Nets Hail Obama’s Commencement Cudgel, Look Forward to More Attacks

MSNBC’s Ruhle: Unmasking Scandal ‘Completely Made Up,’ ‘Nonsense’

On her Friday morning show, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle kept up her network’s insistence that there was “nothing” to see regarding the controversy swirling around top Obama administration officials – including Joe Biden – urging the unmasking of Michael Flynn. Following days of her fellow liberal hosts pushing the same claim, Ruhle assured viewers the scandal was “completely made up” and a “nonsense story.”“This morning, nearly 86,000 Americans have died from coronavirus....But the President and his allies are laser focused on a different story, one they completely made up,” Ruhle declared during the 9:00 a.m. ET hour.
