If you were looking for the same dumpster fire trainwreck that we witnessed during the first debate, you were SOL. The third and final Presidential debate was more controlled, and it had a lot to do with the moderator.
NBC News journalist, and White House correspondent Kristen Welker, moderated the debate between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. Due to the extreme escalation of personalities during the first debate, a mute button was introduced during the final debate.
Welker laid out the rules for both POTUS and Joe Biden, ahead of the debate. Both men were allowed 2 uninterrupted minutes to answer Welker's questions. Joe Biden showed respect by not speaking out of turn. As predicted, Trump was muted....twice.
Trump showed extreme misogyny toward Kristen Welker when she told him that it was time to move onto the next question. He kept putting his hands up, saying: "Excuse me, let me finish." She graciously gave him 10 seconds to finish his thought (he went over the 10 seconds every time).
The funny part about all of this is, after he talked massive amounts of shit about her before the debate, and after he acted misogynistic during the debate, he tried to sweet talk her by saying: "You're doing a terrific job." Kristen wasn't fooled. She knew what he was doing.
Kristen Welker is a Harvard educated woman. She was ready for what he was going to do. She wasn't shaken when Trump showed his ass.
Kristen Welker, on behalf of voters everywhere, thank you! You did a great job keeping the wild beast quiet, and giving Biden the room to speak. You were poised, professional, and strong.
Girl, I wish I could buy you some wine. Being stuck in the same room as Trump for 90 minutes would drive anyone to pour a glass and turn up!
