Debate moderator Lester Holt deliberately geared his questions against Donald Trump to skirt the possibility of being demoted by NBC, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee charged on Tuesday.

"If Holt didn't slant the questions and drill down harder on Trump, he might find himself exiled to the Siberia of TV news channels, MSNBC. Who can blame him for wanting to avoid that?" Huckabee said on his official website.

"I'm hearing a lot of complaints about bias, and they're not unjustified. Some of the bias was by omission; for instance, Holt devoted a ridiculous amount of time to the long-past-its-shelf-date birtherism story. (News flash: Obama isn't even running this year).

"Yet [he] never brought up the Clinton Foundation and its pay-to-play scandal, the immunity deals the FBI handed out like pizza discount coupons to Hillary insiders, her family's enrichment through speeches to Wall Street banks and foreign nations with business before the government, her plan to greatly increase the flow of Syrian refugees."

Huckabee said Clinton "kept giving shout-outs to her 'fact-checkers,'" which he called "the greatest misnomer of 2016."

"To save her, Holt answered her call, repeatedly arguing with Trump on her behalf (actual fact-check: Trump's claim about the constitutionality of stop-and-frisk was correct)," Huckabee said. "But there's no point in a Republican whining about the moderator being a biased liberal. It goes with the territory."
