Chuck Todd proved himself, a gutless wonder during his interviews with both President Trump on Friday and Sunday during his interview with Vice President Mike Pence on NBC Meet the Press.

The free press is dying, the bedrock of our democracy. This lawless Trump Administration is abusing children openly in contempt of the 1997 Flores settlement that requires the federal government to do two things: to place children with a close relative or family friend “without unnecessary delay,” rather than keeping them in custody; and to keep immigrant children who are in custody in the “least restrictive conditions” possible.
Instead, Children as young as two years old are being held in cages with concrete floors are not being provided blankets, soap, toothbrushes, some are being fed rotten food, many are reportedly are going unchanged and are sitting in feces.
Chuck Todd’s questioning of both Trump and Pence amounted to the acceptance of outright lies. Both men deserve to be indicted for child abuse. The responsibility of any journalist is when they confuse, avoid or outright lie about the facts is too call them on their lies to their faces.
The Trump Administration has all the money it needs to remedy the suffering of these children. They violate the Flores settlement and in open contempt of the agreement. There are no ifs, and's or buts about their criminal abuse of children.
These children are being abused and being held hostage on the direct orders of President Trump and his minions.
While gutless Chuck Todd debates the semantics of the term concentration camp, the conditions these children and families are held in will be known as death camps. The Democrats don’t want to authorize more and bigger detention centers for fear that they will become both concentration and death camps. Chuck Todd and many journalists know this and still question Trump and his sycophants as if they are not violating the law.
Calling these concentration camps is not the big scandal; the fact that they are becoming death camps is. An estimated 6,000 refugees are now under quarantine for mumps, measles, and other contagious diseases without adequate medical care.
President Trump and Vice President Pence are fascists, racists, and only pretend to be Christians. No person of faith would hold children hostages, lie, and then blame Obama and the Democrats.
Also, Trump, Pence, McConnell and the silent GOP in Washington are facilitating the starvation of 12 million Yemeni men, women, and children by re-arming the Saudi Regime with more weapons because it means $400 billion in arms sales demonstrates their worship of money instead of their god will destroy our Republic.
They are war criminals, and guilty of crimes against humanity and must eventually stand trial for their attempts and participation of ethnic cleansing.
If journalists like Chuck Todd, George Stephanopoulos, Andrea Mitchell, Jake Tapper continue to value their access to these monsters more than exposing their lies and criminal behavior, how are we ever going to make America great again?
What we should all be worried about is this lawless President and his evil henchmen turning their racism into genocide not just in Yemen, but here in the United States.
Right now the only person in Congress who understands the tremendous danger our country faces is a 29 Congresswoman from New York, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who recognizes detention centers can become concentration camps, and then morph into becoming death camps. This scion of truth is doing everything she can to speak out in the tradition of Senator Robert Kennedy. Those who criticize her, choose to ignore her warnings, risk the destruction of our way of life.
