President Trump called final debate moderator Kristen Welker « extraordinarily unfair » after highlighting a presentation in The Post about her family’s ties to Democrats

« She has always been terrible unfair &, like most Fake News reporters, but I will continue to play the game, » the Commander-in-Chief tweeted on Saturday after his son Don Jr shared The Post story

“People know that! How’s Steve Scully? He asked, a sarcastic reference to the C-SPAN political editor who was suspended after lying about being hacked after being labeled a ‘never trumper’

Trump also attacked Welker at his Saturday night rally in Janesville, Wisconsin, after sarcastically referring to « totally impartial anchors »

« We have another one coming next week, » he said, then naming the NBC News correspondent in the White House

« I’ve known her for a long time, she’s extraordinarily unfair but it’s okay », the president told the crowd

He also referred to the fact that Welker’s Twitter account was deleted on Friday, reappearing on Saturday, suggesting it was to avoid a repeat of the Scully scandal

NBC told the Daily Mail that the temporary freeze on her account was simply to keep her safe « She checked internally, made sure there was two-factor authentication and reactivated it, » said a spokesperson

The Post revealed on Saturday how Welker was previously a registered Democrat and his family donated thousands to the party In 2012, Welker and his family celebrated Christmas at the White House with the Obamas

An NBC spokesperson told Politico that Welker had no party affiliation since registering to vote in Washington, DC, in 2012

The representative highlighted comments made earlier this month by Trump’s campaign adviser Jason Miller, calling the White House correspondent « very fair » and « very good choice » as a moderator of debate, Politico said
