Chuck Todd: ‘Anti-Intellectualism’ Has Taken Over the GOP

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Chuck Todd, the moderator of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” quipped that “anti-intellectualism” had taken over the Republican Party.

According to Todd, it has come in the form of party nominee Donald Trump and will “hurt the party down the road.”

“Anti-intellectualism,” Todd said, “that’s what’s taken over the party. It’s almost this, you know, there’s almost this disdain with some in Trump world that are like, ‘Yeah OK, so the college educated crowd isn’t for it. There’s almost a disdain that they’re embracing about this. But it is hurting the party. It’s going to hurt the party down the road.”
