Anderson Cooper Martha Raddatz Presidential Debate Moderators Trump Clinton

Second Presidential Debate: Grade Martha Raddatz and Anderson Cooper's Job as Moderators

Round 2 of the presidential debates between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton offered plenty of fireworks — and moderators Martha Raddatz and Anderson Cooper got caught in the crossfire.

As the Republican and Democratic nominees traded vicious barbs, Raddatz and Cooper tried to maintain order, telling the rowdy audience several times to settle down and interrupting each candidate to move on. But Trump clearly felt like he was being ganged up on; he even muttered under his breath that this debate felt like it was “one-on-three.”

At first glance, the combination of Raddatz (a woman) and Cooper (an openly gay man) might seem like it was specifically designed to antagonize Trump, who’s had trouble winning support from both of those demographics. But Raddatz has been with ABC News for nearly 20 years and moderated the 2012 VP debate, and CNN anchor Cooper has been covering world affairs on TV since the early 1990s. So both clearly earned their spots on the debate stage tonight.

The debate’s town-hall format put half of the questions in the hands of undecided voters sitting in the audience, so Raddatz and Cooper had at least some of the pressure taken off their shoulders. But when the moderator questions began, Cooper went right after the infamous “Trump Tapes,” directly challenging Trump: “You bragged that you’ve sexually assaulted women. Do you understand that?”

Trump did not understand that, again dismissing his words on the infamous tape as “locker-room talk” and pivoting to talk about how he’s going to “knock the hell out of ISIS.” Cooper continued needling him, though, trying to pin him down: “Have you ever done those things?” Trump insisted, “No, I have not.”

Raddatz got under Trump’s skin early on when she cut off one of his answers. He bristled at the interruption: “I’m not allowed to respond? Sounds fair.” Later, in a discussion about Islamophobia, Raddatz pressed Trump about a specific point, and he lashed out: “Why don’t you interrupt her? You interrupt me all the time.”

Cooper didn’t get away unscathed, either. After he wrapped up an exchange about Clinton’s missing emails, Trump hit back at him: “I’d like to know: Why aren’t you bringing up the emails? We haven’t finished it.” When Cooper insisted on moving on, Trump made his “one-on-three” remark. He also complained several times about the moderators allowing Clinton to go over her allotted time.

But Cooper and Raddatz did follow up with both candidates to clarify their positions throughout, and they pressed Clinton on her paid speeches and her characterization of Trump’s supporters as “deplorables.” Honestly, they probably could’ve done more to keep Trump in line, since he repeatedly interrupted Clinton’s answers and got away with it. But they did what they could to keep things as civil as possible… which wasn’t very civil at all.

    I thought they both did as well as anyone could.

    • Belle says:

      This was another one-way debate…they don’t even try to hide they are behind Clinton!!! It’s disgusting how biased “journalists” are these days :/ Our country is a total joke, and if Clinton opens our borders and trade it will no longer be the United States of America. Our country will be even more unrecognizable than it already does :( … I am not a Trump fan either, I will write in “American’s Deserve Better” on my ballot next month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • reddkl says:

        If Trump would stop lying, interrupting, speaking beyond the allotted time, and disrespecting the moderators verbally, they would only ask the questions.

    • Jerri says:

      yeah. next time they should get Samuel L Jackson to moderate next time. He won’t take s*** from either of the candidates

  2. John P Becker says:

    Wow, only moderately to above biased. Did you even watch the entire debate?
    Stick to gossip, movies, and TV. This is not journalism.

    • CP says:

      Clearly you yourself didn’t watch the debate.

      Also, TVLine is not Fox News. I’m sorry you expected Fox News worship to the demagogue on this site, when in reality he’s literally a degenerate who bragged about literally committing sexual assault, and Anderson and Martha did an amazing job trying to force him to acknowledge and apologise for the deplorable remarks he made.

      • Belle says:

        You’re opinion is flawed a bit, the so called “journalists” moderating this debate don’t hide their beliefs at all…you can see they are behind Clinton and they don’t care if we know it. Trump and Clinton both should be fired and replaced with 2 candidates who care about our Country, these two care about themselves and that’s it, the rest is just pure pandering to their respective party!

