Poor NBC lapdog Chuck Todd. One week he’s babbling about Obama nourishing him, the next he gets bitch-slapped.
NBC’s Chuck Todd on Thursday night found a new way to compliment Barack Obama. Politicking host Larry King asked the Meet the Press anchor if he “liked” the President. Todd quickly responded “yes” and added, “I mean, he’s very easy to talk to…You sit there and have these off-the-record sessions with him.” The journalist enthused, “They’re just very nourishing conversations.”
Nourishing? Earlier in November, the anchor defended the President’s famous contention that “bitter Americans” “cling” to guns and religion. Todd mused that these attacks are simply Obama “observing the way an anthropologist would observe a society.”
Maybe he can nourish himself on this.
The commander in chief doesn’t think much of the man who labeled him “The Stranger.”
Shopping at a Washington, DC, bookstore Saturday, President Obama spotted a copy of “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd’s new book about his presidency.
“Oh, Chuck Todd!” Obama exclaimed. “Let’s see what Chuck has to say here!”
“How is he writing a book already? asked his 16-year-old daughter, Malia. “Sad.”
“He’s just sad,” the president joked in response.
Obama’s off-the-cuff pan was no surprise, considering what Todd thinks of the president.
The book, titled “The Stranger,” blasts Obama as a flip-flopping policymaker whose detached temperament has prevented him from implementing his ideas.
