Members of the mainstream media often wonder why they're considered the enemy of the people, why most Americans loathe the press. NBC's Chuck Todd proved just how deranged he is on Sunday when he asked former Vice President Joe Biden if he thought President Trump has "blood on his hands" because of his response to the Wuhan coronavirus.
"Your campaign put out, in a critique of President Trump, and says if he doesn't do these things, he could cost lives. Do you think there's blood on the president's hands, considering the slow response?" Todd asked. "Or is that too harsh of a criticism?"
It was evident that Biden was uncomfortable with the question.
"Yeah, that's a little too harsh," Biden replied. "I think what's happening is the failure to – as I watched a prelim to your show, where someone used the phrase, 'The president thinks out loud.' He should stop thinking out loud and start thinking deeply. He should start listening to the scientists before he speaks. He should listen to the health experts. He should listen to his economists."
According to the former vice president, Trump should focus on making sure small business loans make their way to owners to ensure workers are still getting paid. He also said Trump should focus on making sure the funds from the Wuhan coronavirus relief package make their way to Americans quickly.
"That's where the focus should be and it should be laser-focused," Biden said.
Conservatives slammed Todd for his question and rightfully so:

Infuriating, Rage-inducing media gaslighting:— Benny (@bennyjohnson) March 29, 2020
Chuck Todd asks if Trump has “blood” on his hands for “slow Coronavirus response”
In Jan. Trump was banning China travel, creating China Virus task force, media was calling him racist & frothing Impeachment
Chuck Todd is a deranged lunatic desperate to advance panic & hysteria to enrich himself through clicks & eyeballs. He’s a disgrace to legitimate journalism, his network, & ANYONE who claims him. His interview today will be remembered by history as the low point for “journalism.”— Dan Bongino (@dbongino) March 29, 2020
Tim Russert would never ask a question like this. Even Joe Biden didn’t take the bait to assist in a viral moment attempt. https://t.co/yxyWgk09Xq— Joe Concha (@JoeConchaTV) March 29, 2020
It's amazing that the leftist media are saying President Trump has been too slow to respond to the Wuhan coronavirus. When Trump banned all flights to and from China back in January, Democrats and their friends in the press were outraged. When Trump started calling the virus the "Chinese virus," because, you know, it started in China, he was labeled a racist xenophobe. Trump continually pressed Congress to pass the Wuhan coronavirus relief package and it was Speaker Nancy Pelosi – a Democrat – who held up its passage.
And Chuck wonders why people can't stand him and his buddies?
