Chuck Todd Mocks Congressman For Missing Church, Gets Reminded About Forgiveness (VIDEO)

Republican Rep. Michael Conaway was on Meet the Press this weekend. He and host Chuck Todd discussed the Russia investigation but what was possibly even more interesting was the way they opened and closed the interview. At the beginning, Conaway remarked that he would normally be in church on a Sunday morning.

Here’s the exchange via NBC News:

And joining me now is the Republican who has been in charge of the House version of the Russia investigation for the Intel Committee, Congressman Mike Conaway of Texas. Congressman, welcome to Meet the Press.

REP. MICHAEL CONAWAY:

Well, good morning. My, my first Sunday morning show ever.

CHUCK TODD:

Well.

REP. MICHAEL CONAWAY:

So I should be in church and Sunday school but I’m here with you instead.

CHUCK TODD:

I, I, I appreciate that and my apologies to your pastor–

Here’s now the interview ended:

CHUCK TODD:

Mike Conaway, I have to leave it there. Republican from Texas. Thanks for coming on.

REP. MICHAEL CONAWAY:

My pleasure.

CHUCK TODD:

Missing church this morning. I hope your, I hope your pastor forgives you. I appreciate you coming on–

REP. MICHAEL CONAWAY:

I don’t need my pastor’s forgiveness. I need Jesus Christ’s forgiveness.

Maybe Todd should just avoid religion as a topic in the future.
