Stephanie Ruhle Chokes Up When Recounting Having to Hide Trump’s Comments From Her Kids

President Donald Trump and his comments about Haiti have really struck a chord, right? Just about every pundit out there has issued their own monologue on the controversy, which found Trump allegedly referring to El Salvador, Haiti and unidentified African nations  as “shithole countries.”

Now, MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle has chimed in, delivering her own emotional remarks after conducting an interview with Ambassador Wendy Sherman.

Ruhle described a scenario in which she was forced to explain Trump’s comments to her children and became visibly choked up.

“It’s not about politics. It’s about decency,” she said. “I don’t want this to be in the history books that my children are going to grow up with.”

“In front of my kids, I couldn’t tell them what the worst part of my day was and it was the President of the United States who did it and that isn’t politics. That’s just sad.”

Co-host Ali Velshi added “We can only hope that this will be an asterisk in a very noble American history when it comes to immigrants and taking people in from tough places.”

“Look. There are all sorts of places. That’s why people come to America, but we respect that,” he continued. “This has been a country of people coming here and making it better than it is today.”
