    Former President Trump knocked conservative pundit Megyn Kelly on Wednesday, calling her “nasty” just days after sitting with her for an extensive interview. “I sat down for an hour and then I did a Megyn Kelly one,” Trump told a crowd of supporters during a campaign event in Iowa on Wednesday, apparently referring to his previous interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I, she was, ya know, boy she became nastier all of a sudden,” Trump said of Kelly. “She was pretty nasty, didn’t ya think, anyone that watched it.”

    Donald Trump on Sunday said it was “my decision” to believe that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” — saying he didn’t respect the aides and lawyers who’d told him he’d lost. The former president, 77, was asked by NBC’s Kristen Welker on “Meet the Press” why he opted to ignore his “most senior lawyers” and campaign staffers about the election results. “Because I didn’t respect them,” Trump replied. Welker later asked the Republican frontrunner in the presidential primary whether he was “calling the shots … ultimately?” “As to whether or not I believed it was rigged? Oh, sure,” Trump...

During a brief transition last week, Welker thanked Todd for his guidance into the role. “I am ready, Chuck, and I just want to say I am also so thankful and grateful to you for this moment for entrusting me with this monumental, important role,” she said.

    Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the “majority” of Republicans delight in chaos at the U.S.-Mexico border because they believe it helps them politically. Murphy said, “Republicans have had multiple opportunities to come to the table and pass immigration reform that would fix the problem at the border. My belief is while you have a small group of Republicans who want to engage, the majority of that party delights at chaos at the border. You saw some of my colleagues on Tuesday, as soon as votes were done, rush down to the border to...

    Outgoing Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R-AR) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) should not try and relegate the COVID vaccine. Anchor Chuck Todd said, “You spent a lot of 2021 trying to get some skeptics to take the backseat in Arkansas, so I’m curious what you think of this.” Discussing requesting his state’s Supreme Court convene a grand jury to probe wrongdoing related to the coronavirus vaccine on Fox News, DeSantis said, “Like anything, you take an MRNA shot, the way to view it is what are the benefits and the drawbacks? It seems like...

Anchor Chuck Todd said, “Donald Trump ends up the nominee in 2024. You’ve said you won’t be a Republican anymore, so it implies you think the party can be saved.” Cheney said, “I think the party has to come back from where we are right now, which is a dangerous and toxic place, or the party will splinter, and there will be a new conservative party that rises if...

    Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he did not accept the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress spending as a reason for inflation. Anchor Chuck Todd said, “Do you accept the criticism the American Rescue Plan in 2021 contributed to inflation issue we’re dealing with right now.” Sanders said, “No, I don’t.

    Chuck Todd is unraveling before the eyes of the nation. The Meet the Press host on Friday reacted to the overturning of Roe v. Wade by comparing it to the ongoing “shattering” of democracy in America and ominously warned conservative politicians about the “tinder box” they have created. He also lashed out at Neil Gorsuch and Amy Coney Barrett, calling their appointments “unfair” and “out of bounds.” Getting emotional, he lamented, “Just take a step back and think about the consequential actions of this week. The two Supreme Court rulings that undid — one law 110 years old. This one...

It may have been an intern who made the ask for the show that is the longest-running television show in history. If so, oops. The communication director for Alaska congressional office for Alaska’s at-large seat took to Twitter to give his deadpanned answer: “Unfortunately, @chucktodd, I don’t...

Anchor Chuck Todd said, “Quick questions about immigration. Many of your Democratic colleagues are not happy with the decision to rescind Title 42 with what they believe is not an adequate enough plan.

    Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that then-President Donald Trump committed a “supreme dereliction of duty” when he “provoked” the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. Cheney said, “The January 6 situation and attack is obviously something that was fundamentally different. We all watched that unfold in realtime. We all lived through that attack. I will say the January 6 committee is very much focused on lessons learned from that first impeachment and very much focused on making sure the American people have all the facts and the truth about what happened.”
