Trump and Don Jr slam 'terrible, unfair' debate moderator Kristen Welker as Democrat ties probed

10/17/2020

PRESIDENT Donald Trump and son Don Jr. slammed third presidential debate moderator Kristen Welker as "terrible and unfair" amid scrutiny of her Democrat ties.

The Trump duo quoted a tweet from New York Post reporter Jon Levine who linked to a story revealing the NBC News White House correspondent’s “deep Democrat ties” ahead of the final presidential debate with Joe Biden.

 



“She’s always been terrible & unfair, just like most of the Fake News reporters, but I’ll still play the game. The people know! How’s Steve Scully doing?” Trump tweeted.

His son simply wrote: “Yikes! Here we go again.”

The third presidential debate is scheduled for October 22 and will follow the same format as the controversial and chaotic first debate, CNN reported.

After the first showdown, the Commission on Presidential Debates said it would host the second debate virtually – but ultimately canceled it to “protect the health and safety of all.”


Welker, 44, however has come under fire as she gears up to moderate the final 90-minute debate at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn.

The star NBC reporter’s parents, Julie and Harvey Welker, have donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates, data from the Federal Election Commission shows.

The Welkers have donated to the Biden campaign, as well as efforts to elect Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012.

A photo on Kristen Welker’s Facebook page shows the reporter with the Obama family celebrating Christmas at the White House in 2012.

Welker, whose political party registration is not currently listed, was registered as a Democrat in Washington D.C. in 2012 and in Rhode Island in 2004, the New York Post reported.
