Americans FURIOUS That NBC Scheduled Trump Town Hall at the Same Time as Biden’s on ABC

For reasons passing understanding, NBC (*cough, *ahem, arhgh, Mark Burnett) has decided that since Donald Trump pulled out of his debate with Vice President Biden, they would grant … Donald Trump a Town Hall one week from tonight, or nine days before the election – a nice little Town Hall in which he can answer questions with whatever the fck facts he wants to invent in this Town Hall (even IF there is an immediate fact check) at the time – many Trump supporters don’t “trust” NBC, and will largely ignore any “fact check” that may (or may not) happen during the town hall.

For now, we are going to trust the veracity of this announcement on Twitter – and, of course, will immediately reverse our announcement IF it is contradicted by NBC itself between now and the time announced due to proper fury by people upset about the decision. The fact that NBC may grant Biden a Town Hall between now and then due to Trump pulling out of the debate (we presume that would be the only basis for doing so), is not justification for allowing Trump to have his own Town Hall. Donald Trump is the one to have pulled out of the debate, not Joe Biden.

Under this line of thinking, any candidate ever can pull out and expect their own town hall later on. Again, we are simplyΒ presumingΒ this is the reason that NBC has granted Donald Trump the opportunity because there cannot possibly be another justification. We cannot know with any precision why NBC granted the decision, even if they announced a reason, it wouldn’tΒ necessarilyΒ be the actual reason.

Yeah, but one can upset enough people so as to – $$$$$$$.

Peace, y’all
