  • MSNBC's Todd: Trump 'responsible' for 'tone' of Samantha Bee's attack on Ivanka

    NBC’S Chuck Todd says President Trump is culpable for the “tone” attached to a recent attack on the first daughter by comedian Samantha Bee. The “Meet the Press” host told colleagues Thursday night that Ivanka Trump can partially thank her father for a personal attack in which she was called a “feckless c—t.” The analysis came during a broadcast of MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily” after Ms. Bee of the TBS’ “Full Frontal” apologized for her actions. “There’s no defending Samantha Bee and yet it’s hard to ever empathize with President Trump when they’re asking, you know, for empathy since...

    Over Memorial Day weekend, NBC's Chuck Todd opened his show "Meet the Press" by angrily lecturing his viewers about a so-called Trump "tactical playbook" on how to spin the Robert Mueller probe and the FBI informant in his presidential campaign. Here's Todd's list of Trump tactics, with our commentary: 1. "Perhaps fearing that Mueller is closing in, the president is applying a well-worn tactical playbook. Number one, distract with an invented crisis that attacks the investigators without evidence to plant a seed of doubt." Let's pick at two phrases here. Many of Trump's supporters and more than a few independents...
  • Bernie Sanders: NRA to blame for lack of action on gun control

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in an interview on Sunday blamed the National Rifle Association (NRA) for the lack of action in Congress on gun control legislation. Sanders told host Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that it’s “unspeakable” that students are no longer surprised by school shootings. “It’s a three-letter word. It’s the NRA,” Sanders said. “And it’s Trump and the Republicans who don’t have the guts to stand up to these people and that’s pretty pathetic." Sanders’s remarks come after 10 people were killed in a shooting at a high school in Texas late last week. The Vermont...

    Friday on New York City’s WABC 770 AM’s “Bernie and Sid in the Morning,” NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd criticized Fox News for not taking action against host Sean Hannity when he did not disclose he was a client of Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen while commenting on the FBI raids on Cohen’s office. ... Todd then denounced a post on Hannity’s website, “The Utter Hypocrisy of Chuck Todd,” which highlighted Todd’s wife, who was a consultant for Democrats. [SNIP]
  • Do the laws of Identity Politics compel Sen. Warren to take DNA test?

    Isn’t it delicious that Fauxcahontas, aka Sen. Elizabeth Warren — the liberal Massachusetts Democrat toying with a 2020 presidential run — is refusing to take a DNA test to finally prove whether her self-serving claims of Cherokee heritage are true? Actually, watching Warren squirm and Chuck Todd all but flagellate himself for having to ask about the DNA test on “Meet the Press” was more than delicious. It was tasty, kind of like a French omelet with crab meat at a fancy restaurant frequented by the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. "I know who I am, and never used it...

    (snip) NBC's 'Meet the Press' host Chuck Todd repeatedly asked Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin about the president's attitude, language, and word choice. President Trump made fun of the NBC host's "sleepy eyes" at a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday, and speculated that NBC might be "worse than CNN". "He's a sleeping son of a bitch, I'll tell you," Trump said about Chuck Todd's droopy eyes. "I understand you wanted to get back on an economic message, but ... last night he was praising authoritarian figures in China and North Korea and encouraging boos at the American press," Chuck Todd reported....

    When it was first announced last Thursday that President Trump was to personally meet with North Korea Dictator Kim Jong-un for negotiations, the media’s response varied from optimistic to seething anger. But with some time, it appears as though their consensus is now to denounce the idea as was blatantly obvious on Sunday’s Meet the Press. The entire panel up in arms and fretting that Trump was either going to hand North Korea a victory or blow a gasket at the meeting and start a war. Moderator Chuck Todd, still bitter because Trump called him a “sleeping son of a...

    During a speech at a campaign rally for a congressional race in Pennsylvania on Saturday, President Trump unleashed on the liberal media and NBC Political Director Chuck Todd whom he called a “sleeping son of a b*tch.” And as would be expected, CNN media reporter Brian Stelter and his Reliable Sources panel responded with their own righteously indignant hot takes. Chief among them was Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik who argued that if you laughed at Trump’s jokes you were damaging society.Stelter set up the tone of the show to once again be all about bemoaning how Trump treated...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – Hey, I’m old enough to remember last week, when every fake journalist in Texas and America was telling us that Texas senate candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, an Irish guy who represents a largely-Hispanic congressional district (thus the ‘nickname’), was the Democrat Party’s “rising star” who was going to whip Ted Cruz in the general election this coming November. Yeah, that was just another bit of fake news fed to all the fake reporters by the Democrats, who are desperate to pretend they have momentum and...

