Retweeted by Chuck ToddFor months, many believed "extension" excuse would be how Trump would avoid disclosure. Instead. Sanders Sanders made it through his entire presidential campaign without having to disclose his personal finances.

Retweeted by Chuck Todd @TheJoyfulMan shoot first, get facts later and assume the worst of everyone! Thanks for making Twitter what it is @DickYoungsGhost @ABC @CNN @FoxNews don't forget Agronsky @chucktodd no question about it; many people have no recollection of that show or the culture of political debate that it created

Columbus #walmartmoms focus group of 10 has 3 Trump voters but 6 Portman voters. Most say doesnt matter what Portman thinks about Trump
Retweeted by Chuck ToddThis is more surprising re: Lieberman because of how close the Clintons and Lieberman were when at Yale together."What he meant by..." -- a phrase Trump surrogates have gotten used to using.This will likely be worth your time. Smart longtime GOP veteran strategist who does NOT carry the DC stench
#DataDownload: @chucktodd takes a deep dive into the latest NBC/WSJ poll numbers showing Clinton with a 9 point lead
Retweeted by Chuck ToddOn today’s #DataDownload, I take a closer look at the numbers in our NBC/WSJ poll and what is behind Clinton’s 9 pt advantage #MTP.@AlexvWESH & @meetthepress @chucktodd show off their mugs for #MTPMugSwap! #MTP
Retweeted by Chuck ToddThis week, our #MTPmugswap is with @WESH, the NBC affil where my mom watches #MTP! @AlexvWESH @WESH2Sunrise on #MTP: My interview with Clinton's running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine. Tune in.
It indeed was the old NBAonNBC theme song that #NBCSports is using. Here's the proof that the old NBAonNBC theme song for the start of TeamUSA hoops opener?Ya know, it's table tennis. And I think foosball is a better game to add to the winter games. Call it "table hockey" @MattMackowiak @briankoppelman @MarkHalperin @CountingCrows brian is a terrific interviewer. Not a bad filmmaker and show creator eitherThis year is so bizarre that the lead story in NYT today is: the GOP prez candidate endorses the Speaker and Sen. McCain. And that's news.

Quite a read endorsing Ryan is worthy of sending breaking news alerts? Seriously?Are we really supposed to be on pins and needles over whether the GOP's WH nominee plans to endorse the GOP's House leader? Seriously?A good call since Clinton hasn't held a formal press conference for 244 days according to @albamonica
Retweeted by Chuck Todd @BillyCorben @WIOD billy, the fact you didn't say anything to get the FCC involved is huge. That's discipline!really going to make governing in 2016 nearly impossible if 30-40 percent of electorate doesn't accept result was a dream team of Dunkers

Fox News poll indicates a big Dem bump. Clinton +9 in 3-way. Obama with highest job rating in 3+ years. @BretBaier @matthewjdowd so is Tin Cup equivalent for Trump, carrying Pennsylvania while losing every other swing state and the elex? @TomBevanRCP the "Secret state strategy" exchange actually made me laugh out loud to myself. It read like parodyAt time when US is newly concerned about terrorist attacks, we can't afford such unprincipled & out-of-touch leadership on world stage
Retweeted by Chuck ToddThis helps explain why this year is so terrible for Sen. John McCain
Retweeted by Chuck ToddIf you pass a guy in the senate subway today with what appears to be a self satisfied grin on his face, be sure to say hi to Sen. Cruz24 hours ago, we used the word "unraveling" to describe Trump and his campaign.

Retweeted by Chuck ToddTrump using same words as Ryan used when he held back Trump endorsement, "just not there yet". Coincidence? Or Trump's version of payback?From Clinton advisor, pre-Philly: 'The way we win is to make this a referendum on Trump...question is whether he's dumb enough to cooperate'
Retweeted by Chuck ToddYour morning diversion.
A Trump campaign source, in reax to this, tells me "it's all true" and "way worse than people realize."
