Trump Is Now Openly Begging Debate Moderators Not To Fact Check Him

Donald Trump is openly begging debate moderators to allow him to lie at will because fact checking would be “unfair.”

Video of Trump on Fox News (of course):

Trump said:

Well, I think he has to be a moderator. You’re debating somebody, and if she makes a mistake, or if I make a mistake, we’ll take each other on. But I certainly don’t think you want Candy Crowley again.

I really don’t think you want that. That was a very pivotal moment in that debate. And it really threw the debate off. And it was unfair. So I don’t think you want that. No, I think you have to have somebody that just lets ’em argue it out.

Heaven forbid that the moderator throws the debate off by pointing out that one of the two candidates on stage is intentionally not telling the truth.

It is estimated that there could be as many as 100 million people tuned into the presidential debate on Monday. Trump knows that the only chance he has against Hillary Clinton is to turn the debate into a circus of lies and half truths.

If the debate is a tightly focused on what the two candidates know, and what they plan to do as president, Donald Trump will get blown out of the water. There has never been a candidate who spent so much time trying to game preferential treatment out of debate moderators.

Trump has probably spent more time whining about the moderators and “fairness” than he has on debate prep. If the debate moderators question and apply the same standards to both candidates objectively, Donald Trump will be in big trouble.

Donald Trump is begging for special treatment, and if he doesn’t get it, there will be a tantrum of epic proportions thrown by the man who believes that virtue of gender and wealth he is entitled to be held to a lower standard at the first presidential debate.
