“Presidential debate moderator Steve Scully raised eyebrows on Thursday night with a tweet that is having critics question his objectivity ahead of the second matchup between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden,” Fox news reported.
Scully, who is best known as the political editor of C-SPAN and host of “Washington Journal,” sent a cryptic message that was picked up immediately by Mollie Hemmingway of The Federalist.
“@Scaramucci should I respond to trump,” according to a tweet from his account.
That message appeared to be directed at former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, who was once a supporter of President Trump, for a short time, but has since joined the #Resistance and has been outspoken in favor of Biden’s candidacy, often trying to get attention for attacks on Trump.
On Friday morning, the tweet was deleted.
“Steve Scully, the second Debate Moderator, is a Never Trumper, just like the son of the great Mike Wallace. Fix!!!” President Donald J. Trump said.
Scully’s boss, from CSPAN, said Scully had been “hacked”
The “Mooch” ACCEPTS THE STORY
THE ALLEGED ‘HACKED’ EMAIL VERRIFIED
NEVER TRUMP IS – AS NEVER TRUMPER DOES
Trump had said that the Scully as a Debate moderate for the second debate, that had been expected for OCT. 15. was a friend of Biden’s.
Uncovered posts on social media show that Steve Scully, a former intern for Democrat candidate Joe Biden, was literally a “Never Trumper”:
“Just when you thought the Presidential Debate Commission couldn’t possibly look any worse [or more partisan]. The incompetence and dishonesty is truly stunning. It never ceases to amaze me just how much corruption has been uncovered by the Trump administration in 4 short years!,” a Trump supporter posted in reaction.
CSPAN IS INVESTIGATING AND IS SERIOUS
What it looks like to Trump supporters is that the Mooch was showing off, and that Scully got caught. Reactions are funny.
Carmine Sabia wrote. “Wait @SteveScully is saying his account was hacked. Are you kidding? And that was all he tweeted? Does anyone believe Steve Scully’s account was hacked? Anyone? You got caught Steve.”
Responding to both Scully and Scaramucci’s tweets, White House deputy communications director Brian Morgenstern told “Fox News @ Night” anchor Shannon Bream that “if anybody is having a bad week, it’s certainly the presidential debate commission.”
“Now their chosen moderator certainly seems not to be very impartial,” Morgenstern told Bream. “The first one. Susan Page, of course, is writing the glowing biography of Speaker Pelosi and now Mr. Scully, who interned for Joe Biden, now colluding to use the word the Democrats love with the Mooche, who, you know, I love The Mooche, but he’s gone way off the deep end. He is a wild-eyed critic of the president at this point. And now to have a debate moderator seeking his advice. I think the cat’s out of the bag. I don’t think Mr. Scully is impartial. So that really calls into question, again, the debate commission’s judgment here.”
