Well, look who went and found his principles. It’s TV’s Chuck Todd, everyone!
The NBC reporter, who has spent the entire year so far slamming President Donald Trump and politicizing every detail of his administration, wants to have a “kumbaya” moment all of the sudden. It might have something to do with a mass shooting that doesn’t fit his agenda or talking points.
Yesterday, James T. Hodgkinson, a vocal Bernie Sanders supporter and militant progressive, opened fire on Republican members of Congress at a park. We all know what the media response would have been had the shooter been a Tea Partier taking aim at Nancy Pelosi. Faced with yet another left-wing loon with a gun, Todd took to Twitter to say that perhaps now was not the best time to assign blame and politicize.
Here is his tweet.
Hope most folks realize we have a toxic political culture and that attempting to exploit today for political gain will only poison us more

Sorry, Chuck. No changing the rules in the middle of the game.
Todd was rightfully roasted for the tweet, as everyone and their dog piled on for his convenient moral stand.
You are the poison that is spreading hate and false accusations!
