Savannah Guthrie Held Donald Trump's Feet to the Fire at the Town Hall

"I just don't know about QAnon," Trump said. "You do know," Guthrie replied.

President Donald Trump refused to participate in a virtual debate (opens in new tab) with Joe Biden, but he ended up debating someone: town hall moderator Savannah Guthrie, who hosted the Thursday event on NBC that aired at the same time as Biden's town hall on ABC. Trump is known for steamrolling over his opponents with his sheer force of speech, but Guthrie came prepared, calling out President Trump repeatedly on his inaccurate statements and holding his feet to the fire on questions he typically avoids.

On a number of occasions, Guthrie told the president in no uncertain terms that he had lied, even as the president spoke over her and attempted to deflect. Twitter is roundly praising Guthrie for pulling off what many of her competitors have failed at: Forcing Trump to answer questions without his detracting or evading the question, and not allowing him to interrupt her.
