Chuck Todd Calls For Understanding Of Others, Is Met With Pure Sarcasm

Today, NBC’s Chuck Todd made this appeal on Twitter:

That there exists a fundamental divide between the political right and left in America is no surprise, nor is the fact that a number of Americans distrust the media that is designed to give them their news and information.

Still, plenty of people thought Todd’s suggestion was all wrong and he heard about it.

Some of the responses made clear, salient points that furthered discourse in a way that is pretty hard in 140 characters or less.

Other responses were sarcastic or biting:

It seems unlikely that the right will put themselves in the position of a “snowflake” or that the left will put themselves in the position of someone like Steve Bannon. If anything, platitudes suggesting such things seem only to make people angrier.
