Nicholas Sandmann is the student at the center of the protest controversy where racist teens from Covington Catholic were chanting and harassing a Native American vet Nathan Phillips. A Republican PR firm got involved to spin the narrative (that the Catholic students were actually the ones being harassed) and now Sandmann's first sit-down interview will be with Savannah Guthrie on The Today Show. Guthrie's getting a lot of heat online for giving him airtime.
Some of the backlash on Twitter:

Hi Savannah, please ask this kid how he’s going to pay for the billions it will cost to have federal miscarriage inspectors elbowing women out of the way all across America so they can dig through remains in their toilets to determine whether the women can be thrown in prison. https://t.co/dMsfajkqET— Anil Dash 🥭 (@anildash) January 22, 2019
Please send me the link to the shows where you sat down with the parents of #LaquanMcDonald, #TamirRice, #TrayvonMartin, and a host of other innocent Black boys who were killed & had their reputations smeared by bigoted wypipo to justify their murders.https://t.co/UrjCdPNWpi— Bishop Talbert Swan (@TalbertSwan) January 22, 2019
Do you think Pepe the Frog is available for Thursday’s show? Can Dylann Roof do a segment from prison? Heart-to-heart with some Fentanyl traffickers?— Eric Garland (@ericgarland) January 22, 2019
