Last night was an all-out brawl at times, but not just between Donald and Hillary.
Lester Holt got some action in too, even though there had been repeated warnings for him to refrain from “fact-checking” during the debate. He had more than one Candy Crowley moment and gave one of the worst moderation jobs in recent memory.
From Heat Street, here’s some topics he left out—and the ridiculous ones he tried to pound Trump with:
At tonight’s debate, Donald Trump faced off not just against Hillary Clinton, but against moderator Lester Holt.
- 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.
Dumb @LesterHoltNBC was EXTREMELY bias during this debate
He did not question Crooked Hillary on Benghazi, Clinton Foundation & More!

Tax returns- ck
Birth Cert- ck
Emails? Health? Benghazi?
(Oops we ran out of time)

Critics agree, Lester Holt was extremely unfair. I guess it is true, you can’t spell Clinton without CNN.
Trump’s initial response, mobbed by the reporters, was to say that Lester had done a fine job, but later on he gave Holt a different grade:
