Chuck Todd Cannot Believe Harold Ramis' Obituary In The New York Times

Chuck Todd took a cue from the late comedian Harold Ramis, who died early Monday morning, by making some jokes of his own on "Morning Joe."

Todd called out the New York Times for their headline on Ramis' obituary, which read, "Harold Ramis, Alchemist of Comedy, Dies at 69."

"Can you imagine what Harold Ramis would say that the New York Times called him an 'alchemist,'" Todd said, laughing. "Only the New York Times, like, they can somehow make comedy less funny."

Todd recalled his favorite memories watching Ramis' comedy, “Animal House,” and said that Ramis would be the one laughing today if he were alive to see the Times' story.

"Ramis would have absolutely, like, he'd be roaring about how the Times was talking about him this morning."
