Every so often Chuck Todd gives the impression that he will be a good journalist but then backslides into a level of political establishment acquiescence.
Chuck Todd played a snippet of the video where Graham said the following.
If after having been briefed by our intelligence leaders, Donald Trump is still unsure as to what the Russians did, that would be incredibly unnerving to me because the evidence is overwhelming. If after the briefing, he is still unsure, that will shake me to my core about his judgement

Todd pointed out that Trump still says the Russia collusion is false.
"The president does now finally believe that the Russians stole the emails from the DNC and hacked -- and Clinton --. Lindsey Graham said. --and the Russians. Yea. Yea. But he believes that collusion is a hoax. All I can say is that it's not a hoax. The Russians stole the emails. They did interfere in our elections. We now know that Trump Junior met with the Russians in Trump Tower and that Bob Mueller is doing a great job. He's the right guy at the right time. He needs to be allowed to do his job. And whether or not there's collusion -- Bob Mueller will tell us. I've seen no evidence of collusion but the idea of Jeff Sessions being able to investigate the campaign he was on is unacceptable. Jeff Sessions did the right thing. It would be impossible for him to look into the Trump campaign activities with the Russians. Wh--Mr. Mueller had to be appointed as special counsel. But we need a second special counsel to look at the way the Department of Justice conducted themselves."
Graham continued the segment trying to justify his new found love for the president. It is sad that grown men are made to suck up to the empty suit we call the president.
Michael Wolff’s new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House made it clear the charlatans of the Trump administration are well aware he is not fit to serve, but for their ulterior motives they continue to lie to the American people.
