Lester Holt, the talentless biracial hack who reads the news on the Nothing But Clinton network, auditioned for the job of press secretary in a Clinton administration last night. I maintained my self-imposed boycott of all political television but the early reviews showed just how brazenly partisan the entire media is.
Trump Takes on Holt and Hillary…and the whole system
Donald Trump’s main opponent in the first presidential debate wasn’t Hillary Clinton. It was NBC anchor Lester Holt. Hillary, with forced smiles as brittle as china and an eerie fake laugh, continued her primary debate strategy of repeating canned talking points while waiting for the moderator to knock off her opponent. Hillary wasn’t there to debate, but to once again seem like the only possible option.
Lester Holt shows he doesn’t know the meaning of impartial
The ref not only made himself part of the game on Monday night, he ran up to the scrimmage line, then sacked the quarterback three times.
True, Hillary Clinton has answered a lot of these kinds of questions before, but the not in front of a huge national audience. For Holt to allow her to get away with saying, “”It was a mistake” on her usage of email doesn’t cut it, not from a guy who was willing to hammer Trump on a remark like “I just don’t think she has a presidential look.”
Five Times Lester Holt Shilled for Hillary Clinton at First Debate
Again and again, Holt asked Trump tough questions that were straight from the Clinton campaign’s talking points, and which were obvious set-ups for Clinton to attack (and for fact-checkers to pounce on whatever Trump asserted in his own defense).
Rudy Giuliani: ‘Lester Holt Should Be Ashamed Of Himself’
“Stop-and-frisk is being done tonight all over America,” Giuliani continued.
“It is perfectly constitutional. It is still good law. It is still constitutional law. And Lester Holt should be ashamed of himself for interfering. He doesn’t know the law. I know she [Clinton] doesn’t know the law because she failed the bar exam, but he should stop pretending he’s a lawyer.”
Holt Interrupted Trump WAY More Than Clinton In Debate
Holt interrupted Trump a record 41 times, either to “fact-check” the Republican nominee, or to ask a follow-up question. Clinton was only interrupted seven times during the course of the 90-minute debate.
Holt interrupted Trump the most during a particularly heated exchange about Trump’s stance on the Iraq war. Both candidates attempted to dodge their former stances. Holt challenged Trump in particular, cutting him off several times to assert the business mogul did indeed support the war in Iraq when it was popular.
AT THAT POINT I’D HAVE ASKED HIM IF HE’D LIKE TO GET A PODIUM AND TAKE HIS PLACE NEXT TO HILLARY…. BUT THAT’S JUST ME.
Trump: ‘The Best Person’ In Hillary’s Campaign ‘Is Mainstream Media’
During Monday’s presidential debate Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told moderator Lester Holt that “the best person” in Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s campaign “is mainstream media.”
Holt asked Trump, [A] lot of these judgment questions. You had supported the war in Iraq before the invasion. What makes your judgement –.” Trump cut in to say he didn’t support the war, and this was a “mainstream media nonsense put out by her, because she frankly, I think the best person in her campaign is mainstream media
