NBC host Chuck Todd shocked many observers on Sunday during the broadcast of his show ‘Meet the Press’ when he falsely claimed that the second amendment ‘does not exist.’
As The Daily Wire reports:
“This current version of the Republican Party is being held hostage by a vocal minority obsessed with an absolute right that does not exist,” Todd said on his show on Sunday.
Todd went on an anti-gun, anti-GOP rant to open his show, following in the footsteps of liberals who blast anyone for offering “thoughts and prayers” after a shooting in Texas left 19 children and two adults dead.
“It’s become our uniquely American ritual of words after each episode of this uniquely American serial tragedy. Thoughts and prayers, nothing we can do,” Todd said. “No law would have stopped this. The real problem is mental illness. If only the victims had been armed. More thoughts and prayers.”
“How do we allow an 18-year-old, in this case, [the shooter], to buy assault rifles and accumulate more than 1,600 rounds of ammunition, all legally, mind you,” Todd said. “Whether it’s guns, or climate change, or protecting our democracy, we no longer have a politics that can meet these crucial moments that we face.”
Todd’s false statement occurred while he was interviewing far-left filmmaker Michael Moore who was advocating for the repeal of the second amendment.
