The Commission on Presidential Debates has now cancelled the second Presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden. This news comes amid controversy surrounding the debate, including the moderator's previous ties to Biden and the proposition to have the debate be virtual.
Steve Scully was chosen as the moderator for the event, but sparked controversy as old tweets reveal that he is a #nevertrumper and also interned for Joe Biden. This is evidently a great conflict of interest. Things only got worse when Scully tweeted out yesterday. In his tweet, Scully mocks Trump with Anthony Scaramucci.
C-SPAN released a statement suggesting Scully's account was hacked.
Scully's Twitter account is now completely deleted.
Besides the moderator controversy, there was division on the debate itself. The commission unilaterally decided to host the debate virtually, which President Trump completely rejected and called "ridiculous."
On Friday, The Daily Caller reported that "leadership of the Commission on Presidential Debates, which organizes the general election debates, includes many Trump critics from both parties."
As of Friday, the 2nd Presidential debate, scheduled for October 15, has been officially cancelled.
