Republican Governor Rips News Anchor For Downplaying Economic Issues: 'You're in a Bubble, Man'

Chuck Todd, host of NBC News' "Meet the Press," was brought back to reality when he kept asking why more Americans aren't more worried about threats to democracy?

During a discussion with Republican New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu, Todd asked him how he could support an "election denialist."

When asked the question, Sununu quickly pointed out just how out of touch Todd is.

"Let me tell you, you're in a bubble, man. I love you, Chuck, but you are in a bubble if you think anybody is talking about what happened in 2020, or talking about Mar-a-Lago and all that," Sununu said to Todd.

"I know the press loves to talk about it," the governor noted, before saying, "People are talking about what is happening in their pocketbooks every single day when they have to buy groceries or fill up gas."

Todd was not on board.

"You think this should be prioritized over election denialism?" he asked.

"Of course. Oh, my gosh, Chuck, this is hitting people," Sununu shot back. "They're having trouble paying their mortgage. They're having trouble making car payments because of bad policies out of Washington. Should they be? Look, the beauty of the American system is every voter has the right and almost the responsibility to be selfish with their vote — to vote in terms of what is best for their family, to have better choice for schools, better economic opportunity."

After Todd pushed back more, Sununu did admit election security is a serious issue, but maintained it is not going to decide elections.

"When you're talking about what folks are going to be voting on this November — what the top priority issues are — it's inflation, the economy, getting those things under control," he said.
