Trump Mocks Ronna McDaniel for Getting Fired by ‘Fake News NBC’

Former President Trump mocked Ronna McDaniel after NBC News terminated her contract due to internal outrage, only days after announcing she would join the channel as a contributor.

“Wow! Ronna McDaniel got fired by Fake News NBC. She only lasted two days, and this after McDaniel went out of her way to say what they wanted to hear,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social website on Tuesday. “It leaves her in a very strange place, it’s called NEVER NEVERLAND, and it’s not a place you want to be.”

The network fired McDaniel on Tuesday after an onslaught of criticism from its own on-air talent. Multiple NBC commentators cited her participation in Trump’s campaign to overturn the 2020 election, as well as her previous views questioning the election’s legitimacy.

McDaniel resigned as chairman of the Republican National Committee earlier this year, under pressure from Trump and his supporters, despite the former president repeatedly endorsing her for the job.

The former president has often slammed McDaniel and NBC News, which he recently promised to probe for “treason” if elected president again.

“These Radical Left Lunatics are CRAZY, and the top people at NBC ARE WEAK,” Trump wrote in his Truth Social post on Tuesday. “They were BROKEN and EMBARRASSED by LOW RATINGS, HIGHLY OVERPAID, ‘TALENT.’ BRING BACK FREE AND FAIR PRESS.”

In a note to NBC staff on Tuesday, NBCUniversal News Group Chair Cesar Conde apologized for bringing McDaniel on board as a paid contributor:

There is no doubt that the last several days have been difficult for the News Group. After listening to the legitimate concerns of many of you, I have decided that Ronna McDaniel will not be an NBC News contributor.

No organization, particularly a newsroom, can succeed unless it is cohesive and aligned. Over the last few days, it has become clear that this appointment undermines that goal.

I want to personally apologize to our team members who felt we let them down. While this was a collective recommendation by some members of our leadership team, I approved it and take full responsibility for it.

Our initial decision was made because of our deep commitment to presenting our audiences with a widely diverse set of viewpoints and experiences, particularly during these consequential times. We continue to be committed to the principle that we must have diverse viewpoints on our programs, and to that end, we will redouble our efforts to seek voices that represent different parts of the political spectrum.

Take Care,

Ronna McDaniel, for her part, is pursuing legal action against NBC for the terminated contract.
