MSNBC’s Ruhle Knocks Trump’s ‘Meaningless’ Unity Talk: Sounds Nice, But ‘That’s Not Who He Is’


President Trump spoke of unity and coming together in his State of the Union last night, and while Stephanie Ruhle said that all sounded good, it doesn’t quite mesh with who the President is.

“The President spoke about unity, and we do have the opportunity now to call him to that task,” she said.

Ruhle played video of Trump talking about coming together and unifying the country and said that all sounds good, but it’s coming from, well, the wrong messenger:

“That’s not who he is. He’s the least gracious person in that position. If he added some graciousness––you know, when he talks about [the] African-American unemployment rate, he’s right. It is at its lowest. But it’s due, in part, to President Obama. Would it not help President Trump’s messaging if he gave a hat-tip to the last administration and then said ‘But I’m doing X, Y, Z, to further it.’ Instead, he’s wildly divisive, but then just says a few words about unity. That’s meaningless.”
