MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle erupts in laughter after guest wonders where Trump could have slept if hookers ‘ruined’ hotel bed

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle ridiculed President Donald Trump’s denials about his overnight stay in Moscow, which a former British spy claims may have involved an encounter with Russian prostitutes.

The president called “Fox & Friends” on Thursday morning and — among other things— admitted to spending the night in Moscow following the 2013 Miss Universe pageant.

“Of course, I stayed in Russia overnight,” Trump told the Fox News hosts, saying that he never told former FBI director James Comey otherwise during their private conversations.

Ruhle said the president’s claims don’t really undercut salacious allegations in the Steele dossier about Trump being compromised by his alleged activities with Russian prostitutes.

“Why is this a big deal?” she said. “Is it a big deal as it relates to prostitutes? Because if it’s about whether or not he met prostitutes, you don’t actually need a full night. You can make that happen pretty quickly.”

MSNBC contributor Matt Miller, a former Department of Justice spokesman, said Trump probably would not have slept in the hotel bed if salacious claims in the Steel dossier were true.

“Especially if they’ve ruined the bed,” Miller said. “If you’re staying there for a full night, I’m not sure where you’re going to sleep.”
