Steve Scully is the next debate moderator, who once interned for Vice-President Joe Biden, and also shared "Never Trump" articles, stating his own opinion as "No, Not Trump, Not Ever."
When asked about his history with Joe Biden, Scully said, "You know, it was pretty traditional... I came to school in Washington, D.C., went to American University and had a couple of internships. I worked for Joe Biden, Senator from Delaware at the time, as an intern, so I had my first chance to really see politics up close in Washington, D.C."
Some say that this alone should disqualify Scully as moderator, but his partisanship extends further. In 2016, Scully tweeted a scathing New York Times article, which attacks then Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump.
"He is a childish man running for a job that requires maturity. He is an insecure boasting little boy whose desires were somehow arrested at age 12…"
"Donald Trump is an affront to basic standards of honesty, virtue and citizenship. He pollutes the atmosphere in which our children are raised. He has already shredded the unspoken rules of political civility that make conversation possible. In his savage regime, public life is just a dog-eat-dog war of all against all."
"As the founders would have understood, he is a threat to the long and glorious experiment of American self-government. He is precisely the kind of scapegoating, promise-making, fear-driving and deceiving demagogue they feared," the article concludes.
It remains to be seen whether Scully will remain as moderator or if the debate rules will remain in place, following the heated first debate.
The next Presidential Debate is slated for October 15, 2020.
