An economic advisor to President Donald Trump was filmed describing Trump’s performance in the presidential debate last month against the Democratic nominee, Joe Biden, as “crappy.”

Stephen Moore, whom Trump has previously described as “a great pro-growth economist and a truly fine person,” made the remark on October 2 at the Election Protection Summit in Washington, organized by the pro-Trump group FreedomWorks. HuffPost published the footage, which was obtained by Documented, a watchdog group.

“It was not a great performance by Trump,” Moore told the crowd. “In fact, I thought it was a pretty crappy performance by Trump.”

Moore also said Trump put in an “awful” performance in his first debate with Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee.

“Oh my God, he was so bad in that debate, just awful,” Moore said.

But he said that Trump “rallied” and “clobbered” Clinton in the next debate and that, “God willing,” that’s “what’s going to happen” at the next debate between Trump and Biden.

Moore added that he thought the election would be “really tight,” HuffPost reported.

Biden has described Trump’s performance at the debate, in which he spoke over Biden several times and made several false statements, as a “national embarrassment.” At one point during the debate, Biden told to Trump to “shut up,” and Biden later called him a “clown.”

When asked by the debate’s moderator, Chris Wallace, whether

An economic advisor to Donald Trump was filmed describing his performance in the recent debate against Joe Biden as “crappy” in newly-released footage from earlier this month.

Stephen Moore, who Trump has previously described as “a great pro-growth economist and a truly fine person”, made the remarks earlier this month at the Election Protection Summit in Washington organised by pro-Trump group FreedomWorks.

“It was not a great performance by Trump; in fact, I thought it was a pretty crappy performance,” he told the crowd, in footage published by Huff Post and acquired by Wisconsin-based watchdog Documented.

Moore also said that Trump had put in an “awful” performance in his first debate with Democratic candidate Hilary Clinton in the run-up to the 2016 election.

“Oh my God, he was so bad in that debate, just awful,” Moore reportedly said at the event on October 2.

However, he added that Trump had “rallied” and “clobbered” Clinton in the next debate and that “God willing” that is “what’s going to happen” at the next debate between Trump and Biden before next month’s presidential election.

Moore added that he thought the election would be a “really tight.”

The first televised debate between Trump and Biden took place at the end of last month and received mostly negative reviews.

The 90-minute debate was characterised by repeated interruptions from Trump and

Disgraced Financial Advisor To Ex- NHL Players Sentenced To 17 Years In Prison

Former NHL player and 1995 number one draft pick Bryan Berard was one of several people who gave emotional victim impact statements in Long Island federal court last Monday, when financial advisor Phil Kenner was sentenced to 17 years in prison for stealing millions of dollars from Berard and over a dozen other former professional hockey players and Long Island citizens in an elaborate investment scheme.

“I guess he got what was coming,” Berard told Newsday outside the Alfonse M. D’Amato United States Courthouse in Central Islip. “Just a lot of mixed emotions. He stole a lot of money from people. Ruined people’s lives.”

Kenner, 51, of Scottsdale, Arizona, was a co-defendant in the federal case with his business partner, Tommy Constantine, a one-time aspiring race car driver. A jury convicted the two men in July 2015 of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. Kenner had remained jailed since his 2013 arrest. 

The case is a jarring cautionary tale for professional athletes who — like Berard’s case — seek business advisors to handle their millions and personal finances. According to federal prosecutors, Kenner and Constantine operated three separate schemes, and lured numerous NHL players — including Berard, Michael Peca, Darryl Sydor and Bill Ranford — to invest their retirement funds and life savings into a Hawaii real estate venture and a start-up business in Arizona.

Instead, Kenner and Constantine used the millions for their own personal gain. In one scheme, according to prosecutors, Kenner was able to convince Berard, Peca and others to give $100,000 each toward a Hawaii land development project. Kenner
