<p>In an interview with White House chief of staff Denis McDonough on Thursday, <em>Today</em> co-host Savannah Guthrie surprisingly held President Obama accountable for opposing Republican Supreme Court nominees in the past while calling on the GOP to approve his now.</p>

<p>After McDonough called on the Senate to &ldquo;do its job&rdquo; and allow a vote on Merrick Garland, Guthrie countered: <strong>&ldquo;When it comes to these judicial nominations, perhaps neither side has clean hands entirely.
