In debate, Clinton gets no follow-up questions, Trump gets 6

Republican Donald Trump was kept on the defensive at the first presidential debate, in several instances having to debate the highly anticipated event's moderator as well as his Democratic opponent.

Trump was challenged on his answers Monday night at Hofstra University in New York at least six times by NBC's Lester Holt, according to the Washington Examiner's count. Hillary Clinton, meanwhile was no follow-up questions for the 90-minute debate.

In the entirety of the debate, the closest follow-up question Clinton was asked at the debate dealt with racial issues. She was asked the same question as Trump on how to heal racial divisions and then, after her answer, was asked how to improve whether she believed police "are implicitly biased against black people," a reference to a recent comment she made about "implicit bias" among police.

Leading up to the debate, there was a big push by the Clinton campaign and some media critics to get Holt to act as a live fact-checker at the debate, taking on a more aggressive and active role as a moderator, especially for Trump.

I have to listen to the liberal morons at work cry about how the media is so unfair to Clinton! Ready to quit my job to get away from these fools.

The debate questions seemed so scripted to make Clinton look good. When Trump spoke, he spoke with passion, and didn't sound like a politician. Every time Clinton spoke, it sounded like it had been rehearsed over and over. She sounded so fake and so much like a politician.

He got follow up questions because he failed to answer the original questions. Very disappointed.

Clinton didn't always answer the original questions either and changed the subject when she was challenged by her failures.

What do you expect from the MSM. Clinton was the "Bully" in the debate, before and during. It showed blatant rigged questions against Trump and for / pro Clinton. I hope Trump will improve for the next debate and no matter what the Moderator ask answer the question in four sentences and then attack Clintons failures. That is what Clinton and the Moderator done to Trump. I believe with out a doubt Trump "WON" the debate.
