Awkward: Rudy Giuliani Opens MTP Interview by Calling Chuck Todd ‘Todd’… Then ‘Chris’

Cable news interviews routinely produce foot-in-mouth moments for presidential attorney Rudy Giuliani, and his Sunday Meet the Press appearance was no exception.

Just moments after being welcomed to the show by MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, Giuliani called him by his last name.

“It’s nice to be with you Todd,” he said.

Todd, aptly called by that name in news reports but not during on-camera interviews, began to respond as Giuliani noticed the blunder, piping up with, “Chris!”

“We’re not playing baseball,” the attorney joked.

Todd laughed, making light of the moment.

“We won’t do the last names, Giuliani,” he said.
