NBC to Trump: We didn't need you to verify our story
MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle said Thursday that she stands by the NBC News report that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called President Trump a "moron" and almost resigned. Addressing Trump directly — who tweeted earlier that the story is "Fake News" and sought "No verification from me" — Ruhle hit back on her show:
Sir, we didn't need to verify that he called you a moron, he did it behind your back.
