Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” after playing a montage of Donald Trump on issues over the years, host Chuck Todd attacked the Republican presidential candidate and billionaire business mogul by comparing him to segregationist Alabama Democratic Gov. George Wallace.

Journalist Maria Hinojosa said, “I did my research. I went back, and I was like, ‘What did FDR say about Japanese Americans?’ He said they could never be trusted to own land, they could never be trusted to assimilate. What did Strom Thurman say in 1948, when he was running for president? That all of the bayonets of the U.S. Army will never be able to force Negroes into my home or my church. So if, and what I’m hearing from Latino leaders who I’ve been speaking to, if this was being said, these comments were being said about any other group, African-Americans, Italian-Americans, Jewish-Americans, the entire Republican Party, the entire Democratic Party, the entire media establishment would stand up and say no. And yet, the feeling is well, you know, how much can we get away with insulting Mexicans, Latinos, immigrants.”

Host Chuck Todd said, “I think the question is are the Republican leaders doing enough to distance themselves? Are they going to look back a year from now and say, ‘Boy, I should have been tougher?’ Is Jeb Bush going to say, ‘I should have just said, ‘You know, I’m not going on a debate stage with that guy?”

    Accurate statistics about illegals are virtually impossible to find.However, it is estimated that while they are about 4% of the population , they comprise about 35-40% of the Federal Prison population. Donald Trump made no other judgement other than an educated guess. If he was soooooo! wrong,and there actually were accurate statistics,Jeb Bush ( who is in reality the “smartest man” in the room because of the research he does when he calls meetings, he just tends to be a Progressive) would have slapped Trump in the face with them ( Jeb Bush, while he is a Progressive, is not a sissy either). So the best judge of whether Trump is correct is Jeb Bush, If he argues opinion vs.opinion ,it means facts are non-existent…….. but if he cites fact vs. opinion, means Gotcha!!
    So far no Jeb Bush Gotcha! moments with Donald Trump….that’s a good sign for Trump .

    Chuck Todd has room to talk…..when everybody in Washington is comparing him to a cross between Pee Wee Herman and Tiny Tim. The Nerve of Pee Wee Tiny Todd.

    Chuck is 99% correct, and he obviously forgets that the entire SW United States used to be a part of Mexico that got thrown out by land greedy whites in the 1800s. Yes, there are bad Mexicans but there are also bad whites, Jews, Negroes, you name it. If Trump gets nominated as Republican candidate I WILL NOT vote for him, if there is a 3d party candidate I’ll likely vote that way in case Hillary gets the Demo. nomination (hope she doesn’t).

      You obviously did not listen to the actual audio record of Trump’s statement, most of the audio played by the networks was heavily edited. Trump specifically stated the criminal element being sent out of Mexico into the US by the Mexican Government included a majority of violent criminals. All Trump did was state exactly what recent FBI, Border Patrol, DEA, and Police and Sheriff’s Departments have stated.The people (Hispanic as well as others) coming across the border, with tacit support by Mexican and US authorities, are doing so illegally and as illegal aliens they are criminals by US Code. The reports state clearly that although many of the illegal immigrants are not criminals in their home country they are being used as “mules” to move drugs and other contraband across the border. I live in a county adjacent to Washington DC, and we have a huge number of Hispanic illegals and Islamic illegals here. We now have the headquarters for the five worst Hispanic gangs in the county and their main interest is cocaine and heroin distribution for the Mexican and other drug cartels. The same officials have stated that there has been a complete reversal of what was seen as success in drug traffic interdiction through 2008 and what was a sharp decline in the traffic has literally exploded after Obama curtailed interdiction programs and literally
      suppressed enforcement of our drug laws throughout the country. Rape, assault,
      murder, and other violent crimes to include armed robbery by Hispanics who are
      in the country illegally has skyrocketed. Going after Trump is evidence that
      these supposed Hispanic support groups in the US don’t want the truth

    George Wallace didn’t want the Feds to bully the States. That’s why he stood up to them, and RIGHTLY SO. Strom Thurmond, using the very words Todd uses in the article, said that all the bayonets in the Army couldn’t FORCE blacks into his home or his Church. Since when is FORCING certain people on other people legal?!?!?!? This shows the “Progressive” mentality: FORCE AND COERCION. No tolerance of anyone different. So, the REAL bigots are the ones making the accusations.


