Commentator
    (July 29, 1976- )
    Born in Oakland, California
    Middle name is Marvin
    NBC News White House correspondent
    Weekend co-anchor for the Today Show
    He had a heated exchange with President Donald Trump, during a COVID-19 briefing, over drug therapy treatment for Coronavirus (March 20, 2020).
    He was criticized by the right by insinuating the President was gas lighting Americans by asking 'Is it possible that your impulse to put a positive spin on things may be giving Americans a false sense of hope?'
    His line of questioning to the President led Trump to answer: 'I say that you're a terrible reporter, that's what I'd say. I think it's a very nasty question and I think it's a very bad signal that you're putting out to the American people.'
    He made a shocked 'pearl clutching' gesture when he was called a terrible reporter for his question.
    He had previously sparred with President Trump over his previously identifying as pro-choice.
    He graduated from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism in 1998.
    He has reported Iraq’s 2005 election and the assassination of Osama Bin Laden.
    His team was nominated for a Live Coverage Emmy Award in 2006 for reporting on the Death of Pope Pope John Paul II. (He would receive nominations in 2010 and 2011 as well.)
    Trump was roundly criticized over the appropriateness of attacking a reporter during a time of crisis.
    The full context of his question to Trump leading to the 'terrible reporter' comment was : 'So what do you say to Americans who are scared, though? I guess, nearly 200 dead, 14,000 who are sick, millions, as you witnessed, who are scared right now. What do you say to Americans who are watching you right now who are scared?'
