“#FireChuckTodd” and calls to boycott NBC News began Thursday ahead of the network’s town hall with President Donald Trump.
The calls come after reports of frustration and anger among NBC, MSNBC and CNBC “talent and staff” over the network’s decision to host a Trump town hall. ABC News is hosting a town hall for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and NBC’s Trump town hall coincides with this event.
The two town halls come in lieu of a second presidential debate, which was canceled after Trump objected to the debate becoming virtual because of his positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
