Hillary Clinton was interrupted too much by Matt Lauer during NBC’s Commander in Chief forum, and the reason is because she’s a woman, some progressives said Wednesday night.
Lauer himself was a previously a member of the Clinton Global Initiative, but that supposedly didn’t stop him from handling Clinton in a disrespectful, condescending manner, at least according to some viewers. One of the first complaints was made by Charles Johnson of the blog Little Green Footballs, who said Clinton was “constantly” interrupted by Lauer while Republican candidate Donald Trump never was.
Matt Lauer did not interrupt Donald Trump a single time. He interrupted Hillary Clinton constantly. https://t.co/Ijkh9M2O9I

Neera Tanden, president of the progressive advocacy group Center for American Progress, joined in to say Clinton wouldn’t have been interrupted if she were a man.
Many people are saying @MLauer wouldn’t have interrupted Hillary so much if she were a man.

Many others participated in the feeding frenzy, decrying Lauer’s conduct as a textbook case of men being condescending towards women.
