Media outlets set debate to battle over Trump’s 100 days, but something’s ‘off’ with balance of the panel

President Trump fired back after it was announced exactly who would be judging his first 100 days in office.

Intelligence Squared is hosting a debate on Monday titled “Unresolved: Trump’s First 100 Days,” and the deck is stacked.

On paper it tried its best to make it seem fair by inviting liberal Jamelle Bouie of Slate, Trump detractor Ian Bremmer who is the president of the Eurasia Group, Trump supporter, Kansas Secretary of state Kris Kobach and conservatives Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post and the National Review’s Rich Lowry.

On paper it looks, to the casual observer, like a three to two advantage for President Donald Trump.

That is, until you realize Lowry and Rubin are far right Never Trumpers, making it a four to one advantage for the anti-Trump faction.

The audience will be asked to judge each debate topic to determine whose argument was the best, and judging by the advantage it doesn’t look good for the president.

That might be why President Trump tweeted on Friday that the “media will kill” now matter what he does during his first 100 days in office.
