Trump‘s Town Hall is being hosted by NBC and Today‘s Savannah Guthrie is moderating the event, though many have commented on how it feels more like a debate between the president and the moderator.
Democrats are praising Savannah for calling out Trump on some of the falsehoods that he has been spewing, including his retweets of conspiracy theories and his thoughts on QAnon.
Savannah has called out Trump for not having a health care plan ready even though his administration is going to court in November to throw out Obamacare, which will get rid of the guarantee for people with pre-existing conditions. She also called him out on not urging Americans to wear a mask and he says he has no problem with mask wearing.

Savannah Guthrie is doing what I’ve been waiting four years for someone to do.

This ain’t no Town Hall. This is an octogan and Savanna Guthrie wants to kill Trump.

Savannah Guthrie just compared Trump to someone’s crazy uncle to his face. She is destroying him.

Savannah’s doing a fine job of pressing Trump but only so much you can do with a fire hose of nonsense

It’s looking like Donald Trump maybe should have just let Joe Biden have his night.
He’s getting absolutely destroyed by Savannah Guthrie.

Okay I switched to Trump’s town hall during a pitching change and I think it’s safe to say that Trump is not coping with Savannah Guthrie’s questions terribly well.

Omg I just turned to Trump & he’s a hot ass mess. Savannah Guthrie is not playing with his ass. Pause: Did he just tell her she’s so cute??? And she just told him why would he tweet a lie

Saw 5 minutes of NBC, watched Savannah utterly destroying him and switched to ABC. Right move.

President Trump says he knows nothing about the crazy conspiracy he retweeted this week claiming Obama and Biden “had SEAL Team 6 killed” and that Osama bin Laden’s death was a hoax. “I’ll put it out there. People can decide,” he says.
