Chuck Todd opened today’s MTP Daily by saying that “this administration is struggling from a crisis of credibility, one mostly of the president’s own making.”
As he talked about Trump not backing down from his unproven wiretapping claims today, Todd said there’s a serious problem of not knowing “when to take him at his word.”
He raised this same credibility issue with Speaker Paul Ryan yesterday, asking if it hurts Trump’s credibility on other issues if it’s shown that he’s not credible on this one.
Todd added that Trump needs political capital to get things like health care done, but keeping this controversy going doesn’t help.
