Monday, on NBC’s broadcast of the “Today” show, Republican presidential candidate and billionaire business mogul Donald Trump got angry with hosts Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer for “misrepresenting,” his remarks over the weekend about Senator John McCain’s (R-AZ) military service.
Trump said, “John McCain has done a horrible job. The VA is a scandalous, corrupt organization, it’s a disgrace, the way it’s being run, and the veterans of this country are suffering. With that being said, if you saw what I said, and if you saw saw the press conference afterwards, Savannah and the media just has done such a false number, as usual.”
He continued, “Savannah started it off by saying I said that he wasn’t a war hero, I didn’t say that. And if you would have let it run just another three seconds you would have said — that I said, very clearly, he is a war hero. I have absolutely no problem with that. What I do have problems with, is that he called 15,000 people that showed up for me to speak in Phoenix, he called them crazies because they want to stop illegal immigration, and they were insulted, and they were great Americans, and he has not taken care of the vets.”
“Why did Savannah start off by saying I said that he was not a war hero? I never said that. I said he was a war hero, Matt. So, you misrepresent just like everybody else,” he added.
