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.

There are rules, but rules don't apply to Democrats.
That would make sense
I used to like Tim Russert. Didn’t always agree but respected him. Seemed balanced. This “little Chuckie Todd” is a goofy arrogant idiot who was handed the job like so many in the media not because of his abilities or what he knew.
Criminals should be treated viciously unlike democraps who kiss their ass.
Their viewers are too stupid to d3cide for themselves. I so love trump
Todd chuck doesn’t work for fox news.
Check out this video, it a CLASSIC!
Censors News Network?
“If it’s Sunday, It’s Meet The Priss!”
A parody... Trump did a parody. Todd liked when Adam Schiff did one... What's the difference? (Hint: a "D" by Schiff's naem)
FOX has more liberals than conservatives. AND FOXNews donated more to Hillary’s campaign than to Trumps.
The only reason they have conservatives is to pay the bills and keep the lights on.
