I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t endure the entire hour of NBC’s resident shrew Savannah Guthrie debating President Trump in what was supposed to be a town hall for voters.
I don’t know how Trump kept his cool to be honest with you.
Listening to Savannah the Shrew made me think of Stella Mudd.
Over at the ABC town hall, Joe Biden got the kid glove treatment from Clinton operative George Stephanopoulos. But in her face-off against Trump, Guthrie was argumentative, combative, disrespectful and constantly interrupting. How long was it before the belligerent shrew finally shut the hell up and actually let an audience member speak?
This tweet about sums it up:
I realize that 99% of television news personalities despise the President. But don’t bill something as a town hall for voters when it isn’t. And that was not a town hall for voters.
Guthrie’s hectoring put Chris Wallace to shame. But like Wallace, she seemed under the impression that her purpose was to debate the President. That wasn’t the purpose.
Ladies, behaving like a frigid, angry shrew doesn’t make you look “empowered” or “strong.” It makes you look like a frigid, angry shrew.
Don’t ever go full shrew.
If Guthrie thought she was succeeding in making Trump look bad, then not only is she a shrew, she’s an idiot.
It was Guthrie who looked awful. She succeeded only in making Trump look sympathetic.
"OH MY GOSH SHUT UP!" — Me, just now, at the top of my lungs after Savannah Guthrie's latest interruption. Am I alone here?— Mollie (@MZHemingway) October 16, 2020
Like I said, I don’t know how he kept his cool with this fishwife badgering him endlessly. I couldn’t do it.
Someone should nominate President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize just for having enough self-restraint to avoid punching Savannah in the mouth.
Could you imagine Biden’s reaction if Savannah treated him so disrespectfully? By the third interruption, old hot-head Joe would be calling her names, shoving his finger in her face and pissing himself in rage.
Come to think of it, back in February Savannah Guthrie did interview Joe for the Today show, and he lost his marbles when she questioned him about Hunter. Remember? And she wasn’t nearly as combative and rude as she was last night.
Which might explain why, despite it being the biggest story of the day, George Stephanopoulos didn’t say word one about the New York Post’s Hunter Biden exposé.
Well, that and the fact that George wants Biden to win.
And so does Savannah.
Fortunately for President Trump, after four solid years of dealing with a hateful news media, even Savannah the Shrew couldn’t get the better of him.
And, see, if this had been an interview with the President, though I still would have though her a shrew, Savannah’s badgering wouldn’t have bothered me as much. But this was supposed to be a town hall. And Savannah’s performative anger had no place in a town hall.
Guys, I'm beginning to think I don't want to vote for Savannah Guthrie.— Mollie (@MZHemingway) October 16, 2020
And while I’m sure Savannah’s fellow Trump-haters in the media and the ResistanceLOL loved, loved, loved her hectoring performance, it did nothing to inform voters which, at the end of the day, is supposed to be the job of our garbage news media.
Savannah beclowned herself for nothing. In the end, her shameful performance was all sound and fury signifying nothing.
