Skip to comments.Trump Calls Out NBC Host in Heated Interview: ‘You Gotta Tell the Truth, Chuck!’
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. Its 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 didnt 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 wasnt done there. He told Todd how he could improve his ratings, made a curious comment about Jon Huntsmans 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.

>> calls out the dishonest media at his own network, NBC
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.
Woo hoo!! Go Trump!! FUKR!!
The media is incapable of telling the truth. The are programmed to spew the narrative.
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.
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.
But Jon Huntsman? What do you have to lose when you're hovering between 1% and 2%?
Trump gets it right a lot of the time.
WoW... now thats the truth.. some of it..
NBC: Nothing But Crap.
You get an awful lot of straight talk listening to Trump for ten or fifteen minutes...
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.
Well, both Trump and Huntsman are Class A Douchebags. Too much douche in a single room could ignite the whole place.
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 don’t want this dude running for Pres, but I like seeing him go after these people. <<
This straight talker endorsed Harry Reid in 2010....yet some freepers have very short memories.
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.
Trump not running; Trump meets with Gingrich today
