Donald Trump: NBC News Town Hall a ‘Setup’

Charlie Spiering 15 Oct 2020

President Donald Trump on Thursday said that a scheduled town hall with NBC News was a “setup” against his campaign.

“You know, I’m being set up tonight. I’m doing this town hall with “Con-cast,” Trump said, using his favorite nickname for Comcast — the parent company of NBC.

Trump spoke about the upcoming town hall during a campaign rally in North Carolina, just hours before the town hall was scheduled to take place in Miami, Florida.

“I’m doing it, and it’s NBC. The worst,” Trump continued. “Home of ‘Sleepy Eyes’ Chuck Todd and some others.”

Trump recalled that NBC did a town hall with former Vice President Joe Biden earlier in October that was ridiculously easy.

“They gave Joe Biden, a week ago, a town hall, and it was meant for children,” Trump said. “They asked him questions that a child could answer, any child. A smart child, not such a smart child … it was a joke.”

Trump said that when NBC representatives reached out to him for a town hall with NBC host Savannah Guthrie, he agreed.

“I figured what the hell, we get a free hour of television,” Trump said, and added wryly, “And we have Savannah Guthrie, she’s always lovely, isn’t she?”

Trump said it would be interesting to see the difference between how NBC handled his town hall versus the one they did for Joe Biden, whom he called “a guy who couldn’t put two sentences together.”

“So I’ll see you later on, NBC,” Trump concluded. “I look forward to it. We’re going to be doing it from Miami.

Trump is going to (easily) win the ratings war on this dueling town hall nonsense but the reality is that ratings do not matter: votes do

It’s not clear what could happen on Senate floor that would change Biden’s mind on being against court-packing.  Rs likely have the votes.

#BREAKING: Even though he reiterates he's still "not a fan" of court-packing, Biden opens the door to the idea of "other alternatives" and policies regarding the future of the Supreme Court.

In other words, he's moving toward court-packing, folks. Get ready. #BidenTownHall

If Guthrie had been half as civilized and professional as the questioners—for example, asking a question and then politely listening to the answer without having a temper tantrum—that would’ve been a really illuminating debate. Instead, she went Full Clown and Trump stomped her.

Replying to  @paulsperry_  Shooting at the leg of an armed dangerous criminal will get you killed.  End of story. Biden is an idiot.
@mystery-ak

I have never forgotten when Biden was VP and said this:
"I told my wife if there are bad guys at the house, go upstairs onto the balcony and fire the shotgun twice, and the bad guys will leave."

He did not say this, I am:  If I pick up my weapon, I am going to kill the reason for my having to pick it up.  The bad guys will be dead.

all in all, the town hall was a better performance for Trump, despite getting pressed by Savannah Guthrie, than the first debate. it wasn’t classic, combative Trump, but he responded well to questions from the audience members and did enough to help his campaign.

Absolutely. Anyone with even a little firearms training knows that if the situation warrants discharging a weapon, you aim center mass to kill, not wound. One of Biden's stupider comments.

That Trump Town hall was fantastic. Aside from Guthrie being deranged (which helps Trump more than anything) the questions and answers were all good, he looked as strong as he ever has, and there was love for him from the audience. That was way better than a 2nd debate for him.— Shem Horne (@Shem_Infinite) October 16, 2020

Victoria33 you are a lying dogfaced pony soldier.

This is what Pedo-Joe said:
"I said, 'Jill, if there's ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house,'" Biden said.

"You don't need an AR-15—it's harder to aim," he added, "it's harder to use, and in fact you don't need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun! Buy a shotgun!"

She's completely hostile.

@Bigun

I didn't tune in until it was almost over,but she was more than hostile. EVERY question,and there were 3 or 4,that I hear her ask were more like accusations than questions. It was like Trump was a murder suspect at a police station,and she was interrogating him.

It was not just the questions,it was also the hostile tone of voice.

I honestly didn't know she had it in her. All I have ever seen her do or say before was fluff that a airhead would say.

I HAVE to think she was coached by Slow Joe's team.

Hostile anti-Trump "moderator" Savannah Guthrie's husband is major Dem activist and donor.  A Clinton operative who worked in Clinton WH for 8 yrs. Couple hosted parties for Huma Abedin, Philippe Reines & Joe Lockhart. Hubby was Gore aide who advised not to concede 2000.
