You’ll Be LIVID When You See the Moderators for the Next Debate…

UGH! SERIOUSLY? Not again….

Every four years it’s the same thing all over again, the Republican presidential candidate walks into a giant trap: the debates.

The supposedly non-biased Commission on Presidential Debates leans decidedly left. The co-chairs of the commission include former GOP Chairman Frank Fahrenkopf, Jr., and a former Clinton Press Secretary, Mike McCurry. Unfortunately, neither of these gentlemen is a conservative and both are probably privately supporting Hillary Clinton for president.

It’s obvious that the Presidential Debates are anything but impartial against conservatives like Trump. Take a look at the 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. He faced unfair treatment with Candy Crowley, Romney wasn’t allowed the opportunity to make a final statement, even though it was outlined in the rules. Crowley even went as far as to support Obama in a dispute with Romney about the terrorist attack in Benghazi. It is not a moderator’s job to take sides, they are supposed to be objective.

For the 2016 debates, the commission has once again chosen liberal moderators, with the exception of Chris Wallace of Fox News, who is a truly objective journalist. The liberals include Lester Holt of NBC, Anderson Cooper of CNN, and Elaine Quijano of CBS, and Martha Raddatz of ABC, who moderated a debate in 2012.

It should be noted that Republicans have long been skeptical of Raddatz since President Obama attended her wedding in 1991. Not surprisingly, she invited President Obama to her wedding. In addition, Raddatz’s husband was appointed by Obama to the FCC, so there should be no confusion about her allegiances. Her performance in the 2012 Vice Presidential debate was atrocious, as the incumbent, Joe Biden was allowed to completely dominate his GOP opponent, Representative Paul Ryan, and interrupt frequently.

Elaine Quijano has used her position on CBS to advocate for illegal aliens and the threat of global warming. She claimed that this threat could cause a 10-foot increase in sea levels, which would put “much of South Florida underwater.” Since GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has been tough on the issue of illegal immigration and believes that global warming is a hoax, it is doubtful that a moderator who holds such opposing views will be fair and balanced.

Lester Holt surely leans left and his feelings were exposed after President Obama’s recent speech to the Democratic National Convention. He described it as “a powerful arc embracing hope and optimism.” Undoubtedly, Holt would never describe a Donald Trump speech in such a manner.

The other moderator, Anderson Cooper, is clearly another liberal. For years, he has advocated for gay rights and same sex marriage. For example, in the aftermath of the terrorist attack in Orlando Florida, Cooper interviewed Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. He used the opportunity to condemn her for opposing gay marriage, a view a liberal like Cooper believes is unacceptable.

It’s infuriating that Hillary will have such a HUGE advantage while liberal moderators control the presidential debates. It’s no surprise to Trump, though, he knows that the commission is biased against him. Back in July, he blasted the commission when the announcement was made that two of the debates were scheduled against NFL games. Trump tweeted to his followers: “As usual, Hillary and the Dems are trying to rig the debates so 2 are up against major NFL games.”

Here’s to hoping that Trump will be given ample opportunities in the debates. Despite the commission’s questionable scheduling and moderator selection, Trump should do well in these upcoming debates as long as he is treated fairly.
