After NBC’s Today touted the latest hire for Hillary Clinton’s expected presidential campaign, Monday’s NBC Nightly News also gushed over the move in addition to blasting possible Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush for creating an “embarrassing situation” by identifying as a Hispanic on a voter registration form.

Interim anchor Lester Holt started the segment by noting that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could be “about to make it official” with speculation being that the presidential announcement could come “as soon as this week” alongside “a flurry of expected announcements from GOP candidates.”
