  1. Early voters ARE NOT standing in line for hours to vote for China Joe, I can tell you that. #TrumpLandslide!

  2. It wasn’t a ‘town hall,’ it was an NBC ambush. I suppose the Trump campaign felt it couldn’t pass up the prime camera time given the poll numbers and the viral interruption, but NBC’s record left little room for doubt that an ambush was what it would be. Surely Trump’s people expected what they got.

  3. It was not a townhall. It was only the last 20 minutes that the audience memebers were allowed to speak and ask questions. Savanah Gutherie is part of the TV swamp with who her husband is–Michael Feldman–a political advisor to the Democrats. She has always a partisan hack who was out for blood. She butted in all the time–is she running for president? I never watch the Today show anyway.
