Thanks to Donald Trump and his big fat mouth, NBC's Today Show had to issue a correction this morning.
Natalie Morales issued the correction saying:
"We do have a clarification on something you may have heard here on Friday after our report on the controversial Trump sign on Donald Trump’s new Chicago building.
During a live phone interview Trump said of the controversy: “This was started by a third-rate architecture critic from the Chicago Tribune who I thought got fired. He was gone for a long period of time.”
Well, in fact that critic – Pulitzer Prize-winner Blair Kamin – has been with the Chicago Tribune for more than 20 years and also spent the 2013 academic year as a Nieman Fellow at Harvard."
Kamin contacted NBC after Trump's comments and agreed to issue a correction.
Yesterday, Trump raised the ire of knowledgeable golf fans, when he claimed that ratings for NBC's US Open would be down because the course looked awful all browned out. Trump was referring to the renovation of Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina. PGA players and other golfers raved at the renovations and said the golf course was excellent.
Trump, who owns a number of golf courses was likely jealous that Pinehurst was getting such high accolades.
It is also likely that ratings for the Open will be lower, but the reason is that Martin Kaymer ran away from the golf tournament. Kaymer won the tournament by 8 shots. Tiger Woods did not play in the event.
Trump needs to shut his mouth...... but unfortunately that will likely not happen.
