Ruhle’s claim about Fox News previously holding its Christmas party at Trump’s hotel turned out to be false, Mediaite reported.
We reached out to Fox News to clarify this statement and were informed that Fox hasn’t had its party yet. That party is not scheduled to be held at Trump’s Washington hotel, or any other Trump property. Instead, it will be held at the Liaison Capitol Hill in D.C.
Ruhle issued an apology later in the day during the 2 p.m. broadcast of MSNBC Live explaining that her comment was wrong and she made a mistake, Mediaite reported.
“This is some serious business that I need to share. I need to apologize to the audience,” Ruhle said. “Earlier today in a segment I stated that the Fox network held their holiday party at Trump’s D.C. hotel. I was wrong. We’ve since learned that neither Fox network nor an affiliate held any party at Trump’s Washington hotel.”
“I stand corrected. I apologize for the error. I am truly, truly sorry. The mistake entirely my fault,” Ruhle continued. “And of course, I wish all my friends over at Fox a very happy holiday no matter where you have your party.”
