After Monday night's presidential debate between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump, a number of Americans noticed that the moderator — NBC News's Lester Holt — seemed to focus the more difficult questions (and four real-time fact checks) on Trump.

That tendency did not go unnoticed by Trump's personal guest at the debate, Benghazi survivor Mark “Oz” Geist.

Geist appeared on Fox News's “Sean Hannity Show” on Tuesday evening, along with former Defense Intelligence Agency Director (and fellow Trump supporter) Gen. Michael Flynn.

Geist noted that Holt missed several golden opportunities to challenge Clinton, particularly on the subject of Benghazi:

"It just goes to show the bias that was there with the moderator—with Lester. They never followed up on any question. They [therefore] missed an opportunity to show America the type of leader [Hillary Clinton would] be.

We have to look and see if this is the type of person that we want, they're going to be leading our country, that ended up putting people in harm's way for strictly her political gain."

Flynn also attended Monday's debate, and was equally dismayed by Holt's failure to ask questions about the Benghazi attack:

"Let's get down to brass tacks: the 'birther' issue was raised and Benghazi was not raised? The 'birther issue' did not result in four dead Americans [or] a failed nation-state in Libya.

For that not to have come up is unbelievable."

The candidates will next face off on October 9th in a town hall-style debate at Washington University in St. Louis.
