It’s definitely on tonight, and while we can’t predict exactly how it will go, here are some things I’m pretty sure you can take for granted:
You’ll frequently be under the impression Trump is debating ‘moderator’ Lester Holt rather than Mrs. Clinton.
Matt Lauer was the moderator of the Commander in Chief forum and Lester Holt had to have noticed the gang stomping Matt Lauer got from his peers as well as his employer simply for asking Mrs. Clinton a few questions about her e-mail scandal. It didn’t matter that this was something obviously relevant in a forum on national security. Not only did he make her look bad, but he actually had a semblance of fairness when questioning Donald Trump.
And. We. Can’t. Have. That.
Rest assured that Lester Holt isn’t going to make the same mistake Matt Lauer did. He will be aggressive and partisan towards Trump and give Mrs. Clinton softballs if he knows what’s good for him. In fact, Lester Holt is already chest thumping and bragging to his colleagues that he’s going to do just that.
