NBC's Chuck Todd Laughably Insists More Illegal Aliens Will Solve Inflation



Todd snarked, as reported by NewsBusters:

Over the last few weeks, Republican Governors have been shipping asylum seekers to more liberal-leaning Democratic enclaves. Trying to send a message that they think migrants are a political problem for Democrats.

Wrong, Chuck. Abbott and DeSantis have two primary goals, both of which have worked, masterfully.

First, to demonstrate to Democrat city leaders the serious problem created as the influx of illegals continues to decimate border towns. Second, and most brilliantly, to illustrate the left’s complete hypocrisy when illegals show up on their doorstep. Such was the case when residents of the upscale liberal enclave of Martha’s Vineyard became apoplectic when just 50 illegals showed up on their island, prompting them to ship out the illegals within less than 48 hours. Sorry, Chuck — try harder, next time.


This is where Todd got hilarious — by demonstrating his economic ignorance.

But in fact the data shows us that more migrants could actually help solve one of the country’s most pressing problems.

Todd continued:

And you can see the labor force participation rate. It’s been dropping, we were at 63.4, we’re still sitting at 62.4.
One percentage point by the way, represents 2.6 million people missing from this workforce. And guess where these workers are missing from? They’re short 45,000 workers in Boston, they’re short under 400,000 in New York. They’re short 170,000 in Washington, D.C., even Miami, is short some 20,000 there.
So the point is, these migrants could actually be helping our labor force problem, which would help our supply chain — which could help inflation.

Huh?

As the old saying goes, “If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance baffle them with bulls**t,” right Chuck?

NBC's Todd Pesters Netanyahu About Donald Trump & Anti-Semitism




Todd started this portion of the interview by noting how Netanyahu has “a unique relationship with former President Trump.” After establishing that fact, Todd pointed out that Trump “has consistently flirted with some really fringe characters that spout this anti-semitic behavior, that preach white supremacy and white nationalism.”

“Why does he have this difficulty, do you think?” Todd asked Netanyahu as if a foreign leader had been paying attention to this controversy at all or knew what Trump was thinking.

Netanyahu mostly ignored Todd’s question and listed all the great things former President Trump did for the state of Israel:

First let me say that President Trump did great things for Israel. He recognized Jerusalem as our capital. Long overdue since King David proclaimed it as such 3,000 years ago. He moved the American embassy there and recognized our sovereignty in the Golan Heights. He got out of, what I believe is the disastrous Iran deal, that would have paved Iran's path with gold with hundreds of billions of dollars of sanctions relief toward the nuclear arsenal. So he’s done all these great things. I appreciate it, and I remain appreciative.


On the subject of Kanye West and white supremacist Nick Fuentes who Trump had dinner with almost two weeks ago, Netanyahu said “I think it is not merely unacceptable it’s just wrong. And I hope he sees his way to staying out of it and condemning it.”

Chuck Todd To Leave ‘Meet The Press,’ New Host Revealed



“It’s been an amazing nearly decade-long run. I am really proud of what this team and I have built over the last decade,” Todd said. “When I took over ‘Meet the Press,’ it was a Sunday show that had a lot of people questioning whether it still could have a place in the modern media space. Well, I think we’ve answered that question and then some.”

Todd said that one of the reasons he is leaving the show is so that his work doesn’t “consume” him “before it’s too late,” adding that he’s seen it happen to those around him. In his remarks, he announced his successor as Kristen Welker, NBC’s chief White House correspondent, who Todd said was a good choice and is “ready” to take over.

Conservatives have often been critical of Todd’s objectivity, especially during the Trump administration. For example, after “Meet the Press” broadcast an inaccurately edited clip of a Trump official in 2020, President Donald Trump demanded Todd’s termination after the network apologized.

Chuck Todd Compares Trump to Hitler, Claims the Media Under-cover Him




Chuck Todd may have pushed out of his job hosting Meet the Press, but it wasn’t because he was an original thinker. Todd posted a piece about “Confronting Trump” on NBCNews.com that – shocker – sprung out of a family trip Todd took to Germany, including tours of museums about the Nazi era. This, unsurprisingly, turns to comparisons of Trump and Hitler:

As many a scholar and victim of the Nazi regime has wondered aloud, how did such a civilized nation like Germany end up bringing a tyrant like Adolf Hitler to power? Why wasn’t he stopped sooner? Why did it take a global war to stop him? Why did the German people usher him in, in the first place? Why didn’t the German people rise up themselves and stop him and the Nazis?
There’s no doubt that this recent history is what has motivated so many entities in American politics to make decisions on their own to confront the perceived threat of Trump. The lesson we all have taken from history is to stand up to tyrants, not to cower.
In fact, there’s been no shortage of attempts to confront or “stop” Trump — just far more bad attempts than good ones.

Oh, they were "noble," he said, but they often backfire -- as he thinks will happen from Colorado and Maine trying to take Trump off the ballot. He lamented the Big Tech deplatforming of Trump didn't hurt him, and weirdly claimed nobody in the media pays attention to Trump's Truth Social rants. "Trump simply created his own social media ecosystem, which allowed him to communicate his crazy grievances, and his grievance-driven politics, directly to his supporters without any pushback or notice from mainstream America."

That's simply not true. We're being incessantly told about his "crazy grievances."

Todd claimed "Editing Trump or protecting the public from what Trump does and says only shields him from outrage. If anything, the media are probably under-covering Trump and what he’s promising to do. [!] Trump should be interviewed more, not less; he should be questioned confrontationally, but in different ways." Differently than Kristen Welker did? Wouldn't we like to know?

I love it when Trump is questioned confrontationally. He always makes a fool out of the questioner.
I would like to see Biden confronted with the questions that they toss at Trump, but that is impossible, ---his sycophants keep him hidden in the basement so that he doesn't show the depth of his dementia. Chuck Todd and those like him are either ignorant fools or they have some skin in the Democrat plot to destroy America.
