MSNBC’s Stephanie Rhule criticized the president’s comments Friday morning for clarifying the statement he made on Thursday saying that he’s been preparing for the North Korea summit his entire life.


“I’d love to know Mr. President, when was that?” Ruhle asked Friday morning.

“When you appeared in a Playboy softcore porn movie?” she continued. “Was it when you body-slammed Vince McMahon, the head of the World Wrestling Federation?”

“Or, was it when you were leaking information, when you were disguising yourself as your own PR guy, talking to tabloids about what a great lover you were,” the anchor added.

Ruhle’s comments were the result of the president’s Thursday response to what type of preparation he was taking before the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un next week: “I think I’m very well prepared. I don’t think I have to prepare very much. It’s about attitude,” Trump responded.

Then when asked about those comments Friday, he clarified, saying, “I said I’ve been preparing all my life.” (RELATED: Trump Takes Potshot At Hillary While Talking North Korea Preparations)

The meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong-Un is scheduled to take place on June 12 in Singapore.
