On Wednesday night, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt anchored the newscast from Trump Tower, which seems kind of silly since it’s four minutes away from NBC’s studios at Rockefeller Center. No one should mistake this for some kind of scandalous act of deference. Holt whacked Trump with tough question after tough question.
For scandalous deference, we take you back to Holt on January 29 with the other presumptive major-party nominee, Hillary Rodham Clinton. He “winced” when anyone dared to suggest she’s dishonest.
