Chuck Todd said something that rings true?

I am not a fan of Chuck Todd, but he was right when he said to Katy Tur “Trump is scared and doesn’t know what to say about the killing of George Floyd & he scared to answer questions to the press”. Trump maybe scared, but he’s a coward especially after his tweet about “looting leads to shooting”. This country is hurting and our president is not thinking of the violence, he is thinking of how it will affect himself.

2. I don't know if it's just that he's an ignorant coward,

it could be that someone finally made it clear to him that he can't publicly say what he really thinks about the execution of Floyd.

4. Obviously someone in the WH is a fan of archaic racist one liners and

had one ready for just such grief as is happening in Minneapolis.

8. That someone was probably Trump himself

He doesn’t need help. He can help others though, when they need something particularly vile to say.

6. Throwing out distractions.

His complaints about China were the same things he spouted for years before he was elected. Only new things was him blaming China for COVID-19 even though most other countries were also “misled” and yet the US leads in per capita infection rate. If this were all true, why did he wait over three years into his presidency to take “action?”

7. Trump's a bully and Chuck sounded almost sympathetic

Chuck (both sides do it) Todd is more interested in ratings than calling trump out on his bullshit...what's trump "scared" of?...his whole persona is racism and bigotry...marginalize "the other"...white rich guy is master..another dead black guy..he doesn't care...Trump will be back "on stage" tomorrow with feigned outrage right before he does his good people on both sides crap..

10. Let's see if there's follow-through from chucktodd

Certainly Lord Littlehands likes to pass himself off as the meanest, toughest SOB on the block, but the reality is that when there's hard work to be done or a tough call to make, Trump pulls a disappearing act. It's generally not been noticed by a lot of political commenters, for whatever reason. For chucktodd to say that Trump is "scared" augurs a major falling away of the scales on the eyes.

That is if there is follow-through, and this is not just a one-off on a Friday afternoon.

12. trump's "looting start shooting" comment didn't go over well with many in his own base

He lost some votes over it.

13. Even though he says he has "One Of The Great Memories Of All Time", he surely did not remember this

Even though he says he has "One Of The Great Memories Of All Time", he surely did not remember this from 1967.

Someone must be feeding these quotes to him.

14. This is one more crisis that Trump is mismanaging

Because the man is inept and unable to feel anything beyond his own dissatisfaction. He's loathe to make a comment because he's loathe to take accountability. He throws out red meat to his base hoping that's enough.

It's not.

All Trump is thinking about is how this effects him, his reelection.

Never forget, never forgive.
