31. She has cut him off several times.

But again, if you complain about the moderator, you're conceding that Biden is not holding his own.

It was the same with Wallace. The Trump campaign complained about Wallace and it was because they knew he lost the debate.

She is not cutting him off. She steps in for one second and then sits back

And don't tell me about my opinions. And Wallace did suck, but at least he actually TRIED to give Biden a chance to have equal time

than we need actual moderation and rules that are followed and enforced.

Past bad performance doesn't justify current bad performance.

If you brought Walter Kronkite and Peter Jennings back from the dead people would bitch about their moderating. It’s like officials in sports. Nobody likes them.
