Much has been said about last week’s Presidential debate. The liberal media have combed through the footage, searching for nuggets with which to attack GOP nominee Donald Trump.
Yet the overwhelming response from viewers was that Trump handily beat rival Hillary Clinton. This, despite some strange and shady behavior on the part of democratic nominee Clinton and moderator Lester Holt.
We talked about how the impartial Commission on Presidential Debates exhibited partiality towards the democratic nominee, to whom they gave far more money to that Donald Trump. Critics had argued that the commission could not be trusted to put on a fair and balanced event, considering this imbalance in their views.
As it turns out, we were right.
From Daily Caller:
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.”
Anyone who was watching from home would not have noticed the technical defect, but the fact that the audience in the room had trouble hearing Trump is a serious problem. At an event so big, so important, it’s impossible to believe that this was just a slip up.
Technicians would have been testing the equipment hours before the guests arrived. Had there been an actual issue with his microphone, they would have replaced it immediately. This screams of intentional tampering on the part of the commission, or someone responsible for the audio levels in the hall.
It would have been real easy for an anti-Trump audio person to lower the volume of his mic and not report it. If a higher up complained, they could have pleaded ignorance.
Either way, this warrants investigating. Whoever dropped the ball, intentionally or unintentionally, must be held accountable.
