Donald Trump Mocks NBC & Slams Network Stars Amid Town Hall Scheduling Drama

Donald Trump is putting NBC on blast at the same time as Hollywood stars.

“So you know I’m being set up tonight. I’m doing this town hall with Concast, C-O-N, con, cause it’s a con job,” he said, via Deadline.

“It’s NBC, the worst. Home of Sleepy-Eyed Chuck Todd and some others,” he added.

“I figured, what the hell, we get a free hour on television,” he went on to say, while mocking Today anchor and town hall moderator Savannah Guthrie (“she’s always lovely, isn’t she?”), NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt (“he’s a beauty”) and the town hall NBC had with Biden last week.

“It was a joke,” he said.

“Actually, I’d like to watch him, because I’d like to see if he can make it through the program, he continued.
