NBC host Chuck Todd called out White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Sunday after she tried to bash a Muslim member of Congress instead of answering questions about President Donald Trump’s immigration policy.
“The president doesn’t sound like somebody who wants to solve the [immigration] crisis,” Todd told Conway on Sunday.
“This week, you know, respectfully, from the other side you have this anti-Semitic congresswoman,” Conway replied, referring to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
“Whoa, whoa, whoa. No, no, no,” Todd interrupted. “I know what you are trying to do here.”
“The president is trying to brow beat Democrats,” the NBC host added. “The president is trying to brow beat them to come over. That’s no way to get a compromise.”
Conway, however, insisted that the “invitation is open” for Democrats to meet with the president.
“What part of shutting down the government, I’ll do this, that’s not how anybody would be coerced to saying, yeah, let’s sit down and see if we can come and reach common ground?” Todd noted.

Draft-dodging Trump tells Americans ‘If people don’t want to fight for our country they can leave’
President Donald Trump spoke to the press outside the White House Wednesday on his way to North Carolina telling those complaining about him to "leave."
"If people want to leave our country, they can," Trump said. "If they don't want to love our country, if they don't want to fight for our country, they can [leave]. I'll never change on that, no."
It's an ironic statement from Trump because his father was able to get a doctor to diagnose him with bone spurs that prevented him from being able to go to war in Vietnam. Former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey accused Trump of lying and dodging the draft with a fake diagnosis.
