LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles, Las Vegas Bureau) – The third and final presidential debate will take place at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas on Wednesday, October 19 from 9pm EST.
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump will face each other in a discussion moderated by Fox News Sunday presenter, Chris Wallace.
In a desperate move to bounce back from his crumbling campaign and lackluster performance in the first two debates, Trump is now demanding a new format for Las Vegas. He wants no moderator.
In past debates — in the primaries as well as the general elections — Trump had repeatedly accused, and sometimes insulted, the debate moderators for being biased towards his opponents. In last night’s debate, Trump called out both Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz, saying the moderators were not giving him as much time as Clinton to respond to questions.
So, for Las Vegas, the Trump campaign wants to eliminate the moderator and have a one-on-one, face to face, smirk to smirk, sniffle to sniffle match with Clinton.
The campaign also asked the Commission on Presidential Debates to get rid of podiums, chairs and microphones to allow its candidate to dance around and stalk Clinton just like he did in St. Louis.
Asked for comment about Trump’s proposal, Clinton told The Adobo Chronicles, “Bring it on!”
In the words of Trump himself, “She doesn’t quit. She doesn’t give up.”
And why would she?
