    An irritated Chuck Todd on Monday chided Donald Trump for highlighting women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual abuse. Talking about Sundays debate in which the businessman did a press conference with Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey, among others, the NBC journalist complained, Only in the, sort of, the mind of some sort of movie writer of a third world democracy or dictatorship would you have a candidate publicly humiliate a former occupant of that office by parading all of these other people around.

    On Hardball, Chuck Todd called it a fantasy, but . . . he reported that some Republicans think that maybe they can talk Donald Trump into quitting, and that an ideal replacement ticket would be Mike Pence and Nikki Haley. Chris Matthews was very skeptical, saying that thered never be a week when Pence could beat Hillary, because he lacks the pizazz. Todd replied that some Republicans believe that a generic Republicans could beat Clinton. Todd quoted one Republican as saying take any two people in the White Pages. Make them the ticket.

    Morning Joe did a very decent job today of covering the shooting of police officers in Dallas and the issue of police shootings of African-American. The remarks were generally even-handed. Even Al Sharpton was cautious and balanced in his comments. And so it was surprising that of all people, Chuck Todd made the most tendentious remark. Speaking of the shooting of Philando Castile in St. Paul, Minnesota, and discussing the need for better police training, Todd said: how do you train prejudice and hate out of somebodys heart? Thats a tough thing. Is there racism among police? Of course, as...

As part of that effort, Hillary called into Meet the Press Daily, where Chuck Todd took a skeptical view of the spin coming from Team Hillary, as Leah Barkoukis notes at Townhall. Todd zeroed in on one statement from the IG report in which Hillary refused to use an official State Department e-mail. Until yesterday, Hillary claimed she wanted one system for convenience,...

Clinton argued that the report made clear that personal email use was allowed under State Department rules, though she acknowledged she realized people have "concerns." Snip...

It was high-five material on conservative blogs for days, back when Cruz was still a populist hero to Trump fans rather than “Lyin’ Ted.” He delivered it last July, a month after Trump declared his candidacy, with the Trump/Cruz bromance still in full flower. Cruz was eager to impress Trump’s supporters in the belief that they’d soon stampede towards him as Trump inevitably collapsed in the polls. Fast-forward eight months and here we are: Sixty-three percent of Trump’s supporters say that if he earns more delegates than the other candidates but does not become...

"This was a difficult week in Washington," the Mesa Republican told more than 200 worshipers at the Islamic Center of the North East Valley. "We are a better country than has been on display this week." "My hope and prayer today is that isolated voices calling for division are overwhelmed by the chorus of voices in this room today calling for acceptance, tolerance and inclusion."

    Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake shocked MSNBC's Chuck Todd Thursday evening with his candid response that Republican lawmakers won't publicly admit they oppose Donald Trump as the GOP presidential nominee because they fear the front-runner would launch a third-party run. "Those who don't want a Republican in the White House want Republicans to say this because the most likely scenario if there's not a Republican in the White House will be because Donald Trump runs as a third-party candidate and if Republicans say now we will not support the ultimate nominee, that gives Donald Trump license to run as a third-party...

    There is no chance that the Leftist media will “get it” any time soon. They all believe they can be Uncle Walter Cronkite and just feed us lies. Now that we are beginning to wake to the dangers of Islam, the media is worried and upset at our “lack of knowledge.” They could have been telling us the truth about Muslims for years but chose not to; so have lost their grip on public opinion. To change this, Chuck Todd is trying his hand at being Uncle Walter. Out of pure panic, Uncle Chuck had to call an emergency campfire...
  • VANITY about an article from November 20, 2015 Time Magazine: CNN Announces Criteria for Next Republ

    Chuck Todd On The Latest Terrorism News HH: Yeah, because Chris Christie said last hour on this program I wonder if the President is going to mock me as a tough guy now for worrying about widows, because this was a black widow. That is where my observation is taking me. And Christie just hammered the President. (Excuse us, Christie does not hammer Obama more than Trump. Christie is only trying to become a mini Trump) What do you think happens now inside the White House on their reluctance to use the term Islamist terror, on the jayvee stuff coming...

    MSNBC Live with Tamron Hall had Chuck Todd on for two segments related to the terrorist attack in San Bernardino on Wednesday. When confronted with the idea that this could be terrorism, as many labeled the Colorado Springs shooting, Todd hesitantly said, “I don't know if we want to go down that road, Tamron, just yet. I think, I think let's let all this play out. But I have, I have very, I have some fears of where this conversation goes, if this turns into being an American Muslim, an American citizen, and the investigation comes out that this is...

    Mike Huckabee might be down in the polls, but he's still up to throwing a good political punch. On this evening's MTP Daily, Chuck Todd suggested, by way of advocating the admission of Syrian refugees, that the US is better than Europe at "assimilation." Retorted Huckabee, speaking of one of the Boston bombers, "he really assimilated, until he blew up the Boston Marathon with a pressure cooker." Ouch! View the video here.
  • Ben Rhodes: Obama Not Worried About Taking Syrian Refugees

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” the deputy national security adviser for strategic communication for President Barack Obama Ben Rhodes said the president is not worried about America taking Syrian refugees despite reports that at least one man linked to the Paris attacks registered as refugee in Greece. Host Chuck Todd said, “If anything, ISIS looks like they’re more ambitious than ever.” Rhodes replied, “Well clearly, Chuck, they’ll have to be an intensification of our efforts, to look at what has worked in the application of the strategy and what hasn’t. What we see works, getting equipment arms directly to...

    Speaks slowly so Chuck Todd can understand It’s not easy making a worthwhile point when you go on Meet the Press, because you have to answer questions from Chuck Todd, who never asks you about anything worthwhile. But Speaker Paul Ryan did a pretty good job regardless in his appearance yesterday. Conservatives opposed to Ryan because immigration is their number one issue and they think Ryan is a pro-amnesty sellout will be pleased to know - I think, you never know with them - that Ryan vowed there will be no comprehensive immigration reform taken up by the House as...
