Watters Warns CNN Presidential Debate Moderators Will Be 'Calling Balls and Strikes'

CNN has announced it would host the first event in late June in the battleground state of Georgia without an audience.

The news follows Biden’s campaign’s suggestion to hold the first event later that month.

In order for the candidate to be eligible for participation in the debate, their name has to appear on enough state ballots to receive 270 electoral votes to win the presidency.

During a segment on “Jesse Watters Tonight,” Watters slammed the presidential debate moderators — CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash.

Below is a transcript of the segment via Grabien:

WATTERS: “The moderators for the CNN debate, Jake Tapper and Dana Bash, here they are.”

TAPPER: “The dehumanizing rhetoric of Adolf Hitler is once again alive and well on a national political stage. This time, of course, in the United States. This time given life by former president and current Republican presidential front-runner, Donald Trump.”

BASH: “Let’s recognize this comment for what it is: a long-standing anti-Semitic trope that the true allegiance for Jews is to their religion, rather than their country. It was used in Nazi Germany to justify the arrest, persecution and mass killings and attempted extermination of the Jewish people, and Trump has been pushing this trope for years.”

WATTERS: “Both moderators say Trump is Hitler, so the debate will be fair and balanced. Will Tapper cut the cameras away from Trump to fact-check him? We will have to see. The ABC moderators would be David Muir and Lindsay Davis, who will be taking orders from ABC News chief political correspondent, George Stephanopoulos.”

STEPHANOPOULOS: “The CIA, the DIA, Defense Department, military — and some people like to call those people’ the deep state.’ Well, the big thing I learned doing this book is that the deep state is packed with patriots. (…) Those bedrock tenets of our democracy are being tested in a way we have not seen since the Civil War. It is a test for the candidates and for those of us in the media and for all of us as citizens.”

WATTERS: “Stephanopoulos praised the deep state and said Trump’s a threat to democracy. I’m sure they will be calling balls and strikes. So Biden set two debates on networks that push hoaxes with liberal moderators, mic cuts and no audience. And Donald Trump agreed.”

Watch

Candidates must consent to the debate’s guidelines and structure and score “at least 15% in four separate national polls of registered or likely voters that meet CNN’s standards for reporting,” according to CNN.

The polling window for determining debate eligibility began on March 13 and ends seven days before the debate date.

Third-party candidate Kennedy has been attempting to get on the ballot in all 50 states and has achieved double-digit support in some polls.

Kennedy stated that excluding “viable candidates from the debate stage undermines democracy” in a post to X.
