More debate rigging to favor Hillary: The podiums are different

(Before It's News)

As this video points out, Hillary Clinton’s podium at the first presidential debate on September 26, 2016, is different from Donald Trump’s:

  • Hillary’s podium is narrower, so as to create the optical illusion that she’s bigger.
  • Hillary’s podium has a built-in “riser” to elevate her, so that she appears taller. (Hillary is 5′ 7″; Trump is 6′ 2″.)

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) would never have done this if Trump’s opponent were a man.

Here are the leaders and members of the Commission:

  • Co-Chairs:
    • Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr.: lawyer, politician, lobbyist; chairman of the Republican National Committee from 1983 to 1989.
    • Michael “Mike” D. McCurry: former press secretary for Bill Clinton’s administration; Washington-based communications consultant; associated with the firm Public Strategies Washington, Inc.


  • Executive Director:
    • Janet H. Brown: According to the New York Times, “Brown is responsible for organizing and orchestrating” the presidential debates. “Brown has led the commission since its founding in 1987 and previously worked in staff positions at the White House, the Office of Management and Budget, the State Department and the Senate.”
  • Board of Directors:
    • Howard G. Buffett
    • John C. Danforth
    • Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr.
    • Charles Gibson
    • John Griffen
    • Jane Harman
    • Antonia Hernandez
    • Reverend John I. Jenkins
    • Jim Lehrer
    • Newton N. Minow
    • Richard D. Parsons
    • Dorothy S. Ridings
    • Olympia Snowe
    • Shirley M. Tilghman

Shame on all of you!
