Instead of merely passing along some well-wishes on Good Friday, the NBC News reporter and “Meet the Press” moderator thought it would be the perfect time for a little Chuck-splaining during these complex and controversial times:
I’m a bit hokey when it comes to “Good Friday.” I don’t mean disrespect to the religious aspect of the day, but I love the idea of reminding folks that any day can become “good,” all it takes is a little selflessness on our own part. Works EVERY time.

This has to be an early April Fools thing, amirite?
You can't possibly be this dim. Or can you?

I hate to break it to you, but some shower thoughts are best left in the shower.

What would everybody do without the mainstream media’s hot takes?
