Trump Chimes In On Matt Lauer’s Firing: When Will NBC Leadership Be Fired for Fake News?


Shortly after the news broke of Matt Lauer‘s firing from NBC, President Trump decided to jump right into this development and recommend that network chairman Andy Lack should be investigated next.

It’s not completely clear if Trump is suggesting that Lack has a sexual harassment scandal of his own, or if he was just calling out the executive by name as part of his screed against “fake news.”

Trump’s had an active morning on Twitter, and he’s raising quite a few eyebrows again among media observers. Earlier today, the president retweeted three videos from the deputy leader of Britain First, a fringe far-right movement known for spreading racist, Islamophobic propaganda.

Trump also jumped in on a tweet from Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was celebrating CNN’s reported decision not to attend the White House’s Christmas party.

UPDATE – 9:00 a.m. EST: Trump wasn’t done yet.
