Presidential Debates Admits Trumpís Mic Was Messed Up
Daily Caller ^ | 9/30/2016 | Robert Donachie

Posted on 09/30/2016 11:55:20 AM PDT by combat_boots

The Commission on Presidential Debates reported on Friday that there were in fact issues with Donald Trump’s microphone at the Debate Monday evening at Hofstra university in New York.

Following the debate, Trump told the press that they “gave me a defective mic. Did you notice that? My mic was defective within the room,” CNN reports. Trump posed the question: “Was that on purpose?”

While it may be too early to call it anything other than a technical malfunction, the Commission on Presidential Debates said “there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall.”

How about some forensic study of Hillary’s podium rigged for a portable teleprompter, or her earpiece?

Why didn’t he stop the debate and tell them to fix it?

Typical DEM tactic. Apologize after the horse has left the barn.

Of course not. It could have happened to any other conservative Republican!

Defective microphone for Trump, Clinton earpiece, hand signals, rigged moderator, electronic device on Clinton’s lectern and Clinton got the questions in advance.

The debate was rigged and Trump still won.

Let’s see. The mic was defective. The moderator was erroneously ‘fact checking’ Trump. Trump was interrupted ten times more than Clinton. Clinton had an oddly itchy face, and Clinton was allowed to sucker punch Trump with a sketchy story about a fat beauty queen, that the press was ready to run with. But it was all ‘inadvertent’.

They cheated in so many ways.

Gave the Benghazi Witch the questions, and she them
with a errant FedExNBC operative picking up the pieces
of paper.

Different podium, the Witch’s with electronic cheating.

AND NOT ONE MSM ANCHOR WILL DISCUSS IT.
IT IS ELECTION FRAUD.
THEY BELONG IN PRISON WITH COMEY.

Hmm. Well. “After the fact” seems the appropriate time to address the issue when you KNEW it was a problem during the debates./s

We ALL knew both of their mics were screwy. For one thing, we couldn’t hear Pickles wheeze. Hers was probably silenced in between the comments she barfed out.

Next debate, he should wait until they are all ready to start, then he should insist on trading spots with her. That might be enough to make her faint right there!

I did not watch the debate but followed the comments on FR - many said Trump came across poorly because he sounded constantly like he had the sniffles; the skunk Howard Dean has been braying for days that he must be a “coke head”. This kind of thing throws a speaker off and makes the audience wonder whether he’s the sick one and not his opponent. Yes, what else was rigged in the damned debate? Did she receive the questions beforehand? Did she coordinate hand signals with the openly biased “moderator”, Lester Holt? Did the Debate Commission (consisting of rabidly partisan Democrats like Clinton chief McCurry and two nominal Republicans like john Danforth and Fahrenkopf) order the lighting and other aspects of the stage altered to favor Mrs. Clinton? Trump should pound on this all weekend.

"Was that on purpose?"

Rhetorical question.

Not only was Trumps mic sabotaged intentionally to make him look bad, it sure sounds like Hillary's voice was run through a Milli Vanilli style voice synthesizer to make her infamously grating, finger nails on a chalk board voice sound more mellow and less annoying.
