Transcript via NBC’s Meet The Press:

CHUCK TODD:

Let me ask you about the tone of the president’s tweets. Many Republicans in the Senate condemned the personal attack on Mika Brzezinski and attacking on her looks. You have Lindsey Graham saying it was “beneath the office.” Ben Sasse, “This isn’t normal.” Jeff Flake, “Beneath the dignity of the presidency.” Susan Collins begging, “This has to stop.” Lisa Murkowski begging, “This has to stop.” Does his behavior bother you?

SECY. TOM PRICE:

Well, what I’m concentrated on is the job that he’s given me. And that is to make certain that we fulfill the mission of the Department of Health and Human Services, which is to improve the health, safety, and well-being of the American people. And there are a whole array of activities that we’re undertaking. One of them is this piece of legislation that’s in the Senate right now. But my job is consumed by making certain that we fulfill the mission at the department.

CHUCK TODD:

I’m just asking you as a father. If your son tweeted about a woman like that, what would you say to him?

SECY. TOM PRICE:

Chuck, you know, this is really remarkable. You’ve got incredible challenges across this nation, incredible challenges around the world. The challenge that I’ve been given is to address the health care issues. And your program, a program with the incredible history of Meet the Press, and that’s what you want to talk about?

CHUCK TODD:

I don’t.

SECY. TOM PRICE:

Let me suggest to you that the American people want to talk about the challenges.

CHUCK TODD:

Mr. Secretary, I don’t. Mr. Secretary, with all due respect, you’re blaming me for what the president of the United States has spent his entire week focused on?

SECY. TOM PRICE:

No. Listen to me, with all due respect. The American people are concerned about a health care system that is not providing choices, where premiums are going up, where insurance companies are vacating markets all across this land. And that’s what they want us to concentrate on. And that’s what they want us to fix. And that’s what I and the president are working on.

Price wouldn’t say that Trump’s behavior bothered him because it doesn’t bother him in the least. Chuck Todd asked Price the perfect question. As a father, how would you react to this if it was your son treating a woman this way? Price’s answer was to try to attack Chuck Todd. The HHS Secretary would not answer the question even on a human level.

The topper came when Price tried to blame Todd for Trump’s tweets.

Chuck Todd through his line of questioning exposed the level of gutless cowardice that is required for a person to work in the Trump administration. Tom Price wouldn’t answer the question, which says all that every American needs to know about the lack of decency and character of this administration.
