NBC repositioned ‘nodding lady’ Mayra Joli behind President during town hall without realizing she supports him

Arguably the biggest sensation to come out of the debacle of a town hall NBC had with President Trump was the so-called “nodding lady.” Positioned directly behind the President’s left shoulder for one of the most widely used camera angles, she was applauded by some and attacked by others for nodding her head and displaying thumbs up in agreement when the President answered many of the attack questions posed to him by Savannah Guthrie. But she wasn’t originally positioned there. Before the town hall began, a Caucasian lady was originally positioned there. NBC found Mayra Joli and put her in that prominent spot instead. Now, it would not be a stretch based on their clear bias against the President that they wanted to put someone in the spot very visible to the camera who would be against him. But they didn’t ask Joli, moving her solely based on her appearance. Joli is Black. EXCLUSIVE: Did @nbc think @JoliMayra was a democrat when they switched her to sit behind @realDonaldTrump? SURPRISE > She's a supporter of the President! 🇺🇸 Watch the FULL interview with @DavidBrodyCBN on https://t.co/KQwlB6Ky3L.#NoddingLady #TrumpTownHall pic.twitter.com/zoHOxvnmmE — Real America's Voice (@RealAVNews) October 16, 2020 Likely to the chagrin of NBC producers of the show, Joli is a Trump supporter. She gave no indication of that before she was switched with the woman who was originally in that spot, but it seems likely NBC made an assumption based on the color of her skin that she doesn’t support the President despite the fact that a record 40% of Black voters have a favorable opinion of him. Joli appeared on Real America’s Voice News to discuss the experience. She was cordial, not accusing NBC of the stereotyping they likely used to make their decision to move her there. Very delightful lady. COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat. Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it. Connect with one of hundreds of physicians nationwide who believe in HCQ as a prophylaxis and treatment for COVID-19. When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that. Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated. The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above. Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going. American Conservative Movement Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
