Fans of Donald Trump flooded Twitter with complaints about Chuck Todd after the "Meet the Press" host asked former Vice President Joe Biden if the president has "blood on his hands" due to people dying from the coronavirus pandemic that he has been accused of ignoring for too long.
On a day when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told CNN's Jake Tapper, "As the president fiddles, people are dying and we just have to take every precaution,” Biden was asked by Todd, "Do you think there is blood on the President's hands?" to which he replied, "I think that's a little too harsh."
That exchange set off a Twitter maelstrom by the president's rabid boosters who are now demanding that Todd be fired.
