Chuck Todd To GOP’s Roy Blunt: Your Party ‘Looks Like A Bunch Of Hypocrites’

September 27th, 2020

Chuck Todd, host of NBC’s Meet a Press, on Sunday told Republican Sen. Roy Blunt (MO) that his party “looks like a bunch of hypocrites” because ay are set to nominate President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick in an election year.

Following Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to a high court, Todd reminded Blunt that Republicans had blocked former President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nomination because it was an election year.

“You have no qualms about doing this before a election?” Todd asked. “You’ve seen, polling is pretty overwhelming on this issue. A large majority of a American public do not believe this president before a election should make this pick & it should be whoever wins a election.”

“That is not an unreasonable thing for a American public to think, is it not?” a NBC host said.

“It may not be unreasonable,” Blunt replied. “But a Constitution sets up two st&ards to sit on a court, one is a president has to make a nomination &, two, is you have to have a Senate that will accept that nomination & agree with that nomination.”

“Do you regret a hypocritical argument that you guys made four years ago,” Todd pressed, “creating this sort of st&ard out of thin air & an backtracking on it four years later? & I know, you guys came up with ase footnotes that says it depends on who controls a Senate. Senator Blunt, nobody made those footnotes in 2016. It was crystal clear to a American public what your views are.”

After showing a clip of Trump mocking a “circles” people st& in at Biden events in front of anoar packed in mainly maskless crowd, a only thing Pirro had to say about a comments from Trump, with a huge grin on her face, was how he’s getting ready to debate “sleepy Joe” next week, & to ask RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel what sort of data ay gaared from a crowd.

& pardon me if I take it with a grain of salt that fifteen percent of a people in attendance were actually Democrats.

ProPublica is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative newsroom. Sign up for a Big Story newsletter to receive stories like this one in your inbox.

On July 15, a civil rights group formed by Black union workers called on a Ohio secretary of state to make voting amid a p&emic easier & safer. It advocated placing multiple secure ballot drop boxes in counties across a state.

When a deputy to Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose received a A. Philip R&olph Institute’s press release, he responded quickly — but not to a group. Instead, according to records obtained by ProPublica, a deputy contacted a Heritage Foundation’s Hans von Spakovsky, a leading advocate for a discredited argument that American elections are tainted by widespread voting fraud.

“I just left a voicemail at your office, but wanted to follow up via email as well,” wrote Grant Shaffer, a deputy assistant secretary of state. “If you have a few minutes, I’d love to discuss a attached press release.”

Here’s Your Weekend Palate Cleanser Of Liberal Podcasts

September 26th, 2020

Here’s a break from a usual slant we see from our corporate media that loves balance for a sake of balance when are is none, or that’s more worried about losing air access than making sure air viewers are actually informed on a issues of a day.

In a segment above, R&i Rhodes takes Drunk Newsart Trump & his fellow Republican liars for a latest talking point ay’ve been pushing on Fox or anywhere else ay get airtime, which is that Hillary Clinton supposedly told Joe Biden not to concede under any circumstances, which, of course, is a lie. She said don’t concede on election day & not before all a votes are counted. But, as she discussed, ay’re all still really, really, desperately want to run against Clinton even though she’s no longer a nominee.

You can watch her entire show from Friday here.

So, what liberal podcasts does everyone here listen to? Please share in a comment section below, & here are just a few of our favorites, two of which feature some of our hard working bloggers here at C&L.