  3. Barney Fife says:

    They BOTH interrupted Mr Trump with his answers but gave Hillary a pass, even gave her extra minutes to answer. NOT FAIR, they looked biased.

    • AB says:

      Well at least Hillary was pretending to answer the actual questions.

      • Melissa says:

        Um, no you’re wrong haha!!! She’s been repeating the same crap forever….nothing new, no changes…..

      • Lucifer says:

        Yeah, continuously saying “trumps a liar,” “American is great because America is good,” and “I’m two-faced like Lincoln” were such great answers.

    • Arek says:

      They interrupted him because he wasn’t answering the questions they asked, you moron. Cooper asked Trumo about his sexual assault and he changed the topic to ISIS!!!

      • Steve F. says:

        Yeah, when Anderson Cooper went after Trump on the tax evasion question, he somehow turned it around to an ISIS talking point. Never answered the question, though…

        • Terry says:

          It wasn’t sexual assault. He did deflect to Isis but she didn’t say anything about wiping her computer or address actual sexual assaults her husband made, whom which she threatened and belittled.

      • Joey says:

        Also when asked about Aleppo, Syria, he started talking about Mosul, Iraq. Ridiculous that he doesn’t know his geopolitics in the slightest.

      • Bite Me Yes says:

        Who are you calling a moron you stupid fool…He would not have been off topic if they had let him complete a sentence every now and then…

        • Coleen Shin says:

          he spoke for for 39 minutes, she spoke for 38. try again.

          • corners says:

            “he spoke for for 39 minutes, she spoke for 38. try again.”

            Id like to see the timeline of that. It sure felt like they cut trump off a lot. Even only telling his cheers to be quit because they were easting time.

            I don’t like trump at all, but it looked like 3v1 up there till cooper tightened the lid later on with 2 min warnings.

          • Ben says:

            The debate SHOULD be 3 on 1 as long as one candidate answers the questions and the other doesn’t. The job of moderator isn’t to let both players do whatever they want, it’s to keep them both in line. If one is further out of line…

        • Temperance says:

          He hasn’t shown any ability at all to form coherent thoughts or answer a question no matter the time given. He’s very mentally ill.

          • corners says:

            “He hasn’t shown any ability at all to form coherent thoughts or answer a question no matter the time given”

            Sure,but why pretend that none of clintons answers are just memorized.
            Does she really feel that way?
            Will she still pass the TPP?
            Has she seen a rebel group she wouldn’t arm?
            Supreme court justice?

            It just sucks. We should be talking about these issues that really effect us, instead were talking about birth certificates and sexist pig of men both ampaigns seem to have a stink of.

        • Mary says:

          LOL If Trump had stayed on topic instead of rambling off he had plenty of time to answer the questions. The truth is he wanted to get his spew in plus he really didn’t have any answer because he is clueless. Typical Trump and supporters deflect blame on everyone else. It is getting quite old. Name calling really lets at least pretend to be a grown up.

    • Ryan says:

      Riiiiight which is why he had more total speaking time then she did…..

      • Lucifer says:

        While every site is giving slightly different times, they all seem to conclude Trump had approximately 1 more minute than Clinton.

    • Jen says:

      If you look at the facts: Trump had 40:10 of talking time to Clinton’s 39:05. What was your point again?

      • Bite Me Yes says:

        His point was HOW MANY FREAKING TIMES DID THEY INTERRUPT TRUMP?

        • Coleen Shin says:

          they were keeping both to allotted times. that’s part of their job. they did a great job doing that.

        • Mary says:

          Trump rambles on and on never answering the question and you are complaining that they interrupt him to tell him to shut up that’s rich. Both did get told they were over the time and yes trump more often because he did it more. Trump and his supporters need to understand how the debate runs. He can go on and on and spew what ever he wants at the rallies but during the debate you get two minutes. I think they did okay considering what they were up against. True to form Trump whines about everyone is against him. Martha gave him plenty of chances to answer the question the truth was clear he didn’t know or have an answer. HOW MANY TIMES DID HE KEEP GOING LIKE THE ENERGY BUNNY????

    • Paolo says:

      I laughed so hard at this comment. I second what Arek said, Trump was asked on the deplorable statements he made, and somehow he got into talking about ISIS. He was asked about Aleppo, which is in Syria, he rambled about Mosul, which is in Iraq.

