Lester Holt has certainly lived up to the expectations of his peers. I can’t say conservatives should be surprised, we are routinely treated unfairly by debate moderators, it’s hard for anyone to not be biased but especially for a group of people who have no moral compass.
Obviously, Hillary fights dirty, just look at were Bernie Sanders is sitting….out of the race because of this monster, I mean Hillary, cheated to get where she is. Now, she’s using her dirties tricks to steal the presidential seat. It’s as bad as we feared…
NBC News’ Lester Holt had his first “Candy Crowley” moment at the 2016 presidential election on Monday night. Clearly, he bowed to the pressure from the Hillary Clinton campaign and the liberal media.
Time after time, Holt asked Trump hard questions that were straight from the Clinton campaign’s talking points, and which were obvious set-ups for Clinton to attack (and for fact-checkers to pounce on whatever Trump asserted in his own defense).
After last night’s debate, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell issued the following statement about the debate and moderator/NBC Nightly News anchor, Lester Holt:
Lester Holt clearly heard the cries of his colleagues in the liberal media to be tough on Trump and ease up on Hillary loud and clear. Holt continually challenged, fact-checked, and interrupted Trump and not once challenged Hillary. Holt pounded Trump repeatedly on the birth certificate controversy, his position on Iraq, his tax returns, and whether or not Hillary looked presidential. Where were the questions on the Clinton Foundation or Benghazi or her email server? These are the questions that drive right to the heart of whether Hillary is ready to be president and yet viewers tuning in tonight heard nothing about these important issues. Lester Holt failed in his role as a moderator. Period.
See the five worst examples of the Liberal bias….
#1 Tax returns:
Holt never once asked Hillary about her e-mail scandal, about Benghazi, or about the Clinton Foundation and its dubious dealings. But he wasn’t so kind to Trump, he droned on and on about his tax returns, arguing — not asking — that there could be questionable information in them that the American public deserved to hear.
#2 Birther conspiracy theory:
Lester never asked Clinton about her previous racist statements, including, DRUM ROLL PLEASE… her “super-predator” remarks as First Lady, or her explicit appeal to “white Americans” in her 2008 primary campaign against Obama. Make no mistake he didn’t give Donald the same pass, he asked Trump about the Birther conspiracy theory and cast it as racist.
After some bickering between the candidates over the policy of “stop-and-frisk,” Holt gave his unwanted opinion to bolster Clinton’s point by stating, erroneously, that stop-and-frisk had ended in New York because it had been declared unconstitutional by a court. Good Ol’ Donald was prepared, though, he correctly countered the misleading statement by stating that the new mayor had canceled the policy before the litigation was over.
#4 “A presidential look:”
Towards the end of the debate, Holt questioned Trump about what he meant by saying Hillary Clinton did not have “a presidential look.” He did so after he calculatingly noted that Clinton had become “the first woman” to be nominated for president by a major political party, thus setting the stage for Trump to be a sexist. Then when Trump answered, Holt interrupted him, then gave Clinton a chance to respond to her talking points about Trump’s past comments on women.
#5 Iraq War:
The big question of about Trump’s support of the Iraq War has been widely debated. Hilariously enough, it’s beyond any doubt that Hillary supported it. Holt only represented one side of the debate, though, he asked Trump about his support, but never even asked Clinton about her own opinion on the subject.
Not to mention, did anyone notice that the audience repeatedly interjected — almost always in Clinton’s favor — and Holt did not bother to stop them, though it was against the rules. He only gleaned to the rules when it worked in his favor, he stopped the audience when there were cheers for Trump calling for Clinton’s emails.
Bow again, Lester Holt. You did your job….terribly.
America is royally screwed if voters are as dumb as the people below!
