Media Research Center president Brent Bozell continued his tear on Tuesday denouncing Lester Holt’s “failed” performance as Monday’s presidential debate moderator with two appearances on Fox Business Network (FBN) programming and called out the Republican National Committee (RNC) for accepting any potential moderator from NBC, MSNBC, or CNBC.

During a live report in MSNBC’s 12 p.m. ET hour, as part of Hillary Clinton’s traveling press corps, Andrea Mitchell gushed over how pleased the campaign was with the Democratic nominee’s debate performance: “Well, you can imagine they feel very confident....There was applause by her staff when she boarded [the plane]. We’re in the back of the plane, as you well know, so we heard that from the front.”

Following Monday night’s presidential debate, Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence visited all three network morning shows on Tuesday and was repeatedly hammered by hosts over Donald Trump’s debate performance. Hostile questions accusing Trump of everything from lying to tax evasion were hurled at the Indiana governor.

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.

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.

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.’”
