Fact Checking The Presidential Debate ► Another Aunty Em Editorial

I’ve been reading a lot lately about the combined topics of Donald Trump’s lies and whether the debate moderators will fact check this crazy MoFo.

It might surprise people to learn that I am totally against a Debate Moderator holding a candidate to the facts. That’s the job of the other candidate.

The moderator’s job is to introduce the candidates, spell out the agreed upon debate rules, see to it that the participants keep to the those rules, and then get the fuck out of the way.

As we have seen during this election cycle, it doesn’t really matter how many lies Donald Trump tells. He is running neck and neck in the polls with Hillary Clinton despite being a bigger liar than Richard Nixon and Roger Ailes put together.
