Yesterday, we reported that Lester Holt had been exposed as a liar hours after he effectively rigged Monday night’s debate for Hillary Clinton by repeatedly berating Donald Trump. Now, this move has come back to bite him in a big way…
A new poll from The Denver Post has revealed that over two thirds of those polled said Holt did a bad job moderating the debate. A whopping 67% said Holt was a terrible moderator, while only 33% supported him.
This came after Holt was exposed as a liar in one of the most contentious exchanges of the debate when he accused Trump of supporting the Iraq War when the United States began it. Though Trump denied these claims, Holt alleged that the GOP presidential nominee did indeed express support for the war in an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto.
Immediately after the debate, Cavuto shot Holt down once and for all by airing the interview in question, and it was immediately clear that Trump did indeed have his reservations about the war.
“You know, what happened to the days of Douglas MacArthur? I mean he would go in and attack. He wouldn’t talk. I mean we have to, you know, it’s sort of like either do it or don’t do it,” Trump said, according to Conservative Tribune.
“Well, he’s (Bush) either got to do something or not do something perhaps. Because perhaps he shouldn’t be doing it yet. Perhaps we should be waiting for the United Nations. You know, he’s under a lot of pressure,” Trump added, clearly unsure if invading Iraq was the right choice.
