‘Take it easy, Chuck’: Trump has to talk Chuck Todd off a ledge on heated ‘Meet the Press’

Chuck ToddNBC’s Chuck Todd did his best to paint Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump as a liar Sunday.

Trump appeared on “Meet The Press” Sunday where Todd accused Trump of “feeding the stereotype” about Muslims and insisted the celebrations by Muslims on 9/11 that Trump says he saw “never happened.”

As I have documented on BPR I personally witnessed such celebrations myself.

Still Todd persisted “This didn’t happen in New Jersey.”

“Chuck, it did happen in New Jersey. I have hundreds of people that agree with me,” Trump replied.

“You have a huge Muslim population over there. And that’s fine. But you have a huge Muslim population, between Patterson and different places and Jersey City, an unbelievable large population,” Trump continued. “If they’re going to be doing it at soccer games, if they’re going to be doing it all around the world, it was being done.”

The more Trump stood his ground the angrier Todd got while doing everything but calling Trump a liar.

“Take it easy, Chuck. Just play cool,” Trump said. “This is people in this country that love our country that saw this, by the hundreds they’re calling, and they’re tweeting. And there’s a lot of people. In Sarasota, people were telling me yesterday they used to live in New Jersey. They remember it vividly.”
