[See NewsBusters for more.] In the past, Chuck Todd has railed against hyperbole, misinformation and GOP “alternative facts.” But on Sunday, he seemed quite enamored with the apocalyptic sentiment that America “will not survive” a Donald Trump reelection. NAACP president and CEO Derrick Johnson appeared on the YouTube-only portion of Meet the Press. He warned, “This nation, not only African-American community, we will not survive if there is a continuation of this administration.” Rather than commit the act of journalism and challenge his guest Todd marveled, “Strong words, President Johnson. Those are very strong words. ‘We will not survive if there’s another term.’” When the segment ended, Todd offered kudos for the end-of-America sentiment: “Derrick Johnson, president of the NAACP. Really appreciate you coming on…. We all appreciate that you didn’t hold back.”