      Seriously I haven’t seen someone dodge aswering a question so hard since the Maury Povich show!!!

      • corners says:

        Agreed, But when clinton doesn’t want to answer a question, she just starts hammering on trump or recites her resume.

        I dont like trump one bit, but clinton should get a free ride tot he white house because of trump. She of all people should be receiving tough scrutiny right now after the 2007 meltdown. Will she pass the TPP?

        • AB says:

          Hunny, at this point it’s either Trump or Hillary. Pick the lesser of two evils.

          I don’t think anyone is fooling themselves and thinking that Hillary is super great, but Trump is worse.

    • Temperance says:

      No, they didn’t. But Trump seems perfectly incapable of answering a question in two minutes… and when given two minutes, he gets lost and wanders off, never answering. He seems to love to try and interrupt, verbally and physically threatening women though.

    • Jerri says:

      Trump still spoke about a minute longer than Clinton did, how’s that not fair?

  4. Steve F. says:

    I was just waiting for one of the moderators to offer Trump a tissue.

    • Melissa says:

      Seriously, grow up. This was a debate, not small talk about your issues. Trump is by far the better candidate…unless you’re jobless.

      • Dude says:

        Yeah I mean he’s unqualified, unpredictable, unprofessional, unpresidential, inconsistent, has no experience and that’s aside from the whole racist, misogynistic rapist thing…by far the better candidate.

        • Lucifer says:

          So Trump is a rapist now because of crude comments, but Bill Clinton never did anything to all of his accusers and Hillary never trash-talked them and threatened them? Oh, and the Clintons never helped jump-start the prison industrial complex with racist words like “superpredator”?

          • Temperance says:

            Most of that is fabricated, bub.

          • Mary says:

            Is sexual predator a better description for you?

          • Lucifer says:

            Oh, I see. Everyone immediately believed all the accusations about Cosby and we were told that we had to believe he was a rapist because there was more than one accuser. But when many women accuse Bill Clinton of rape and Hillary has bad-mouthed and threatened them (it’s on tape) to the public, we’re all supposed to just shout out “they’re lying pigs, everyone who even gives them the time of day is a conspiracy theorist!”

            Lena Dunham is more of a sexual predator than Donald Trump, she actually confessed to all of the disgusting things she did to her sister for a decade. But for some reason, nobody minded when Hillary sat down in an interview with her a while back or that she is a huge Hillary supporter. Donald Trump just said some perverted things in what was a really awkward conversation, but I’m sure you all only watched the sound bites.

          • Mary says:

            What Trump said is more than perverted it is classic sexual predators. I don’t see anyone defending Bill Clinton because he is not running for President. Just to let you know I wouldn’t have voted for him either if a tape like this came out.

      • I’m not jobless and no Trump is not the best candidate.

      • Joey says:

        Uhm, I’m not sure what Steve is specifically speaking about, but it could be either how Trump whined about it being unfair throughout the debate, or the fact that, once again, he couldn’t stop sniffing the entire time. Either way it doesn’t look good for him.

      • Jen says:

        “Trump is by far the better candidate…” Source?

      • Temperance says:

        He’s a candidate for a mental institution. Nothing else.

      • Mary says:

        Not jobless and Trump is 10000% the worst candidate. Also the tissue remark was because Trump has a terrible habit of snuffing through the debates. One might question if he is a coke user.

  5. Melissa says:

    They did a horrible job. They were unfair and attacked Trump every chance they had.

    • Temperance says:

      I guess you live in a different reality than the rest of us. Trump totally bombed that debate, and the moderators did a really good job considering they had to deal with a sociopathic nitwit with ADD stalking around the stage making threats.

    • Mary says:

      Let me guess you want Hannity don’t you. If asking questions, which is what the debate was about, an attacked then both you and Trump are really clueless.

    • Terry says:

      I agree, they attacked Trump like they always do. They act like no one likes him. The political people don’t like him. Some one must like him because he is standing there. He is funding the majority of his own campaign. No candidate has ever done that. All she does is try to raise more money to fund her campaign. She has millions of dollars but she is not going to use one cent of her own money. I would like to see her tax returns. I bet she has lots of write offs and deductions.

      • Mary says:

        Believe you me by the time Trump is done he will get his money back and then some. Have you seen what he is charging the party. Must be tough to be so naive.

