Lester Holt has been lambasted on social media with accusations he favored Hillary Clinton following Monday night’s presidential debates.
Some allegations against the NBC moderator included that he frequently interrupted Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and went easy on Clinton.
Even Trump himself implied that he was disappointed the topics of Clinton’s foundation, emails and Benghazi scandal were never raised.
In an infographic, Vox.com noted Trump was interrupted by Holt when he was speaking 30 times and he stopped Clinton only 19 times.
One question Holt asked was about Trump’s tax return, which he has refused to release.
But many agreed with Trump that Holt asked almost nothing about Clinton’s emails, Benghazi or the Clinton Foundation.
Fox News commentator Todd Starnes even wondered if Holt was auditioning for press secretary in a Clinton White House, such was his perceived bias against Trump.
After the debate, Trump tweeted: ‘Nothing on emails. Nothing on the corrupt Clinton Foundation. And nothing on #benghazi.’
However, during the 90 minute debate, Trump also didn’t bring any of those topics up.
Holt, who is a registered Republican in New York – despite allegations from Trump that the moderator is a Democrat – also implied Trump had something to hide in his tax return.
When it came to the candidates’ problematic pasts, Holt appeared to ask more questions about Trump’s birther conspiracy, which came to a head in recent weeks.
However, Breitbart noted that Holt didn’t ask Clinton about her remarks about ‘super-predators’ when she was First Lady.
Breitbart also suggested Holt framed questions to make Trump appear racist and sexist.
The site noted that, toward the end of the debate, Holt asked Trump about what he meant when he said Clinton doesn’t look ‘presidential’.
Author Pamela Geller ripped into Holt saying he ‘served his overlords quite well tonight’ before launching into a tirade about how poorly she thought he performed
Holt inserted that Clinton has become the first woman to be nominated for president when he asked his first question.
When Trump answered, Holt interrupted, Breitbart noted.
Holt also held Trump accountable for supporting the Iraq War but didn’t bring up that Clinton voted for it.
