Chuck Todd mocks Nikki Haley for tweeting song lyric, forgets to check his own timeline

Thursday afternoon, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley posted lyrics to an Adele song on Twitter and Facebook. The full post reads:

Rumour Has It…..Adele

“People say crazy things,
Just ’cause I said it, don’t mean that I meant it,
Just ’cause you heard it,
Rumour has it………”

NBC reporter Chuck Todd responded with what appears to be a mocking question.

Yes, Chuck, she did. Is there a problem with tweeting song lyrics?

Hey, this might be a good time for a Chuck Todd flashback. On December 6, 2012, when asked about running for president in 2016, Congressman¬†Paul Ryan said that he had “decided not to decide.” Chuck Todd cleverly tweeted the following:

Sounds innocent enough, right? Here is the chorus from a song by Canadian rock band Rush:

You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that’s clear
I will choose freewill

Don’t worry, Chuck. We do have a sense of humor and we are laughing.

There you go, Chuck. You and the Governor have at least one thing in common.

Oh, and since you’re a fan of Rush, Chuck, here’s a totally random selection:

The hypocrites are slandering
The sacred halls of Truth
Ancient nobles showering
Their bitterness on youth
Can’t we find
The minds that made us strong
Can’t we learn
To feel what’s right and wrong

– Rush, Farewell to Kings

    What you own is your own kingdom
    What you do is your own glory
    What you love is your own power
    What you live is your own story
    In your head is the answer
    Let it guide you along
    Let your heart be the anchor
    And the beat of your own song

    You don’t get something for nothing
    You can’t have freedom for free
    You won’t get wise
    With the sleep still in your eyes
    No matter what your dreams might be

    RUSH – Something For Nothing – 2112

    F. Chuck is such a polarized faux journalist… actually he is a HACK in every sense of the word, and quite irrelevant, actually.

    Mr. Todd, don’t ever tweet another Rush lyric, again. Their music is too awesome for someone like you.
