‘And what irritates so many Republicans is that if it were any other candidate running against Hillary Clinton, this would be a pretty rough patch for Hillary Clinton given some of the items in the news’

NBC: Just Imagine How Bad Hillary Would be Doing if We Actually Covered Her Scandals! (NewsBusters)

After hyping “campaign chaos” for Donald Trump on Thursday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie turned to Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd and freely admitted the glaring media double standard in covering the presidential race: “And what irritates so many Republicans is that if it were any other candidate running against Hillary Clinton, this would be a pretty rough patch for Hillary Clinton given some of the items in the news.”

Todd agreed: “An incredibly rough patch.” He proceeded to list all of the Clinton controversies and scandals that the press have ignored: “Whether it's the current state of the economy, anemic growth. Whether it is her insistence again that somehow [FBI] Director Comey let her off the hook on e-mails when – and she sort of reinterpreted what Comey said in a way that was misleading. Throw in the discomfort for many on this Iran deal.... never mind we just started air strikes in Libya because ISIS is there.”

He concluded: “The point is, in the last five days this could easily have been Hillary Clinton's worst five days post-convention and instead the exact opposite and it's all due to Donald Trump's lack of self discipline.”
