Lester Holt: The Third Debater?

At last night’s debate, Donald Trump faced off not just against Hillary Clinton, but against moderator Lester Holt.

The game of two-on-one saw Holt ask no questions about:
Hillary’s emails
The Clinton Foundation

While ignoring these issues, Holt grilled Trump on stop-and-frisk, 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.

Holt also repeatedly attempted to “fact check” on some of Trump’s positions, such as his claim to have opposed the Iraq War from the beginning. Holt interrupted Trump several times to interject, but rarely succeeded (and may have come across as weak and impotent).

The Twittersphere has taken note:

I hate the debates any way - people should have been paying attention all along to what Trump and Clinton have been doing and saying, then they would have absolutely no problem deciding who to vote for. Trump all the way - vote Trump!!

Some of us have been following Hillary's performance for over 30 years. It isn't pretty.

I think Donald did the right thing. By not bringing it up he made it clear Lester was a shill.

Had he brought the stuff up the media would have said he was just a bad loser of the debate.

They sabotaged his mike and he mentioned it and they claimed he was whining. Regardless of the footage of that way short mike.
