Trump Gets PUMMELED During TODAY Show Interview; Matt Lauer Did NOT Hold Back (VIDEO)

Ever since Matt Lauer threw Donald Trump some majorly softball questions during his Q&A with the president-elect during the campaign, many people have been criticizing how he didn’t go hard enough on Trump to get some real answers.

Well, Lauer clearly got the message, albeit a little too late, because he just absolutely went after Trump during a phone interview on the TODAY show Wednesday morning.

Lauer said:

“You seem to understand that perhaps having fights on Twitter would not be appropriate for the president. I have not seen you backing off fights on Twitter… In the time since you were elected, you’ve targeted the cast of Hamilton, The New York Times, China, Boeing, the media, and SNL.”

Which, of course, put Trump on the defense pathetically trying to explain how going after SNL and a Broadway show are somehow justified. The president-elect also seems to think that Twitter is an appropriate form of communication, no matter how immature the tweets. He also, again, went after SNL, and when Lauer brought up the fact that he had previously hosted the show, Trump whined that it’s gone downhill since then.

Sure, Donald, that’s it.

Good on Lauer for finally being tough on Trump.

Watch Lauer really press Trump here:
