Chuck Todd: Trump thinks ´white Europeans
are good and brown immigrants are bad´

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Julia Manchester

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/12/2018 9:24:13 PM

"Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd said on Friday that President Trump believes white Europeans are better than brown immigrants. The comment follows the president´s reported remarks referring to Haiti and African countries as "sh**hole countries." "Folks, you can debate all you want about the president’s recent language, but you cannot debate what it seemingly reveals about his core beliefs — that white Europeans are good and brown immigrants are bad," Todd said on "MTP Daily" on NBC. The president has faced fierce backlash in the media and from many members of both political parties for the remarks, which were

Comments:
That type of language from a member of the media is reckless, outrageous and beyond biased! Can you imagine the former MTP host Tim Russert saying such a thing?? Of course not! And he was certainly no conservative. The media has gone so far down the toilet that I don´t know how they can ever redeem themselves. It is infuriating cause the media was meant to protect American citizens. They are now just extremely biased, corrupt, political hacks who are ripping our country apart. They are clearly abusing the special privileges they were given under our Constitution.

You are absolutely right, OP.

This inflammatory language and "psychiatrizing" (a term coined by Prof. Dershowitz; i´d never heard it before) is extremely dangerous.

The Left is still trying to bring about revolution.

Trump was making a point that educated immigrants from Asia, which would include people of different colors, might be of more benefit to the nation that hundreds of thousands of uneducated dependents.

I think Chuck Todd hates Asians.

Chuck was sobbing like a little girl the night Hillary lost to Trump and still can’t get over it. He’s not a journalist any more. He’s an extreme left wing hack and media hit man. No credibility. No viewers. No hope for anything good to come from the future.

Only in Chuck Todd´s desired world, as it fits their story line.

Trump is calling for merit based immigration, which does not limit it to white, European countries.

I´ve said over and over, the GOP should be calling for legal immigration of 30-35 million over 15-20 years, but have it open to Russians, Chinese, India, Korea, Japan, Philippines, Brazil, Australia, Ireland, etc.. Cross-spectrum of people, nationalities, which includes people of color.

Trump, and all elected officials, have a fiduciary responsibility to promote the best interests of the Citizens who elected them.
To do otherwise is to violate their trust and deserve impeachment. The Left is demanding that Trump commit impeachable offenses.

A Republican running for the U.S. House of Representatives in Oklahoma said he would "use" his Second Amendment if anyone treated his daughter the way President Trump treats women. Danny Stockstill, a Republican running for the vacant seat in Oklahoma’s 1st Congressional District, admitted that, while he approves of Trump’s job in office, he doesn’t want him to be a role model for his children. “So why are we so afraid to say, ‘There’s no way I want my son to act like [Trump]?´" Stockstill said during a Tuesday night forum, according to the Tulsa World. “If my daughter ever

Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote that Rosenstein "would recuse from all or part of any matter if recusal were deemed appropriate by Department officials who are informed about the matter. "Otherwise," Boyd continued, "[Rosenstein] has a responsibility to fulfill his oath to well and faithfully execute the duties of his office." Graham sent a letter to Rosenstein last

The rhetorical attacks on incoming National Security Council Executive Secretary Fred Fleitz (the author’s former colleague) have been shrill and ineffective. Conservatives have rallied to Fleitz’ defense, bolstered in part by Fleitz’s long history of work as a Central Intelligence Agency analyst, State Department official, and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence staffer, along with his solid reputation working on Iran and nonproliferation-related issues. According to Trump administration insiders, the White House blames Obama allies and Iran deal advocates for ginning up the non-controversy, and there’s no indication of a willingness to surrender the scalp of a long-time national security

Peter Strzok, who was pulled off Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s investigative team last year, played a more central role than previously known in both the Russia and Hillary Clinton email probes, a lawmaker familiar with the matter told Fox News Tuesday. The lawmaker´s assessment of Strzok´s role in both investigations was based on the most recent records and testimony, including a closed-door interview with FBI espionage chief Bill Priestap. Priestap was interviewed Tuesday as part of an ongoing joint investigation by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. Priestap was Strzok´s supervisor and oversaw both the Russia and Clinton investigations.

The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

DUBAI - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday cautioned U.S. President Donald Trump about pursuing hostile policies against Tehran, saying “America should know ... war with Iran is the mother of all wars,” but he did not rule out peace between the two countries, either. Iran faces increased U.S. pressure and looming sanctions after Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from a 2015 international deal over Iran’s nuclear program. Addressing a gathering of Iranian diplomats, Rouhani said: “Mr Trump, don’t play with the lion’s tail, this would only lead to regret,” the state new agency IRNA reported. “America should know that

And no group has fought the public longer than the gated community of Hollister Ranch, about 130 miles north of Los Angeles.
