Late Tuesday night, the “big three” broadcast networks were trapped between a rock and a hard place. ABC, CBS, and NBC found themselves begrudgingly praising First Lady Melania Trump’s 2020 RNC speech and while they did plenty of that, they found an escape hatch by using her speech to broadly attack all speakers before her on Monday and Tuesday.

That said, there was one outlandish attack. Seconds after she concluded, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt complained that she condemned “the violence and looting being done in the name of justice” because, in his eyes, that’ll offend protesters.
