Chuck Todd is a halfwit clown. In fact, one of my all-time favorite tweets came from Soledad O’Brien after Chuck Todd said that, on “the optics” of Robert Mueller testifying in front of Congress, the Democrats were losing, as though the “optics” of that Mueller hearing was the most important issue of the day.
When you’ve lost Chuck Todd, it literally means nothing. https://t.co/wAPsnsqK3u— Soledad O'Brien (@soledadobrien) July 25, 2019
And here’s what Chuck Todd asked Trump last year.
Jonathan Swan from Axios gave a sneak peak from his Trump interview. When asked about speaking to Putin about the Russian Bounties on our troops, Trump said they didn’t discuss it and called it fake news…many people are saying… pic.twitter.com/HtDzJacQ7d— Mystery Solvent (@MysterySolvent) July 29, 2020
When asked if he's given any thought to his presidential library, Trump's first suggestion is that it that it might be at one of his properties pic.twitter.com/IDh0zJVzuH— Robert Maguire (@RobertMaguire_) June 23, 2019
That clip right there is everything you need to know about Chuck Todd, the host of Meet the Press, which sadly hasn’t had a decent host since the death of Tim Russert, though NBC could literally hire almost anyone because it’s such a prime hosting gig (Soledad O’Brien, for instance).
In any respect, Todd is being demoted over on MSNBC. I don’t watch cable news, but given Todd’s status, I suspect it is a humiliating blow for him to lose his 5 p.m. hour so that Nicolle Wallace — host of the 4 p.m. hour — can tack on an extra hour to her show leading into primetime. Why? Because ratings were actually declining in the 5 p.m. hour, which is not the trajectory one wants heading into the evening.
Meanwhile, Chuck Todd has been demoted to the 1 p.m. slot, which I believe is an hour worse than the the graveyard Gretchen Carlson was sent to on Fox News for daring to stand up to Roger Ailes. Ayman Mohyeldin — anchor of the 5 a.m. hour, meanwhile, will take over the 3 p.m. hour previously occupied by Ali Velshi, who now hosts a weekend show.
Anyway, here’s Nicolle Wallace calling Laura Ingraham a “chicken shit.”
Also, why does Chuck Todd always look like he just got a bad haircut from his mother?
Nicolle Wallace just called John Yoo, Laura Ingraham and Alan Dershowitz "chicken shit" for attacking Vindman and saying he may be guilty of "espionage" pic.twitter.com/QAMuHkXzjj— Andrew Lawrence (@ndrew_lawrence) October 29, 2019
