MSNBC daytime anchor Stephanie Ruhle brought her mother on set to deliver a lecture and some encouragement to President Trump.
Ruhle said on her show Thursday it's "take-your-parents-to-work day" and introduced her mother, Louise Ruhle, as one of the "suburban, white women" who voted for Trump, sending him to the White House.
"What's your message to him?" Ruhle asked her mother.
"I did vote for you," her mother said into the camera. "I'm disappointed in the job you're doing. I know you didn't prepare. You aren't ready for all the things that come down your way. But, please, work a little bit harder. Listen to all the women around you and do a better job. There's always tomorrow."
Ruhle then asked if her mother thought Trump should listen to her as an anchor.
Her mother waved her hand as if to suggest "somewhat."
Ruhle is frequently critical in her coverage of the Trump administration, often getting in tense exchanges with White House aides.
