NBC News anchor Lester Holt will be moderating the first debate on Monday between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. In an interview on Fox News with Bill O'Reilly of the O'Reilly Factor last week, Donald Trump said emphatically and as a matter-of-factly: "Lester is a Democrat." Lester Holtanchors the weekday edition of NBC Nightly News, a prestigious gig that he currently holds and is in good company with such legends asChet Huntley, David Brinkley, John Chancellor, and Tom Brokaw, among others. An esteemed group to which Lester Holt is a great fit as a reporter, journalist, anchor and a man of integrity and impartiality.

Lester Holt a registered Republican in state ofNY

Donald Trump might have a legitimate complaint against Mr. Holt and his party affiliation were it not for one simple thing: Lester Holt is a registered Republican, as evidenced by public records. The New York state voter form shows clearly that Lester Holt is a Republican.

Donald Trump contended in the Fox News interview in reference to Lester Holt, "It’s a phony system. They are all Democrats. It’s a very unfair system.”But Time.com uncovered the public record, a record that Donald Trump and his campaign team could have easily discovered.

On MSNBC's Morning Joe on Monday morning, Trump campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, was grilled by those around the table about the whopper of a lie told by her boss.

Kellyanne Conway was pointedly asked by Morning Joe guest and Bloomberg politics host and author, Mark Halperin, how could he says such a "black-and white factually incorrect” statement that Lester Holt is a "Democrat." Conway was flustered and said “I don’t know that he knew what Lester Holt’s voter registration is.” Halperin slammed back asking how could he say such a thing without knowing the facts, without knowing the truth.

Conway then played the "media is unfair against Trump card, claiming the media is "overly populated with Democrats." Conway then made the outrageous statement""A lie would mean that he knew the man's party registration." That set off the Morning Joe panel.

Halperin slammed Conway for not answering whether Trump lied about Holt

Halperin slammed hard at Conway and it went unanswered,saying that Trumpmade a factual claim about the moderator who deserves the right to be treated fairly and it was just wrong. Halperin said that is a "metaphor for his frequently in public stating things with no basis, that are wrong.” Halperin did not let up on Conway and simply told her she was not answering the question she was asked. Essentially, why did Donald Trump lie. That is an answer the public will address on Election Day.
