<p>NBC News political director and<em> Meet the Press</em> moderator Chuck Todd lamented in the final moments before President Obama&rsquo;s final State of the Union Tuesday night that the <strong>&ldquo;timing&rdquo;</strong> of Iran&rsquo;s seizure of 10 Sailors from the U.S. Navy <strong>&ldquo;couldn&#39;t be worse for the President&rdquo; </strong>as he went onto tout the Iran nuclear deal in his address.</p>

<p>After colleague Andrea Mitchell again pouted (as she did on<em> NBC Nightly News</em>) about the situation, Todd followed with a similar sentiment:<strong> &ldquo;[T]iming couldn&#39;t be worse for the President. I mean, Iran was one of the examples he wants to set of sort of some things he feels are big accomplishments in his administration.&rdquo;</strong></p>
