Chuck Todd facing backlash for highlighting letter mocking Christian Trump supporters

Social media is firing back at MSNBC’s Chuck Todd after he highlighted a letter comparing Bible-believing people and supporters of President Trump to believers of “fairy tales.” Todd read from the letter:

Why to good people support Trump? It’s because people have been trained from childhood to believe in fairy tales….This set their minds up to accept things that make them feel good…The more fairy tales and lies he tells the better they feel…Show me a person who believes in Noah’s ark and I will show you a Trump voter.”

In an interview Sunday morning with the editors of the Washington Post and New York Times, the "Meet the Press" host called the letter a “fascinating attempt at trying to explain why some people support President Trump.”

The Washington Examiner wrote, “Todd offered a good reminder that many in the press view people of faith as regressive knuckle-draggers.”

The Blaze tweeted, “If it’s Sunday, it’s contempt for religious people.”
