Hillary Clinton took the internet by storm last Thursday when she appeared on an awkward segment of the talk show “Between Two Ferns” with Zach Galifianakis. As it turns out, the Funny or Die host will not be conducting a similar dialogue with Trump.

After issuing a statement late Monday night blasting Lester Holt’s job as presidential debate moderator, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell joined the Fox Business Network’s late-night coverage and urged Donald Trump to “raise hell” over Holt “pitch[ing] softballs to Hillary Clinton all night long.”

Within mere seconds of the first 2016 presidential debate ending Monday night, CNN’s post-debate analysis was dedicated to critiquing Donald Trump’s performance. The first round of critiques came from Jake Tapper who stated he felt that the first 30 minutes went well for Trump, while the following hour was dominated by Hillary Clinton. His colleagues Wolf Blitzer and John King agreed with both noting Trump took Clinton’s bait often and his many lies, respectively.

Liberal cheerleader Chris Matthews could barely contain his excitement, Monday, spinning “brilliant” Hillary Clinton’s debate performance as a “home run” and declaring the race to be “over.” Matthews resorted to movie references, declaring, “I was watching A Few Good Men and she was Tom Cruise and he was Jack Nicholson. It was not close. It was over tonight.”

With little time left between the conclusion of Monday’s presidential debate and the late local newscasts, ABC, CBS, and NBC used the roughly 20 minutes before 11:00 p.m. Eastern to offer emotions ranging from complimenting Hillary Clinton as “pleasant” and hitting Donald Trump as “condescending” and “rude” to even wondering why Clinton’s e-mails were barely mentioned.

The first presidential debate pitting Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton on Sept. 26, kicked off with the topic “achieving prosperity.” Not that you’d ever really know it from the questions asked by moderator Lester Holt. Multiple polls show that the economy is foremost in voters minds, but the economic segment of the debate failed to dive deep into the state of the U.S. economy. And the tough economic questions were from one side: the left.

Debate moderator Lester Holt repeatedly challenged Donald Trump during Monday night’s highly anticipated debate, but refrained from going after Hillary Clinton in the same aggressive manner. Holt also minimized the Democrat’s e-mail scandal. It was only brought up because Trump did so.

Following the first 2016 presidential debate on Monday night between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell issued a scathing statement about the debate and moderator/NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt.

With the first 2016 presidential debate just minutes away on Monday, the pro-Hillary Clinton panelists on CNN’s Debate Night in America were firing on all cylinders. “It is very, very difficult to become a master of a single policy area,” stated CNN contributor Van Jones, “She is the Michael Jordan of policy in multiple, multiple areas and we almost treat it like it's a bad thing.”

Editor’s Note, 10:33 p.m. Eastern: This post has been updated to include a second reference by Clinton for help from “fact-checkers.” --> On at least two occasions during Monday’s presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee was tangling with Trump on her inability to produce any tangible results on fighting ISIS and foreign interventions when Clinton implored her friends in the liberal media and especially “the fact-checkers” to “get to work” on Trump.

Minutes before the pre-debate instructions commenced on Monday’s first 2016 presidential debate, MSNBC personality Lawrence O’Donnell griped to his cohorts and viewers that rules and time limits make it “actually more burdensome” for the more substantive candidate while the debates showcase “no actual presidential skills” for who would be best for the job.

Just prior to Monday's debate, Chris Matthews used a very odd historical and anatomical analogy while talking about Hillary Clinton. Talking to Mike Pence, the Hardball anchor, essentially, wondered if Donald Trump will have a “kick him in the balls” attitude towards Clinton. Matthews blurted, “Bobby Kennedy back in '60 when his brother was about to debate Nixon in the great debate, he gave him a last-minute piece of advice. He said — I can't say it exactly to what he said — but he said, ‘Kick him in the you know where.’”

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has garnered a vast Hollywood following. Of the top 50 wealthiest celebrities, at least nine have thrown their support behind Clinton, and are using their influence and money to promote her campaign.

In an effort to revive Hillary Clinton's lackluster campaign, the New York Times yesterday published an interesting "oral history" of the first presidential debate in the year 2000 that pitted Vice President Al Gore against Texas Gov. George W. Bush.

Provocatively titled "Debacle: What Al Gore's First Debate Against George W. Bush Can Teach Hillary Clinton," the story includes quotes unlikely to endear Gore senior adviser Bob Shrum to Gore but may endear Shrum to conservatives, if only briefly. This comes only weeks after Shrum's spectacularly premature prediction that the election was over as of Labor Day weekend.

Charlie Hoffmann at the Washington Free Beacon found MSNBC anchor Kate Snow pulling a mental muscle on national television today. She claimed Trump has never been on a debate stage with a female candidate. We know that liberals have a hard time conceding that conservative women count as real women, but facts are facts.  This inaccuracy comes from the people who insist journalists need to be fact checkers in these debates.
