This will come as a surprise to NO ONE…but Donald Trump is already setting up excuses as to why he shouldn’t have to debate Hillary Clinton, or setting up excuses for when he is destroyed in those debates by Hillary.
Trump, in an interview Thursday with the Washington Post, said he doesn’t think that Anderson Cooper should be a moderator of one of the upcoming presidential debates, calling him “very biased.”
“I don’t think Anderson Cooper should be a moderator, because Anderson Cooper works for CNN and over the last couple of days, I’ve seen how Anderson Cooper behaves,” Trump told the Post. “He’ll be very biased, very biased. I don’t think he should be a moderator. I’ll participate, but I don’t think he should be a moderator. CNN is the Clinton News Network and Anderson Cooper, I don’t think he can be fair.”
But Trump said that he would still participate in the Oct. 9 debate, the second on the schedule, in which Cooper will be teamed with ABC News’ Martha Raddatz in a town hall format. The debate is the second on the schedule. The first, on Sept. 26, will be moderated by NBC News anchor Lester Holt. The final debate on Oct. 19 will be anchored by Chris Wallace.
David Brock, the founder of the pro-Hillary Clinton SuperPAC Correct the Record and the media watchdog Media Matters for America, urged the Commission on Presidential Debates to remove Wallace as the moderator. Brock said that Wallace had a conflict of interest because former Fox News chief Roger Ailes was advising the Trump campaign. But the commission refused to remove Wallace.
Do you think Trump is afraid to debate Hillary?
