The Commission on Presidential Debates issued a one-sentence statement Friday admitting that Donald Trump’s audio was impacted during Monday’s presidential debate at Hofstra University in New York:
Regarding the first debate, there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall.
Trump complained about his microphone right after the debate:
Did you notice that? My mic was defective within the room. No, but I wonder, was that on purpose? Was that on purpose? But I had a mic that wasn’t worked properly, with, working properly within the room.
The microphone was noticed during the debate by Ben Domenech, who tweeted at 9:15 p.m., “Trump’s mic is too hot.”
Trump was roundly mocked and ridiculed by the biased media wing of the Democrats’ party and Hillary Clinton for complaining about the microphone:
“Anybody who complains about the microphone is not having a good night,” Clinton told reporters.
And then there was Howard Dean’s way over the top comment.
