Stephanie Ruhle Gets Choked up Reading Michelle Obama Statement Hitting Trump for Birtherism
‘Of course, it’s underlining bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed’

EXCERPT:

RUHLE: “All right, coming up, President Trump still talking to reporters as he departs to Paris. He responded directly to Michelle Obama's critical comments about him. And in case you hadn’t heard, in her new book to be released on Tuesday, she criticized Trump for pushing the birther conspiracy against her husband, writing, 'The whole thing was crazy and mean-spirited. Of course, it’s underlining bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed. But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks. What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington. What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him.' First Lady Michelle Obama.”
