Trump Really Had a Bad Mic, But He Still Cratered The Debate

The Commission on Presidential Debates issued a one-sentence statement Friday:

Regarding the first debate, there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall.

Trump’s been saying his mic was bad since he left a smoking hole at the end of Monday’s debate.

“I had a problem with a microphone that didn’t work,” he said on “Fox and Friends.” “My microphone was terrible. I wonder, was it set up that way on purpose? My microphone, in the room they couldn’t hear me, you know, it was going on and off. Which isn’t exactly great. I wonder if it was set up that way, but it was terrible.”

“It was on and off, and it was much lower than hers. I don’t want to believe in conspiracy theories, of course, but it was much lower than hers and it was crackling, and she didn’t have that problem,” he added. “That to me was a bad problem, you have a bum mic, it’s not exactly good.”

“I don’t want to believe in conspiracy theories.” That’s rich. Comedic even. Maybe in the next debate, Trump should pay for the microphone.

Oh, yeah, he should also prepare more than eating a bucket of KFC on the way to the auditorium.
