While NBC News' Kristen Welker was widely lauded for moderating the second and final debate, too many questions were left unanswered, according to legal expert Alan Dershowitz, a self-proclaimed Democrat, on Sunday.

"Why wasn't Joe Biden asked, 'Is the laptop really your son's, and are the emails on the laptop what he actually said?'" Dershowitz told "The Cats Roundtable" on WABC 770 AM-N.Y. "No hard questions."

Dershowitz said the debate was "awful" and Welker "was terrible" as moderator.

"I know everybody else thinks she was great," Dershowitz told host John Catsimatidis. "She was like a school teacher who at the end of the day came back and said, 'You know, I had a great day at school today. I kept the kids from fighting with each other. I put on the mute button. But I didn't teach them anything. And I didn't ask them any hard questions.'

"I thought they were softballs all over the place. No hard questions."

Notably, Dershowitz told Catsimatidis, Welker gave Biden too many passes, particularly on foreign policy and Israel relations.

"When, for example, Joe Biden said, 'We're abandoning all of our friends in foreign policy' – the follow up would be, 'Really? What about Israel?'" he added. "We moved the embassy, we recognized the Golan Heights. What about the Arab Emirates? Created peace between Israel and Arab countries.

"'Isn't it the Obama administration and Biden that abandoned their friends when they made the deal with Iran?'"

"No follow up questions! And that's not what we expect from a moderator. So I was very disappointed with her."
