It’s not just Robert De Niro who blasts the F-word when it comes to President Trump.
At least one member of the media is admitting to screaming obscenities in connection with the president while she’s taking a shower.
The frank admission came from MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle on Monday, who was discussing Sunday night’s outburst by De Niro during the Tony Awards, during which he unabashedly declared “F— Trump” on national television, receiving a standing ovation from those in the audience.
“I understand the frustration and outrage around the president,” said Ruhle. “I’m sure I shout some of those words in the shower.”
Ruhle noted of De Niro, “He dropped the F-bomb saying F-trump twice. A week after late-night host Samantha Bee used an expletive against Ivanka Trump. It’s not just crude language.”
The MSNBC host shared a clip of what HBO’s Bill Maher mentioned on his show Friday.
“This economy is going pretty well. I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point,” said Maher. “By the way, I’m hoping for it. Because I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession.”
Ruhle expressed concern that public trust in the media could be harmed when celebrities such as De Niro and Maher make such statements.
“[This allows Trump supporters to] ignore the media when the media is fact checking the president. When we get up here and we say, ‘What, he’s telling you X, Y and Z about the economy? I’m going to tell you where he’s lying to you.’ People stop believing what the media tells them when they see media superstars say things like ‘Let the economy fail.’”
“Call it a moment of clarity on MSNBC,” opined Scott Whitlock of Newsbusters. “Liberal co-host Stephanie Ruhle on Monday acknowledged that perhaps swearing ‘f*** Trump’ on national television might not be the best strategy to persuade middle America.”
Ruhle also aired a clip of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell boasting about right-leaning judges, as he said: “The last 16 months have been the single best period for conservative values since I came to Washington … And this is not hyperbole. This is not spin. This is not hyperbole. This is a fact.”
Ruhle then admitted, “When I heard Mitch McConnell say that, I may have used some of those Robert De Niro words.”
Referring to President Trump and his Christian supporters, Ruhle said: “If he delivers their policy, they’ll take the pig.”
On May 30, as WND reported, comedian Samantha Bee of the TBS show “Full Frontal” called first daughter Ivanka Trump a “feckless [C-word]” on her program, sparking national outrage.
Radio host Rush Limbaugh noted at the time: “What we are seeing, these childish outbursts, this is the insane, unhinged rantings of people who know they are losing. Losing in their attempt to dredge up anti-Trump public opinion.”
“I think it’s hurting them. I think maybe if they haven’t jumped the shark, they’ve crossed the line.”
Regarding Bee, herself, Limbaugh said: “She’s just making an abject fool of herself. I don’t care how much her audience applauds.”
