Chuck Todd Goes After Hannity And Fox, Defends Wife In Fiery Interview
NBC host Chuck Todd on Friday slammed Fox News for not taking action against Sean Hannity after it was revealed the conservative opinion host was a client of President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen.
The remarks from the “Meet the Press” moderator came during a contentious back-and-forth interview with WABC-770 AM morning hosts Sid Rosenberg and Bernard McGuirk.
The duo challenged Todd on what they saw as a conflict of interest regarding his wife’s past consultant work with Democrats, including former Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.), Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who ran for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016.
Todd jabbed Hannity for going “heavy personal” on him when Hannity criticized him on the air.
“Sean and I, I thought, had a very nice, cordial, personal relationship,” Todd told Rosenberg and McGuirk. “It’s always bothered me he has gone personal at me. I have never gone personal at him. And he’s gone heavy personal at me in ways that I thought were unprofessional. That’s fine. That’s his decision to do that,” todd added, according to The Hill.
Todd was referring to a column titled “The Utter Hypocrisy of Chuck Todd” written on Hannity’s website, Hannity.com, that charged Todd with having a conflict of interest due to his wife’s consulting work.
