‘Morning Joe’ Tweaks Chuck Todd (a.k.a. ‘Chuckles’)

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” had a ‘when the mice are away’ feel to it this morning with Mika and Joe away and deadpan Willie Geist in the head chair.

At one point guests included NBC’s chief Washington D.C. correspondent  Norah O’Donnell and White House correspondent and “Daily Rundown” co-host Savannah Guthrie. They were discussing the possible government shutdown when NBC’s Chuck Todd came up in conversation.

O’Donnell was first to mention Todd: “Of course, you sit next to Chuckles all day and he’s our poll expert,” she told Savannah, who was outside the White House.

Savannah then reeled off poll numbers, sounding something like a certain someone with the initials CT.

Geist offered this segue to the next topic: “There you have it. Savannah Guthrie rattling off poll numbers in a Chuck Toddian fashion this morning. Very impressive.”

Savannah: “It’s the highest compliment.”
