Beating a dead horse - Trump Townhall
I know this topic is beaten to death but it’s worth starting another short-lives thread.

I’ve watched that townhall 2-3 times now and the manner in which Savanna Guthrie spoke to Trump was absolutely despicable. I can’t remember anything in recent memory where a “journalist’s” personal ideology was so blatantly displayed in an interview. (Maybe the Bush interview where they were trying trip him up on that Syrian general’s name?)

Her constant interrupting while he was speaking and trying to answer the voters’ questions was shameful. Her need to “fact check” everything he said was completely out of line. She obviously knew this was her one chance to give Trump a piece of her mind and she took it...objectivity be damned. She came across as a self-proclaimed expert on every topic even going so far as saying “I’ve read that article too and that’s not what it said...” As if she’s some sort of scientific scholar; guaranteed she’s never read a single scientific scholarly journal and if she has, she has no clue how to critique one.

Her snarky, smug, sanctimonious facial expressions and tone of voice disgusted me. I wish Trump would’ve “laid her soul to waste” on national TV to quote the Stones. Meanwhile Stephanopoulis was playing T-ball with Biden across the aisle.

I’m holding firm in my view that the only solution to escape these horrific deranged progressives is peaceful secession and dissolution of the union.

Has anyone suggested that you might be a bit obsessed?

Seems like the most calm path forward. Not sure how you split the country but the problem would be the complete downfall and decay of the left country that would then fall back to the right country to save them all.

Agreed. It’s the same with the left and police.

Progressives are quick to disparage and vilify the police but quickly call for said police’s help when “violent right-wing extremists” confront their violence.

The amount of disrespect exhibited by Guthrie towards a sitting POTUS to his face was low, even by the MSM's standards.

100% truth...hence my initial point of not remembering anything in recent years that was so blatantly disrespectful. I doubt Hannity would've even treated Obama that way if they were to pair up.

And your right, but so glad he got the opportunity to give his message and it was obvious while she was who she was, the 'non-partial' audience was very supportive and respectful of the president. Also, he kept keeping her straight by often saying, 'you should be on my side' we are saying the same thing.

The MSM distortions are WAY too obvious for most sensible people. The far left will not change their views but those in the middle can see and will!!

I mean... did you think something would magically change in between viewings?

I know he would never do it. But I'd pay money to see Trump get fed up with Savannah Guthrie's interruptions and calmly tell her, 'Look, Honey, if you interrupt me again I'll have to come over there and spank you.'

The expression on her face would be priceless.
