Here's A List Of Lester Holt's Incredibly Biased Questions

Debate moderator Lester Holt showed extreme bias in favor of Hillary Clinton during last night's debate.

While he misleadingly "fact checked" Trump multiple times and asked Trump multiple "gotcha" questions, he failed to fact check Hillary Clinton even once. Holt also failed to ask Clinton about her email scandals, Clinton Foundation pay-for-play schemes, her ailing health, Benghazi, her vote for the war in Iraq and her disastrous intervention in Libya which helped give rise to ISIS.

A Reddit user at r/The_Donald graciously typed out all of Lester Holt's joint questions and much of his commentary. It's remarkable seeing it all in one place.
Joint Questions:

"Why are you a better choice than your opponent to create the kinds of jobs that will put more money into the pockets of American works?"

"Secretary Clinton, you’re calling for a tax increase on the wealthiest Americans. I’d like you to further defend that. And, Mr. Trump, you’re calling for tax cuts for the wealthy. I’d like you to defend that."
This is nonsense. Clinton has a lifetime of supporting tax raises for all Americans, Trump's plan is a tax cut for all Americans, he's actually going to raise taxes on rich hedge funders who are pouring money into Clinton's war chest.

"Race has been a big issue in this campaign, and one of you is going to have to bridge a very wide and bitter gap."

"So how do you heal the divide?"

"Our institutions are under cyber attack, and our secrets are being stolen. So my question is, who’s behind it? And how do we fight it?"
It's impossible to know who is "behind" every cyber attack as hackers hide their tracks through sophisticated routing techniques. This is a stupid question meant only to give Hillary a chance to say "Muh Russia" or "Muh Putin."
"I’ll ask this to both of you. Tell us specifically how you would prevent homegrown attacks by American citizens."
Note he says by "American citizens," this is to prevent Trump from talking about his popular plans to close the borders to terrorists and give Clinton cover over the fact she wants to flood our nation with "refugees" who are currently committing terrorism all over Europe and wreaking havoc here in the USA.
"On nuclear weapons, President Obama reportedly considered changing the nation’s longstanding policy on first use. Do you support the current policy?"
There's no way even 5% of people watching the debate had any idea what he's even talking about here. Why not talk about the most important issue facing America -- mass immigration -- which is Trump's strong suit and the most radical difference between the two candidates?
"Are you willing to accept the outcome as the will of the voters?"

Trump Directed Commentary & Questions:

"You’ve talked about creating 25 million jobs, and you’ve promised to bring back millions of jobs for Americans. How are you going to bring back the industries that have left this country for cheaper labor overseas? How, specifically, are you going to tell American manufacturers that you have to come back?"

"Mr. Trump, we’re talking about the burden that Americans have to pay, yet you have not released your tax returns. And the reason nominees have released their returns for decades is so that voters will know if their potential president owes money to — who he owes it to and any business conflicts. Don’t Americans have a right to know if there are any conflicts of interest?"
LOL! Better not mention Hillary Clinton's "conflict of interest" selling access at the State Department.
"The IRS says an audit of your taxes — you’re perfectly free to release your taxes during an audit. And so the question, does the public’s right to know outweigh your personal…"
Hillary was free to release the 33,000 emails she deleted.
"Stop-and-frisk was ruled unconstitutional in New York, because it largely singled out black and Hispanic young men."
These laws can always be bent to be made constitutional, Mayor De Blasio wasn't interested in continuing the policy and failed to litigate in its favor, cases of homicide, rape, and robbery are now rising.
"The argument is that it’s a form of racial profiling."

"Mr. Trump, for five years, you perpetuated a false claim that the nation’s first black president was not a natural-born citizen. You questioned his legitimacy. In the last couple of weeks, you acknowledged what most Americans have accepted for years: The president was born in the United States. Can you tell us what took you so long?"
This was a perfect time for Holt to fact check Clinton for pushing the same claims during her run against Obama, instead he "fact checked" Trump.
"I will let you respond. It’s important. But I just want to get the answer here. The birth certificate was produced in 2011. You’ve continued to tell the story and question the president’s legitimacy in 2012, ’13, ’14, ’15…"

"Mr. Trump, a lot of these are judgment questions. You had supported the war in Iraq before the invasion. Why is your judgment better than hers?"
Trump, as a private citizen and real estate developer, made one flippant remark on Howard Stern's show, then opposed the war for years before anyone else did. Hillary the war hawk voted for it as a politician whose job it was to be informed on the issues. It cost her during her run against Obama, yet now the lying media is trying to blame Trump for the war she supported.
"Mr. Trump, this year Secretary Clinton became the first woman nominated for president by a major party. Earlier this month, you said she doesn’t have, quote, 'a presidential look.' She’s standing here right now. What did you mean by that?"
"Muh Female Prezidant!"
Clinton Directed Commentary & Questions:

"He also raised the issue of your e-mails. Do you want to respond to that?"

"Secretary Clinton, last week, you said we’ve got to do everything possible to improve policing, to go right at implicit bias. Do you believe that police are implicitly biased against black people?"
Speaking of implicit bias, in a poll taken before the debate 46% of Americans said they believed the moderators would help Clinton, while only 6% said they would help Trump. Lester Holt's extreme bias proves their suspicions were right.

Despite Holt's bias, Trump won every major online poll taken after the debate.
