Twitter Is Dragging Matt Lauer For #LaueringTheBar at the Presidential Forum

People are upset he didn't go hard enough on Donald Trump.

The presidential race continues to heat up. Last night, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton went head-to-head for NBC’s “Commander-in-Chief Forum,” but people are talking about what happened with the host, Matt Lauer, more than how either candidate performed in the event.

The consensus is that Lauer pressed Clinton about her email leaks for too long, while at the same time going easy on Trump. Lauer didn’t fact-check some of Trump’s more ridiculous claims, especially the lie that he always opposed the Iraq War.

But Twitter didn’t let him get away with the poor display of journalism, and #LaueringTheBar started trending on site.

Let’s hope that the next time Trump and Clinton face off, it’s handled more responsibly.
