A historic and deadly winter storm has ravaged the state of Texas over the past few days, leaving millions without power and even taking the lives of some residents.
Yet to MSNBC host Chuck Todd, there is an “upside” to the horrible event. One sentence after explaining that the storm has “killed at least 28 people across the southeast,” Todd said there is one consequence for Texans he is apparently happy about.
“The only upside here is I assume the cold weather motivates people to wear a mask, because it’s one extra layer on your face,” he said.
Even the reporter on the scene in Dallas seemed taken aback by Todd’s peculiar comment. That’s not surprising if you consider how unsympathetic this comment was.
It’s hard to tell whether this was supposed to be a joke
