In St. Louis, moderators Raddatz, Cooper interrupt, talk over and even debate Trump

Cooper & RaddatzIn the baseball playoffs, three strikes means a batter is finished. In the presidential debates, it means the media are just getting started. Three debates (this was the second presidential debate, a vice-presidential debate was held on October 4) – three different sets of biased moderators.

Sunday night’s moderators Anderson Cooper, from CNN, and Martha Raddatz, from ABC, virtually took the field wearing blue jerseys with “I’m with her” on the back. Just as in baseball, candidates and moderators certainly used their bats. Both candidates talked about the other’s treatment of women and neither looked good. Clinton questioned Trump’s “fitness to be our president” and Trump countered with naming the victims of Bill Clinton’s sexual advances and saying “I think she should be ashamed of herself” about how they were treated.

Left-wing Politco called the debate “brutal” and former politcal reporter Ron Fournier called it “depressing.” CNN’s senior media correspondent Brian Stelter asked, “Where have I seen this version of Trump before? Oh. Just remembered,” as he tweeted out images of Trump from the days when he was involved in pro wrestling. CBS’s Bob Schieffer called it “WrestleMania.” But the liberal media who wanted to smack Trump around clearly failed.

A Drudge Report headline leading up to the debate said it best: “TONIGHT: TRUMP VS. WORLD.” That was certainly the case as moderators interrupted, talked over and at one point even debated Trump.

Cooper started the fireworks on the second question with four follow-up questions attempting to skewer Trump on the latest video controversy about offensive things he said on an open mic. That set the tone for the evening and it wasn’t a neutral one. The interruptions were bad. The outright speaking for Clinton was worse.

    Like a martial arts fighter taking on multiple opponents and was still standing tall afterwards! Trump is a fighter!

  • Janis

    And here I went into watching the debate believing that Hillary would have the most annoying voice on the planet….Martha Raddatz now takes the first place finish.

    …and it all backfired. Donald Trump came across really well in Sunday night’s debate. The moderators helped Trump more than they hurt him. I’m sure that wasn’t their intention but he managed to deal with their sex tape questions and move on. Although I don’t endorse what was said on the tapes, I think he neutralized a lot of concerns in his response. He then moved on. By the end of this week it is likely the taped sex remarks will be gone from the news cycle.

    Raddatz and Cooper are complete a–holes. They were told by CNN exec’s to slam Trump and they tried, but failed.

  • The dirty little secret is Mr. Trump’s locker room comments will assure every red blooded Democrat male will now vote for Mr. Trump.

  • Dan

    Raddatz would be described as that vulgar “c” word. And I don’t mean the “c” that Hillary couldn’t understand meant classified.

  • Betty

    Anderson Cooper is always for Hillory and the liberals

  • David Tierney

    Why is it, every debate has leftist a-holes as moderators. This is supposed to be a debate between Trump and Clinton, not Trump against Clinton, Holt, Radatz, Cooper, Media, et al. How dumb do the Democrats think we really are? We have been seeing this for more than 30 years. We see what you in the media are doing and I certainly wish every Republican supporter would boycott these scumbag Media. What ever happened to journalists like Cronkite and Murrow? Now we have separatists tellinpg us what they want us to hear. Not giving the truth but giving us the propaganda. We do not live in China or Russia yet but if Hillary is elected we soon will.] I hope you all have the translation app on your phones.

    • Karll

      Why? Because the moderators are always supposed to be
      “journalists” for some reason, and 95% of the “media” are
      merely shills for the democrat party.
      I agree on Republicans shunning interviews with the major networks,
      but most of THEM are RINOs.

      • David Tierney

        Once upon a time, not very long ago really, these people were real journalists. Now they just read what their station owners want them to read. They travel to a war zone and suddenly are called journalists, even though they have given out troop positions, bombing raid times and places, Covert op’s names and Stations. They are no more a journalist than you or me.
        They are a joke and like Obama have become the laughing stock of the free world. The only reason I watch a news cast today is to see what lies they are delivering.

  • Oldawg70

    This debate gave me hope, but “THEY” control the MSM and this is war! We won virtually every major battle in VietNam yet the Liberal Political Whores forced us to leave with our tail between our legs! THEY are counting on us to again become complacent, then strike! This is a fight to the death and we better act accordingly! Apathy at this stage of the game will result in the total loss of what little freedom we still perceive to exist!

    • Karll

      If the majority of those Americans who love their country and
      normally don’t bother to vote would simply get off their butts,
      register and vote against the commie party…….

      • Oldawg70

        Amen Karll… Amazed at how many people out there don’t have a clue what the Communist Party is doing to this country. Just do not see this ending peacefully!

  • rodstew

    ….and all the brain-dead trained seals clapped in unison when the master shillary smiled and lied again and again. I think a most telling moment was when Trump admonished the obummer/shillary administration for WARNING ISIS LEADERS TO GET OUT OF TOWN AS THEY WERE GOING TO ATTACK IN 3 WEEKS. The idiot raddatz “came to the obummer/shillary defense” when she said, “They do that so that civilians can get out of town.” That’s how stupid leftists are. She never realized that the ISIS leaders might just be as smart as the civilians and leave town, too.

  • nokabosh

    Hillary is a goner. The flies knew.

  • Robert Early

    Anderson had devolved into nothing more than a leftist flunky and jerk. I hope he is out of business soon.

  • Estoban

    Anderson Cooper is the highest profile foul-mouthed left wing slob in the MSM. Fortunately the predator Clintons had too many prior victims in the audience for Hillary to lie her way out.

