President Trump undermines the media’s power because he lacks “shame” about his lying, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd fretted on his Sunday show. Guest Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, rued how the media have not figured out how to handle Trump’s supposed deliberate policy of misstatements.

Todd then asserted: “As I’ve said, the only way to understand this is to realize he doesn’t have shame about it. And when we lose our ability to shame a politician, we lose a lot of our power. That’s for sure.”
