Watch Chuck Todd React to Uncomfortable Question About David Gregory

Chuck Todd took over Meet the Press after the rather… er… uncomfortable phasing-out of David Gregory. And so, when Marc Lamont Hill brought it up to Todd today on HuffPost Live, Todd wasn’t exactly eager to discuss it.

You may recall that back in August, Gregory left NBC rather unceremoniously, and did not get to return to the hosting chair one last time to say goodbye to viewers on-air.

Hill asked Todd today rather bluntly, “Were you surprised when David Gregory was let go?” Todd squirmed a bit and hesitated before saying, “This is a rough business. I’ll leave it at that.”

Todd said he’s bumped into Gregory a few times since the latter left NBC. Hill asked if it was awkward at all. Todd responded, “About as awkward as being asked questions about it.”