    Who out there gives a flying crap about what chuck todd says????

  • reagangs

    Who’s Chuck Todd, never heard of him. Must be part of the lame stream media. Another “talking head” with nothing to say but repeats what his radical liberal, progressive, commie drone bosses demand. It’s all apart of the UN Agenda 21 program for world domination (i.e. communism).

  • gerald Hughes

    The liberal dem bloodsuckers would rip his guts out, if they could, they are terrified of this guy.
    Chances are good that the Clinton outlaw will go to jail, if he is elected as well as the entire top echelon of the IRS, Eri Holder, Katheryn Sibellius.And looking for Obama

    • As I said previously: Donald Trump is the best hope for the Dems in 2016. Especially if he chooses to run as an Independent candidate. Go Donald!

  • ijohnc1

    Who is Chuck Todd? some hack from the media, an expert on cover up and since when did he become and expert on the truth?
    “The truth is not anything, it just is”…Old Danish saying
    Todd has the typical hearing of the democratic/communists’ they only hear it their way, and that is without the truth in it.

  • The redhawk

    CHUCK TODD is an IDIOT and wants to be HILDERBEAST PRESS SECRETARY……SO…. whatever he says must be discounted as INCONSEQUENTIAL

  • Peatro Giorgio

    When was the last time anyone can recall anything of value being spoken or written by Chuck toadstool.

  • curtmavi38

    If Todd thinks that’s a terrible thing, he has got another think coming. George Wallace was a good governor of Alabama, he stood for the people of Alabama
    and did not back down when the Liberals tried to put him down. meh

  • Lorene B

    Trump sees a serious problem and has the vision to find a way to solve it. He reminds me a little of the buck stops at my desk, Harry Truman. Of course, he is a threat to those who want to fundamentally change our country. That’s a plus for him.

  • KDC

    Well, the first thing I saw in the picture of Wallace was the illuminati hand gesture. With the left hand the circle represents the all seeing eye, and the three fingers represent 666. Wonder how that’s working out for him? A true Pregressive/commie!
    Btw, you can’t begin to compare Trump to Wallace. The Libs sure are running scared.

  • VirgoVince

    Too bad Wallace was a dumocrud, he was right about segregation!!
    Too bad it had to end!
    WHEN did TRUTHS and FACTS become an insult?? NO ONE can prove Trump wrong about his statement, so it must be Truth and Fact!!

    • Neither Truth nor Fact. Just his opinions. And they don’t have to be “proven”. The market issues its own verdict, and many companies are abandoning the SS Trump. I don’t see any major corporations jumping onto his bandwagon. Free enterprise at work.

  • Sylvester Jones

    Sorry chucky you got it wrong, he’s talking about ILLEGAL Mexicans, Latinos and immigrants.

  • adbj102

    Fascinating, The democrats who have almost destroyed our country are afraid of Trump! One simple reason, AS much as they try to control free speech with Policital correctness and accusations of racism and hate, The people have spoken, loudly! “THE DEMOCRAT LIBERAL LEFTISTS DO NOT SPEAK FOR ALL OF US” Do you get that, those who control us and are destroying America…. ARE NOT US as much as they pretend to be! Do all Americans Emulate NYC ?? Or Washington DC?? No. those of us in “the flyover states” as The man who calls himself “obama” designates us, while he is insulting us and betraying his real hatred for us! The radical communist liberals in control of the huge welfare corrupt cities, do not represent US! And they know it, So as usual in Chicago Politics, they lie about anyone not of their ilk!
