The FEC has admitted that the microphone Trump was given as the first Presidential debate was defective.
Given the unbelievable opposition to Trump, you have to wonder if this was purposeful. But purposeful or not, this admission can only feed the many tin foil hat theories on the internet purporting to show Hillary cheated in the debate.
One theory claims Holt colluded with Hillary via her facial signals.
That one seems a little thin given the time lag between her signals and Holt’s responses. But maybe Holt and Hillary wanted to be a bit smoother than Obama and Candy Crowley. Or maybe Hillary just has a very, very, very itchy nose. Who knows?
Other theories say Hillary was using an ear piece which was speculated to be a hearing aid, an anti-seizure device or a coms device to allow her campaign to help her during the debate.
Did Hillary Cheat? Now you have to admit that’s some weird stuff going on under that dress. Could it just be a bad case of scoliosis and a very well behaved rectangular growth at the base of her spine? Maaaaaaybe … or not.
Lastly, and of course, there is the old “she had the questions in advance” theory. Reportedly:
After the debate a strange man quickly rushed the stage and picked up Hillary’s notes off of her podium. This stranger then handed the notes to Holt as he was leaving the stage. The Odd Man
So, given all the internet swirl over whether or not Hillary cheated, a admission by the FEC that Trump’s mic wasn’t working properly seems like small potatoes. But you have to wonder why Trump’s people didn’t catch it before the debate, or why he didn’t ask for its replacement during the debate. Does Trump want to fail? Does he have a Brutus in his campaign? Did his technical people mysteriously miss the debate? Ah … sweet conspiracy … don’t fail me now!
Hey, where’s my tin foil hat at?
