'What Is She Talking About?': 'Outnumbered' on MSNBC Host Calling Trump-Kanye Meeting 'Assault' on WH
The "Outnumbered" panel on Friday sounded off on the media's reaction to President Trump's meeting with Kanye West.
Trump and the rapper met at the White House on Thursday to discuss a wide range of topics, including racism, gun control and the violence in Chicago. The duo preempted the lunch meeting with a highly entertaining press conference.
Many pundits slammed the Trump-West summit, with CNN anchor Don Lemon calling it an "embarrassment," New York Times columnist Michael Eric Dyson dubbing it "white supremacy by ventriloquism" and MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle saying it was "an assault on our White House."
"An assault on our White House? What is she talking about?" Melissa Francis said.
Trish Regan said many members of the mainstream media harbor a "holier than thou" attitude, and it's been apparent in their coverage of West and his support of Trump.
"Right now, all the left has is identity politics. You know why? The economy's doing great," Regan said, pointing to rising wages and historically low unemployment numbers. "So what do you guys got? You've got identity politics, which is why you play the gender card and you're playing the race card."
She said the left won't tolerate a prominent member of the African-American community declaring their support for Trump and acknowledging that the administration's policies are working.
"That's mistaken of them and certainly of those hosts that somehow think they are much better than the rest of the world, and clearly Kanye."
