This NBC host will need an ice bath after…
Recently Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino called out NBC News’ Chuck Todd over his heated debate with Sen. Ron Johnson.
“Chuck Todd is a disgrace to humankind. How this guy pretends still to be a journalist to this day is still an embarrassment,” Bongino told “Fox & Friends,” taking issue with Todd accusing Johnson of pushing a “Fox News conspiracy” on the show.
Johnson appeared on “Meet the Press” and entered a heated discussion over the House Democrats impeachment efforts with Todd and various abuse of the intelligence community. When asked if he thought Russia interfered in the 2016 election, the GOP senator said there were still unanswered questions.
Johnson urged Todd to ask former CIA Director John Brennan, who later appeared on the show, for text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, anti-Trump FBI employees.
“I have no idea why we’re going here,” Todd interjected, shouting at Johnson to stop “trying to make Donald Trump feel better” and answer his question.
Todd wanted Johnson to respond to a Wall Street Journal report where the senator said he “winced” at the idea that Trump would tie Ukrainian military aid to a Bidens investigation.
Bongino, a Fox News contributor, said Johnson should have “walked off” the set and “no credible Republican should appear on that show again.” He said Johnson is owed an apology from Todd.