  6. Melissa says:

    Martha was by far the worst commentator I’ve ever seen.

  7. The first ten minutes were an assault on Trump. Perhaps warranted to some extent with this being so recent. When Trump FINALLY attacked back; everything hit the fan for Hillary; and it appeared that the moderators decided to shut-up. Not sure why this happened; but Trump completely obliterated Hillary tonight. After the first attacks; I believe the moderators were quite fair with the questioning; a little pro Hillary on the control of time and rebuttals.

    • Dude says:

      Just because he spent 40 minutes talking over everyone and throwing temper tantrums doesn’t mean he “obliterated” her. The content of what he says is a little important and that content was a bunch of lies and empty threats. He actually had to be schooled on the military by the mods and said that he can’t even agree with his running mate. He further proved himself to be a fool.

  8. Gary Taylor says:

    How did you frakkin know about my sister-in-laws coworker”s?

  9. John NYC says:

    One in three? He’s such s whiny twit. Small hands…..

    Sputotised ge can grab anything.

    • John NYC says:

      Sigh.
      Surprised he can grab anything.

      My hands otoh obviously too big for my phone keyboard. Lol

      ETA: do moderators get hazard pay? Martha covers combat zones routinely but they both earned their pay tonight.

  10. Tim says:

    Was waiting for Martha Raddatz to join the candidates on stage.

  11. So while I have to admit the debate was difficult to moderate, and she said everything I was thinking…I think Martha did go full mom scolding her unruly kid on Donald Trump. Again I loved her comments but she went in.

  12. Mike says:

    Cooper has a reputation of being pretty unbiased in his news coverage and interviews, and while I disagree with many of his opinions on politics and feel that he is, in fact, biased against Trump for Hillary, my opinion is that his bias did not come out very strongly in this debate. Long story short, I think he did pretty good as a moderator. He had his moments of apparent bias (e.g. the first few minutes and when asking about whether Trump did physically what he described on that bus in 2005). However, Raddatz, of whom I know little about, was obviously biased against Trump for Hillary Clinton. From her interruptions and not-so-subtle wordless mockery of Trump and his comments (look at her facial expressions and body language), culminating in her back-and-forth with Trump on Aleppo, it was clear who she was pulling for and on which side of the political spectrum she aligned with. Quite frankly, she failed as a moderator. She was doing marginally well until the exchange with Trump about Aleppo, where she had an immature argument with Trump. To sum up, she was unfair, biased, and a poor moderator. To both Cooper’s and Raddatz’s credit, they seemed more unbiased in the last half-hour or so (but only after repeated accusations from Trump that they were siding with Hillary and not treating him as fairly as they were Hillary).

    I can be long winded, but to sum up: Cooper was a fairly good moderator with little bias and pretty professional demeanor; Raddatz was a poor moderator with heavy bias and an immature attitude.

    • Bite Me Yes says:

      Thank you for your honesty. I pray when Trump becomes POTUS he puts a stop to this type of behavior from the worthless media employees.

    • Temperance says:

      I disagree Cooper has a much bias in news reporting. Please look to the FOX propaganda machine for an example of ‘bias’. He’s had his own show, where that was the point.

      • corners says:

        Thats what he said above. The mods didnt do to well at first, looking liek 3v1. Eventually Cooper tightened things up with the time. You could tell when ti happened not too long afetr trump complained about clinton going over 25 seconds.

        Not too many are talking about it, bit did they ever tell clinton crowd to not cheer while they did? It seemed one sided to me about the crowd.

  13. I have to admit, begrudgingly, that Martha was bias. Maybe not intentionally but she came across as a mother scolding an unruly child. I was there with her the whole way and found myself enjoying her. But moderators aren’t suppose to debate. They are suppose to remain neutral. Had she not interjected with policy and such I would have given her a pass. But I feel she did cross a line. Loved it, thought the same things, but not right.

    • Paco says:

      It’s “biased”, not bias.

      • corners says:

        Seriously? Ive got nothing good to say so ill correct your grammar or spelling…..

        As if you dont use spell check……

      • Michael says:

        When quoting, any punctuation goes inside the quotation marks. In addition, if you are going to compare two words, both should both be in quotation marks. Your sentence should have read: It’s “biased,” not “bias.” If you are going to start correcting grammar, start with your own.

