Damn GOOD thread -> Jeryl Bier takes Chuck Todd APART for claiming Trump ONLY questions African-American’s intelligence

Chuck Todd claimed that Trump always seems to question the intelligence of African-Americans. Clearly, Chuck hasn’t been paying attention if he really believes that, and Jeryl Bier’s thread is an exceptional read that takes Chuck’s claim apart piece by piece.

1/ I sometimes get irritated when I have to “defend” @realDonaldTrump because I am appalled that he is our president and he earns much of the criticism he gets. But…

Fair.

2/ This statement by @chucktodd below is just so without foundation it’s amazing he can say it with a straight face: “It’s always with an African-American when he questions intelligence.”https://t.co/IfpUTlh57w pic.twitter.com/cKGxq7FiYW

Nothing surprises us anymore when it comes to the media and their reactions to and reporting on Trump. In fact, if they weren’t saying something completely outlandish we’d probably get totally confused.

3/ Yes, Obama has insulted Obama, Maxine Waters, Don Lemon, LeBron James and other blacks as “dumb” or “low IQ”. But he has done the same to:
Robert De Niro
Jennifer Rubin
Rick Perry
Jeb Bush
Jon Stewart
Chris Matthews
James Comey
Kim Strassel
Cheri Jacobus
Graydon Carter

We’re guessing he meant Trump, but it’s also possible Obama said some of these people were dumb and we didn’t see it. Oh, and either way his point is valid, all of the people he listed here are white.

But wait, there’s more!

4/ More people Trump has called dumb:
Stuart Stevens
Glenn Beck
Joe McQuaid
Rick Wilson
Chris Stirewalt
Marc Thiessen [who Trump called “Marc Threaten”
Tim O’Brien
Jonah Goldberg
Chuck Hagel
Rosie O’Donnell
Gail Collins
McKay Coppins
Ben Smith

Always African-Americans, eh Chuck?

5/ Simple Twitter searches is all it takes to find things like this.https://t.co/cp4KF5LOe1https://t.co/Lmfo1L6TM7

But that would require actual investigating and reporting, man.

That’s no fun.

6/ I finally just stopped listing… there are more. This is not a nitpick. @chucktodd‘s statement was wildly inaccurate. If demonstrably ridiculous statements like this are allowed to stand, not only does it hurt journalism, it hurts race relations.

— Jeryl Bier (@JerylBier) August 6, 2018

What he said.

7/ @realDonaldTrump can be a rude, crude, name-caller; he is petty and juvenile in his responses and often resorts to stereotypes. But there’s no getting around @chucktodd‘s false statement. It should not be allowed to stand just because it fits the narrative.

And considering Jeryl obviously doesn’t have a whole lot of love for Trump this thread should have an impact on Chuck and anyone out there who thinks Trump only picks on one race of people.

P.S. Even @chucktodd himself:https://t.co/eB882lPmjS

HA!

And last time we checked, Chuck wasn’t an African-American.

We COULD be wrong though …
