After a series of defeats for the Biden regime over the weekend, left-leaning television anchor Chuck Todd had some harsh truths for President Joe Biden. The Hill reports Todd went on NBC’s “Sunday Today with Willie Geist” to talk about several of Biden’s recent political failures, including the botched Kabul drone strike, France’s recall of U.S. diplomats, and the FDA’s rejection of COVID-19 booster injections for those under 65. Geist questioned what people should anticipate from Biden, who is scheduled to address the United Nations.
When asked by Geist, “How is the White House managing all this, and what do you expect to hear from the president at the UN on Tuesday?” Todd answers, “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.”
He cited Biden’s assurances to Americans that the departure of troops from Afghanistan would not be “messy” and would not resemble Saigon in 1976. He discussed the inconsistent messaging on Covid vaccine booster shots, saying, “On coronavirus vaccine boosters, Biden came out and essentially indicated eight months, maybe as soon as five months, now, we’re not sure if anyone under 65 is going to get a booster shot.”

Todd went on to mention the crisis at the southern border, stating, “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.”
In discussing Biden’s UN speech, he said, “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, 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 suggested a bright spot for Biden could be the passage of a $3.5 trillion spending bill saying, “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.”
According to the political commentator and host, the problems collectively may undermine the president’s legitimacy at home and internationally.
