Trump Calls Out NBC Host in Heated Interview: ‘You Gotta Tell the Truth, Chuck!’
The Blaze ^ | 10-05-11 | Christopher Santarelli

Posted on 12/05/2011 10:30:28 AM PST by Lazlo in PA

Whether through sound bites or live audio, “The Donald” has been making the rounds on all the news talk shows this morning in response to GOP presidential candidates Texas Rep. Ron Paul and former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman electing to skip the debate that Donald Trump will moderate on December 27. It’s been a war of words to say the least.

During his second NBC interview of the morning, Trump got heated with “Daily Rundown” host Chuck Todd, at one point saying, “I didn’t call you, you called me.” That was in response to Todd saying that Trump wanted to come on to the show to respond to a poll, which Trump said was “false.”

But Trump wasn’t done there. He told Todd how he could improve his ratings, made a curious comment about Jon Huntsman’s religion, and took some shots at former President George W. Bush after his top advisor Karl Rove also laughed at the idea of Trump holding any sway in the GOP.

“Karl Rove gave us George Bush and George Bush crashed and burned and because of that we have Obama,” Trump told Todd. “The Republicans need to get rid of Karl Rove and they need fresh blood because Karl Rove is going to lead them into doom.”

You can watch it all below:

Whatever you think of Trump, he does make good points here that are easy to understand and also calls out the dishonest media at his own network, NBC. I don't want this dude running for Pres, but I like seeing him go after these people.

We are badly in need of pols who call out the lying biased media for what they are.

Whatever you think of Gingrich, he, like Trump, does not kowtow to the media machine.

Money talks - well if you have money - people will listen;)

Trump is a rabble rouser and celebrity addict - which in these perilous times - is a good thing.

Karl Rove gave us George Bush and George Bush crashed and burned and because of that we have Obama,” Trump told Todd. “The Republicans need to get rid of Karl Rove and they need fresh blood because Karl Rove is going to lead them into doom.”

Finally, someone has the guts to tell the truth about that little puke Rove.

It seems quite often Trump is the only one to publicly state the truth. Not one of the Republican candidates has this quality.

I understand why Ron Paul would skip a debate hosted by Donald Trump. The Donald's questions on foreign policy might offend his moonbat base.

But Jon Huntsman? What do you have to lose when you're hovering between 1% and 2%?

What is delightful about this is now the charge is out there on Rove's incompetence. He is going to be forced to respond and as we all know, he has a very poor record to work with. This will be fun to watch play out.

Rush covered this, they are all attacking Trump in unison because they are not sticking to left MSM controlled debates. I think this will be on the Internet, which also threatens MSM hold on election Info.

The media is Obama, Good for Trump pushing back.

I totally agree that the eight years of weakness and incompetence of George W. brought us Obama. EIGHT years of elitist, above-the-fray, big-spending government, culminating in TARP, depressed America to the point that we were willing to place hope in a teleprompter. Bob

I did NOT like the way Rove torpedoed Christine O'Donnell in the Delaware Senate race, after his boy Mike Castle lost to Christine. He should have been tossed from the Republican Party because of that, and I will forever after look negatively upon any candidate that Rove is hired by.

Huntsman is a CFR sock-puppet. Trump is an economic nationalist. Huntsman probably didn't want to lose what little following he has having to answer tough questions on economics and trade policy.

Whatever you think of Trump,

Along with blood-for-access Eason Jordon he's setting up a GOP "debate". Fuddle duddle Trump and Jordan, whoever he is. There's precious little info available on him on the internet except a puff piece on Wiki. Can't find out date of birth, place of birth, parents, religion, if any, whatever. Trump should do his birther bit on his new pal.

Trump is a charlatan!

Trump says the things that need to be said. I look forward to his Debate—it will be good TV if nothing else. Trump shakes things up—and in these times we need a bit of shaking.
His show will be, I guess, heavy on economics.

Slamming Rove is enough for me today. I didn't say I was voting for him or wanted him to run for anything. If all he does is goes around poking people in the eye then he is doing more than some on our side to date. He also called out George Will for having an absolutely terrible record for prognosticating politics. Why anyone listens to that dope, I will never understand.
