New “Meet the Press” host Kristen Welker is facing calls for her cancellation before her debut has even aired for giving a national television forum to former President Donald J. Trump, an unforgivable offense to the rabidly authoritarian left-wing thought police.
Welker, who replaced Democratic Party shill Chuck Todd at the helm of NBC’s Sunday Morning flagship, sat down with the embattled 2024 GOP frontrunner for a wide-ranging interview, portions of which have already been posted to social media as teasers for the show, infuriating those who see free speech as an existential threat to their agenda of total societal control.
Leftist cyberbullies took to X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, to attack Welker and her network, accusing her of having “sold her soul” and spewing the tiresome and historically ignorant comparisons of Trump to Hitler that have become commonplace in this sad era of historical dumbness, with calls for a boycott of the long-running political talk show.
“‘Kristen Welker to Interview Trump For Meet the Press Launch.”‘Nothing like kicking off your new political show with a man who attempted a coup and incited the Jan 6 attack. It’s as if corporate media wants FASCISM. Plus she will lose liberals forever,” wrote Sirius/XM host Dean Obeidallah, a frequent MSNBC contributor who recently insisted Trump must die in prison to save “democracy.”

Unhinged former MSNBC/ESPN personality Keith Olbermann, who has spent his post-network years holed up in his New York apartment where he records crazed self-made videos of his profanity-soaked political rants, slammed Welker as a stenographer for Trump, a man who he hates so intensely it has driven him into madness.
She’s already irretrievably damaged. What a disastrous stenography job with Trump

Another left-wing X user who identifies as an “ally of the #lgbtq+ community” and goes by the unironically apropos handle of Oral Carter, accused the new MTP host of selling her soul, adding “She’s jumped on the Trump Train, and will now be using her platform to confirm the LIES of Trump and the GOP. All for ratings. Chuck Todd was bad, but she’s trash.

More howls of outrage from the creatures who populate the leftist moonbat fever swamp on X.

Trump is a Terrorist, get it trending. He attacks Jack Smith and the judges every day. Boycott Meet the Press.#BoycottMeetThePress #AllEyesOnTheJudiciary #TrumpTerrorist #TrumpArrest https://t.co/qDUxhDwtwA

They gave him a platform to taint the jury pool. So reckless & irresponsible. He’s a traitor, not someone that should ever be normalized.
Boycott Meet The Press.

I will NOT be watching Kristen Welker’s @MeetThePress interview of terrorist Donald Trump. What were they thinking?? No fucking way will I watch that trash. Getting rid of Chuck Todd was such a good move, and now this. I hope Meet The Press dies a slow death. Thanks for nothing!

Vomit copiously. Nice work, NBCNews. Had a chance to revive MTP and blew it to smithereens. Is Chris Licht sitting in? Vile ratings grab will fail, and Welker is already destroyed. #BoycottMeetThePress

Meet the Press with Kristen Welker is already unwatchable — and the first show with the terrorist who attempted to overthrow American democracy hasn’t even aired yet.
Tim Russert is rolling in his grave.#BoycottMeetThePress

Gee Kristen, I was looking forward to seeing your first @MeetThePress ~ but if you’re going to be interviewing Trump it’s a hard pass for me. Giving Trump air time will only serve to get him reelected and I love this country too much to ever let that happen. #BoycottMeetThePress

Whether or not the daring interview with the persecuted and demonized enemy of the regime adversely affects Welker’s career trajectory remains to be seen but a similar backlash against CNN over the now infamous New Hampshire town hall with Trump ignited an internal mutiny against then-network boss Chris Licht that ultimately cost him his job.
