Chuck Todd: ‘Silence from Republicans is stunning’ after Clinton links Trump to racist ‘alt-right’

On NBC’s Today show this Saturday, Meet the Press host Chuck Todd pointed out an interesting phenomenon among Republicans after Hillary Clinton directly referred to Donald Trump as a racist who embraces the “alt-right.”

On Thursday, Clinton gave a devastating speech linking Trump to the far-right racist fringe, saying that a man “with a long history of racial discrimination, who traffics in dark conspiracy theories drawn from the pages of supermarket tabloids and the far reaches of the internet, should never run our government or command our military.”

Todd pointed out how unprecedented it is that Republicans would refrain from counter-attacking after the Democratic nominee called the GOP nominee an outright racist in front of the national press.

“No Republicans outside the campaign said, ‘How dare you, Hillary Clinton, call the Republican nominee a racist,’” Todd said. “The sound of silence among mainstream Republican elected officials yesterday is stunning.”

    When a known lier tells another lie, after been certified as lier by FBI, there is nothing one can do to stop the pathological lier.

    Chuck Todd is a left wing reporter. He only opens his mouth to run down conservatives. Another media concubine, owned by the democrats.

    Donald Trump is a total embarrassment to the United States. Other countries are laughing at this buffoon and wondering why anyone would take him seriously.

    That’s because the GOP – every last one of them – knows he is a blatant racist and they want nothing to do with that…there is no defense -it is indefensible!!
