Chuck Todd: ‘Al Roker Can Stuff It’

MSNBC’s Savannah Guthrie appeared on “The Daily Rundown” this morning alongside co-host Chuck Todd and told viewers she was moving on. The network officially announced the news Monday morning.

Todd’s reaction? Territorial. He even took a shot at NBC “Today” Show weatherman Al Roker, saying, “Al Roker can stuff it right now. We’ve got you for another month.” Roker, whose ears were apparently burning all the way from Mississippi, later appeared on the show in his weatherman flood gear. He was up to his waist in water.

After Roker reported on the flooding, Todd expressed rage toward the weatherman. “Alright Roker, I’ve got issues with you,” he said. Roker fired back twice, “What, because I’m taking Savannah from you? What, because I’m taking Savannah from you?”

Todd: “Let’s just say you’re just Roker to me now, Roker.”

Roker blamed facial hair discrepancies for Savannah’s departure. “Here’s the thing, Savannah likes her men clean shaven,” Roker said, belting out big, continuous laughter.
