NBC’s Chuck Todd is defending President Trump over his remark that members of MS-13 are “animals.”


Todd, during a radio appearance, said, “A lot of people have called violent anybody animals. Anybody who is a violent criminal, in my book, can get called an animal. They’re mulling, killing, and raping people. I don’t care where they are from.”

He also said that the media criticism of the comment may hurt the media: “This is where I think that my colleagues do us all harm.” (RELATED: Chuck Todd Makes Comey Squirm With This Question About Russia)
