MSNBC host Chuck Todd called President Trump's attacks on Joe Biden's son, Hunter, "vicious" and said that the network was not going to "reward" the president by airing them.
"President Trump held a campaign rally in Minnesota last night. There are parts of it we can't show you, or rather, there are parts of it we're not going to show you," Todd said Friday on MSNBC. "The president's red meat vitriol wasn't new. Neither was his use of profanity.
"The president went further than he's ever gone before. So we are going further than we've ever gone before to say we aren't going to play the sound. We aren't going to repeat the president's vicious attacks on Hunter Biden," Todd added.
The news anchor claimed Trump character "assassinated" Hunter Biden, saying it was particularly inappropriate because he was a private citizen. Todd noted the attack was "newsworthy" but that he could not air it in "good conscience."
Trump's campaign responded to Todd on Twitter Friday night saying, "Go ahead, keep protecting the Bidens and censoring the movement to #DrainTheSwamp." They then attached a video of Trump's attack.
The president attacked Hunter Biden for five minutes during his rally in Minnesota. As a part of the attack, he acted out a fake interview between Biden and Todd. Trump called NBC "one of the worst" networks and mocked Todd as being a Biden promoter.
The president and his allies have accused the Bidens of corruption over their dealings in Ukraine, pointing out that Hunter Biden was on the board of a Ukrainian gas company while his father was vice president.

‘Chuck Todd refuses to air ‘vicious’ Trump attacks on Hunter Biden’
So who exactly missed seeing it on CNN Duh?
I must have missed F. Chucks rant. But then again, I always do.
= = =
One Sunday morning, as Chuck was previewing for the upcoming hour, I picked up my Remote Commander and said, “I am not going to argue with you for the next hour,” and clicked him offfff.
(Maybe all those extra fffff’s are a Freudian ‘expression’; if so, they are correct.
Then a couple of mornings later, reading my Bible (and the page seemed whiter and the ink blacker), I said (or the Holy Spirit said) THIS is TRUTH. Can’t argue, don’t need to Fact Check, just absorb It, the Word of God!
If there is a conflict, the problem is me - - not God.
And I summarized: “If it is not in the Bible, they are lying to me!”
Chuck needs to look up the “Streisand effect.”
Chuck Todd, D-(MSDNC).
Is there anyone at MSNBC or CNN that doesn’t hate Trump or Republicans?
What F*ck You Todd is saying is that they don't have any reporting to counter what Trump is saying about Hunter Biden, so they will just block the American people from seeing it. Censorship, pure and simple.
But then we already know that.
“The news anchor claimed Trump character “assassinated” Hunter Biden, saying it was particularly inappropriate because he was a private citizen. Todd noted the attack was “newsworthy” but that he could not air it in “good conscience.”
A little nepotism? A little corruption? Nobody’s perfect. Trump’s so cruel! WAAAAAH!
Chuck Todd will be seething with rage.
Tim Russert is rolling in his grave.
Where is Hunter B. these days?
Sorry, I thought he was at Fox news. now I see MSNBC and it makes more sense that they allowed him to do this.
Normally you don’t edit a president’s speech, regardless of whether you like it or not.
Where is an Edward R. Murrow today to call out such bullshit?
I doubt it. Maybe a guy delivering donuts every other Friday.
Sawed off Chuck Todd is a little douche nozzle.
