Some “Today” show viewers are frustrated with the way Savannah Guthrie handled interviews with Nick Sandmann and Nathan Phillips. Critics said her interview with “MAGA teen” Sandmann was soft and didn’t interrogate his unapologetic narrative about the event, which was issued by a public relations firm.
