Trump Campaign Exposes Second Debate Moderator’s MASSIVE Anti-Trump Bias

The Trump campaign is sounding the alarms over the anti-Trump bias harbored by second debate moderator Steve Scully.

The current C-SPAN anchor once interned for Biden, worked for the late-Ted Kennedy, and tweeted out an op-ed titled “No, Not Trump, Not Ever.”

According to Fox News:

Steve Scully, who serves as a host for C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal,” interned for Biden after coming to Washington, D.C. as a student, according to Marie Claire. He later worked as a staff assistant for the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., a Democratic icon who was honored at the party’s 2012 convention.

He also previously tweeted a New York Times op-ed titled, “No, Not Trump, Not Ever.” In it, the Times’ David Brooks concludes: “Trump’s supporters deserve respect. They are left out of this economy. But Trump himself? No, not Trump, not ever.”

Scully’s past provoked criticism from some and concerns about potential bias at the debate, which is scheduled for Oct. 15.  “How is this even possible?” Dan Gainor, vice president of the conservative Media Research Center, asked Fox News. “When they picked the moderator did they try to ensure that it would be biased to benefit Biden? This is the equivalent of giving the Democrats home-field advantage.”

At the beginning of September, Scully did an interview in which he committed to being fair “across the board.” He said his training as a backup moderator in 2016 helped him prepare for his role this election. Scully’s debate will be a townhall format at the Center for the Performing Arts in Miami, Florida.

Many bemoaned the bias exhibited by Fox News’ Chris Wallace but it appears he will be challenged for the most biased moderator of the 2020 debates by Scully.

You mean like Trump, he has been a Democrat for longer than he has been a ‘Republican’. If Trump thought that returning to the Democratic party would win him a second term he would do it. He has that kind of integrity.

Let’s face it, there isn’t any anchor in the MSM that is not a left leaning liberal. If there was, they would not be working for any of the major networks. Yes there are a few opinion editors on FOX (Hannity & Carlson) but they would never be approved to be debate moderators by the libs. It always seems to be thir way or the highway.

Since the DNC owns most of the MSM, it’s the DNC who decides who moderates.

So lets begin with the definition of a “Discussion Moderator”.
A discussion moderator or debate moderator is a person whose role is to act as a NEUTRAL participant in a debate or discussion, holds participants to time limits and tries to keep them from straying off the topic of the questions being raised in the debate.
Putting someone such as Mr. Scully in as a moderator being that he has proven himself to be hardcore anti-trump individual goes against the most important part of being a moderator.
HE IS FAR FROM BEING NEUTRAL!!

Look up the definition and explain to me why the lack of intelligence on whom ever is deciding who the moderator will be are doing a piss poor job or is it their plan all along!!

I will say with pride….”PRESIDENT TRUMP 2020…FOUR MORE YEARS!!

This is outrageous. Any one with even half a brain would have disqualified Steve Scully. His quote of; “No not Trump. Not Ever.” would have been enough reason for his disqualification if you were dealing with “SANE” people.

I have a better idea. Lets have Steve Mnuchin or Betsy Devos moderate the debate. This makes about as much sense as Steve Scully.

What is it with the corrupt media. First they pick that little weasel Chris Wallace and now they want another little weasel in Steve Scully. Seems like the corrupt media has no shortage of little weasel liberals running around with nothing to do.

If I were the President I would not agree to a debate with Joe Biden with another one of his cronies involved in the moderating. He should be able to have his own choice of a moderator for one of the debates, which should be Tucker Carlson, Judge Jeannine, or Laura Ingraham, or Sean Hannity.

This is not even the equivalent of “home field advantage”! Even with home field advantage, a great deal depends on the fairness and competence of the officials of the game – irregardless whether it be football, baseball, soccer, or anything else! THIS is nothing more than an AMBUSH!!! I don’t know exactly who chooses these so-called “moderators”, but there ought to be SOMETHING SOMEWHERE to lodge a dispute BEFORE a ‘debate’ takes place!!! Talk about ‘vetting’ a judge, how about ‘VETTING” these moderators!!!!!
These “Moderators” are making these Presidential Debates into a TRAVESTY of the VILEST AND MOST DESPICABLE NATURE!

Just so damn hard to watch the stupidity of the communist left, or democrats if you prefer. I just can’t stand fools that think communism is a good thing. You have to be morally, ethically, and severely challenged mentally to think communist butchery is a good thing. Only the communists in charge enjoy prosperity, EVERYONE ELSE SUFFERS IN POVERTY, EVERYONE. So you blm, antifa creeps, and other useful IDIOTS like you, will be trampled into the dung heaps that communism creates. You will be the first extinguished because you are STUPID, you believe the great lies of the left.

Why even have a moderator? Let the two participants ask each other questions they believe to be important and then sit back and watch the fireworks. A loud bell and flashing light could be used to set the time limits;

Who the hell is responsible for selecting the moderators? What’s wrong with the Republican Party for allowing such biased moderators. What I saw in “Giggles” Biden was a repeat of the shoddy treatment given Paul Ryan when he tried to conduct a responsible and mature debate with “Giggles.” In my opinion, President Trump should firmly reject these obviously left-wing moderators and if those responsible for selecting them refuse, President Trump should walk away from the farce.

The President needs to tell them change the moderator or He will not turn up for the debate and hold a rally instead as long as a demon-rat is the moderator it will never be a fear debate.
