Chuck Todd producers on Meet the Press came out with a piece that decimated Trump for lying about COVID-19 and the fatal results.
Trump decimated by his own lies
This piece is one of the best takedowns of the president that Chuck Todd and his producers have done to date. For once, they did not try to create a rationale or a whataboutism.
Todd queued up the piece reminding Americans that the Atlantic reported that Trump called soldiers losers and suckers. He then pointed out that Bob Woodward’s new book Rage and the released tape proved that the president knew all along with the danger, the deadliness, and infectiousness of COVID-19.
Trump, with his wording, admonished the president for lying to Americans as he spoke in public. He also made it clear that Republicans were complicit in the deceit.
Todd had a memorable phrase to debunk the president’s excuse that he lied to Americans to prevent panic, given that you do not yell fire in a crowded theater.
“Some Conservatives, but not many elected ones, defended the president for remaining calm saying you don’t yell fire in a crowded movie theater,” Todd said. “It’s true. But you do if the theater is actually on fire.”
Chuck Todd continued the piece by allowing the president’s secret vs. public words to become his judge, jury, and, hopefully, executioner. When one watches it side by side, it is devastating. Even a cult member could see the deception.
Subsequently, Todd had Dr. Anthony Fauci on who, unlike other times, was more forceful in his challenge of the president’s words. The president is an evil human being. What he has done is tantamount to voluntary manslaughter.
