Chuck Todd went a little overboard when he asked a series of questions at the Obama-Netanyahu press conference.
Worse yet, the questions were not softballs for Obama to hit out of the park:
He even caught flak from the big guy (no, not Chris Christie):
The mockery of Todd’s performance gave rise to the #ChuckToddQuestions hashtag on Twitter, where numerous Obama supporters suggested Todd was motivated by Obama being black:
#ChuckToddQuestions Mr, President, why do you remain black when you know it disturbs so many people?

Mr. President, is it true that you fathered two black children? Aren’t you at least partially responsible? #ChuckToddQuestions

#ChuckToddQuestions Once you go Black can you actually go back, or is it you just don’t want to?

#ChuckToddQuestions Mr. President, why do you remain black during your second term? Me and my friends at Fox find this trend disturbing.

Mr. President, no one before you managed to bring peace to the middle east, but you’re black, so why can’t you??? #ChuckToddQuestions

In defense of Todd, he was just doing his job, which is to ask more questions than politicians want to answer.DONATE
