The meaning of "RACE".
Chuck Todd didn't know that DONALD TRUMP, the GOP presumptive presidential candidate and Judge Gonzalo Curiel, the judge presiding over the TRUMP UNIVERSITY lawsuit, were of the same RACE, "Caucasian".
Yet, he, Chuck Todd, kept pushing Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, Senate majority leader, to say that TRUMP's comments about the judge, who was of Hispanic heritage, were RACIAL.
TRUMP has been skeptical about the judge's decision, and he was right in assuming that the judge's background would influence his decision making process. There was no RACISM implied here on the part of TRUMP, for he was stating a matter of fact that owing to what he, TRUMP, has said about Mexican criminals in his campaign speeches could make the judge to go against him (TRUMP) in the case.
Todd's interview with the Senate leader on TV's "Meet The Press" was downright stupid. Somebody should explain the word "RACE" to Chuck Todd. He has always thought that making awful remarks against TRUMP was an elitist thing to do, as many of his colleagues in the media also felt likewise.
Chuck Todd, what kind of a name is that? Good grief.
