BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd drew heavy backlash for suggesting that Joe Biden has taken the coronavirus pandemic “too seriously” on the campaign trail.

During a panel discussion, Todd juxtaposed how both Biden and President Trump have handled the virus and questioned whether Biden’s lack of in-person events is crippling his candidacy. 

“It’s interesting when you look at both candidates — in some ways, one [is] not taking the virus seriously enough at all and one, if there’s a criticism, [it] might be, is he taking it too seriously, at least when it comes to campaigning?” Todd began. His tone then changed with a hint of desperation in his voice. “Biden better get out there and do something quick! Hillary Clinton had everyone in our studio in tears off camera in 2016. Tom Brokaw collapsed twice in dealing with his grief. Scientists all over the globe are trying to find a cure for the coronavirus, rather than find a drug that can suppress Biden’s dementia until Tuesday of next week!”
