If you were expecting the final debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden to be fairly moderated, you will be dissapointed to know that it was not.
Multiple blue checkmarks on Twitter pointed out the final tally of interruptions by the moderator and it wasn’t even close.
The numbers vary depending on who you ask, but perhaps the the final count had President Trump being interrupted 41 times to Joe Biden’s 8.
Kristen Welker didn’t even try and hide it…
What more could we have expected from Welker, who has a history of anti-Trump activism according to the Federalist:
NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker possesses all the signature features of a Beltway reporter. An Ivy League graduate, East Coast native, and once-registered Democrat as far as public records show, who has spent nearly a decade living in the District covering campaigns and the White House, made Welker, 44, the perfect fit for the anti-Trump Commission on Presidential Debates to moderate the third and final match-up between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.
Welker, however, whose well-established family has donated thousands to the Democrat who will be on stage Thursday night, has a long track record of antagonist reporting on the Trump White House: perpetuating the Russia hoax, protecting the president’s political opponents, and engaging in the kind of Democratic-friendly D.C. media coverage that has become standard among the self-righteous journalists, which in turn has undermined the credibility of the industry. After all, she scored the endorsement of CNN’s chief White House troll Jim Acosta.
“Mr. President, yes or no. Have you or are you now — have you ever worked for Russia? Yes or no?” Welker demanded during a January 2019 sparring match with the president. Just a short two months later, Special Counsel Robert Mueller would release his report, concluding a more than two-year investigation that found that conspiracy theories accusing Trump of operating as a Kremlin agent were just that, conspiracies and nothing more.
In 2018, Welker also charged the president with giving Russian President Vladimir Putin the “upper hand” during an overseas trip to Europe where Trump challenged nations in NATO to pay their fair share. On the same trip, Welker accused the president of being “hand in hand” with Putin.
When it comes to the far-left, four-member “Squad” in the House of Representatives, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, who are either self-proclaimed socialists or endorsed a socialist candidate, Welker has gone out of her way to downplay their extremism, calling them “self-proclaimed progressives.”
“They are not socialists,” Welker said ahead of a 2019 Trump campaign event in North Carolina.
