Who else will get the Axe from NBC Today? Here’s what President Trump and others had to say on this morning’s events.
I, and other reporters , have been aware of several women who have come forward privately in the past few months …even before Weinstein. They weren’t willing to go public though…they were terrified of Matt. https://t.co/jR3VV1AWGt
