There’s no question that the first debate between Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump was against Trump’s favor.
Full of hard exchanges, the questions were clearly biased. NBC anchor Lester Holt was the moderator, and he kept interrupting Trump to “fact check” him with liberal talking points.
For example, Holt said Donald Trump supported the Iraq War, but Trump never did. In fact, he was opposed to the war to the point that Trump and his friend Sean Hannity argued about it before the war started.
Ignoring that Hillary Clinton as a United States Senator from New York who voted for the war, Holt focused on how Trump supported the war during a past interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto.
Right after the debate, Cavuto set the record straight, playing the clip which shows Trump was unsure about the war:
“You know, what happened to the days of Douglas MacArthur? I mean he would go in and attack. He wouldn’t talk. I mean we have to, you know, it’s sort of like either do it or don’t do it.
Well, he’s (Bush) either got to do something or not do something perhaps. Because perhaps he shouldn’t be doing it yet. Perhaps we should be waiting for the United Nations. You know, he’s under a lot of pressure.”
Take a look at the clip before:
The 19 million people who watched that debate didn’t see the truth. A fair moderator would have asked why Clinton voted to authorize the war…But it is clear Holt was out to embarrass Trump.
