The journalists at CBS and NBC have found a new Donald Trump “outrage” to hyperventilate over: The President drove his golf cart onto a green at one of the courses he owns. This, according to CBS This Morning guest host David Westin, is a “mortal sin.” Matt Lauer insisted he was “gasping” over video of Trump.
The anchors and pundits on Friday’s NBC Today were beside themselves while decrying President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord. The morning show panelists employed alarmist rhetoric to denounce Trump for stopping “history” and “blowing up” the deal.
In a hostile interview with Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Friday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer didn’t even bother to conceal his contempt for President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. In response, the cabinet official exposed the anchor’s liberal bias on the topic.
Opening Tuesday’s NBC Today, co-hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie assured their liberal viewers that with President Trump back from his overseas trip they were going to guarantee that the Russia investigation was the top headline. Guthrie welcomed the audience by announcing: “The President’s back from his overseas trip, but some of these same headlines persisting.”
Interviewing former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on Thursday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer tried to get the former Bush cabinet official to say that Donald Trump did not have the seriousness to be president: “You were here during the campaign and I asked you about Trump....And when I asked you did he have the gravitas to be commander-in-chief, you dodged it a little bit....you’ve now had 125 days to watch him. Do you feel he has the gravitas to be commander-in-chief?”
According to Matt Lauer, the murderous fictional president portrayed by Kevin Spacey on the Netflix series House of Cards is “tame” in comparison to Donald Trump’s presidency. Interviewing the actor on Wednesday’s NBC Today, Lauer wondered: “...did you ever imagine that there would come a time in real-life politics that would make the plot lines of your show seem tame?”
Today co-host Matt Lauer worried on Friday that appointment of a special counsel to investigate the Trump administration could be “bad news” for Democrats because it may prevent liberal lawmakers from being able to “drive headlines” against the President. The NBC morning show anchor was apparently eager for Trump’s opponents to make a spectacle of the Russia investigation with public congressional hearings.
On Thursday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer and former Obama administration official Jeremy Bash urged newly named Special Counsel Robert Mueller to use his investigative power to go on a fishing expedition to take down President Trump. Specifically, Lauer hoped the former FBI Director would demand to see Trump’s tax returns – documents the liberal media have long been desperate to examine.
During a panel discussion on Wednesday’s NBC Today about the reported James Comey memo accusing President Trump of asking to the former FBI Director to “let go” of the investigation into Michael Flynn, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd made clear what the media agenda would be for the next several months: “I think we know what the summer is gonna be, it’s gonna be the summer of Comey.”
