MTP mocked for Buzzfeed panelist and Chuck Todd’s absurd ‘stereotyping’

We already knew NBC’s “Meet the Press” was in trouble, but today’s episode serves as further evidence.

Seems like tough times for Meet the Press – today’s panel includes the “Washington bureau chief” for… Buzzfeed.

No wonder Meet The Press is # 3 in the ratings. They have a Buzzfeed bike messenger on their panel. Get a starched shirt and suit dopey!

Meet the press has a panel member from buzzfeed. Yeah I thought this was a show for educated adults

Just watched the panel on Meet The Press like I was reading the Sunday funnies. Those folks were hilariously out of their skulls. #MTP

It's nice how Meet The Press has an illiterate clown from Buzzfeed on, just in case anyone has a question about lists of pictures.

The show’s genius host, Chuck Todd, decided to divide America between the “Starbucks nation” and the “Chick-fil-A country.”

Dimwit Chuck Todd: Midterms boil down to "Starbucks Nation" vs. "Chick-Fil-A Country." You can't spell "oversimplification" without "MTP!"

Idiot @chucktodd's election analysis is "Starbucks" versus "Chick-fil-A"? No fucking stereotyping there! #mtp @meetthepress Click!

But @chucktodd, what happens if you like Starbucks AND Chik-fil-A!?!

— Nacho (@amynacho) September 21, 2014

Chuck Todd divides the USA into "Starbucks nation" and "Chick-Fil-A country." So his plan to save Meet the Press is asinine generalizations.

More insipid sophistry from Chuck Todd, who splits U.S. into "Starbucks Nation" and "Chick-Fil-A Country" pic.twitter.com/QIfuzFoV1y

Dear @chucktodd: I don't go to Starbucks or Chik-Fil-A. What kind of American am I? #MeetThePress #Stupidity #NBC

How can you be sure “Meet the Press” is on a downward spiral? When you see tweets like this:

OK, folks are mocking the Starbucks/Chick-Fil-A stuff, but c'mon, this was the best @meetthepress in a long time @chucktodd

Starbucks Baristas Are Awful With Names… Marbra? Um, Okay.

If you ever went to Starbucks—and actually ordered a drink, not just use the bathroom—then you know how hard it is for some baristas to get names right. If it hasn’t happened to you directly, don’t worry, you’ll see it soon. Maybe your friend Melissa will post pictures on Instagram of her venti-sized white cup with “Mahlizard” scribbled on its side.

I can’t say I blame the baristas, though. They are always busy and it does get pretty loud in there…but how does one get “Marbra” from Barbara? (And it only gets worse from there.)

1.) Barbara

2.) Allison

3.) Margaux

4.) Hillary

7.) Eleanor

8.) Bonnie

9.) Margo

10.) Trudy

11.) Janice

12.) Allison

13.) Veronica

14.) Becky

15.) Stacy

16.) Katie

17.) April

18.) Justin

19.) Isaac

20.) Lara

I’m not too bothered as long as no one tries try talking to me before I’ve had my coffee.

…but MARBRA?! Really!?
