NBC host Chuck Todd on Sunday corrected Hugh Hewitt after the conservative radio host suggested that only members of the media have been critical of President Donald Trump’s attitude about the Russian government.
During a panel discussion on Meet the Press, Hewitt argued that “the American media is trying to infuse Donald Trump with a sort of willful blindness he doesn’t demonstrate” toward Russia.
“Whoa!” Todd interrupted. “What the heck are you talking about with the media? This isn’t the media. This is John McCain, this is Mark Warner. These are serious officials on both sides. This is not the media. This is such a cop-out. I’m tired of that.”
According to Hewitt, whose MSNBC show was recently cancelled, the media “tries to make Trump” seem unprepared for his summit with Russia President Vladimir Putin.
“It’s not the media that’s saying this!” Todd exclaimed. “It’s people inside the White House, Hugh.”

Trump brags Amy Coney Barrett will kill abortion rights: ‘I guess she maybe would’
President Donald Trump told Fox News that he expects Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett to strike down Roe v. Wade and the right to have an abortion.
Trump made the remarks in an interview that aired Sunday on Fox & Friends after host Pete Hegseth noted that the president had previously said that his Supreme Court picks would "automatically" overturn Roe v. Wade.
"I didn't think it was for me to discuss that with her," Trump explained. "Because it's something that she's going to be ruling on. And this is what I was told -- although, I would have had the right to do that."
Trump has recruited an army of volunteer lawyers to immediately contest the election results: report
According to a report from Politico, Donald Trump's campaign has recruited an army of hundreds of volunteer lawyers who will supplement a team of hired attorneys to dispute vote totals and observe polling locations in an attempt to stave off an election defeat for the president on November 3rd.
Pointing out the effort to gear up for legal challenges began over a year ago, the report states "Republicans are preparing pre-written legal pleadings that can be hurried to the courthouse the day after the election, as wrangling begins over close results and a crush of mail-in ballots."
This GOP senator just proposed a bill to help Trump undermine the election
A new bill proposed by Republican Sen. Rick Scott is "entirely unworkable," Slate reported Thursday evening, but demonstrates the GOP's intense desire to make sure millions of votes aren't counted in the general election by severely restricting the time frame during which they can be tallied.
The Orwellian-named "Help America Vote Act of 2020," which Scott proposed Thursday, would help to codify President Donald Trump's desire, stated last week, to ensure that the preliminary tally of votes on Election Day will count as the final vote count in the election.
