MSNBC’s Chuck Todd reported on Wednesday that White House aides complained to him that Republicans are trying to “Swift Boat” Sergeant Bergdahl – suggesting that they are purposely attacking a prisoner of war to bring down President Obama.
According to The Washington Free Beacon, Todd told Matt Lauer Wednesday morning, “I’ve had a few aides describe it to me as ‘we didn’t know that they were going to swift boat Bergdahl.'”
Todd stated that the White House was “caught flat-footed” on the backlash against the prisoner swap for Sgt. Bergdahl.
