Ruhle Demands You Stop Calling The FBI Mar-a-Lago Raid a Raid!

Breaking News

On MSNBC’s The 11th Hour, host Stephanie Ruhle spent the opening segment of her show on Tuesday evening with her assembled panel to discuss the fallout from the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida. While the panel discussion itself could constitute a NewsBusters blog in and of itself, what Ruhle said at the end of the segment outshined everything else in its stupidity. 

Wrapping up the segment and about to head to a commercial break, Ruhle sanctimoniously claimed the FBI raid on Trump’s Florida home wasn’t actually a raid. “We keep hearing a lot of people call what the FBI did at Mar-a-Lago a raid. But for fact’s sake here’s the deal, law enforcement doesn’t even use the term raid,” Ruhle wailed. 

“The Justice Department applied for and got a court-authorized search warrant that gave them lawful authority to into Trump’s home. That was consistent with the Fourth Amendment probable cause requirement and allowed agents to seize items as permitted by the judge, and as outlined in the warrant,” Ruhle huffed. 

Continuing her temper tantrum, Ruhle proclaimed that “words matter” and “calling a court-authorized search a raid suggests some sort of degree of aggression and lawlessness that is simply inconsistent with the facts & the law, and those are the facts.”

She ended her smug and factually inaccurate lecture by claiming she wants her “nobody was banging down any doors. Nobody was answering a door in their underwear, shaken from bed. None of that happened. It was law and order. And that’s what’s happened.” 

Arguing that the FBI didn’t raid Trump’s home is semantics at best. A simple google search of the word “raid” will reveal that the legal definition of a raid is “a surprise visit by police to arrest suspected people or seize illicit goods.” While Trump obviously wasn’t arrested, the FBI did “seize illicit goods.” 

Every time Ruhle goes off script she proves how dumb she really is. She should stick to simply reading the teleprompter. 

Ruhle freaking out over people calling a raid a raid was made possible by AT&T & Sleep Number. Their information is linked so you can let them know about the propaganda they fund.

STEPHANIE RUHLE: And a quick, but I want to say important note for our audience, we keep hearing a lot of people call what the FBI did at Mar-a-Lago a raid. But for fact’s sake here’s the deal, law enforcement doesn’t even use the term raid. So what actually happened? The Justice Department applied for and got a court-authorized search warrant that gave them lawful authority to into Trump’s home. 

That was consistent with the Fourth Amendment probable cause requirement, and allowed agents to seize items as permitted by the judge, and as outlined in the warrant. Words matter. And calling a court-authorized search a raid suggests some sort of degree of aggression and lawlessness that is simply inconsistent with the facts & the law, and those are the facts. Chuck, do I have that right? 

CHUCK ROSENBERG: You got that right. 

RUHLE: I want our audience to understand. Nobody was banging down any doors. Nobody was answering a door in their underwear, shaken from bed. None of that happened. It was law and order. And that’s what’s happened.
