MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle was in no mood for President Donald Trump’s equivocating about the neo-Nazi riots at the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, which left a young woman dead. Trump infamously blamed the violence on “both sides” and praised the neo-Nazi marchers as “very fine people.”
“President Trump saying that the unite the right rally was just a bunch of historians?” said Ruhle, who looked like she was about to vomit.
“I need to remind our audience that Heather Heyer was plowed down and killed,” Ruhle said angrily. “The person who hit her has been convicted of first-degree murder.”
“He was a Nazi sympathizer who looked up to Hitler,” she went on slowly, gritting her teeth and squeezing her eyes shut in frustration. “It was not just about historians.”
