Traveling to Mexico City to meet one–on–one with the camarón chauvinist, President Enrique Peña Nieto, is nothing compared to the high–stakes negotiation facing Donald Trump today. The commissars on presidential debates have made their moderator selections and these hanging judges make Gonzalo Curiel look like a friend of the family.
The moderation panel is composed of four Democrats and one journalist. The Democrats include NBC anchor Lester Holt, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, ABC’s Martha Raddatz and CBS’ Elaine Quijano. Evidently four tokens were enough, because the last slot went to FOX News’ Chris Wallace.
Yet for some bizarre reason, Trump claims to be happy with the “journalists” and is ready to attend his three debates.
If only the commissars had made Khizr Khan one of the group, Trump might be roused to defend himself.
Enduring Holt for the first debate is a given. Trying to bounce him would be like going to Detroit to evict black renters instead of attending a black church.
The other debates are a different story. Trump can try the art of the deal to invoke moderator change, if he works at it. You can have all my thoughts on the matter by clicking on the Newsmax.com link below.
