If we have another presidential debate this year, (and that seems to be a pretty big if), there are concerns that the moderators are going to be out to “get” President Trump.
At least, that’s the theory that permeated the social media sphere last week, after it was announced that one of the moderators set to work on the dais for the Trump/Biden matchup was a former intern for Joe Biden himself.
That moderator, Steve Scully, may have just outed his own prejudice on Twitter.
Morgenstern said, “[I]f anybody’s having a bad week, it’s certainly the Presidential Debate Commission, with the way they’ve handled this. And now, their chosen moderator certainly seems not to be very impartial. The first one — Susan Page, of course, is writing the glowing biography of Speaker Pelosi and now, Mr. Scully, who interned for Joe Biden now colluding…with the Mooch. … I think the cat’s out of the bag. I don’t think Mr. Scully is impartial. So, that really calls into question, again, the Debate Commission’s judgment here.”
The Commission on Presidential Debates quickly released a statement indicating that Scully claims to have been “hacked” on Twitter, and that the tweet in question is not to be believed.
