MIAMI, FL – President Donald Trump took part in a live town hall on Thursday night hosted by NBC News. The event was supposed to be an opportunity for the president to field questions from voters but, as expected, he spent more time warding off attacks from the moderator.
Savannah Guthrie, an anchor for NBC’s “Today” morning show, was the moderator for the town hall. Guthrie became increasingly aggressive and hostile toward President Trump throughout the event, going so far as to cut him off and attack his answers.
One of the most ridiculous moments of the night came early when Guthrie attempted to argue that President Trump refuses to denounce white supremacy.
The anchor said:
“We were supposed to, as mentioned, be watching you on a debate stage right now. We’re not doing that, so let’s clear up a few things from the last one.
“You were asked point blank to denounce white supremacy. In the moment, you didn’t. You asked some follow up questions, ‘Who, specifically?’ a couple of days later, on a different show-”
She was then cut off by the president who said:
”Oh, you always do this.”
The morning show anchor continued to argue that President Trump has been “hesitant” to denounce white supremacists, despite the fact that he did, four times, during her tirade.
The president stated very simply:
“I denounce white supremacy. Okay?”
President Trump then had to repeat, several times, before Guthrie gave up on her interrogation. This is just one example of the hour-long town hall that voters endured Thursday night.
With little respect for the most powerful man in the United States, Guthrie continuously launched attacks, only to be swiftly shot down by the president.
Debate, or, rather, town hall viewers, were quick to pick up on the unsurprising performance by the moderator. Multiple prominent conservative figures took to social media to express their disappointment in Guthrie’s moderator skills.
Joe Concha, a media reporter at The Hill, tweeted contempt over Guthrie’s white supremacy attack saying:
“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.”

Keep in mind that this was only 15 minutes into the hour-long event. The negative reviews kept rolling in with thousands of people expressing disappointment over the clear bias.
Fox News host Greg Gutfeld said:
“NBC is embarrassing itself. worse than expected. Guthrie is like a poorly disguised ambush. even she follows up with planned questions after the “townhall” question. what a horrible show trial.”

Megyn Kelly of Fox News also chimed in on the embarrassing display put on by Guthrie saying:
“So far, this is not a town hall for voters, it is designed to appease the angry NBC employees/Dems who are pissed off Trump’s on NBC at all.”

Then, Dan Bongino perfectly summarized the thoughts of viewers everywhere:
“Savannah Guthrie is, without a doubt, the worst moderator I have ever seen.”

The final presidential debate is scheduled for Oct. 22, less than two weeks before Election Day, and at this point, a laughably prejudice moderator is to be expected.

Absolutely massive ‘Trump Train’ spreads across two states as voter enthusiasm for ‘Daddy T’ explodes
TEXOMA, TX – When people say that things are bigger in Texas, they aren’t lying. Especially, when it comes to supporting President Donald Trump.
About 1,000 Texomans participated in a two-state parade for President Trump on Sunday, Oct. 11. They drove from the Hugo Agriplex in Oklahoma, and met up with a group of Trump supporters from Paris, Texas at the Red River.
They traveled along US 271 in different types of vehicles, flying both campaign flags and the American flag. They were in total support of Trump’s re-election, according to Breitbart.
“The organizer says 1,222 vehicles were in the parade and more than 3,000 people participated; more than doubling the size of a similar parade held last month in College Station.”
KBTX anchor Rusty Surette shared photos of the event on his Twitter page Sunday:
Texas might have the biggest overall support for Trump. On Sept. 28, an estimated 5,000 people rallied in pickup trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, and cars in the Texas Panhandle, to show support for the re-election of President Donald Trump. People lined up for more than a mile to get into an already overflowing parking lot before the rally’s start.
Twitter user Su Miller shared video footage of the event on her profile:
Local elected officials and candidates took advantage of the opportunity to address the large crowd of potential voters before the rally. They included Texas State Senator Charles Perry, Joaquin City Councilman Mike Cummings, Lubbock County Commissioner Precinct 3 Candidate Cary Shaw, Lubbock Mayoral Candidate Stephen Sanders, former Texas Federation of College Republicans Chairman Decker Reno, and many pro-life organization speakers.
Pastor Mark Lee Dickson posted on Facebook:
“The Trump Train contained thousands of cars and trucks decked out with Trump flags and decals. It was quite the sight to see as it took over two hours for the entire train to leave the parking lot to cruise the loop for Donald J. Trump.”
A video posted on Facebook shows people lining up more than a mile to join the overflowing Cook’s Garage and surrounding parking lots.
Organizers Dwight Friesen and Forks Loewen wrote on Facebook:
“When showing up please wait beside the loop until the Trump Train passes by and join in. Please be respectful of all laws and fellow Americans. This will be a family-friendly event. Let’s go out, have a good time, and show our great President our love and support. Please share this with your family, friends, and fellow patriots. Texas has Trump’s back!”
The rally, called a huge success by organizers, concluded after sunset.
Organizer and National Border Patrol Council Vice President, Hector Garza, said at the time:
“We had a great, peaceful event with over 4,000 vehicles participating and over 7,000 people participating in the event.”
Video footage of the parade shows cars driving through the city honking and displaying their American flags and Trump 2020 flags.
Participant Ricardo Suarez said President Trump was the best candidate because he truly cared about the people living near the Texas border.
“Finally, we have someone that listens to the issues down here and not just takes [sic] our votes for granted.”
Meanwhile, Latinos in South Florida might love President Trump even more than the folks out in Texas. The Miami Police Department estimated more than 30,000 cars participated in the caravan.
Latinos from Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Cuba living in South Florida know what life is like living under Socialism and Communism. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are dangerous to the ideas of freedom and democracy. But, they know Trump will protect their freedoms.
Another Trump rally took place this month in California, and it brought people from all groups together. Of course it got no media attention.
