s be honest, why did Democrats think this was a huge break? Why did they think that Hope Hicks was going to sing like a bird?” Ruhle asked MSNBC national security analyst Ken Dilanian.
