White House Soup of the Day

It only sounds fancy. That’s what MSNBC “Daily Rundown” Co-host Chuck Todd deduced today while announcing Ribollita, the White House Soup of the Day. “It’s not the fanciest of soups, but it sounds fancy,” he explained.

Co-host Savannah Guthrie had an entirely different reaction to the soup, saying that at least she was finally able to say it. “On the plus side, I think I pronounced it correctly. I’ve only hand 20 chances,” she said.

Todd pointed out the weirdness of hearing Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler blasting in the background of the White House Soup of the Day. “When I think of it, I think of Stephen Tyler,” Todd deadpanned.

The soup generally takes three days to prepare. Ribollita, a Tuscan soup made of vegetables and bread, means “reboiled.”
