  1. What I would say to Kellyanne Conway are four things. First, a thriving democracy depends on an informed electorate and the role of the media is crucial. Second, we are the most uninformed citizenry in the first world and maybe less than others – this is a key reason Trump can get away with lying. Third, Conway is now lying like Trump, so her reputation is now poor, in my view. Fourth, Trump’s lack of veracity lies in his history of exploiting people, which he does on a daily basis. This is where the focus should be.

    • Your #1 point – Trump supporters and white and lower to uneducated.
      Your #2 point – See #1
      Your #3 point – She started lying long before sehe joined the Trump campaign.
      Your #4 point – Trump does exploit people – see Matt Lauer – so the question is….does Lester Holt let himself be exploited – sit like a lump – or challenge Trump and Clinton too on ‘facts’ they both toss around?
      Will he actuall question and keep questioning Trump untill he gets an actual answer.

  2. HRC needs to bring up climate change as a huge differentiator. The DOD and US military said climate change is a threat to national security and her opponent thinks it is a hoax and will tear up the Paris accord on Day One. Holt has his work cut out for him to reign in the barrage of lies from The Donald.
