The liberal-biased mainstream media, which has a very clear agenda against any Republicans in power, has been particularly obsessed with attempting to undermine the presidency of change agent outsider President Donald Trump.
Liberal media figures invite members of President Trump’s administration onto their programs under the guise of having a serious conversation with them, but then without fail try to bait and trap them. When Chuck Todd of Meet the Press tried to do the same thing to Trump’s Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, he learned the hard way from Fox News that he can’t get away with it.
Todd tried to get Tillerson to bash his boss Trump, or at least to make it look like Tillerson somehow had conflicted loyalties. Todd asked Rex a question about his allegiance to Trump versus the United States. Responded Tillerson, “I understand I have to earn [Trump’s] confidence every day with how I go about those affairs and how I go about conducting the State Department’s activities consistent with the direction he wants to take the country.” Then Todd asked, “What’s the line between service to the president and service to the country?” Answered Tillerson, not taking the bait, “I will never compromise my own values, Chuck. So that’s my only line. And my values are those of the country.”
Chuck Todd’s sleazy “gotcha” tactics thoroughly disgusted the co-hosts of Fox & Friends on Fox News. Said Abby Huntsman, “He’s clearly trying to cause drama between the secretary of state and the president or try to prove there is some sort of drama that’s taking place. What I am shocked about is you’re sitting down with the secretary of state, one of the most important people today and you’ve got a such a short period of time to ask really serious, important questions. And that is where you go?”
Pete Hegseth pointed out that Todd was essentially asking Rex if he was willing to commit treason against America in order to affirm his dedication to President Trump. Said Pete, “He’s effectively insinuating, ‘Will you put Trump before the Constitution? Are you more loyal to him than the Constitution? Are you willing to commit treason to cover up?’ That’s the insinuation. ‘What’s your line? If President Trump asks you to do something illegal, will you do it?’ That’s what he asking of the secretary of state. The insinuation there is: ‘This president is unhinged, not following the Constitution, will you follow him in that direction?’ It is unbelievable.” Are you glad Pete Hegseth called out snake Chuck Todd for this?
