“Wow! Ronna McDaniel got fired by Fake News NBC. She only lasted two days, and this after McDaniel went out of her way to say what they wanted to hear,” the 77-year-old presumptive GOP nominee wrote on Truth Social.

Trump then appeared to suggest that McDaniel may now be in some sort of political purgatory after her NBC News exit and prior resignation from the RNC following mounting criticism of her leadership.

“It leaves her in a very strange place, it’s called NEVER NEVERLAND,” Trump said, adding, “and it’s not a place you want to be.”

NBCUniversal chairman Cesar Conde terminated McDaniel’s paid contributorship gig Tuesday following public backlash to her hiring from several stars at the network, including MSNBC hosts Rachel Maddow, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, and former “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd.

“After listening to the legitimate concerns of many of you, I have decided that Ronna McDaniel will not be an NBC News contributor,” Conde wrote in a memo to employees.

Trump blasted the network for axing McDaniel.

“These Radical Left Lunatics are CRAZY, and the top people at NBC ARE WEAK,” he wrote on his social media platform. “They were BROKEN and EMBARRASSED by LOW RATINGS, HIGHLY OVERPAID, ‘TALENT.’”


McDaniel, 50, is reportedly looking to hire a lawyer as a result of her firing, according to Puck News.

Trump has called McDaniel a “friend” in the past, and he’s praised her for helping deliver Michigan in his 2016 presidential contest against Hillary Clinton.

However, Trump suggested it was time for change at the RNC in the weeks leading up to McDaniel’s resignation.

She was replaced by Trump-backed North Carolina GOP chairman Michael Whatley, who was elected chair of the RNC earlier this month.

Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump was elected co-chair.
