MSNBC and NBC News announced Wednesday that they will host the first ever Commander-in-Chief Forum in New York City, together with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.
It will be an hour-long event held on Wednesday, September 7, and begin at 8 p.m. Eastern.

Throughout the event, both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, who will appear separately back-to-back, will be on stage fielding questions on issues of national security, military affairs and veterans issues from an audience comprised mainly of members of the military.
NBC News will also ask questions of the candidates. And who will be representing NBC News?

A slap in the face to Trump and his supporters, debate commission chooses Matt Lauer as moderator, a member of the Clinton Global Initiative

And it brought forth the remembrance of a certain CNN host actually stepping out of her moderator role to give President Obama a leg up — and it turned out her information was wrong.
@kaitlancollins Is this a joke? May as well bring back Candy Crowley.

And then there was this.
Likely, Bill and Chelsea were otherwise engaged…?

Just out of curiosity, had Lauer been a spokesman for Trump Wines, how would the left have reacted? Yes, I thought so.
