Mainstream media bias hit a new low Sunday when “Meet The Press” host Chuck Todd asked a Trump-bashing question so vile presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden told him he went too far.
But despite Biden’s pushback, the question came directly from Biden’s campaign.
During an interview with Biden, Todd turned the topic to the global outbreak of coronavirus and suggested Trump was directly responsible for the death toll.
“Your campaign put out — in a critique of President Trump and says, ‘If he doesn’t do these things he could cost lives,’” said Todd.
“Do you think there is blood on the president’s hands considering the slow response?” Chuck Todd asked.
NBC’s Chuck Todd is COMPLETELY UNHINGED this morning.
Chuck Todd: “Do you think there is blood on the President’s hands?”
Joe Biden: “I think that’s a little too harsh.”

Biden was stunned and backed away from what it appears his own campaign pushed.
“I think that’s a little too harsh,” Biden said.
Biden went on to hammer Trump for “thinking out loud” and making sweeping proposals that must later be backpedaled.
Undeterred, Todd then asked Biden if, as president, he would lift sanctions on Iran in response to the coronavirus, despite no evidence Iran would use the infusion of cash to deal with the virus.
“I don’t have enough information about the situation in Iran right now. And I’m not sure there’s any evidence that — there’s a lot of speculation from my foreign policy team that they’re in real trouble and they’re lying,” said Biden, indicating even he doesn’t trust Iran.
