Donald Trump Jr. destroyed NBC’s Chuck Todd earlier in the week after he conducted a softball interview with Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Sanders has been making the spotlight in recent weeks after it was revealed that his wife committed bank fraud.
Trump slammed Todd for providing an easy interview that refused to go after Sanders for the questionable behavior of his wife.
“Saddest reactions I’ve received are those folks who mistake calls for decency in our discourse as some sort of evidence of bias,” Todd tweeted. “Ponder that.”

“I would say the saddest evidence of bias was from you not asking Bernie about the FBI bank fraud investigation,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted. Ponder that!!!”

Conservative Tribune reports:
The interview Trump Jr. was referring to was a June 25 appearance on “Meet the Press.” For seven minutes, Sanders faced questions from Chuck Todd, yet never once was the investigation by the FBI into his wife Jane brought up.
Instead, as the transcript shows, Todd spent the entirety of the seven minutes pitching the socialist Vermont senator softball questions on health care which he somehow viewed as unfair. Not a single question about how his wife may have fraudulently obtained loans for Burlington College, a now bankrupted school she once ran.
And it isn’t just Jane Sanders that’s in trouble. According to Politico, a “letter to federal prosecutors in early 2016 alleged that Senator Sanders’ office had pressured the bank to approve the loan application submitted by Jane Sanders. ‘Improper pressure by a United States Senator is a serious ethical violation,’ the letter asserted.”
What do you think about Trump’s comments about Todd and his interview with Sanders?
