Donald Trump Rips Into Chuck Todd On Air: ‘You Have To Tell The Truth!’

(By Nando Di Fino, Mediaite) - Donald Trump Day continues on Mediaite! Trump guested on 'The Daily Rundown' with Chuck Todd this morning, and immediately called out Todd for lying after his introduction. Todd said that Trump was joining the show to respond to a Marist poll that revealed voters in New Hampshire and Iowa are less likely to vote for the candidate Trump endorses. Trump then attacked Todd, saying that he didn’t call in to respond — producers had been calling him all morning (40 times, according to Trump) trying to get him on the show.

“I wish you would just sort of say it like it is,” Trump told Todd. “I think you’d really do better. Honestly. I think you’d get better ratings if you did that.” Trump later added that, “I’m doing MSNBC a favor by coming onto your show.”