  14. Jim S. says:

    Raddatz was obviously partisan, not only in a bias moderation, but in trying to debate Mr. Trump. She should have learned from Candy Crowley. Cooper was much better.

    • Paco says:

      It’s “biased”, not “bias”.

      • When quoting, any punctuation goes inside the quotation marks. In addition, if you are going to compare two words, both should both be in quotation marks. Your sentence should have read: It’s “biased,” not “bias.” If you are going to start correcting grammer, start with your own.

    • Joey says:

      Candy Crowley actually did her job admirably in 2012. When a candidate LIES about something, it is the moderators’ job to tell them so (as opposed to this year where all the fact-checking happens overnight…).

      • Coop says:

        Actually, no she didn’t. She jumped in and her big “fact check” was flat out wrong. CNN was embarrassed by how badly her night went. I remember watching post-debate coverage on CNN and the analysts were calling her out as nicely as they could. It was among the funniest moments of the 2012 election. Bottom line: if you’re going to place yourself in the debate as a moderator (you shouldn’t by the way), you should at least know what the heck you’re talking about. She didn’t.

  15. Eric316 says:

    They are worst moderators. They attacked whenever they can and not let him response to Hillary comments about him. The debate is 1 vs 3.

    • Temperance says:

      Trump couldn’t follow the rules, threatened Clinton, physically hovered around behind her, and then could not answer a question or follow the 2 minute rules. He was a complete disaster.

      • corners says:

        “Trump couldn’t follow the rules, threatened Clinton, physically hovered around behind her,”

        Lol,she walked over to his podium .What do you want him to do? Go sit on her stool?

  16. Brian says:

    I didn’t understand why Raddatz jumped in and started arguing with Trump on why military announces their plans. It’s not her job to debate him.

    I’m team Hillary all the way, but the moderators did not seem even-handed at all. It seemed like they let Hillary run over a lot more.

  17. Big Cheddar says:

    I think they should cut the candidate’s microphone after their two minutes are up, or at least turn them off during the other person’s time. Their snide bickering was frustrating to watch.

  18. Ade says:

    Neither moderator was ever tough on Hillary at all, they both made sure it was a cakewalk for Hillary. Neither moderator put ANY pressure on Hillary for her basket of deplorables statement. Hillary with her 30 years of being a politician had to know the very minute she said deplorables that it was WRONG! It’s a disgrace for these two people to call themselves journalists and just let the deplorables comment slide; therefore it should e very clear that both moderators in their performance tonight did display bias and are without question pro Hillary! With Anderson working for CNN or the Clinton News Network we should really not be surprised about him seeing how hard CNN is working to put a criminal like Hillary Clinton in the White House.

    • Temperance says:

      Sorry, that’s nonsense. And correct identification is never wrong.

      • corners says:

        “Sorry, that’s nonsense”

        Clitons #1 response to the truth. Claim its a lie or fabricated,like shes doing with wikileaks.

    • Mary says:

      She did know it was wrong that is why she issued an apology. I am glad you brought the 30 years of being a politician. Trump reference last night how she never accomplished anything, which was a lie, proved he has no clue on how the system works. It might have been wise if he took a history or political class before running. All he proved is he wants to lead like a dictator.

  19. Wayne Heuple says:

    Only thing missing were the circus animals…

  20. Carrie says:

    Martha demonstrated complete bias, interjected her political opinions, and was downright rude to the Republican candidate. I will never watch her again! Trump was right to call her out. It isn’t her job to sway voters by acting like some sort of moral compass. Who is she? Notice nothing was said by moderator about Hillary’s lies, murders, or enabling of rapes? And then, of course, what about the dark world we’d live in if she became president.

    • corners says:

      Agreed. I dont gota problem with them calling the canidates out. But at least be fair about it. You coul;d tell she was more of an attack dog than a moderator. Cooper tignted thigns up a little later,but not after a bunch of punches were thrown.

      How often did they tell the crowd to be quit after a clinton cheer? I dont like trump, but for people who felt the primaries were rigged, this is just more of the same.

