[See NewsBusters for more.] MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle was confused on her Wednesday show why conservatives are so focused on cancel culture when there are real problems in this country. To help her out, the Washington Post's Philip Bump explained that people concerned about cancel culture are really just old white people worried about the less-white youth.
Early on during the show, Ruhle went to commercial teasing the future segment, "And later why the right is fixated on the so-called threat of cancel culture and so fired up about children's books instead of passing a bill that a majority of their voters support.
