One day after John McCain, a known critic of Donald Trump, took a stab at the Republican president when he told members of the European political elite gathered at a military conference in Munich that the Trump administration “is in disarray“, further stoking concerns about the stability and order at the White House, the neo-conservative senator spoke to NBC’s Chuck Todd, who will air the full interview on Sunday morning.
The topic of discussion was, naturally, Trump’s tweet from last night, in which he said “The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!” and to which Todd responded at the time that “I would hope that our leaders would never believe that any American desires to make another American an enemy. Let’s dial it back.” It appears that by “dialing it back” he didn’t mean stop talking about the ongoing feud between the president and the media, as that was the topic of the following 90 second exchange, in which the failed presidential candidate once again slammed Trump, and told Todd that “if you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and in many times adversarial free press, and without it we’d lose so much of our individual liberties over time. That’s how dictators get started.”
