'It's Pretty Clear': Chuck Todd Admits Things Were Better Under Trump
Has Biden finally screwed up enough that the liberal media will no longer cover for him? That's doubtful but in a moment of clarity, NBC's Chuck Todd made a shocking realization—Things were better under Trump. Todd was discussing the many crisises caused by Biden and how he now has a 'big credibility crisis' on his hands.
During his explanation, Todd broke protocol and addmited that the border crisis is not Trump's doing and that it fell apart because of Biden:
"How is the White House managing all this, and what do you expect to hear from the president at the UN on Tuesday?" Host Willie Geist asked.
Todd, in contrast to his previous view of the Afghanistan withdrawal, admitted that Biden has "a pretty big credibility crisis" after the past weekend.
"Well, look, I think he’s got a pretty big credibility crisis on his hands because all of these problems in some ways showed up after he said something basically the exact opposite," Todd said.
In addition to the past weekend’s difficulties, Todd also included the border crisis as a "bigger problem" for the Biden administration.
"And of course, the border. We can talk about the border problems, you could say they’re years in the making, but it’s pretty clear that we have a bigger problem now than we’ve had in years, and these policies have turned it into becoming a magnet," Todd said.
From there, Todd posed that Biden has "a lot of work to do" to salvage credibility on the world stage through his UN speech.
"He’s got a lot of work to do. The UN speech, look, he’s got some credibility issues on the world stage. [He has] to make sure that people still view America as a, not just a stable democracy, but a competent leader of the free world right now. So look, he’s got a lot of work to do," Todd said."
Finally, Todd did offer some optimism for Biden by advising him to focus on the Democrats’ upcoming $3.5 trillion spending bill and its chances passing Congress.
"I think the next month’s probably still going to be tough for him politically because he’s got to get this big bill through Congress. If he can get that thing passed, Willie, I think he can start to take a few breaths here a little bit, but he’s got a lot on the line here this month. That’s for sure," Todd said.

President Biden will address the United Nations for the first time since taking office on Tuesday so Todd shouldn't stop counting yet. The week is still young and Biden has plenty more he can screw up between now and Friday.
