NBC News’ Chuck Todd said Tuesday that Biden’s declining cognitive health has been an “open secret” for years, revealing that a senior cabinet member from the Biden administration suggested in 2022 that the president cannot run for reelection.

“I’m not gonna out the cabinet secretary, right?” Todd said on his podcast, “The Chuck Toddcast.” “But I had a cabinet secretary two years ago… all out of the blue ask me, ‘Do you really think he’s gonna — he can’t run again like this?'”

The former “Meet the Press” host then said that the secretary told him he had little interaction with Biden.

“This is a pretty senior cabinet secretary. And this was two years ago,” Todd emphasized. “This is one of those, you know, it’s the classic open secret, a non-versation, right? It’s the story everybody knows and no one was— everybody was afraid to talk about.”

Todd further criticized the Biden administration for hiding Biden’s health, notably giving the mainstream media a pass.

“It looks like they’re putting, essentially, party over country — and for what?” he posed. “They cannot, I mean, there is no evidence — this is irresponsible — there is no evidence he can serve four years.”

“There is no evidence he can serve four years and the fact that they have to drag — this White House had to, they had to drag it out of him that they’ve had this neurological test,” he continued. “If he had it, he should have been at the [ABC News host George] Stephanopoulos interview: ‘Here you go, George, here it is. Here it is. I know people have been asking for it. Look, I did it in February. It’s clear, you know, it’s all fine. Here it is.'”

“But now you have to wait till the New York Times goes to the visitor logs, finds eight visits!” he said. “‘No, it wasn’t eight. It’s just been three with Biden. But don’t worry, all is good.’ They have no credibility left on this topic. None.”

Despite concerns from Democrats, Biden has been adamant that he’s staying in the race, even saying during the recent ABC News interview that he would only drop out if the “Lord Almighty” told him to.
