Matt Lauer Urges Bush to Attack Trump on Multiple Issues During Interview (VIDEO)
Matt Lauer Urges Bush To Attack Trump
On Monday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer sat down for an exclusive interview with former President George W. Bush according to an article from NewsBusters.
The Gateway Pundit reported earlier on Monday about part of the interview where Bush attacked President Trump on the travel ban saying “The bedrock of our freedom, a bedrock of our freedom, is the right to worship freely.”
In the interview Lauer repeatedly urged Bush to attack Trump on a variety of issues from the Muslim ban, the political divide in the country, and Trump’s criticism of the media, just to name a few.
Some of the most ridiculous questions from Lauer included:
“You took office in 2001 after an extremely contentious election, controversial end to that, the Supreme Court decided it, the nation was incredibly divided. How would you compare the divisions we faced then to what we’re living through right now?”
“But there’s enormous division right now. And although President Trump has said he hopes to unify the country, have you, in the first month, seen him do or say anything that, in your opinion, would be an attempt to heal the wounds of the election?”
Even at the times where you were dealing with the worst criticism, where it must have been very difficult to hear and read some of the things that were being said by the press in this country, did you ever consider the media to be the enemy of the American people?
“As a former president, would you like to see a special prosecutor appointed to look into this once and for all and give the American people answers?”
That’s very different talk than what we’re hearing today about a Muslim ban. Do you think the President’s position on this has been well thought out?”
“But by banning people from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering this country, do we make it easier or harder to fight the war on terrorism?
