Todd Makes Faces and Rages at GOP Senator, Claims Dems Wouldn’t Fill Seat

Proving to be a Democratic Party court jester and not the political “referee” he claims to be, NBC political director Chuck Todd spent part of Sunday’s Meet the Press yelling and making faces at Republican Senator John Barrasso (WY).

According to Todd, his guest and Senate Republicans were “hypocrites” for following decades of precedent and filling a vacant Supreme Court seat in an election year, and ignored how Senate Democrats were suddenly against it.

At the top of the program, Todd describe the death of Justice Ginsburg and a “political crisis” and went on the attack after the Senator shared his kind words about her. Reading Barrasso’s own words from the 2016 fight over Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland, Todd accused him of not want to give Americans a voice in the process.

You would add on a different times, ‘I want to get the American people a voice in this.’ Um. Why don't you want to give the American people a voice this time,” he sneered.

Barrasso shot back with the accurate counterpoint that if the roles were reversed, the Democrats (and by extension, the media) would have no qualms about filling the seat. And proving just how much of hack he was, Todd tried to argue against it, yelling at his guest.
