Chuck Todd is deliriously spouting incoherent babble after the Democrat won the Alabama senate election. He’s beside himself at the fluke win for Doug Jones. He forgets to mention that Jones only won the seat by 2 points, and he’s likely to lose it again in 2 years.
Appearing on NBC’s Today Wednesday morning to react to Democrat Doug Jones winning the Alabama special election for Senate, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd spun that the defeat of scandal-plagued Republican Roy Moore was not just a “one-off” and even bizarrely claimed that Democratic losses earlier in the year were a sign of building political momentum on the left.
Co-host Savannah Guthrie began the discussion by wondering: “Chuck, a Democrat wins the Senate in Alabama, you haven’t said that in two decades. How did he do it?” In his rambling reply, Todd argued:
Watch the video:
CHUCK TODD: “He did it on the backs of a bunch of things. Number one, you had to have what happened, which was Republican disunity. That helped. He had massive Democratic enthusiasm. In many ways, we saw the same thing in Alabama that we saw in Virginia, where the blue areas just turned out in higher numbers than the red areas.”
… Todd concluded: “If Trump can’t get a 50% job approval in Alabama, if he can’t carry over his candidate in Alabama, every Republican in the country this morning needs to wake up and fear for their political lives.”
Somebody please pass Chuck his meds. He’s clearly not living in the real world. Alabama is not likely to stay blue for very long.
