NBC Reporter Accuses Trump Of Exploiting Terminally Ill Infant Charlie Gard [VIDEO]

NBC’s Matt Bradley accused Donald Trump Monday of using Charlie Gard’s parents’ grief in order to further his own political agenda.

Trump tweeted earlier that day that he would be “delighted” to help Charlie Gard, a U.K. infant who has been sentenced to die by the British courts.

Gard has a mitochondrial disease that has rendered him critically ill, and his parents wish to bring him to the United States for experimental treatment. However, British courts have declined the parents’ request to move their child and have granted doctors the right to end Gard’s life-sustaining treatment at any time.

Bradley, an NBC reporter out of London, said that depending on how you feel about Trump, you may view his tweet one of two ways.

The more charitable option, he explained, is that the president genuinely wants to help Gard.

“Now, depending on how you see this, Hallie, depending really on your impressions of Mr. Trump beforehand, you could either decide that this is the president selflessly stepping in to help grieving parents who are experiencing a terrible, wrenching pain and a baby who has a very rare, very difficult to treat illness,” he offered.

However, Bradley also suggested that their may be a more sinister motive to Trump’s tweet.

“Or,” he continued, “You could decide that this was the president trying to use the grief of two parents and a small baby for political gain and weighing into a situation that was very much a national and European issue and not one we would expect anything from an American politician.”

“But again,” Bradley said, “it all depends on how you look at it.”

    Or Matt, it all depends on how we look at you.

    Do we just assume that because you are part of the lying MSM that you would even suggest “sinister” purposes behind Trump’s words?

    Or do we just assume because we think you are a disgusting human being that you would even suggest such purposes?

    Guess it just depends on how we look at it.

    This new reporter is a disgusting scum bag to even suggest Trump was not sincere about what he said. They are trying to turn anything Trump does as insincere. He needs to apology and be ashamed. No wonder the whole world is laughing as us us because af ass holes like this. GOD bless our President Trump

    DO THE MEDIA PEOPLE LOOK FOR ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING TO DOWN THE TRUMPS! GADS!!! Donald Trump has helped many people in the past when he could and this was before he decided to run for President. When did any of the media reporters ever help anyone???

    Unlike those who perceive President Trump to be devoid of natural human emotion, I prefer to feel that he would even send his personal airplane to pick up the Gard family. This too would probably need a clearance from the British head of state but the condeming drs would be out of the picture. Perhaps American doctors cannot save the life of this baby either but it wouldn’t hurt to try rather than the comdenation to die that he has now. Give the troubled parents a chance to try since they have money for a surgeon–who could also waive his/her fee.

      Bradley is one of the many reporters that have Trump on Twitter. Nothing but negative from these liberal”push my agenda” reporters. There seems to be a missing link between their ears to their mouths .

    wow! If this was just plain Donald Trump he would be praised or we wouldn’t hear anything about it. But, since he’s the President he’s just horrible…SMH!! Shame on the media!!

    Trump is extending a olive branch when everyone else has not or has given up. The parents want to do anything possible, justifiably so, but no means to do so. The President does have the means and not even taxpayers money. If he is willing that speaks volumes in my book. I already know he is the best President ever. This reporter to suggest that just tells me he is blind, heartless, and quick to judge. COME ON PEOPLE, GIVE THE PRESIDENT A CHANCE ALREADY! Even when he does something good people still see the worst. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL WORLD of CRAZY PEOPLE!

    If the child is alllowed leave for the US, I’msure Trump would send a plane. If there is a chance with experimental treatment, why can’t the child have it? Socialize medicine? Might not be so great. Let the US try to save this baby!

    I am not a mind reader, I fail that class which, judging by his comment, Bratt Bradley excelled. Some time ago I read a tale and goes like this: ”
    “A very poor woman called a Christian radio station asking for help. A bad, evil man who was listening to this radio program decided to make something out of it…. He got her address, called his secretary and ordered her to buy food and take to the woman with the following instruction, “when the woman asks who sent the food, tell her that it’s from the devil.”
    When she arrived, the woman was so happy and she started putting the food inside. The Secretary asked her,” don’t you want to know who sent the food”?? The woman answered. ”NO, it doesn’t matter, because when GOD orders, even the devil obeys.” Even if President Trump intention is to make himself look good, WHAT DIFFERENCE does that make if by lending a helping hand, that baby has a chance to live. Bradley is an absolute idiot, to whom I am wholeheartedly wishing for him to go through with exactly the same situation that that couple in the UK is going through, and I would love to hear if he would care to know with what intention it will be that the help is being offered. Narrow, stupid, obtuse minded Bradley.

    Naturally someone would come up with an angle to discredit Trumps kind actions.

    OMG for politically immature people who think nothing but politics in President Trump’s humane gesture.Remember this guy is a father, a grandfather and a human being himself with compassion and feelings. Shame on the media people who have nothing else to brag about except to impress that they have the intelligence to judge and condemn people’s (leaders’) actions based on their own immaturity and their supporters’ stupidity.They can’t even show any humane thread of sympathy with the parents’ anguish and pain, and neither an iota of appreciation for someone’s good deed, which they cannot do because their hearts are filled with distrust.Anyway, Thank you, President Trump.
