Trump's Claim The Debate Moderators Shorted Him On Time Is Totally Bogus

Huffington Post


Donald Trump, who regularly complains that both people and institutions stack the deck against him, claimed the moderators during Sunday’s debate were giving his rival Hillary Clinton more time.

In reality, the Republican presidential nominee spoke for a slightly longer time than Clinton.

Despite being allowed to speak for just over a minute more than his Democratic opponent, Trump complained that he was battling not only Clinton but moderators Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz.

“Nice, one on three,” Trump quipped when the moderators cut him off to take a question from the audience.

Among the ways Trump used his time during Sunday’s debate: Interrupting Clinton at least 18 times.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
