The president of the United States is a racist asshole, but Chuck Todd’s children are never allowed to say that no matter what. Chuck Todd’s orders!


In response to a question about Donald Trump calling him a “sleeping son of a bitch” at a congressional campaign rally in Pennsylvania, the Meet the Press host, for some reason, told the NBC-affiliate News4 that he bans his children from speaking freely about the president.

“I bring my kids up to respect the office of the presidency and the president.” He added that he does not allow his 11-year old and 14-year-old “to say anything negative, ever, about the president.”

What people do not understand about this administration is that you cannot engage with people or respect people that act in bad faith. I think some intellectuals think that you can just peacefully engage a person and change their minds.

It’s this Disneyfication and romanticizing of a society that never existed. It isn’t just conservatives that do this, it’s the Aaron Sorkin sort of liberals too.

Some ideas and people are so abhorrent you just cannot engage with them or you will lose. The bully will always be the bully. When people show you who they are, believe them.
