Debates Were Fixed

Regarding the debates between Trump and Biden, Pence and Harris, and town hall debates: There is a debate commission, which selected moderators, that is currently made up of Democrats and “Non-Trumper Republicans.” The commission selected Susan Page of USA Today to moderate the Pence-Harris debate; Savannah Guthrie of NBC was chosen to moderate the Trump town hall event; and Kristen Walker of NBC was picked to moderate the most recent Trump-Biden debate. She interrupted President Trump 30 times but Biden only twice during their debate.

The Biden town hall debate was moderated by George Stephanopoulos of ABC, a Clinton supporter, who gave Biden “softball questions” and never interrupted Biden once.

In my opinion, this partisan debate commission should be disbanded!
