At President Donald Trump’s NBC town hall on Thursday, moderator Savannah Guthrie challenged the president for retweeting a conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama ordered the murder of SEAL Team 6, saying, “You’re the president, you’re not someone’s crazy uncle.”
On spreading the conspiracy that Obama had SEAL Team 6 killed.
TRUMP: "That was a retweet! People can decide for themselves!"
GUTHRIE: "You're the president, you're not someone's crazy uncle."

I gotta say, Savannah Guthrie spoke for quite a lot of people with this exchange about Trump's retweeting of insane conspiracy theories:
Trump: "That was a retweet! People can decide for themselves!"
Guthrie: "You're the president, you're not someone's crazy uncle."
