If you know ONE THING about MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle, it is that she came to TV news directly from Wall Street. If you know more things about her, you are obviously a weird liberal who has MSNBC on at all hours of the day and night, like a common Wonkette. Whenever there is a huge story about #MoneyStuff, MSNBC puts her on literally every show to share her knowledge, because She. Knows. Her. Shit.

Thursday morning a dumbass Trump idiot named Brad Thomas, who ShareBlue notes is part of Trump's re-election campaign (which sadly exists), and who wrote a book about giving blowies to Trump or something (we're sure it's great), went on MSNBC to talk to Ruhle and her co-host Ali Velshi about Trump's YOOOOGE economic successes. Velshi has been a business reporter pretty much since he was born, and he's married to a hedge funder. So is Stephanie Ruhle. REAL LIBERAL DUMB DUMBS who probably "never had a job" or something, we don't know, pick your favorite libtard trope.

You can imagine how well this played out, if you can imagine things that are AWESOME.

VELSHI: Donald Trump is not even close to being the largest job creator in the first six months of his presidency. There are four recent presidents who do better than him. Why do you continue to say these things? […]

THOMAS: As a shopping center developer in my previous life, this is what I did. I don't know what YOU did ...

While Thomas was putting up whatever rinky dink shopping centers (featuring the most state-of-the-art Big Lots locations, we are sure), Stephanie Ruhle was ... uh huh, yep.

... but I’ve got a long background in business and I understand the announcement this week on infrastructure, the cost-cutting measures, that are now coming in place is going to stimulate this economy and create jobs. Jobs for everybody. All races. Everybody. And that’s really what’s important. Yeah, I think that’s the most important part of this that again the mainstream media really doesn’t recognize, is this job — he was hired — I hired him, I’ve doubled-down on the president of the United States, because I believe in him. I started writing this book four years ago, nobody knew he was going to run for president, but I’ve doubled-down on this. I believe he can make America great, and we’re already seeing that now. You can ignore these catalysts, but they’re there.


Velshi jumped in to say ACTUALLY, you idiot, I just told you Trump's numbers are shit, and Ruhle noted that ACTUALLY, you idiot, there is no damn infrastructure plan, but Thomas was not deterred in his idiot defense of the unhinged president who is very bad at business:

THOMAS: Look, it’s just very complicated. And I get it, I know this is not your background so it may be hard ...

Oh shiiiiiiiiit.

RUHLE: What are you talking about, Brad?

VELSHI: It is far more OUR background than it is yours.

RUHLE: Brad, I spent 14 years in investment banking.

VELSHI: You can’t just lie on TV, Brad. You can’t just lie on TV. You actually — I don’t know if your people told you who you were coming on TV with, but you can’t lie about the economy to us.

That's right, BRAD. Stupid BRAD, being a total BRAD and acting like the fact that he put up that shopping center your mama likes to go to that has the TJ Maxx and the Stein Mart right next to each other means he is some kind of A Expert on all the TREMENDOUS things Trump, another big stupid loser, is doing for the economy.

The whole interview was like this. Velshi 'splained the idiot that literally nothing Trump has done has improved the economy, and Ruhle 'splained the idiot that corporate tax reform isn't going to happen, because instead of working with Republican leadership on that, Donald Trump is "donkey-kicking them on Twitter." Now, yr Wonkette is not a money expert, but we bet donkey-kicking Mitch McConnell is not on the business curriculum at Wharton, where Trump went to school and allegedly passed his classes.

Also? What's happening in the stock market is a trend that started in March of 2009, two months after Nobummer NoNever was inaugurated. So ...

Velshi concluded:

You should fire your press person because if they didn’t tell you that you were coming on T.V. with Velshi and Ruhle, who I think collectively—I don’t want to give away Stephanie’s age—but between the two of us we have been doing this for about 50 years. ... This is a silly conversation to have with us. You can go to other people's media and say these things, but NOT TO US.
