Republican nominee Donald Trump squared off with Democrat Hillary Clinton on Sunday, the debate covered a wide array of topics, from Trump’s tape to each candidate’s energy plan.
But one thing was obvious which was the biased moderators.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz were handling the questions. Instead of letting Trump explain his positions, the liberal anchors chose to attack and interrupt him.
Trump finally had enough at one point during the debate and turned to Cooper, demanding to know why Cooper hadn’t asked about Clinton’s email scandal.
Raddatz brought up the email issue, but the moderators chose not to linger on it like they did on the tapes of Trump speaking in a private conversation.
Trump told Cooper that the Hillary email issue “hasn’t been finished at all,” clearly irritated that the moderators were choosing to factor Clinton by giving her an easy pass on her scandal.
“One-on-three,” Trump said into the microphone, while turning his back as Cooper attempted to move to the next question.
The “one-on-three” remark was a stroke of brilliance on Trump’s part because throughout the debate, whenever the moderators went after him and it was often, the audience was reminded of that comment.
This wasn’t the only time the moderators were biased against Trump. At one point during the debate, Raddatz even had a “Candy Crowley” moment when she tried to lecture Trump about Syrian foreign policy.
The American people clearly saw how biased the media really is. Clinton’s lies and lack of answers were ignored by the moderators, who attacked Trump instead.
Number of times moderators interrupted each candidate in first half of Debate #2
• Trump: 14
• Clinton: 2
Still counting for second half…

Luckily, Trump still managed to come out on top. Despite the audio leak and being outnumbered on the stage, Trump gave a great performance that is going to help steady his campaign.
