Following days of her fellow liberal hosts down playing the scandal in between the scare-mongering and the Orangeman bad choruses, Ruhle assured viewers the scandal was “completely made up” and a “nonsense story.”
“This morning, nearly 86,000 Americans have died from coronavirus....But the President and his allies are laser focused on a different story, one they completely made up,” Ruhle declared during the 9:00 a.m. ET hour. She bitterly added: “Something that they now are calling ‘Obamagate.’ It means nothing........The President has called it the greatest political crime in our country’s history, but it’s not.”
Thursday afternoon, Deadline: White House host Nicolle Wallace used nearly identical language, ranting that the scandal was a “fantasy,” like “the political version of the Tooth Fairy” or Santa Claus.

No doubt, The High Princess of Conspiracy Theories, Ricky Maddow, is surely feeling all invigorated about now....
