If viewers were paying attention at all last night, it was perfectly clear that Lester Holt’s moderation was nothing more than an attempted hit on Trump under the guise of being fair and balanced.
It was discovered beforehand, but the mainstream media refuses to talk about it.
Before the debate, Robby Mook, Clinton’s campaign manager, heaped pressure on Holt to constantly interrupt Trump, arguing that the debate was a “special circumstance,” that allowed him to “fact check” Trump on a whim, despite the fact that only candidates are allowed to challenge each other according to the Commission on Presidential Debates.
NBC insiders also let slip that Holt was “not going to be a potted plant” – in other words – he was going to insert his own bias into the debate rather than just moderating it fairly.
“I don’t think it’s a good idea to get the moderator into essentially serving as the Encyclopedia Britannica,” the executive director of the Commission on Presidential Debates, Janet Brown, told CNN on Sunday.
Yet that’s exactly what Holt did.
He also allowed the audience to laugh at four separate jokes made by Hillary while urging them to be silent after one Trump joke.
While it would be easy for Hillary supporters to dismiss all this as whining, the list of issues that Holt managed to avoid when he had an opportunity to question Clinton is longer than a grocery list.
Instead, the moderator spent an inordinate amount of time discussing Trump’s tax returns and the “birther conspiracy,” hardly key issues when it comes to the future of the country.
“Holt went for the birther issue with Trump, which isn’t off the table but has very little relevance to what faces our next president,” wrote Stephen Kruiser. “Had Hillary brought it up it would have been fine. For Holt to interject it during what was supposed to be a substantive discussion on race relations made it seem as if he were being fed questions directly from Clinton HQ.”
Holt also failed to “fact check” Hillary on her biggest lie of the night, her claim that she was against the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).
Even with the incredible amount of bias shown by Holt in Hillary’s favor, CNN still had to rig its own poll in order to announce that Hillary had won the debate.
Clearly the leftist media did everything they could to rig the debate against Trump. Rudy Giuliani was extremely vocal about it on Fox & Friends this morning saying Holt should be ashamed of himself for how me handled the debate and we couldn’t agree more with Giuliani.
Paul Joseph Watson predicted the entire thing many hours before the debate…
Called it beforehand
