Beware of NBC’s Savannah “the angry poodle” Guthrie!

After watching NBC’s town hall with President Trump, “moderated” by Savannah Guthrie, I have a few observations to share.

One: Savannah Guthrie was anything but a “moderator.” She could fairly be described as an antagonist, or as a hostile interviewer, but not as a moderator.

Two: This event was billed as a “town hall.” So why did Guthrie use the first 20 minutes (one third of the program time) to personally grill President Trump on topics not raised by the town hall participants?

Three: The comparison between the town hall previously held with Joe Biden and The President Trump town hall is stunning.

Joe Biden was treated like a child, or a challenged assisted living patient, who was apologized to for having to be asked certain questions, while President Trump was attacked in rapid fire succession, while all of his answers were treated with disdain, brought into question and rebutted.     

Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News reports that, “Critics piled on NBC News for devoting its town hall to what appeared to be a ‘debate’ between President Trump and moderator Savannah Guthrie, while Democratic nominee Joe Biden was lobbed ‘softballs’ at his ABC News town hall.”

“Viewers who tuned into the Peacock Network expected to hear questions from voters. However, Guthrie spent most of the first 20 minutes grilling Trump on masks and White supremacy.”

“That didn’t sit well with many observers.”

‘“How long will NBC go before giving an actual voter the chance to ask a question?’ asked pollster Frank Luntz, who later called the ‘town hall’ descriptor of the program ‘false advertising.’”

‘“Savannah Guthrie’s posture toward Trump compared to Lester Holt’s toward Biden is night and day,’ The Hill media reporter Joe Concha wrote, recalling a previous NBC town hall with the former VP.”

‘“Trump went from debating Biden to Guthrie! Not sure whether this is good or bad yet … but he’s definitely debating tonight,’ CNN commentator Scott Jennings said.”

‘“The questions from the NBC audience are actually pretty good and fair–so far–and it’s only been Savannah Guthrie that has been awful,’ Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra tweeted.”

‘“The fake pretense of a ‘town hall’ when every aspect of it has been orchestrated in advance by the producers is such obnoxious BS,’ progressive journalist Michael Tracey wrote.”

“Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh called out the disparency between both networks.”

‘“These two town halls capture perfectly the difference in media treatment, Trump vs. Biden. ABC is doing everything they can to keep Joe Biden comfortable. Meanwhile, Savannah Guthrie is attacking the President like she openly hates him. Couldn’t be encapsulated better,’ Murtaugh tweeted.”

“Previous town halls on both networks were scrutinized after voters described as ‘undecided’ had previously expressed animus towards President Trump and favoritism towards Joe Biden.”

Oh Really?

That’s odd.

Did anyone actually expect The President to be treated fairly?

Just sayin’.

Is Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren kidding or is she just “speaking with a forked tongue…, again?”

First of all, I debated whether or not it was even worth commenting about Senator Warren, since she’s only polling like 1%-2% support among democrats in her run for president…, but in the end, I just couldn’t let her get away with her false narratives and “fake news” (lies).

According to David Knowles, an Editor at Yahoo News, “Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday she would take a “hard pass” on a Fox News invitation to hold a televised town hall event, saying she didn’t want to help the conservative network build credibility with advertisers.”

Ha!  Now that’s a true “holier than thou” liberal elite attitude if I ever saw one!

So having you on their network, Elizabeth…, a person who has defrauded the Native Americans in our country…, and our college education system…, that would help “build credibility with advertisers?”

Hmmm.

I think you’re just mad at the Fox News Network for holding you accountable for your racial and cultural identification scandals…, while the rest of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” looked the other way…, but I could be wrong.

“Four of her rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination — Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg and Kirsten Gillibrand — have agreed to the events, in which candidates take questions from moderators and voters. Sanders and Klobuchar have already appeared.”

‘“I love town halls. I’ve done more than 70 since January, and I’m glad to have a television audience be a part of them. Fox News has invited me to do a town hall, but I’m turning them down—here’s why…— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) May 14, 2019”

‘“Hate-for-profit works only if there’s profit, so Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet. It’s all about dragging in ad money—big ad money,’ Warren wrote.”

Wow!  Pocahontas’ level of confusion is quite impressive!

Have any networks demonstrated a more “hate-for-profit” approach than CNN and MSNBC?

No.

Take the last 2 years of fake Russian collusion coverage as well as the “all negative Trump news all the time strategy.”

And which networks exactly have displayed more bigotry and racism than CNN and MSNBC?

No one…, hands down.

And which networks exactly have been caught in intentional lies more often than CNN and MSNBC?

Again…, no one.

So please, Senator Warren…, take your “fake news” story walking.

‘“But Fox News is struggling as more and more advertisers pull out of their hate-filled space. A Democratic town hall gives the Fox News sales team a way to tell potential sponsors it’s safe to buy ads on Fox—no harm to their brand or reputation (spoiler: It’s not).’”

Ha!  So “Fox News is struggling?”

Hasn’t Fox News been the #1 cable news in the ratings for like…, forever?

Hasn’t Fox News been destroying CNN and MSNBC by HUGE margins for like…, forever?

She should quit drinking that “firewater!”  Just more “fake news.”

“In March, citing what it called the ‘inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and Fox News,’ Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez announced that he would not allow Fox News to broadcast any of the party’s 2020 presidential primary debates.”

Oh…, so “Mr. Tolerance,” Tom Perez won’t “allow” Fox News to be a part of the 2020 democrat presidential primary debates?  Because Fox “has an inappropriate relationship” with President Trump?

What?

warren 10

In Perez’s mind, it’s an “inappropriate relationship” because Fox treats The President fairly.

The President responded by tweeting, “Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate. Good, then I think I’ll do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 7, 2019”

Huh?  You may want to get together with your “biased, liberal propaganda, fakes news media” friends, Mr. Perez, and rethink your position about the debates.

WINNING!
