After Mississippi Governor Refuses to Admit Biden Won Election, Chuck Todd Says He ‘Appreciates’ His ‘Perspective’

Chuck Todd interviewed Gov. Tate Reeves (R-MS) on MSNBC’s Friday broadcast of Meet the Press Daily.

After discussing coronavirus vaccinations in Mississippi, Todd asked the governor if he believed President Joe Biden “won fair and square.”

“I believe President Biden is our president,” Reeves replied, sidestepping the question.

“A lot of people will notice you didn’t…say either way whether he won fair and square,” Todd responded. “Do you believe the election was won fair and square by Joe Biden?”

“There is no question that President Biden is our president,” Reeves repeated, adding how he is against the expansion of mail-in voting in certain states because it “opens things up for fraud.”

“But the fact is that Biden won those states, he was certified in those states, he was certified by the Congress.”

And with that, after Reeves not only refused to answer a very simple question but also shared his opinions on voter fraud without offering any evidence to support his claim, Todd told the governor: “Appreciate you coming on, as you have in the past, and for sharing your perspective with us.”
