Our hearts sank for a moment when it was announced that former President Donald Trump would be among the guests on Meet the Press this Sunday on the first episode hosted by Kristen Welker.
Was NBC News about to make the same mistake CNN made earlier this year when it hosted a live town hall with Trump?
Thankfully it appears NBC News has learned its lesson from the CNN fiasco. The Trump interview is being pre-recorded today(Thursday) in New Jersey making it more difficult for Trump to deploy his usual firehose of falsehoods.
What are the chances the final edit will include Trump calling Welker a “nasty person” or walking off the set?
