As you may remember, a couple of things happened last week. First, Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton a bigot. Repeatedly and without evidence. Then Clinton gave a widely-praised, fact-based speech using Trump and his supporters' own words to expose his connection to the racist "alt-right". And that's not even getting into the shameful ongoing smear about Hillary's health (btw, which candidate above looks healthier to you?)
In response, Chuck Todd tweeted this today:
And sure enough, he delivered on that premise.This morning on #MTP: My interviews with @davidplouffe and @Reince on #Decision2016 and whether the campaign has become a race to the bottom— Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) August 28, 2016
One must ask though, how can it be a "race to the bottom" if Trump has been there from the beginning? His very announcement speech accused the Mexican government of sending rapists into the United States! Since then, there have been dozens and dozens of new reprehensible lows from Donald with no end in sight. But when Hillary factually points this out it's a "race to the bottom"?
Get ready, folks...because this "both sides do it" nonsense is going to be the prime directive of the media until election day. They will keep on tipping the scale as best they can to keep it a "horse race" until the very end, because of course they will. Heck, even the AP is publishing highly-misleading stories, lying on social media about their findings and not correcting it.
It's going to be a rough and upsetting couple of months. But the media can only polish the Trumpturd so much, and we're going to fight back every single day to make certain he loses.
