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
