On today’s episode of “Liberal Media Lapdogs Shilling for Joe Biden,” NBC on Monday night hosted a town hall with Biden in swing-state Florida. Moderator Lester Holt told NBC and MSNBC viewers that all of the Miami attendees were “undecided voters.”
How do I put this tactfully? What a complete load of crap.
Ol’ Lester kicked off the transparent festivities by asking “Sleepy Joe” a question so loaded, even Michael Moore stuffed full of Double Quarter Pounders with Cheese would’ve paled in comparison.
Here’s how Fox News described it:
Holt kicked off the town hall by asking [Biden] to react to President Trump’s departure from Walter Reed Medical Center and “grilled him” [sarc] by asking if he was “surprised” by Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis; if he thought the president’s medical team were “forthcoming” with information about his condition and whether he “trusts” their assessment; if he had “a moment of pause, of worry” when he first heard about the diagnosis following the first presidential debate; if he would “pledge to transparency” as president regarding his own potential health issues. and if he believes Trump “bears responsibility” for contracting the coronavirus.
Shaking your head over that hardball question? Me, too.
Then there were the “undecided voters.” Oh, those “undecideds.”
Here’s a sampling.
Of the roughly one in eleven “undecided” voters who were allowed to ask questions, one was described as “leaning” towards Biden; one was a “registered Republican” who was also “leaning” towards Biden; one was a former registered Republican who “voted for Hillary Clinton,” and another voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 but he, too, told Holt he has voted for Republicans “in the past.”
None of the attendees were described as a Trump voter or “leaning” towards voting for the president.
And the clowns of the so-called “mainstream” media wonder why they are disdained by tens of millions of Americans, with MSNBC and CNN ratings in the toilet, while Fox News continues to soar.
The supposedly undecided voters at NBC’s and MSNBC’s town hall featuring Joe Biden in Miami were not really undecided as most of them were Democrats and the questions were soft and boring. https://t.co/PxeepLp3t3

Even “left-leaning” Politico’s Mark Caputo was forced to admit the “prime-time treatment” NBC showered on Biden — including the pretend-undecided voters in the audience.
NBC gave prime-time treatment to Joe Biden Monday night in a “town hall” that featured undecided voters in Miami.
But the voters hardly sounded undecided https://t.co/4gRGYulWSW

Michael Tracy summed it up perfectly:
Biden's town hall with Lester Holt tonight on NBC was a joke. Just a pre-screened infomercial with no followup questions on anything — enabling Biden to spend 10 minutes reciting the same 1973 anecdote about Sen. Mike Mansfield that he told at a CNN "town hall" last month

Daily Caller’s Greg Price noted one omission that should’ve been an obvious no-brainer to any objective— wait, never mind.
I just watched that entire, hour-long NBC News townhall with Joe Biden. No questions about whether he will pack the court, nuke the filibuster, or add DC and Puerto Rico as states.

There were also no questions about China

C’mon, Greg. Don’t be so hard on Lester and NBC. So what if they “forgot” to ask Biden why at a 2019 campaign event he said China is not a threat to America, and if he still believes it?
“China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man,” said Biden, attempting to ridicule Trump. “I mean, you know, they’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what? They’re not competition for us,” he added.
That didn’t age well, Lester, did it?
Every question at the sham town hall was primarily focused on Biden’s
hollow promises plans as president — with healthy doses of shots at Trump, tossed in — rather than tough questions that challenged the career politician’s 47-year record. Can’t have that, can we?
Even Democrat “local elected official’ and avid Biden supporter Chris D. Jackson called out NBC. “Damn,” he summed it up.
The media never learns. NBC just spent the first 12 mins of @JoeBiden‘s town hall talking about Trump.

The “mainstream” media has neither the intention nor the desire to learn anything. On the contrary, it is far more interested in “teaching” — indoctrinating, misrepresenting, and outright lying to — willfully low-information voters that “Biden good,” “Orange Man bad.”
If you’re of the mind — and stomach — to watch the entire transparent sham, here ya go. Although instead of popcorn, you might want to grab a bottle of Maalox or Pepto Bismol before you do.
