#FireChuckTodd trends on Twitter after MSNBC anchor ignites uproar with election eve Nazi smear

Published

NBC's Chuck Todd calls out President Donald Trump for not condemning anti-Semitic attacks (Screen cap).

Calls for MSNBC to fire Chuck Todd trended nationwide on Twitter after anchor likened supporters of Bernie Sander (I-VT) to Nazi Brownshirts during Monday’s “special” episode of “Meet the Press Daily.”

The host uncritically quoted from a column that appeared at a right-wing website.

“No other candidate has anything like this sort of digital brownshirt brigade,” the column read. “I mean, except for Donald Trump.”

The backlash resulted in the hashtag “Fire Donald Trump” trending on Twitter.

Sen. Lindsey Graham's (R-SC) re-election campaign looks increasingly in peril, according to one of America's top elections forecasters.

The latest update from the University of Virginia's Center for Politics claims that Graham today "is in greater danger of an upset" than he was just weeks ago, which has led to a ratings change in Graham's race against Democratic rival Jamie Harrison from "likely R" to "leans R."
