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.

He better be careful. Fox got rid of their gay guy.
The Mainstream Media, in the pocket of the Democrat Party for the last 40+ years..that is why Obama and his Administration were able to get away with SO much for 8 years, NO ONE reported a damn thing they did
What an idiot.
Why is Fox News allowing him to do this?
Maybe Chuckie needs a group of trained Crisis Counselors to help him and his viewer to work through the trauma. The poor dears. Really tears ya up inside, don’t it?
I must have missed F. Chuck’s rant. But then again, I always do.
God forbid that Sleepy might actually employ some objective journalism. Oh, wait, it’s MSNBC. The Art Bell Show of network news ‘reporting’.
or rather, there are parts of it we’re not going to show you,”
Well, at least now they are admitting to not showing you...........
MSDNC probably on the receiving end of those billions as well.
I might find his blatant, partisan censorship objectionable if he had an audience.
Chuck Turd is such a woosy.
MSNBC, not FOX.
When WILL they chuck Todd?
Aha! So John Gage is the one who watches MSNBC.
They don’t have to air it.
and twitter and facebook can ban it.
but MANY have already saved it and it will go viral no matter what the msm does and they HATE THAT.
We might have won Vietnam if we had social media back then
“vicious” = “the truth”
Trump’s words are forbidden fruit.
Its a big f**kin deal!
If Chuck Todd wants to see “vicious attacks”...he should look at a good portion of the replies to any and all of President Trump’s tweets.
The truth to a journalist is like what boiling garlic flavored holy water sprayed out of firehouse at high noon is to a vampire.
