After Trump-Biden debate, Internet declares moderator Kristen Welker the real winner

One question garnering praise for Welker is one that appeared to be directed to all White Americans.

NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker is being praised today for her calm, able performance moderating the final presidential debate last night in Nashville. 

Welker, 44, was the only person of color chosen to moderate a debate during this presidential election cycle. She was tasked with helping ensure a smoother event than the candidates’ first one-on-one exchange on Sept. 29, which saw Fox News’ Chris Wallace largely lose control while both President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden shouted and interrupted each other.

Chris Pratt Story About Giving Away Cat on Twitter Resurfaces as Internet Declares Him the ‘Worst Chris’

Nobody’s purrrrfect, but Chris Pratt trying to give away his cat on Twitter is far from ideal. After a recent tweet asking folks to eliminate one of Hollywood’s Chrises (Hemsworth, Pratt, Pine and Evans) went viral, an old story about Pratt resurfaced, recounting when he tried to give away his aging cat online.

“[U]nless one of them other than Chris Pratt once gave away an old cat because it was too much trouble to take of, he’s definitely the one who’s canceled,” Twitter user Shauna wrote, alongside a link to a 2011 Gawker article titled “Anna Faris’ Husband Gave Their Cat Away on Twitter.”

“I’ve loathed him ever since that story went public almost a decade ago (plus his s**tty attitude when he was called out on it),” Shauna added when replying to another user. “[T]hat poor cat must have been heartbroken.”
