It's not likely that NBC will dump Trump, but the effort displays all the usual liberal "free speech for me, but not for thee" hypocrisy. NBC knows it would be buried by public outrage were it to cancel Trump. But make no mistake: They'd cancel him in a New York minute if they felt they could get away with it.
