MSNBC’s Chuck Todd gets one of America’s most basic founding principles so wrong it’s scary

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd showed a breathtaking display of ignorance with a clueless assertion about a basic principle of America’s founding.

Todd criticized Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore during “Meet the Press” on Wednesday, claiming the Alabama candidate “doesn’t appear to believe in the Constitution as it’s written” because he said our rights come from God.

The MSNBC host unbelievably told his viewers that “the phrase ‘Christian conservative’ doesn’t even begin to describe” Moore, who “could very well be your next U.S. Senator.”

“If you don’t understand just how freaked out some folks in the GOP and the White House are about what that means, then you don’t know Roy Moore,” Todd continued as he proceeded to completely miss the boat on the Founding Fathers’ intentions. “First off, he doesn’t appear to believe in the Constitution as it’s written.”

“Our governments don’t come from government,” Moore said in a video clip that was played in the segment. “They don’t come from the Bill of Rights. They come from Almighty God.”

Todd slammed Moore’s “very fundamentalist views.”

“That’s just a taste of what are very fundamentalist views that have gotten him removed from office twice as Alabama chief justice,” he said.

The Washington Free Beacon’s Alex Griswold tore into Todd’s inane claim as he noted in a series of tweets, “That was precisely the view of the Founders.”

Perhaps Todd needs a refresher on American history, though it’s probable he – like so many in the school system today – was never taught an accurate version of America’s founding principles.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,” the Declaration of Independence states. “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

Todd’s ignorance and the “fundamentalist views” held by Moore made for plenty of reaction on Twitter.
