As useless as tits on a bull: Chuckie Todd compares Trump's coronavirus scandal to Hillary's emails

How many people died because of Hillary's emails?

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd Compares Trump Coronavirus, War Dead Scandals to Hillary Email Story

By Tommy Christopher


MSNBC’s Chuck Todd and The New York Times’ Peter Baker analogized scandals like President Donald Trump’s current coronavirus-related political difficulties and alleged comments about U.S. war dead to the intense coverage of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server four years ago.

Much of the media’s reaction to the blockbuster Bob Woodward recordings — which revealed that Trump knew in early February that the virus was much more deadly than the seasonal flu, yet continued to “downplay” the threat — has centered around gaming out the political effect of deceiving the American people about a pandemic that has killed over 190,000 of them.

1. MSNBC recognized Todd was unfit for afternoons but they leave him on Sunday AM? Does he have

photos of someone?

Or is MSNBC just stupid.

2. Oh but Republicans were convinced the emails were the most

important thing ever. In fact Hillary most likely lost the election because of the stupid laptop with bunch of emails on it that Comey felt the need to inform the congress about. Is he now saying emails weren't important?

12. First of all, I think it is fair to say that she undoubtedly lost the election for that reason.

Second, Comey didn't need to tell Congress, he wanted to. And it wasn't something that he had any right to do.

Comey's position was extraordinary: Any time they came across a new computer belonging to someone who at some point in their life been sent an email by Hillary Clinton they were in the presence of a potential crime scene. That was an insane point-of-view.

3. Now we need that old photo of

the graves on Hart Island in N.Y. with the “but her emails” banner.

6. I was wondering when they would make it a bigger deal?

One problem to Chuckie’s bold idea is there were no emails from Hillary and Trump is on a recorded interview saying these things! Your pandering falls short of what you think, Chuckie!

7. I'm no Toad fan, but he was correct in this case (talking only about media coverage).

The media coverage of this story is already more vicious and will likely be even more durable than the Hillary e-mail story. Rightly so. That's the point Toad was making.

10. And it was only a logical comparison to the current scandal. But the Todd hatred around here...

requires constant feeding.

8. He needs to be fired

This is so idiotic!!! He can't "both sides" this, it is an insult to everyone who has died in this pandemic, along with those who have suffered through it and lived. An insult to all who have lost their jobs as well.

9. Yikes!

... he's gone even farther off the deep end! He must know someone at the top at NBC... he really should be at FOX, playing "fair and balanced" with Hillary's email toll and the COVID death toll...

11. The statements aren't comparing the emails and drumpf statements

In terms of how bad they are. They were comparing the effect on the campaign that Hillary was forced to constantly defend herself instead of playing offense on her campaign just as drumpf is back on his heels defending himself now.

The analogy is entirely accurate even if it leaves out the the attacks on Hillary were an act of right wing fiction and those on drumpf are completely accurate.

13. So the French Horn

 

Scholarship Winner Chuckles Toad and VP of Political Affairs for Comcast Media,stepped into another Bear Trap. Chuckie is not the Brightest Bulb in any Lamp Post.

He will always carry water for the Management of NBC/MSNBC. Just a overpaid Shill.

17. Hillary lost because of her email scandal. So, I hope Chuck is right.

Hillary experienced a death by a thousand cuts from the email scandal four years ago. It allowed for Trump, justifiable or not, to deflect from his own awful self and have the campaign turn into a referendum on Hillary. You can debate what role the media played but that absolutely killed her campaign. It was the single biggest issue, even if it wasn't fair and this line of attack is.

It sucks but the reality is that the email scandal sunk Hillary.
