Savannah Guthrie was blasted by Republicans, following NBC News’ town hall event that she moderated where President Donald Trump participated, in place of the presidential debate that was cancelled last week.
Trump supporters cry foul over Guthrie’s questions, as well as her repetitive interruptions of the president, while Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was asked mostly easy questions during ABC’s town hall event that was airing at the same time of NBC News’.
At one point during the event where Trump was talking about retweeting a QAnon-linked conspiracy theory, Guthrie chimed in saying, “I don’t get that. You’re the president. You’re not like someone’s crazy uncle who can just retweet whatever.”

The Democrats applauded and praised Guthrie on social media platforms when she slammed the president, while they ignore current controversy Joe Biden is facing right now involving his family, even with big techs including, Twitter and Facebook censoring users who are sharing it.
Joe Concha, a media reporter, pointed out on Twitter one instance of Guthrie’s hostility toward the president. He wrote: “Trump denounces White Supremacy multiple times. Savannah Guthrie follows by accusing Trump of dodging. This is already an absolute joke. And does the audience get to ask questions? Trump pushes back by asking why Lester Holt didn’t ask about Antifa. Trump denounces white supremacy a good four times. Guthrie: ‘It sounds like you’re dodging.’”

Political commentator Lisa Boothe asked why Guthrie is debating the president, saying: “Why is Savannah Guthrie debating President Trump? I thought this was a town hall. The media is garbage these days.”
