Trump’s NBC appearance, scheduled to run at the same time as a town hall with Biden on ABC, has already whipped up a storm of controversy among liberals. The Washington Post accused the network of playing into Trump’s “ratings obsession” by giving him the slot, while a host of NBC actors and producers called on the network to air the slot at another time, to protect “the political health of our democracy.”
I will be doing a major Fake @NBCNews Town Hall Forum, live tonight from Miami, at 8:00 P.M. They asked me to do it in place of the Rigged Steve Scully (he is now suspended from @cspan for lying) Debate. I wonder if they’ll treat me as well as Sleepy Joe? They should!

Trump’s campaign said that the president will host “at least in the short term, two to three events a day” in these final weeks before the election, adviser Jason Miller told reporters on Monday. Biden’s campaign, by contrast, has been more muted. The former vice president has favored small, socially-distanced gatherings, and for nearly half of September, “called a lid” on press access before noon.
Even on Wednesday, as the New York Post revealed a tranche of emails allegedly implicating Joe and Hunter Biden in a range of corrupt foreign dealings, the Biden campaign called an early lid before 10am.
