Stephanie’s Rules

Meet MSNBC's newest star

• October 6, 2017 2:31 pm


MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle has no reservations sharing her personal commentary with her viewers.

Ruhle anchors the 9 a.m. hour and co-hosts the 11 a.m. hour with fellow MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi. The two are rising stars for the network.

In the Trump presidency, the rules for reporters have changed. Reporters have felt an urgency to share their hot takes and quips in the name of journalism. Ruhle appears to share that sentiment.

Ruhle will often make snide quips, usually directed at the Trump administration or Republicans. During the debate about the repeal of Obamacare, for example, Ruhle commented how she had a pre-existing condition because she is a woman. She declared there was no Obamacare and Trump was responsible for the welfare of all Americans. When Senate Republicans failed to repeal Obamacare, Ruhle appeared to revel in their failure. She felt it was what Trump and GOP senators deserved for trying to bully Sens. Susan Collins (R., Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R., Alaska) and John McCain (R., Ariz.) into voting yes for repeal legislation.

The Trump administration and GOP lawmakers aren't the only targets of Ruhle's mocking.

Earlier this week, she mocked gun owners who use silencers to help protect their ears. She stood up for "girly-men." She detests the term "grow a pair."

Ruhle is not afraid to share her witty comebacks or her personal views on the news. To quote Stephanie Ruhle, bring it on.
