MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd trended nationwide on Twitter on Tuesday following an interview with former acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.
Mulvaney, the former South Carolina GOP congressman, who also served as director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), is currently serving as President Donald Trump’s “special envoy” for Northern Ireland.
Frustrated viewers blasted the interview and called upon MSNBC to fire the “Meet the Press” host. Here’s some of what people were saying.

I’ve always said that Chuck Todd is a trashy vessel that the GOP uses to spread their propaganda on MSNBC with no push back or fact checking. It’s an hour of Fox on another network.

Chuck Todd simply has to go. He was absolutely giddy today allowing Mick Mulvaney to spew propaganda and lies.
Also, seems like Chuck is taking over Katy Tur's slot. It's beyond revolting to watch him talk over and interrupt Katy.
What's MSNBC's reasoning for this? pic.twitter.com/eRtjf61TZu

Just when I was thought Chuck Todd couldn't get any worse, he said Mitch Mulvaney would be on after the break. Do better @MSNBC, I don't watch this network so that I can hear people explain & defend the other side. That's only works when the other side isn't the Nazi party.

Hey, @MSNBC? Throw out Chuck Todd and hire Shep Smith.

Why the FUCK is Chuck Todd talking to Mick Mulvaney right now? Mulvaney is STILL defending Trump even though Trump hosed him…. I DON'T UNDERSTAND THESE PEOPLE

Hey, @MSNBC I love watching Nicolle Wallace and Ari Melber. Can you please do something about Chuck Todd?

Which “both sides” journalist do you find most insufferable? I nominate Chuck Todd.

Chuck Todd interviewing Mulvaney . . .
Todd – doesn’t look like you’re doing a great job look at our curve and the EU’s curve
Mulvaney – do we have enough healthcare capacity?
Todd – let’s move on . . .
No mention of 120k dead Americans. Chuck Todd is really, really terrible.

Chuck Todd let Mick Mulvaney get away with pushing this poor virus response off on the states.
There was no federal leadership at all. #MSNBC

Unless it is due to an announcement that Chuck Todd has been fired, and has been replaced by one of the half dozen women @MSNBC who are superior to him in every way — nothing good ever comes from Chuck Todd trending.
