Amber Athey White House Correspondent

MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle and New York Times columnist Bret Stephens had an intimate moment on Wednesday when Stephens trashed the president and advocated voting for Democrats.

“I think it is consistent on conservatives and Republicans to support the same for President Trump now that campaign finance violations are much graver, much more felonious,” Stephens said, comparing Trump’s scandals to former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment.

MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle stopped the segment to shake Stephens’ hand, asserting, “shake my hand, we’re looking for consistency and we’re talking about politics.”

Ruhle continued to hold Stephens’ hand as he urged Congress to take action against the president and even advocated for people to vote for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.

“I know,” Stephens replied. “Nonetheless, Congress has an obligation and it’s why Democrats should be put in office in November.”

“Good luck to you brother,” Ruhle gushed.
