Morning Blooper: ‘Hi Samantha!’

By Betsy Rothstein Comment

This morning MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown” reported on a Supreme Court challenge to President Obama‘s health care law. Co-Host Savannah Guthrie introduced NBC’s Justice Correspondent Pete Williams to discuss the subject.

Savannah: “Pete, Good morning!”

Pete: “Hi Samantha!” [Pause followed by laugh, laugh, laugh.] “That’ll go on a blooper roll. I have to stop calling you that in the hallway.”

C0-host Chuck Todd closed the segment with a dose of revenge: “Alright, Pete Williams at the Supreme Court for us this this morning. Peter, or whatever we’ll call you later today. Alright, Paul Williams at the Supreme Court.”
