Millions of Americans were furious on Monday when it became clear that moderator Lester Holt had rigged the first presidential debate for Hillary Clinton to beat Donald Trump. Now, a transcript of the debate has been released, and it confirms that it was indeed rigged.
According to Breitbart, the transcript reveals that Holt asked 15 questions of Trump and only 2 questions exclusively of Clinton. The analysis, which was posted on social media, takes an intense look at the 90-minute debate and reveals that Holt asked six questions to both candidates on top of the 15 he asked Trump and the 6 he asked Clinton.
Here are some excerpts from the analysis of the debate:
HILLARY CLINTON SPENT MORE TIME ATTACKING, WHILE DONALD TRUMP SPENT MORE TIME DISCUSSING SOLUTIONS
Clinton Positive Rhetoric: 10:17; Clinton Attacking Rhetoric: 17:17
Trump Positive Rhetoric: 10:54; Trump Attacking Rhetoric: 10:00
DONALD TRUMP WAS ASKED FOUR HIT QUESTIONS WHILE HILLARY CLINTON WAS ASKED ZERO
Question LESTER HOLT: Mr. Trump, we’re talking about the burden that American’s have to fay, yet you have not released your tax returns and the reason nominees have released their returns for decades is so voters will know if their potential president owes money to, who he owes it to and any business conflicts. Don’t American’s have a right to know if there are any conflicts of interest?
Question LESTER HOLT: The IRS says an audit of your taxes — you’re perfectly free to release your taxes during an audit. so the question, does the public’s right to know outweigh your personal –
Question LESTER HOLT: Mr. Trump, for five years, you perpetuated a false claim of the nation’s first black President was not a natural born citizen. You questioned his legitimacy. In the last couple of weeks you acknowledge what most Americans have accepted for years, the president was born in the United States. Can you tell us what took you so long?
Question LESTER HOLT: Mr. Trump, this year Secretary Clinton became the first woman nominated for president by a major party. Earlier this month you said she doesn’t have, ‘a presidential look.’ She’s standing here right now. What did you mean by that?
Clinton Hit Questions (Zero):
“Not available” – If that doesn’t sum up today’s media, we don’t know what does.
