In the wake of New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex’s disgusting use of concentration camps imagery to attack ICE and Border Patrol, members of the liberal media, most notably CNN’s Brian Stelter, Andrew Kaczynski, Chris Cuomo, and MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, rushed to defend her and spin the comments. But during Wednesday’s MTP Daily, NBC political director Chuck Todd put his foot down and stood above his colleagues as he called out Ocasio-Cortez and gave her a lesson on the Holocaust.
On Tuesday's MTP Daily, MSNBC host Chuck Todd again put on display the fact that journalists are so far to the left on abortion that they actually sometimes press Democrats to go even further left instead of making an effort to look balanced. As Emily's List president Stephanie Schriock appeared as a guest, Todd repeatedly suggested that Democrats should be more strident about pushing abortion rights, even hinting Democrats should cut funding for rare pro-life Democratic candidates.
On Wednesday's MTP Daily, host Chuck Todd cited two polls suggesting the public was mostly supportive of abortion. By contrast, a couple of days earlier when Steve Kornacki was fill in host for the same show, he was more accurate in admitting that polling can also be found that suggests most Americans oppose abortion.
With his arms flying around the screen, self-proclaimed politics referee Chuck Todd seemed more like an armchair quarterback shouting plays at the TV during Tuesday’s MTP Daily on MSNBC. Todd was literally up in arms over the apparent utter lack of strategy and prioritization from Congressional Democrats looking to get rid of Trump.
The bar for “collusion” just keeps getting lower. According to MSNBC political director Chuck Todd, an Attorney General briefing his own President about a soon-to-be-released report now meets the standard.
MSNBC host and self-appointed referee of American politics, Chuck Todd was visibly irritated Wednesday evening after Attorney General William Barr admitted before Congress that the Trump campaign was spied on in 2016, and he planned to investigate it. Suggesting Barr was “perpetuating” a “fact-less conspiracy theory”, Todd denied known facts of the case and spun a series of falsehoods while declaring Barr had “gaslit the country”.
The liberal media had their hopes raised of seeing President Trump jailed raised by the recent dubious reports by The New York Times and The Washington Post claiming that members of the Special Counsel felt Attorney General Barr mischaracterized their findings. Few in the liberal media would dare to admit the questionable nature of the sourcing of their reporting, but that’s what MSNBC host Chuck Todd did during Thursday’s MTP Daily.
On Tuesday's MTP Daily on MSNBC, fill-in host Katy Tur fretted over the refusal of many Senate Democrats to vote in favor of the Green New Deal program when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brought it up for a vote. Tur wanted to blind her guests with "science." The "science" demands radical change.
Well, it’s finally here. Special Counsel Robert Mueller delivered his report on the Russia investigation to Attorney General William Barr and the liberal media began to conflagrate. During the early evening buzz on MSNBC’s MTP Daily, host Chuck Todd seemed to express concern over the fact that Mueller allowed President Trump and his legal team to answer written questions, instead of testifying before a grand jury.
If ever there were a famous Virginian, it is George Washington. Born and raised in Virginia, Mount Vernon was of course his historic home. Yet somehow, a confused Tur has claimed that Washington was a "native son of New York." The unbelievable gaffe occurred today on MSNBC, as Tur handed off her MTP Daily hour to Ari Melber and his The Beat.
Our friend Joe Concha with The Hill was in rare form on Friday’s Fox & Friends, ripping everyone from Chuck Todd for not fact-checking Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) about the Green New Deal to late night comics for their refusal to lampoon her to the double standard regarding the scandals rocking the three state-wide Democrats in Virginia.
Not to gratuitously insult Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but she has to be one of the, um, most lightly-informed pols in a long time to wander onto the national stage. But that didn't stop Chuck Todd from lavishing praise on her. Discussing his just-concluded interview with Ocasio-Cortez with fellow MSNBC host Ari Melber, Todd found reason to variously describe her as thoughtful, refreshing, impressive and smart.
