Meet the Press host Chuck Todd said Friday that in the wake of the horrific shootings Thursday evening in Dallas, Texas, President Obama needs to give a primetime address to console the grieving country.

“It’s tough because you’re just not here,” Todd said. “It feels like we need, I’ll be honest, we need a primetime speech from him. It feels like we just need one of those moments.”
