It is like expecting a unicorn pony on your sixth birthday (I’m still brooding over it) to expect ABC to honestly set up a town hall event. They did not disappoint those low expectations on Thursday night at an event in Philadelphia.
Two of the questioners, just regular citizens mind you, were falsely identified without mentioning their activism, if you can call championing corruption and socialism “activism,” for the Democrat Party. And there was also this.
A committed Joe Biden supporter who was wrongly presented by @NBCNews as undecided said he was clear with the network about his intention to vote Democrat before the town hall.

Obama Speechwriter Asks Biden Question
Fox News picks up the shill story,
“One of the questioners at the ABC-hosted event was Nathan Osburn, a former speechwriter for the Obama White House. Osburn specifically worked for the Office of Public Affairs at the Commerce Department under the Obama-Biden administration and at the Small Business Administration…
Osburn was quoted in the Philadelphia Inquirer earlier this year as ‘a former Obama administration speechwriter’ who had created a ‘Philly for Pete group’ aimed at boosting former Democratic presidential primary candidate Pete Buttigieg. And the LGBTQ Victory Institute listed Osburn as a senior speechwriter for the Small Business Administration in an article praising the Obama-Biden administration for its LGBTQ hiring practices.”
Yeah, just an average Joe. Here’s the completely objective question he asked.
“Amy Coney Barrett’s being pushed through at the last minute, even though millions have already voted. So what do you think about ideas from people like Pete Buttigieg and others to put in place safeguards that will help ensure more long-term balance and stability? And what do you say to LGBTQ Americans and others who are very worried right now about erosions of their rights and our democracy as a whole?”
Interesting. You’d think democracy would be eroded by lying to the American people as to the identity of a questioner at a presidential campaign town hall. He was just listed as a communications worker by ABC.
Not to mention that George Stephanopoulos, a former high ranking Clinton administration figure, was the debate moderator.

Another set up concerned one Mieke Haeck, who ABC described as a physical therapist from State College, PA.
“Haeck is also the wife of Ezra Nanes, a high-profile Democrat in Pennsylvania who in 2018 ran a campaign challenging Republican state Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman. Nanes is currently an at-large member of the Centre County Democratic Committee. Centre County is the county in which State College resides.”
Here is her unbiased question”
“My youngest daughter is transgender. The Trump administration has attacked the rights of transgender people, banning them from military service, weakening nondiscrimination protections and even removing the word ‘transgender’ from some government websites.
How will you as president reverse this dangerous and discriminatory agenda and ensure that the lives and rights of LGBTQ people are protected under U.S. law?”
Poor ABC. They can’t even run their shills without it being thrown back in their face. If they thought Biden was ahead they wouldn’t resort to this. Are they getting nervous?

Where were his footy pajamas and coco cup?
As I've aged, I'm afraid I've been getting more cynical of the human race, which they say is natural. I guess after years and years of seeing the dishonesty, hypocrisy, self-absorption, and disregard for others, you finally start to wonder if these things are the true definition of what most people are. While no one is perfect, myself included, we all should at least try to rise above these selfish, base things…but it seems the "self" usually wins out…the media are a perfect example of what I'm talking about.
Two Democrat degenerate operatives masquerading as undecided voters. ABC is evil.
All these moderators are leftists. Here's a thought. How about the left asking Trump his questions and, say,, Ben Shapiro asking Biden questions…. would be fair…
And they are still trying to sink a battleship with spit wads!
When a candidate is so flawed like Joe Biden, it must be very difficult to hire reliable campaign workers. Those Biden workers are really messing up by creating fake answers to fake questions in an attempt to move fake polls on fake news outlets, because they are constantly being exposed as all being inept.
The wannabe commie Amerikan Bolshevick Cartel strikes again but as usual looks stupid.
these events are not "debates" but are interviews. Let each candidate ask a question and have at it. the yhird person has no microphone but a clock (visable to all watching) to control the time. fewer questions and more responce time.
The Democrats have LOST any degree of HONESTY, or FAIRNESS, that they ever had ! they are now the most ruthless, dishonest, fraudulent group of Democrats, that this Country has ever seen !
When President Trump says 'this election is rigged' Believe it!!!! The entire media and democrat party appear to have and unsigned agreement to muzzle him and to muscle him out of the white house! I hope the voters are smart enough to see this for what it is!
What did you expect to find in the swampy toilet bowl? The DNC is not committed to dialogue it has a narrative that is the nature of one party political systems or socialism. Negative feedback loops are taboo they are barely permissible in some Republican's campaigns. But did anyone really think they would permit anything that might befuddle a senile old fool? The best thing that might be said for Joe is apparently they have been able to train him to say he is running for President.
so basically with surgical gloves and a black cloak to hide the puppet master -you can make Biden's lips move and appear to answer the questions
Pretty disgusting. If I was the GOP, I'd never do any presidential or vice-presidential debates again. Why bother?
Or at least two of the moderators chosen for the three presidential debates being un=-abashed democrat!
Turned off the Trump fiasco after 15 minutes. Didn't see it.
Sorry. I turned off the Trump fiasco after 15 minutes of Guthrie's hit job on the president. So I didn't see it–and I watched none of Quid Pro Quo Joe's lovefest with George S.
You did remember that she also asked him a question!
You mean like the Trump questioner who's only comment was that he should smile more because she likes his smile?
CBS, NBC, MSNBC, or CNN would have all done the same thing. The media is unabashedly pro-Biden, anti-Trump. So this shouldn't be a surprise. How about ABC's choice of a former Bill Clinton aide as the moderator/host?
The Democrats are more Devious than the Republicans, that's for sure.
This only shows how great the divide between mid America and the east / west coast elites are. These individuals have the power of the video media aka television to push their agenda upon the entire nation.
And President Trump was so polite to her.
I have never been a huge fan of them. And since I worked two jobs for close to 30 years, I never had the time.
Thank you for serving, sir. God bless you. My wife's dad received a Purple Heart back in World War II.
I no longer bother watching them when they're televised, as I know the bias' of the moderators (that includes C. Wallace) will be blatant. I catch the highlights on Fox news (via T. Carlson, Hannity, & Ingraham) after the dust has settled. MSM has been totally corrupted.
It was a hit job on Trump, pure and simple. I turned it off after 15 minutes or so. Couldn't take it anymore.
Who would have thought that the the anti-Trump media would bring in an Obama speech writer and wife of a former democrat politician as undecided voters at the Biden town hall? The media has lost the concept of truth. At Trump's town hall they did not need to bring in shills, the moderator did a good job all by herself.
