The Moderator--The Third Debater

   At the debate, Donald Trump faced off not just against Hillary Clinton, but against moderator Lester Holt.  Holt became the third debater.

The game of two-on-one, saw Holt ask no questions about the vulnerable places of Hillary such as:


Hillary’s emails
Benghazi
The Clinton Foundation

While ignoring these issues, Holt grilled Trump on, the birther story, his comments about women, his many bankruptcies, why he hasn’t released his tax returns — and a host of other issues the media sees as unfriendly to the Republican candidate.

After being told that he was not to be the “fact checker” but to leave it to the candidates, Holt still repeatedly and blatantly attempted to “fact check” on a number of Trump’s positions, such as his claim to have opposed the Iraq War from the beginning and on stop-and- frisk. Holt interrupted Trump several times to interject, but rarely succeeded.  Still he deliberately created problems. for Trump.  However, while Romney caved before Candy Crowley, Trump at least pushed back with vigor.      From Heat Street

Holt's opening statement sounded like it came out of Obama's next book about himself. He made Candy Crawley (sp) look like an Independent.

Holt interrupted Trump 41 times. Hillary 7 times.

I would like to know the pharmaceutical cocktail Hillary was given prior to the debate. She definitely appeared medicated. It looked like a combination of an amphetamine and Alprazolam. I am guessing it was intravenous with saline for hours just prior to the debate.
Also, she looked like Mrs Potato Head on screen.

Donald interrupted Hillary more than 50 times.

To this day, no liberal has been able to say how they can overlook Hillary's helping her "husband" try and cover up rape, molestation, affairs, and exhibitionism in the work place. Either they don't care or they don't believe yet none will say. They just go mute.

Forgiveness. Christian family values.

So you believe it to be true, you just want to forgive and move on?

Sarkazein said...

It would not be up to me to forgive, or you for that matter. It would be up to Bill and Hillary Clinton's victims.

Rape cover up vs. Miss Piggy comment.... unbelievable! That's why I say Liberalism is a mental disorder.

On outnumbered today the head of WSJ explained why so many of Hillary scandals have not touched her. He said any time a scandal comes up the Dems respond with "Americans are tired of all that? They want to move on". Tonight when Dems were interviewed, that is exactly what they said. I had missed that subterfuge until he pointed it out. Anon above was trying something similar.

The "question" you asked was, "how does a wife stay with her flawed husband?" Secondly, which Hillary "scandals" have not been investigated, discussed, unfairly prolonged ad infinite um?

The moderators of he next debate Sunday will use 30 questions with the most online votes. I just checked the top 30 and they are mostly questions submitted by liberals pushing liberal issues like gun control. climate change, access to abortions and election financing. Only two or three questions from a conservative point of view.

Anyone can vote for as many questions as you like. There are hundreds of proposed questions. To vote, go to PresidentialOpenQuestions.com!
