See what Fox 5 News brought to the table:
President Donald Trump went head-to-head with Today Show anchor Savannah Guthrie during his NBC town hall in Miami Thursday night.
At one point, she questioned his use of Twitter, pointing to his retweet of a conspiracy theory regarding the death of Osama bin Laden.
“You retweeted to your 87 million followers a conspiracy theory that Joe Biden orchestrated to have SEAL Team 6, the Navy SEAL Team 6, killed to cover up the fake death of bin Laden,” Guthrie said. “Why would you send a lie like that to your followers?”
“I know nothing about it,” Trump replied.
Guthrie countered, “You retweeted it.”
Trump argued that it was a retweet of someone’s opinion, adding, “I’ll put it out there, people can decide for themselves. I don’t take a position.”
“I don’t get that,” Guthrie said in response. “You’re the president, you’re not like someone’s crazy uncle who can just retweet whatever.”
Mary Trump the niece of Donald Trump who has been know to be malicious towards her uncle chipped in on Twitter about the situation:

USA Today added to the story too:
Trump was asked repeatedly by NBC moderator Savannah Guthrie to disavow QAnon, a baseless conspiracy theorist group designated as dangerous by the FBI.
It garnered one of the most viral quotes of the evening, as Guthrie condemned Trump for retweeting conspiracy theories onto his account. “I don’t get that, you’re the President. You’re not like, someone’s crazy uncle who can just retweet whatever,” she said.”
Trump isn’t a crazy uncle, he’s the President of the United Staes of America.
The mainstream media seems to always use a filter but when it comes to Trump they just let their true colors show.
They’re not fooling anyone.
