Michael Reagan: Hillary, Trump Both Struck Out at Presidential Forum

Newsmax TV's "The Steve Malzberg Show"

Neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump emerged as the winner at Wednesday's NBC forum on national security issues, Michael Reagan tells Newsmax TV.

"They both lost. When you have to send surrogates out the next morning to quantify what you said the night before, then you're not in a winning position," Reagan, a veteran political commentator and the son of President Ronald Reagan, said Friday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"Both of them had to send surrogates out to explain that what they said really isn't what they said or what they meant. And I think that in that way, they both in fact lost."

The Commander-in-Chief Forum aboard the decommissioned Intrepid battleship in New York City, has been heavily criticized because of the performance of moderator Matt Lauer, host of NBC's "Today" show.

Among the criticisms are that Lauer hammered Clinton for too long on her email scandal and cut her short as she tried to answer national security questions, while he let Trump off the hook, allowing questionable statements to remain unchallenged.

Spokespersons for both Trump and Clinton were sent out on the news and talk-show circuits on Thursday to clarify various statements their candidates made — a Monday morning quarterbacking that Reagan said didn't look good.

"Now I'm sure the Trump people support Trump, the Hillary people support Hillary, but you shouldn't' have to send surrogates the next day to explain the mistakes that you made within the context of those interviews," Reagan told Malzberg.

Reagan is the author of "Lessons My Father Taught Me: The Strength, Integrity, and Faith of Ronald Reagan," written with Jim Denney and published by Humanix.
