MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle went there today during a panel discussion on the Roy Moore scandal.
With both Republican strategist Noelle Nikpour and former Democratic Senator Bob Torricelli agreeing that Moore shouldn’t be elected but disagreeing on whether or not the ex-Alabama judge should remain on the ballot, Ruhle jumped in to give her opinion. And she didn’t hold back.
“You’ve got lifetime Republicans who are saying ‘I’m a Republican, these are my principles,'” the MSNBC host said. “How has the GOP failed those people in Alabama for all these years that they never did their homework on this guy?”
Ruhle then referenced Moore’s infamous appearance at a campaign event when he pulled out a small pistol while boasting about his 2nd Amendment rights. She took that as an opportunity to slam the Republican Senate candidate over the allegations of teen sex abuse.
“We thought it was that little pistol he was carrying around on stage that was offensive,” Ruhle exclaimed. “Wrong pistol!”
“Oh my God — that was awesome!” Nikpour responded, while Torricelli laughed.
Yesterday brought new revelations about Moore. Not only did a new accuser come forward who stated that the former judge attempted to rape her when she was 16, it was reported that Moore was banned from an Alabama mall because he was badgering teen girls.
