Donald Trump is known for being the unconventional candidate, for throwing out the political script, for blowing up the process and starting from scratch.
He just challenged Hillary to join him in blowing it up. If she only has the courage to accept.
Trump is fed up with the forum/debate process. Everyone is complaining the system is rigged—surprisingly on both sides.
In a candidates forum held on the Today Show, last week, many Hillary supporters were upset that the show’s Host, Matt Lauer, was too tough on Hillary by not tossing her the usual soft ball questions the Democrats have come to expect. Hard ball questions are supposed to be saved for Republicans, Libertarians and Conservatives, you see.
In a New York Post article Trump was quoted as saying:
Lauer was criticized by Democrats as being too tough on Clinton, after thoroughly grilling her about her home e-mail server. The “Today” host was also portrayed as being too soft on Trump, after he let the mogul’s incorrect assertion that he opposed the Iraq war from the outset go unchallenged.
But Trump said Monday that those criticizing Lauer are seeking to manipulate the presidential debates.
“The fact is, they are gaming the system,” Trump said of the critics. “And I think maybe we should have no moderator. Let Hillary and I sit there and just debate. I think the system is being rigged, so it’s going to be a very unfair debate.”
He added, “I can see it happening right now because everybody was saying, ‘He was soft on Trump,’ and now the new person is going to try and be really hard on Trump just to show the establishment what he can do. I think it’s very unfair what they are doing.”
Trump praised Lauer in his interview with CNBC. “I think he was professional and has been treated unfairly,” he said. “He was not nice to me, and he was tough. I answered them better than she did.”
The upcoming debate is to be held on Sept. 26 at Hofstra University in Hempstead, LI. and is due to be moderated by Lester Holt.
We know that the mainstream media isn’t going to give Trump a free pass on anything but they also may be taking a different tact in the way they deal with Hillary considering her recent, unsavory past. Let’s hope they hold Hillary’s feet to the fire a little more often!
