Chuck Todd Declares Ted Cruz ‘Unnerved’ and ‘Rattled’ by Birther Attacks

<p>Appearing on Friday&rsquo;s NBC <em>Today</em>, <em>Meet the Press</em> moderator Chuck Todd hyped the birther attacks on Ted Cruz as damaging to the Texas Senator&rsquo;s campaign: <strong>&ldquo; has unnerved Cruz. You saw him. What got him to attack Trump? He avoided it for six months....This has rattled him.</strong> We&#39;re now on day seven where every day he has had to answer questions about this.&rdquo;</p>

<p>That declaration was prompted by co-host Savannah Guthrie wondering: &ldquo;What about the eligibility question for Cruz? Did Cruz end it? Is it over or is this still gonna float out there and be a potent issue for Trump?&rdquo; Todd asserted: <strong>&ldquo;No, it&rsquo;s still out there because we now have reports that somebody has actually filed the first lawsuit....So, no, I don&#39;t think it&#39;s going away.&rdquo;</strong></p>
