Trump’s Microphone was Defective, Officials Admit

(Before It's News)

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) admitted what Donald Trump has been alleging all week. Trump maintained that his debate microphone was defective, making it difficult for the Republican candidate for President to be heard in the debate hall Monday night.

Immediately after the debate ended, Trump said his microphone was having problems. Trump even suggested he was given a defective microphone as part of a conspiracy. Media jumped on his comments as “sour grapes” for what they saw as a poor debate performance.

Now, as it turns out, Trump was right all along. The new admission by CPD will only fuel more conspiracy theories. reports:

“Regarding the first debate, there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall,” the CPD said in a short statement Friday afternoon.

While Trump already has taken a drubbing from political analysts for aspects of his performance Monday, the unusual — and belated — statement from the commission boosts his claim that he was having microphone problems.

“I was a little bit upset that the microphone in the room wasn’t working,” Trump told reporters Monday night.

The question now is obvious. Why did it take four days for the CPD to admit Donald Trump was right? Didn’t they know while the debate was on that there were problems? The lack of an admission will only raise questions that the CPD purposely left Trump hanging for four days. It seems like a deliberate attempt to feed the idea that he was being petty and bitter. Rather than admit that he had a legitimate gripe, the CPD allowed the Clinton campaign to mock Trump’s claim.
