Matt Lauer Lobs Softballs to Dem AG Fighting Trump Immigration Order


<p><em>More in the <a href="…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the MRC&#39;s NewsBusters blog.</em></p>

<p>On Monday, NBC <em>Today</em> co-host Matt Lauer provided Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson a nationally televised platform to tout his fight against President Trump&rsquo;s immigration order temporarily restricting immigration from seven Middle Eastern countries. Without challenge, <strong>Lauer allowed the Democratic politician to accuse Trump of having &ldquo;violated the Constitution in very fundamental ways.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Starting off the softball exchange, Lauer wondered: <strong>&ldquo;I know you argued this on several fronts. You talked about the broad Constitutional principles involved.</strong> But you also made a more local case for this, saying that this order would have an adverse impact on the state of Washington. <strong>Which sides of the argument, or side of the argument, do you think had the most impact with the judge?&rdquo;</strong></p>
