Take his friendly chat Monday night with Fox's Bill O'Reilly, who asked Trump about the scheduled moderators of his debates with Hillary Clinton. If you missed it, here's a portion of the transcript courtesy of The Washington Post when they talked about the journalists who will be asking the questions, including Lester Holt of NBC:"TRUMP: And by the way, Lester is a Democrat.
"O'REILLY: I didn't know that.
"TRUMP: Look, it's a phony system. Lester is a Democrat. I mean, they are all Democrats. Okay? It's a very unfair system."
Well, we checked that part about NBC's Lester Holt, who will moderate the first debate on Sept. 26.
In fact, as Time magazine also points out, Holt has been a registered Republican in the state of New York since 2003.
