‘It’s because you don’t stop talking, Chuck’: Priebus gets tired of being interrupted by ‘confused’ Todd

White House chief of staff Reince Priebus went toe to toe with Chuck Todd on Sunday when he appeared on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”

Todd grilled Priebus on President Trump’s travel ban affecting several majority Muslim nations but when Priebus attempted to answer the host interrupted him again and again.

Todd asked Priebus if the order is causing any undue stress for green card holders and if so if that makes the order unconstitutional.

“It’s not affecting green card holders,” Priebus said.

“You keep saying … You said it does,” Todd interrupted.

“If you would just slow down for a second and listen I could answer your question,” Priebus said.

“I understand that, but you’ve twice confused me so I’m trying to understand the clarity,” Todd, again, interrupted.

“It’s because you don’t stop talking, Chuck. I love you, but let me answer the question,” Priebus fired back. “If you’re a person — this isn’t in regard to the executive order, the executive order doesn’t affect green card holders moving forward. I said that.”

The interview came one week after Todd squared off in a contentious debate with another senior Trump administration official, Kellyanne Conway.
