The debate continues to be RIGGED against Donald Trump! Now the Debate Commission has just changed a major rule in an effort to stop Trump.
At previous debates, Bill Clinton has shaken the hand of Melania Trump — and sometimes the hands of Trump’s children — as part of the pre-debate protocol. It provides the audience in the room, and the people watching at home, with a moment of graciousness and a touch of celebrity.
But for the final debate, Hillary Clinton’s campaign wants a different setup, because at the previous debate in St. Louis, the Trump campaign invited three women into the family area who accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault and rape. This would force Bill Clinton to shake their hands as he crossed the room, a potentially humiliating and excruciating encounter.
However, the Commission on Presidential Debates intervened, and the women — Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey — never came close to the former president.
But the Clinton side continues to RIG the debates in their favor and has gained approval of a different protocol for the entry of the candidates’ spouses and families into the debate hall.
The new arrangement calls for the candidates’ spouses to enter the hall closer to their seats, rather than crossing the room, and each other’s paths. That would avoid any potential for confrontations, given Mr. Trump’s penchant for dramatic stunts.
Do you think the debate is rigged?
