Gaffe vs. Gaffe: MSNBC Praised Hillary on Terrorist Dad Response, Hammers Trump
Gaffe vs. Gaffe: MSNBC Praised Hillary on Terrorist Dad Response, Hammers Trump (NewsBusters)
The journalists at MSNBC responded differently to gaffes by Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. On Tuesday morning it became clear that Seddique Mateen, the father of the Orlando nightclub shooter, sat directly behind Clinton at a rally in Florida. Rather than express outrage, MSNBC journalists praised the Democrat’s quick response in putting out a statement in response.
However, when Donald Trump at a rally on Wednesday said that “maybe” “Second Amendment people” can do something about Hillary Clinton’s liberal judges, MTP Daily host Chuck Todd pounced. He opened show by demanding, “What did Donald Trump mean by this?”
Todd lectured, “Welcome to MTP Daily and welcome to what could be the point of no return for Trump's candidacy. Today is one of those days it felt like maybe the dam broke.” Todd added that the Republican is “facing new criticism just in the last hour of those ‘Second Amendment people’ comments you just heard.”
