MSNBC Host Takes Cheap Shot at Texas Governor [Video]

MSNBC has to be really proud of Stephanie Ruhle’s performance in front of the Governors of Texas’ Hurricane Harvey press briefing. In this video, she went right to the gutter and scooped up a page from the Rhom Emanuel playbook: “Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste.” Ruble had the audacity to frame a question about the safety of illegal immigrants during the storm evacuations.

GREG ABBOTT: It’s my understanding from what I saw from the Border Patrol instructions yesterday that will not be an issue. What everyone is focused on right now is ensuring that we do all we can to protect life. We all have a high regard for life. We want…….
