Trump re­acts to Lauer fir­ing with new blast at ‘Fake News’

The Oneida Daily Dispatch (Oneida, NY) - - Weather -

WASH­ING­TON » Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump quickly re­sponded to the fir­ing of “To­day” show host Matt Lauer on Wed­nes­day, say­ing ex­ec­u­tives at NBC and Com­cast should be “fired for putting out so much Fake News.”

Trump tweeted: “Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for ‘in­ap­pro­pri­ate sex­ual be­hav­ior in the work­place.’ But when will the top ex­ec­u­tives at NBC & Com­cast be fired for putting out so much Fake News.”

He then called out the NBC News chair­man, adding: “Check out Andy Lack’s past!” It was not im­me­di­ately clear what that com­ment re­ferred to. NBC de­clined to com­ment on Trump’s tweets.

In other mis­con­duct news, Gar­ri­son Keil­lor, the for­mer host of “A Prairie Home Com­pan­ion,” said Wed­nes­day that he has been fired by Min­nesota Pub­lic Ra­dio over al­le­ga­tions of what the net­work called im­proper be­hav­ior. Keil­lor said he had put his hand on a woman’s bare back when try­ing to con­sole her.
