Skip to comments.Donald Trump Now Says First Debate Was ‘Rigged'
Posted on 09/29/2016 1:34:53 PM PDT by Red Steel
In a speech Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump called the first presidential debate with Hillary Clinton rigged, and seemed to place much of the blame on the moderator, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt.
Then I had to put up with the anchor, and fight the anchor all the time on everything I said, Trump said. What a rigged deal.
The comments represent a shift from the morning after the debate, when Trump told Fox and Friends I thought Lester was really good for the half
I thought he was fine. Nothing outstanding. He gave me very unfair questions at the end, last three or four questions. Im not complaining.
Oh yeah and he still won it.
It was. Trump had to go against Hillary and Holt.
I’m sure he’s seen the same videos of the signaling and the Cleaner Man that we have.
He’s right. It was rigged. And he probably will get hammered by CNN for seemingly changing his mind. It’s all part of doing business...
I’m getting too angry by post after post from liberal sites.
I know that’s what we’re here for, to get that info so we can fight it.
But it’s taken it’s toll.
You more even tempered guys handle it best.
Even tempered is NOT a word to describe me.
Already have one finger in a splint after debate.
It is good for Trump to call out Holt and the Debate Commission in their rigging of the debate and bring it to the attention of voters.
Holt-NBC gave Clinton the questions IN ADVANCE,
gave her simple questions,
followed her face-finger signals,
and gave her a special podium.
====> Holt is a stinking cheater. <====
Just like the previous NBC Anchor, NBC is tainted
as a lying stinking medium that cannot be trusted.
This is what the left media did to Lester Holt for weeks following the Lauer forum. Now they’re mocking Trump as a conspiracy theorist.
He should now go after the next two mediator and how will they rig the debate? Say CNN is a bias and bigot network. No credibility. In the tank for Hillary. What signals will they use? Are they to let America know or protect Hillary. Tell them he won’t let a Candy Holt happen again. Either they are fair and balanced for he will call them out.
I was tipped off that the debate was rigged when Lester Holt started interrupting Mr. Trump when he was making the conclusion to his answer to his question. Every time Mr. Trump was starting to make an excellent point, Holt would butt in. Fortunately, Trump plowed through; not letting Holt shut him down.
At some point before the next debate Trump should point out the ways Hillary cheats, maybe just show his followers at some rally, or make a complaint to the debate board.
Show pictures of her earpiece at the CIC found
Show the YouTube that documents her hand-face-scratching signals to Lester Holt.
The Cleaner cleaning up notes fed to her, Holt/Clinton collusion using hand signals, Hillary earpiece, mini teleprompter, etc... If you look at one of the podium videos, there is a guy about 10-15 minutes after everyone leaves the stage removing some sort of electronic device/receiver from Hillary’s lectern. It was caught on Cspan. It’s unbelievable.
There was no debate. It was Hillry and Holt asking Trump about stuff he supposedly said.
Of course the debates are rigged, every debate in previous years was rigged to some extent, what with the crop of moderators in hand. Why was Trump naïve about this?
So what are Trump camp and RNC going to do about the next debate(s)?
He definitely needs to skip the remaining two debates unless drastic changes/safe guards are instituted.
The way general election presidential debates are currently constituted, the GOP nominee automatically goes into battle as a decided underdog!!!
Why not insist on moderators such as Sharyl Attkinson, Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, for a change???!!!
Actually, Cankles gave Lester Stepin Fetchit Dolt the question just before the debate.
He’s also setting the next debate table to go hard on Anderson Cooper seeing hand signals from Hillary, and whoever the other people talking to her though earpieces, or an OLEP display feeding her BS lines placed on her lectern.
