Optics' of Mueller hearings were a 'disaster' for Democrats, NBC host Chuck Todd admits

Chuck Todd is really a sad sack tonight. 
It wasn't just that Robert Mueller came up short.  It was he didn't come up at all.
Fox News reports Democrats succeeded in getting "substance" from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Capitol Hill testimony Wednesday, but the "optics" were a "disaster," according to NBC Political Director Chuck Todd.

The comments from the host of "Meet the Press" came after NBC "Today" co-host Savannah Guthrie said Democrats hoped to use Mueller's testimony as a way to "capture and captivate Americans' attention and focus them on the issues here."

"If that was the goal, it's a complete failure on that front," Todd responded. He added that the "optics" of the testimony were a "disaster" because Mueller seemed "uncomfortable" during appearances before the House Judiciary Committee and House Intelligence Committee.