  • James in Texas

    A “Mommies Boy” and a “AllBarackChannel” lady………..”What did you expect from two Liberals who make their living carrying water for the Liberals and Socialists”!

    • Karll

      Trump shut them down beautifully.

      • James in Texas

        Yes, he did! But, today the trolls are out in a frenzy trying to tell the world that Madame Liar has been upset by that mean ole Trump! As we say here in Texas……”Kiss my Grits!”

  • Connie Alsip

    KOed the Butcher of Benghazi! Anderson and Raddatz were clearly MSM shills, whose obvious bias was noted AND BOOED by America. #HillNO #TrumpPenceIn2016

  • Mike Tanco

    Raddatz was the most obvious at questioning Trump. She even got into the debate over an issue which is a no-no.
    I just hope the American people want change because Hillary will continue what Obama has started and the results will be disastrous.

    • Karll

      The trick is to get the normally silent % of the population OFF their butts and Voting against the status quo!

      • Rodney Steward

        BINGO!!

  • Karll

    The “journalist” moderators were largely ineffective at rattling
    Trump in that second debate. Donald pretty much dismissed
    them and called them on their bias.
    I thought Trump did a really great job.

  • Leslie Woodhull

    Trump clearly, completely won last night. Clinton looked exactly like what she is-old, sick and without energy. She got blown out of the water last night. Maybe it was finally the truth hitting home. We haven’t been fooled and we have not forgotten all of the crimes she has committed, & all of the lies she has told, all of the abuse she had delivered finally hit home. She was completely defeated. I literally saw the lights go out in her eyes when he told her that if elected he would appoint a special prosecutor to look into her situation. She looked angry, but she also looked scared spitless. What you saw was her lies being completely obliterated. Trump is going to win BIG, perhaps by the biggest margin in history.

    • Karll

      Oh, but he said “grab them by the pussy”, so I guess he
      should be shot or something. LOL!

      • PatriotGal

        LOL!!! Yup, words kill – but not actions like leaving our four heroes to be slaughtered in Banghazi.

      • Duke-Jinx

        Bet hillary says those same words daily. …ask huma.

      • David Tierney

        Exactly, every guy has heard or said nearly the same stuff in every locker room in every school or gym in the world. That’s what guys do. It doesn’t mean they don’t respect women. It certainly doesn’t make them rapists, like Bill C.
        It only builds and smooths their egos. Nothing more, nothing less. All talk. Actions speak louder than words, just ask the 4 (at least) victims of Bill Clinton.
        At the time, Hillary could not care less that Bill raped women. She probably encouraged him as we know, she is gay. She has wanted the White House since she got to College. Bill was her stepping stone. But I’ll bet she’s sorry for one thing and one thing only, that she let Bill be a Rapist and abuser of women. Because it is kicking her in the ass now.

      Biographers warn Trump is about to get even more racist as his campaign sinks into the dustbin of history

      ../.

  • Hillary dodged every questiin which needed a direct answer. She lied again about the emails. She was Sec. Of Stste when Obama drew the red line in the sans. She had no answer fof Bill’s comments on Obamacare. In fact Hillary continued her lie and no answer policy.

    • but she came across as a liar. That is not good for her. Did he not raise the matter that she told Goldman Sachs that it was wise to have both public and private policies for the same issue so as not to upset voters? if he didn’t, he needs his team to comb through those wikileaks documents. She hangs herself in those speeches.

      • Karll

        She brought up the Russians and Donald’s supposed link to them. Huh? They’re YOUR statements and emails, bich!

        • Rodney Steward

          I don’t know why Trump never brings up her Uranium deal she made with Russia, she made the deal with them while she was SOTS, she sold them 20% of our Uranium!

          • Karll

            Agreed. He had a perfect opportunity to do that last night, but
            I’m not going to criticize the great job he did.

      • PatriotGal

        Loved how Mr. Trump threw Honest Abraham Lincoln back in her lying lap after she tried to liken herself to Lincoln – NO COMPARISON!!!

    • Rodney Steward

      Her whole life is a lie!!

    • David Tierney

      Lies and omissions has been her style for over 40 years. Probably before that.

  • Edgardo L. Perez-De Leon

    In my opinion the only wrong thing that Trump did at the debate was not to ask Hillary to apologize her victims of her attacks when she defended a rapist and to the victims of rape by Bill Clinton, who she threatened personally with murder. I disagree with Trump on many policy issues –specially being soft on the globalist content of Hillary’s speech to the Brazilian bankers leaked last week– because I am in the left but I disagree more with Hillary, specially on how she plans to handle Russia, Iran and Syria in the middle east, short of saying “I am going to nuke Putin”. She is so delusional that she believes that war with Russia is not going to be a thermonuclear war involving China, or believe that we are so stupids to believe that her intentions is not to depopulate the planet, the agenda of the One World Order proponents. I would prefer to vote for the Green Party or not vote at all after she cheated on Bernie Sanders, but that is voting for Hillary. I will vote for Trump with no hesitation..

  • even with all the bias…trump slammed clinton and did damage.

    • Karll

      The guy who wrote “The Art of the Come Back” proves that his actions match his words.

    • 7papa7

      It also showed that Raddatz and Cooper were far to inept to be the moderators. It does show a lot about Trumps character over hillarys. Trump was willing to walk into the lions den and hillary I am sure would not have allowed moderators like Rush, Hannity or Mark Levin.
