No sooner had the first presidential debate concluded than the “expert analysis” began, on cable news, in every newspaper and in bars and living rooms across America. By playing the video again and again, conservatives and liberals spotted things they hoped would prove that their candidate was the winner, or had been sabotaged.
The most fascinating of these experts is a professional poker player, whose livlihood depends on being able to read his opponents’ “tells” and determine if other players are cheating. Sure enough, one was convinced that Hillary was in cahoots with the debate moderator:
Author and journalist Mike Cernovich reached out to poker pros via Twitter to see if Hillary was signalling Lester Holt with hand gestures during Monday’s debate.
Curious. Do the poker pros like @themouthmatusow see this as a “signal” to moderator Lestor Holt. https://t.co/3uQbpbhSQe

According to Katie McGuire at Right Wing News:
Clinton was accused of cheating by sending hand signals to the moderator Lester Holt. During the debate when Clinton wanted to signal Holt when she wanted the floor, she rubbed her face in a manner similar to a baseball manager.
According to True Pundit, she has not done this in any other debates during her career supporting the accusation that these were signals.
Of course, this is mere speculation, but would anyone put it past Crooked Hillary and her mainstream media cheerleaders to cook up a scam like this?
