People are calling Lauer a Clinton shill. He did give $20,000 to their foundation.
#LauersABadChoice
People are enraged that Lauer would be chosen for this role. Although this is a forum—not an official presidential debate—his previous association with the Clinton Global Initiative is seen as a liability.
#LauersAGoodChoice
Then again, Trump donated 100k to the Clinton Foundation. It's a charity, not a slush fund.
#LauersAGoodChoice
It's just a forum, and NOT a presidential debate, which is far more serious and carries a lot more weight.
#LauersABadChoice
Lauer's not exactly known as a political heavyweight.
