WATCH: Clinton advisor scorches MSNBC’s Chuck Todd for pushing right-wing theories about foundation

PLEASE Watch Video - - -> https://vid.me/W3fN

A senior advisor to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign lit into MSNBC host Chuck Todd on Wednesday, accusing him of peddling in right-wing conspiracy theories surrounding her charitable foundation.

“Nobody, Democrat or Republican, raised a question about Neal Bush, the second President Bush’s brother, remaining on the board of the Points of Light foundation because these foundations are charitable organizations that are helping people who aren’t getting help from other places. What is going on here?” Joel Benenson asked Todd. “We are so politicized that we’ll listen to fringe elements like Steve Bannon, and the stuff he’s peddling to Donald Trump.”

Bannon, the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, became Trump’s campaign chief earlier this month. .

“Joel, it was Democrats — people working for President Obama — that were concerned of the optics,” Todd countered. “As Dick Lugar said, it’s not about the good intentions of President Clinton and Secretary Clinton. But the person giving the money may think it gives them something regardless, and that’s a bad thing.”

1. Chuckie Toad comes back with

typical Rethug talking point,must have had Mitch McTurtle on hold in his ear piece. Funny how the Pundit's get trapped from time to time,their ego's trip them up. Noticed his buddy Tweety is all in with the Rethugs again. Must be in line to be the Con Mans White House Press Spoke Person.

5. Yeah

they can always find a "Democrat" who is trying to maintain a "Fair and Balanced" approach.

Would be nice if Democrats actually supported and defended...oh, I don't know...DEMOCRATS

The MSM can always count on someone like Ed Rendell, so they can say; "well, let's see what a Democrat has to say about this", and then Rendell will say some BS or tepid defense while moaning about the "optics".

Ask Republican Mike Brown what he thinks of Trump being hundreds of millions of dollars in debt to the Chinese, and Mike Brown will say; "well, I just don't think that this is what the American people care about, but Hillary Clinton....."

It's maddening

8. Gave up on Tweety years ago.

When stories in the Social Society pages had he and his spouse doing the D.C./NYC Cocktail Circuit,and at the time,he was bashing Hillary and any Dems,then in the next breath,kissing asses of every freeking Rethug.

With his present Spouse's Congressional Run failure,man has the Guy gone full on Rethug kiss ass. Appears he is blaming Hillary for her Campaign demise. Watch we see is a Guy looking for a new spot in the Circuit. It's all about the Rolodex Baby.

2. They had to pull his head out at the same time.

He's at least 2 IQ points behind Sean Hannity. #notalenthack

9. AP tells a lie about Hillary and the media goes crazy running with their lie.

There is nothing Hillary Clinton can do to stop the media from lying about her. That simple fact is apparently beyond the comprehension of Chuckie.