    Today on NBC's Meet the Press, Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) chatted with host Chuck Todd about the proper solutions to end mass shootings such as the one that occurred last week in Parkland, Florida that left 17 innocent Americans killed. Sen. Lankford argued for more extensive background checks, but maintained that the right to own guns is still a constitutional right that must be respected and recognized. Sen. Lankford also emphasized that the ultimate problem is not the type of gun used, but the intent of the person wielding the gun that makes the difference.  The host asked Sen. Lankford what,...

    During a February 18 appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press, Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) told Chuck Todd that handguns are used for crime far more often than AR-15s. Lankford’s statement followed Todd’s focus on how an 18-year-old can buy an AR-15 in Florida, but must be 21 in order to buy a handgun. During the live broadcast, Lankford responded, “An AR-15 is a rifle, a handgun is obviously a handgun…[and] there are three, four, five times as many crimes committed with a handgun than there are with a rifle.” He added, “When you look at the statistics, many, many, many,...

    On day one of the 2018 government shutdown, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) came out and claimed that he offered President Trump funding for his border wall in exchange for protection for so-called Dreamers via the Differed Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and he turned it down. Since then, the liberal media have been running around claiming that Trump was the reason an agreement couldn’t be reached. But during Sunday’s Meet the Press, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) chastised the media for buying the claim “hook, line, and sinker.” The dust-up with NBC host Chuck Todd began after Cotton was explaining that...

    Don "Dr. No! No!" Lemon of CNN shouts down contrary opinions he doesn't want to let his audience hear. Chuck Todd has a bit more subtle yet equally annoying method of accomplishing the stifling of inconvenient facts. He overtalks the interviewee. The more uncomfortable the fact is to liberal orthodoxy, the more desperately Todd performs his overtalk shtick. An example of Todd overtalking in order to suppress facts he doesn't want his audience hear happened on Tuesday's Meet The Press Daily on MSNBC when he was interviewing Republican Congressman Mark Meadows. Because Meadows was presenting solid evidence of bias against...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Sunday chided NBC's Chuck Todd for not asking her about tax reform during his interview of her that focused mostly on sexual misconduct claims made against members of Congress. Todd was set to close the interview, airing on "Meet the Press," without asking about the Republican tax reform plan, when Pelosi cut him off. "You mean we're not even going to talk about taxes?" Pelosi said. "You see, you have fallen into the place, where they [Republicans] are doing something that is going to increase the debt enormously, it's going to be a job...

    Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Daily on Tuesday that the U.S. House of Representatives has paid $15 million to alleged victims of sexual harassment by its own members in recent years. “We do know there is about $15 million that has been paid out by the House on behalf of harassers in the last ten to 15 years,” she said. “15 million dollars has been paid out over sexual harassment claims,” Todd replied, somewhat shocked. “So, obviously more than one member of Congress.” Pressed for details, Speier said she did not know how...

I’m not trying to be insulting. I’m trying to be descriptive. I think they’re really uneducated. I think they don’t know half what they think they know, and this lack of knowledge is accompanied...

    MSNBC’s self-crowned political referee, Chuck Todd, appeared to throw in the towel on enforcing D.C.’s political rules, or at least the journalistic ones. During the first segment of Monday’s MTP Daily, Todd and two of his panelists, Brian Karem and David Folkenflik, whined about how the media was expected to be impartial with President Trump attacking them. “But look, two generations of us as reporters. We're trained and conditioned to don't show emotion, we're the umpires and the referees.” Todd claimed. “When somebody is insisting on making you the story, what do you do? … I struggle with it.” It...

Such a lovely, peaceful nitwit. The fake reporters, anchors, editors, and management at CNN celebrated the nation’s birthday by learning that all their fake reporting and retracting stories and firing fake journalists led to a 20% decrease in the fake news network’s prime time audience during the...

Todd said the White House’s “war on the media” is a “war on the truth.” Partial transcript as follows: TODD Welcome back. Tonight—well, not just tonight—but I’m obsessed with the White House’s war on the press and on media. Let’s be clear about this, that war is nothing less than a war on the truth. Do we get it right all the time? Nope, we don’t. And when we don’t, we run a correction, and in some cases, people...
