Kristen Welker is getting a lot of praise tonight for how she is handling the final presidential debate!
The journalist, who works for NBC News, is the first black woman to moderate a presidential debate since 1992 and people think she is the best moderator of the election season.
The debate is taking place on Thursday night (October 22) in Nashville, Tenn.
Things were a bit different during this debate after the first one featured the candidates constantly interrupting each other, even during their 2 minutes of time that was supposed to be uninterrupted. This time, their mics are being muted while the other one has their uninterrupted time.
The current president made comments about New York City during the debate and those comments are being slammed by many.

Let’s just take one moment to acknowledge the incontrovertible fact that the Black woman is the best debate moderator this election, hands down. Don’t give too much credit to the mute button. Kristen Welker is doing a phenomenal job. #Debates2020 #PresidentialDebate2020

What a brilliant job @kwelkernbc is doing. Poised, confident and in control—while at the same time allowing a free exchange between the candidates.

America owes a debt of gratitude to @kwelkernbc, who is keeping this evening the most civil and substantive of the #Debates2020 by calmly, authoritatively, and evenly *managing* this debate. #LikeABoss

My wife Emily jokingly asked our five year old daughter to point at the TV & pick which person she wanted to be our president. When the moderator #KristenWelker showed up on screen she yelled “HER!”.
The future is looking very bright.
