The president linked to Don Jr.’s tweet: “She’s always been horrible and unfair, like most of the fake news reporters, but I still want to play the game, people know! How’s Steve Scully? “
The article highlights that Welker’s parents have given thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates – including both Biden and Trump’s former opponent, Hillary Clinton – and her former party registration as a Democrat.
A spokesman for NBC said Welker has had no affiliation with the party since signing up to vote in Washington, DC, in 2012, pointing to comments from Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller earlier this month calling the White correspondent House “very fair”
Trump also referred to longtime C-SPAN anchor Steve Scully, who was to moderate the second presidential debate – which was canceled after Trump withdrew in protest of a format change in response to his Covid-19 diagnosis.
Scully was indefinitely suspended Thursday after he falsely admitted to claiming his Twitter account was hacked when a message he sent to former Trump aide, Anthony Scaramucci, began to draw the anger of Trump and his allies.
Trump, who often refers to the media as “people’s enemies,” has repeatedly slammed judges who have challenged him during recent televised events, typically journalists or hosts of the news outlet.
In addition to Scully, the president has publicly stumbled upon Savannah Guthrie’s moderation of an NBC town hall held Thursday instead of the fateful presidential debate.
At a meeting in front of this town hall, the president claimed he was “created” and laundered a list of complaints with NBC’s news operation and its front-facing personalities.
And Chris Wallace, Fox News Channel who manages his flagship Sunday news program, has been a bugaboo among Trump and his supporters since moderating the first presidential debate last month and pulling the president’s ire to try to prevent him from rolling the event.
Trump has also besieged the non-partisan body that oversees the presidential debates, claiming he and his supporters without proof that they are conspiring to prevent his re-election.
The final 90-minute presidential debate is scheduled for Oct. 22 at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee.
