Alex, we’ll take “Questionable Side Hustles” for $200!
For reasons unknown, Jeopardy host Alex Trebek moderated a gubernatorial debate in Pennsylvania Monday night, and critics definitely framed their distaste for his performance in the form of a question.
“Horrible gubernatorial debate moderators for $1,000. Who is Alex Trebek?” Pennsylvanian Republican strategist Mike Barley asked The Reading Eagle, while communications expert Charlie Gerow noted, “He managed to get booed by the audience. They clearly were not happy.”
Things got off on the wrong foot right from the start when Trebek (who’s a native Canadian) opened the debate between Democratic incumbent Tom Wolf and Republican challenger Scott Wagner with a gotcha question about the Philadelphia Eagles.
