Chuck Todd: “Trump’s Actions Put Us In A National Nightmare.” Here’s What’s Really Happening.

It is with the deepest solemnity and severity that I declare that Chuck Todd is a potato.

See how that works? Strong language doesn’t necessarily make something true, but you’d think it does going by the shirt-rending language Dem pundits like Chuck Todd are using to describe President Trump’s calls for other countries to reopen their investigation into the Bidens’ shady dealings there.

The MSNBC anchor began his Thursday afternoon edition of MTP Daily by oh-so-seriously telling his audience that Trump’s public call for China to investigate Joe Biden placed America squarely in the center of a “national nightmare.”

“I do not say this lightly,” Todd began. “Let’s be frank, a national nightmare is upon us. The basic rules of our democracy are under attack, from the president.”

“Donald Trump is using the power of his office to solicit interference in the 2020 presidential election—while doing it relying on a debunked conspiracy or two,” he said. “This is not hearsay or a whistleblower’s complaint or a memorandum of a phone conversation. You heard the president do it himself on the White House lawn.”

“This moment should arguably be a national emergency—the founding fathers would have considered it a national emergency if the president publicly lobbied multiple foreign governments to interfere in the next election,” Todd continued.

Noting that Republicans have supposedly “failed” to condemn Trump’s actions, Todd further lamented that this was “remarkable considering the precedent it would set and the lasting damage it would do to our democracy.”

“It is tough to say lightly,” he sighed. “But this is the moment we are at.”

Is it really, now? Funny, I hadn’t noticed the sky falling.

CNN’s chief media correspondent Brian Stelter shared the clip of Todd’s woeful soliloquy in a tweet that, as it should be, was promptly roasted.

A national emergency? Not if you ask the People of Twitter™

I’d like to know too, Stelter.

Oh my word, thank goodness we don’t have to worry about Avenatti 2020.

Exactly.

Naturally.

And it will be glorious.

Do you remember? Frank Hart remembers.

How dare he investigate corruption. The audacity!

Nailed it.
