“MSNBC Live” anchor Stephanie Ruhle said Friday on her show that President Donald Trump’s “ride-or-die base” is “a bunch of people wearing Nazi T-shirts, homemade fur pelts and horns.”
PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor said, “I was talking to a source yesterday who said the president has the voters even if the Republican leadership has the establishment. Of course, then you see the steady stream of people who work for President Trump or people who refuse to work for President Trump saying that he is no longer fit to be associated with the Republican Party. But there’s also, I think, already eyes rolling at people like Mick Mulvaney, the former White House chief of staff who said President Trump isn’t the same person he was eight months ago. We know President Trump is the same person.”
“He has the voters? We saw who the president’s ride-or-die base is, Peter,” Ruhle said.
