<p>Reacting to Donald Trump&rsquo;s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention Thursday night, on Friday morning, the hosts and correspondents of NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em> scolded the GOP nominee for his &ldquo;dark&rdquo; tone of &ldquo;doom and gloom.&rdquo; Opening the broadcast, co-host Matt Lauer proclaimed:<strong> &ldquo;Donald Trump closes out the Republican National Convention in a speech that was both fiery...and dark.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Moments later, fellow co-host Savannah Guthrie chimed in: <strong>&ldquo;Depending on you ask, some saw a leader ready to put America back on track, others saw a lot of doom and gloom.&rdquo; </strong>Correspondent Peter Alexander followed: &ldquo;This wasn&#39;t exactly Ronald Reagan&#39;s &lsquo;shining city on the hill,&rsquo; it wasn&rsquo;t George W. Bush&#39;s &lsquo;compassionate conservatism.&rsquo; Instead, it was Donald Trump&#39;s order and the border.&rdquo;</p>
