Took the wife to breakfast this morning after church and work and tried to sleep with no luck but eventually crashed in the afternoon and woke up to find that Donald Trump complaints about his microphone during the debate, that everyone derided him for making, were valid:
On Friday afternoon, the Commission on Presidential Debates confirmed that Trump did indeed have a microphone that was at least somewhat defective.
“Regarding the first debate, there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall,” the commission said in an unfortunately brief one-sentence statement.
John Sexton at hotair says this:
I’m not going to engage in any conspiracy theories about why Trump’s mic went out but I do wonder why it took the Debate Commission until Friday afternoon to put out this brief statement admitting it happened. Clearly they knew this was a problem Monday. They also must have known it became an issue once the media began reporting Hillary’s dig about complaining about the microphone. That would have been the appropriate time for the organization responsible to come forward and admit there was in fact a problem.
Given that the debate commission’s silence for a week was a defacto in kind contribution to the Hillary Clinton campaign and their release of their statement on a Friday afternoon admitting Trump was right seemed to me in the tradition of news dumps meant for minimum exposure, I take offense at the use of the words “conspiracy theory” in that paragraph, but in all the crow eating and told ya so’s there’s an important point everyone is missing here that perfectly illustrates the difference between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump has decades of experience in broadcasting and because of that experience he was able to recognize a defective microphone in front of him and had no problem saying it was so in the face of the derision of everyone else around him.
Hillary Clinton has decades of experience in government at the highest possible levels yet was not only unable to recognize her handling of classified material as defective, but kept insisting it was proper even anyone who had any experience in handling such info knew it wasn’t.
