‘The Russian Government Uses That Phrase’: Chuck Todd Calls Out Trump Adviser For Complaining About ‘Fake News’

NBC host Chuck Todd called out Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro on Sunday after he attacked The Washington Post and called them “fake news.”

Todd told Navarro during an interview on Meet the Press that “fake news” is a phrase often used by the corrupt Russian government.

Navarro was complaining about a Washington Post report which suggested John Kelly’s role in the White House had been diminished.

Navarro called Kelly a “great man” who “has the president’s ear.”

“That’s all I know, that’s all I see,” the trade adviser opined. “And when you read stuff in The Washington Post, frankly, that’s fake news most of the time.”

“I think that expression is a pretty unfair thing to say about a major news organization,” Todd replied. “That’s a cheap shot.”

“Mr. Todd, that is not a cheap shot,” Navarro fired back. “Because if you look at the newspapers that I read every day across the spectrum, The Washington Post, in my judgment, tends to attack the president more than any other newspaper in its news stories.”

“You can do anything you want in your editorials, sir, but you cannot do that in your news stories,” he added.

Todd then cut him off and said, “The term ‘fake news’ is not exactly a way to hold up the First Amendment, especially when the Russian government, just this morning, is using that phrase.”