  21. B.Parrish says:

    Journalists,are not doing their jobs on Hilary Clinton.The moderators are supposed to be impartial.Thats a laugh.They were publicly making their Clinton vote on air,journalism is Dead

  22. Mr. Smith says:

    Horrible. Both were horrible. All I ask is that they be impartial. Be professional. They were NOT.

  23. Val says:

    I was disappointed in Anderson Cooper’s performance I think he could have been more assertive. He was OK but not as good as I had hoped. I was looking forward to his contributions as moderator. After the initial few minutes he seemed to recede into the background. Martha Raddatz was strong but even and more vocal (seemed necessary in the unruly atmosphere). She stepped up to the moment(s) as necessary.

    I see in other fact checking (Politico) that the time for speaking was actually very close with Trump getting 39 min 7 seconds and Clinton getting 38 min 29 seconds (not bad given the atmosphere and interruptions) Trump speaking over the moderators 31 times and Clinton speaking over the moderators 20 times.

  24. Morisot says:

    Media run amuck.

  25. Stan says:

    The moderators defended Hillary.

  26. Nick412 says:

    I swear these moderators could throw rocks at trump during the debate and you Clinton zombies would say they were fair. An absolute joke this has become. And the fact that Bernie would support her seeing all this again is sickening. He has no spine.

  27. Mychael Ford says:

    Anderson does not back down either Trump!

  28. Coop says:

    Raddatz has no business being a moderator again. If you can’t separate yourself and withhold from trying to debate a candidate(s), you shouldn’t be given a moderator slot. It’s not her job, it’s Clinton and Trump’s to counter each other. Cooper wasn’t much better. Holt, on the other hand, was much more professional, knew what his role was and cross any lines. Give me more journalists over television reporters, personalities, etc. They’re way better at doing the job.

    Finally, both of these candidates suck.

  29. Charles says:

    Cooper was superb at calling them to task when the candidates strayed off question. In particular his insistence that Trump answer the question about admitting to sexual assault of women. Trump, characteristically clueless!! Hillery, characteristically elusive and evasive in her responses!! Neither candidate is truthful or honest and neither deserve to serve as President of our Country!

    We are so screwed and it is just tragic! How on earth did we as a nation ever allow this to happen!!

  30. HAP says:

    I thought there were vast periods where Raddatz made Cooper appear to be part of the wallpaper.

  31. phipps davenport iii says:

    cooper tried to give some awkward appearance of being fair, but it still overwhelmingly clear that he is biased against trump. msm basically works for the democratic party. they do stories that garner sympathy and support for the causes and candidates that they want to win. people who do not conform are branded racist and ridiculed by late night tv. the american people are no longer given credit for being able to think for ourselves. it is msm’s job to tell us what to think and how to vote. bought and paid for

  32. Bob says:

    Martha Raddatz came across with anger and dssdain for Trump istead of a non bias moderator

  33. Lisa Echerd says:

    I remember the past Town Hall debates as having more questions from the attendees and more complex questions. In the first half hour there were only 2 questions from the attendees. The moderators steered this where they wanted it to go. They did a better job than Holt did of keeping things moving.

  34. Phukk Cooper says:

    Are you kidding me? It was about as biased against Trump as you can get…open your eyes, that phaggot was a disgrace.

  35. Carol Rundle says:

    They need to keep a candidate’s mic off except when they’re answering a question, and if they go over, they need to shut off the mic. Too much disrespect for the American people going on.

  36. Mercado says:

    Going into the 2nd Pres debate, after the release of Trump’s bungling taped comments (really, they weren’t surprising to anyone, were they?) 2 days prior, I had expected that the moderators would keep the debate “on-point”, and direct the candidates to respond to the issues. I was sorely mistaken — I’d have gotten more from an episode of “Survivor”. When did such an important time every 4 years become such a divergence from intelligent rhetoric, and formulated delineation of the candidates’ views we’d all like to hear?

    The moderators were outrageous, and their display of lack of judgment and any professionalism should have been kept off the campaign stage.

    She attempted to debate a candidate and constantly interrupted Trump.

    Yet another propaganda piece on behalf of the ever dwindling Clinton believers

    Anderson Cooper should quit his day job and just campaign for Hillary. When he is ready to get back to impartial journalism maybe he could go back to reporting. In the meantime I have zero respect for him and his clear bias. He is no less a bully than any other person on the stage. His reporting is a joke
