Savannah Guthrie, co-host of NBC’s Today, interviewed Sarah Huckabee Sanders about the Mueller report findings Monday morning — and it was either one of her best or one of her worst, depending on who you ask.
Guthrie spoke with President Donald Trump’s press secretary about the report that found no evidence he colluded with Russia. Guthrie began by challenging Sanders on Trump’s claim the report is “a total exoneration” (Sanders maintains that it is). She then asked Sanders if she thinks the president should apologize to the Special Counsel for his name-calling over the past two years. Sanders replied: “I think democrats and liberal media owe the president and owe the American people an apology.”
The pair’s interactions got heated at multiple points throughout the segment, such as when Guthrie likened Sanders to a child when trying to get her to answer a question.
After the interview aired, Guthrie was trending on Twitter — and a lot of it wasn’t pretty, with many calling her “pathetic,” “irrational,” a “liar” and a “feckless talking head,” to name a few.
Savannah Guthrie is a feckless talking head…

Way to go Sarah on Today interview with Savannah Guthrie. Her voice was shaking she was so mad at No Collusion!

WOW. Sarah Huckabee Sanders destroyed Savannah Guthrie on NBC this morning. The Mueller report vindicates the President. This isn't hard to understand.

So now we all know that Savannah Guthrie wants a socialist government and hates our President. Seems like she absolutely hates him. I don't want to see that in the morning so I won't be tuning in.

Many brought up her interview with Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann.
Sad shrill shill Savannah Guthrie tried SO hard, but Sarah Sanders handles her easily. Maybe Savannah should stick with trying to shame kids into apologies they don't owe, like she did with the young man from Covington…https://t.co/4WknHb0XfZ https://t.co/iiaOxwtNAI

Awesome job Sarah! It's so pathetic to watch Savannah Guthrie being so controlled with her Trump derangement. Brings back memories of her interview with Nick Sandmann…now shes got her stooges on with their stupidity. Conclusion for you morons..no collusion or obstruction!

Savannah Guthrie tried to convict innocent teenager from Covington Catholic on national television. @TODAYshow should be sued.

Savannah Guthrie just wiped the floor with Sarah Huckabee Sanders. My Advice: Someone without a legal background should NOT attempt to argue the law with someone who has a JD while on live TV. #TodayShow

Gee, Sarah Sanders just appeared on "fake news" station NBC to be interviewed by Savannah Guthrie.
Guess it's not so "fake," right, Sarah?

Folks, Savannah Guthrie has a law degree. Sarah Sanders just lies for a living.
— Merlisa (@merlisa) March 25, 2019
Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a liar. She didn’t “take down” Savannah Guthrie. She lied to her face like she’s been lying to the American people these past couple of years.

And many people were wondering if the hate tweets about Guthrie were actually real.
Russian Bots are mad at Savannah Guthrie, but, there's no collusion!

So I see "Savannah Guthrie" trending and click on it.
Only to find the first four tweets all appear to bots.
Come on @jack either fix this or its time for new laws.
The minimum, we need citizen verification flags. pic.twitter.com/aMqnkiGd79
